Days until vacation: 11 - Back to square one

I struggled even logging in to SP this morning. After my weigh in, I knew that there was a harsh reality that I was going to have to face. I was going to have to enter my weekly weigh in. And there I was, back at square one.

My weight is back up to 221. I'm very upset, frustrated, and perplexed with myself. I went from 215 to 221 in 5 days. I didn't binge eat [yay] but I also didn't stick to my calorie plan [boo]. And because I knew my weight was going to go up anyway, last night I just said 'screw it' while at the Cici's buffet. Is any of this anybody's fault but my own? Nope. It is not.

So that leads me into the "what do you do now?" part... well, since I'm back at square one, and I had already been down 6lbs, I have to follow my own lead. I knew what I did to lose those pounds, I just have to do it again and keep doing it. Vacation is 11 days away, so I know my mini-goal just is not going to happen. But that doesn't mean I can't back on track and get close. The important thing here is that I DO NOT fall back into old habits and I need to forget that "Screw it" attitude. Moving onward and upward (or downward, I suppose).

So here's to square one.... and possibly getting back to square six

    I highly doubt that you gained 6 lbs of fat in 5 days so you're not back at Square One. Sometimes when we overeat the next day our weight can balloon and it's impossdible that, that's fat. I think that because of the night at Cici's that may be what's happening to you. Try weighing again tomorrow or if today was bad too, work hard tomorrow to stay in your calorie range and then check your weight the next day!! I'm sure you're likely to see that your weight hasn't changed that much!!

    Either way emoticon on having an emoticon attitude!! That's exactly the kind of attitude that will get you to your goals!! Just refocus and get as far as you can with your mini-goal and when you get there push hard again for another goal!! I'm cheering you on!! You have the spirit to succeed!! emoticon emoticon

    For me weighing in weekly isn't enough. I need to log my food daily.

    Awww, ya'll are the BEST! I really hope it's water weight. I also started a new BC pill so maybe that is coming into play? IDK but I really am taking getting back on track very seriously!

    Sparkers are really just the best emoticon

    I agree that there is a really good chance that its just water weight. Some of that pizza can be high in sodium which could lead to your body holding on to the water. Either way you've got this emoticon . Just keep your water intake up and doing what works for you emoticon !

    Keep going girl :D I think we're all going to have those 'screw it' moments and ya know what. It's ok. You just have to dust off the crumbs and get back to it :D
    Gaining the weight back in just 5 days sounds like your body is holding on to water for some reason. Just get back to what you were doing and that weight will come back off plus some!
    Don't give up and kick some booty!
