Regain, Relose

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

A few weeks ago I was going up and up and up in weight. I have lost 60lbs at one time. When I went on meds I started to gain. Over Christmas I gained almost 20lbs in 2 weeks. Nothing came off.

My Weight Watchers leader told me to stop looking at my weight, stop weighing in at home. Just to do what I am supposed to do.

Well I did the first part, failed a bit at the second part of her advice. I'm trying but I'm giving in WAY too much.

Stepped on the scale this morning and I'm at 255. I have lately been as high as 263 so I am so happy to see something lower. I want to stop seeing the 250's forever. I thought I had then I seemed to have welcomed them back.

I made it part of my goals this week to track my food everyday. I really need to get back to the 230's where I was.

    Wow ~ can I ever relate! I've done WW 3 times (I'm a lapsed Lifetimer from back in the early 1980's). I so remember that feeling of just wanting to me out of a particular "decade" and just be done with that. But I keep relapsing and regaining my weight and having to face those numbers over and over again. It isn't WW's fault. It's mine. I quit measuring and tracking and going to meetings, so I have no accountability to anyone but myself, which apparently isn't enough. So I'm basically starting all over yet again!

    The one thing I can tell you is that if you keep doing it, it WILL work. It's never as fast as we want or as straight line (all losses) as we want, but it WILL work. And as long as you keep tracking and measuring and following the plan, you WILL get there. Each day you'll be closer than you were the day before, regardless of what the scale says. Quitting...? Well, that's only a huge detour!

    I'll be cheering you on!
