It happened again...but this time it's different

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Apparently I am not ready to venture off the reservation. I thought I was, but in five days away from home I gained almost 7lbs. I was certainly relaxed while away, but I worked out three of those days, and honestly don't think I had eaten that badly. Quite likely the biggest culprit was the two driving days eating at stops along I-95.

The last time I gained weight I literally lost my head...convulsed in tears...the works. This time, I stepped on the scale, shook my head in disbelief, and shrugged. Instead of panicking, or getting upset I am choosing to focus on all the good decisions I made while we were traveling: I worked out, I passed on cake, I didn't feel the need to clean my plate, I drank lots of water.

I am doing better than I was before. That's a good matter what the scale says.

    I think its great when you get to a point where you don't have a mental breakdown when the scale rises. The point is to be healthy mentally AND physically--something a lot of people ignore in the pursuit of being physically appealing. But what happens if the weight creeps back on? Do you just resign to failure?? You know how to be healthy and that's your #1 weapon. :)
