This is such a critical time period for me. I am hovering at 252 on my home scale, I have been doing good for almost a month, and this is typically where I would completely stop--for whatever reason. Last time (October) I remember I stopped because one day I stepped on the scale and it was 249 ish and I was soo excited. Then I realized that the scale itself was not in its typical tile square and moved it back to his home (just the next tile over). I stepped on it again and it was back to 254 ish. **SIGH** Was so excited to make progress, but realized I really didn't make as much as I thought I had, so I stopped. I gained back those stinking 10 pounds only to start again in December.
I must be aware of this time, focus even harder, commit even more, and break through this 10 pound wall. I fought this wall several times, at different weights, only to gain back 15. Not this time. I must keep going, I must not stop now. I am on my way. I had to keep telling myself this exact thing this morning. Our work caters breakfast and it smells soooo good. I walked up to the table and decided I wanted some. I got a scoop of scrambled eggs and fruit. I made it out of there without the muffins, bagels, bacon, home fries, oj, and cinny rolls. WHEW. I ate my small plate happily and logged it quickly. I will be just fine for the day.
