A Little Discouraged

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I weighed in today to find I'd lost only 0.6 lbs. After losing 2.2 lbs my first week back on the wagon and another 1.6 lbs last week, it's a bit discouraging to see that I dropped less than a pound this week. I know I should consider it progress because it was a loss, albeit a small one, but I'm disappointed.

I'm not giving up though. I did have a couple areas of weakness this week so I'm going to focus on getting those back in order. Hopefully next week the scale will be feeling more friendly.

Self-compliments for the day
1) I had my 8 glasses of water in before noon.
2) Making an effort to go to bed by 11 has helped with the constant tiredness that plagues me.
3) I'm actually stopping and asking myself "Are you truly hungry?" before eating.
4) My daughter's artwork got selected for the local art show.
5) I got a good lead on a job for hubby. If he can land this job, he'll be making over double what he makes now, which means we can pay off all of our debt and buy a house.

    Well, you already know this, so I'm just reminding you: weight loss is always quickest right at the beginning and a fair amount of that is water weight, not actual fat loss. You were hoping for more than 0.6, I get it, but that's nothing to sneeze at.
    Are you tracking your food? You don't have to make the tracker public, if you don't want to, but it;s really useful for your own information to know what you're eating and when.
    Are you getting in any exercise at all? I really like wearing a pedometer. It helps me keep track of whether I'm moving or not. Never mind setting any big goals... just maybe try to take a few more steps than you did the day before.
    Take at look at the Spark videos that are free here on the site. Look for one or two that look doable, just to get the blood moving.
    These things help me to keep going, even when the scale isn't telling me what I want to hear. Maybe you could pick just one thing that you aren't doing yet, and add it to your plan for the rest of the month. See how that works.
