And gained it back...

Monday, June 24, 2013

Current Weight: 204.8 lbs
Weight Lost this Week: 0 lbs
Weight Gained this Week: 1.4 lbs
Goal Weight: 170
Weight To Lose: 34.8 lbs

Well, I gained back exactly the weight I lost last week. Not surprising, as I attended 3 (yes, 3) dinner parties this week (June is a crazy time in the school system and we celebrate this by adding on retirement parties, staff dinners, etc.) I thought I was making reasonable choices, but I did have more alcoholic beverages than I normally would and more dairy.

Anyway - my mind feels okay, so I'm not stressing about this. I actually feel like I'm making good progress in my head! A neat thing about SP is that your logs are there for ages, so I went back through all my old food logs and exercise logs from two years ago when I was first losing a steady amount of weight every week. I noticed some great patterns...was eating less than I am now, restricting certain foods, and exercising daily. So all I'm going to do is focus on this past success. I know what has worked for my body in the past and I'm going to do that again!

Have had a very good weekend. Am working this program!

Happy Monday!

    Great way to take one step back & two steps forward ! You'll absolutely have success again by focusing on what you can do now & not what has happened that we have no control over.
    I just had a binge yesterday after weeks without one. Did well all day, but ate too many cals tonight. Not a binge, just hungry. last ate at 5:00. At 10:30 I was starting to get cravings so I had to eat something so I didn't binge, but live & learn I guess.
    Tomorrow is a new day for us to start some positive streaks!

    Great blog ! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I also work in a school. Our crazy time for food is the holidays, (October on) although for some reason we find ANY occasion for food.

    It does take focus to keep on track. emoticon
