Yep. A 5.4 lb gain.
That’s a good reality slap right there!
You know what, though…? So what. I’ve had a great year. I stopped exercising for a week or so, I ate anything and everything that I wanted – and hello - that’s what happens! No shocker about that! But I am not going to beat myself up about this.
I do know that I am certainly NOT going to continue on that path. And this is a good wake up call as to what will happen if I don’t reign things in right now. I don’t want to go back to where I was 60lbs ago. I’m a little bummed that I’m back in that next set of 10s, but only by .6. I’ll bet by next week, with getting back on track and drinking a ton of water – I’ll be back there in no time.
I went out shopping today to use a couple gift certificates. Everything was picked over and I just didn’t have the patience to go through everything (I really just wish they had Garanimals for grown-ups). I was thrilled to discover that I was able to fit into a pair of size 8 pants!!! Ok, granted, it was likely the brand/cut/style – whatever – but I don’t care. I got them on! So yay me! I didn’t buy them because the style was weird (ankle pants? Looked like floods, to me) but the fact that I got them on, zipped, and wasn’t oozing out of them, was something to celebrate.
So fine. I’m up 5.4 this week. Who cares. I’ll own it. The holidays come but once a year – so it isn’t sticking around.
Betcha I’ll proudly post a loss next week!
