One Month traveling without my weight loss support group very hard, but back on track now

Friday, January 01, 2010

Well, happy new years to all! I haven't used Sparkpeople as much as I had thought I would since leaving home on November 30th. I haven't tracked my food as often as I should. I have had a gain of 8 lbs over the past month. At home, every week, I go to my Tops support group and weigh in on those scales. Even though I brought my scales with me, somehow getting on there (or putting off getting on there) seems not to carry the same "weight" (pun intended) as getting on the scales at my group and announcing to my fellow tops members how I did that week. I'm tracking my food now and I'm going to open it up for all the world to see my daily tracking on Sparks. I know I can "kick this 8 lbs to the curb" and reach my goal. I know that this 8 lb gain is not anything to be proud of, or happy about, and maybe I'm minimizing it, but I know that I have been eating way better than I used to. And out of a week, I've been sticking to my meal plans four out of 7 days at least. I know that isn't good enough for weight maintenance, or loss, but I know this hasn't been a complete waste. I'm learning, and know what I have to do to turn things around. Here's to a great 2010 to everyone. Let's make this our year to shine!!

    Thanks for your words of encouragement. It is very hard to have the gain. I worked so hard, especially the last 10 lbs, and just like that, to see those scales climb so easily. I went for a 4 mile hike with hubbie this morning, and I know what I need to do. I'm trying to figure out how to turn on my food journal online?? Does anyone know? Thanks.. sharon

    I know how discouraging it can be to have a gain. I gained 5lbs over Christmas, but it came off really fast once I started eating how I normally do and exercising. These times will happen and all we can do is try to eat the best we can in the moment and get back on the wagon.
