Singin’ the Weigh-In Blues
Cue the dimmed lights, set up my mic and get the piano player his drink; it’s time for the Weigh-In Blues.
Normally, I try to weigh-in twice a week, on Monday and Friday. On Monday my weight was 236 and today, it’s 234. 236 is the highest I’ve seen in over a year of my 3 year weight loss journey. Today is going to be a test in my ability to beat the weigh-in blues, and not give up on the progress I’ve made so far. My rational brain is telling me that a 2lb loss is VERY good and a healthy number to go by, but of course, my not-so-rational-emotional-eati
ng-fat-shaming brain is telling me that it’s not enough, that I should have worked harder.
*jazz scatting commences*
I will NOT eat after I see my friends’ show tonight. If I have anything, it’ll be hot tea.
I will NOT give up on my healthy eating today or any day.
I WILL go on my lunch hour walk today.
I WILL do my best to stay positive.
I WILL get glammed up tonight for the show because dang it, I need it.
*hits high notes, the crowd is entranced*
From now until the end of the day, I’ve got to stay focused and I’ve got to help myself get out of this funk. Despite the sadness, I’m beyond proud of myself for sticking to my program and I now have a 2lb loss to show for it.
*end song on a low, sultry note; crowd goes wild*
Have a fantastic weekend SparkBuddies, love you.
