My weight fluctuates a LOT. I am up over 5 pounds this morning (still down 11 this year) I am posting here to try and prevent the self-sabotage I usually have when I see my weight up. Yesterday I bought size 18 pants that fit because my size 24 was just about falling off. I can see in my photo I am losing weight. Here is what happened: After a good week of healthful eating and exercising I ate a chicken & cheese sandwich Wednesday (I am Vegan normally & LOW salt). Then Thursday I had to drive 2 hours round trip to an important meeting where I had to sit still for 8 hours, with only a 45 minute break, in the middle to eat – I was not anticipating this and my “healthiest” lunch option was a premade ham & cheese sandwich (in a shop full of pastries & no other shops in sight). I asked, this was the only non-pastry available and there was not a fruit or veggie in sight. Driving there and back added up to 2 hours when all was said and done. Since the meeting ran so long it was a rush to pick up my kids and get them home for a very late dinner. My old habits kicked in and I got everyone a (fast food) hamburger… So I could have made better choices, but it is a new day and I am trying to just not worry about the # on the scale and make healthy choices for today. Wish me luck.
