I think I did the 5% challenge backwards...

Saturday, November 30, 2019

I had a weight gain instead of maintaining. This final weigh - in and looking at my starting weight - this is my wake-up call. I need to really focus and make better choices with what I am choosing to eat - read here: more vegetables, vegetables and some more vegetables.

I was attempting to clean out the freezer so I could defrost all the ice-build up and have not been buying the lower calorie dense veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, etc. Instead, my freezer was full of all the starchy one like peas and corn and this was with the potatoes and beans I was eating; all higher calorie dense foods.

I apologize to my team mates...

    Sorry you didn't make your goals. But I am sure you learn something along the way/

    Do you graph your weigh-ins so you can see trends? I find it very helpful. On the other hand, I only lost a fraction of a pound at the end of the challenge and as of this morning, have undone even that.

    At least you realize it now and can be mindful of it moving forward. Just think of where you were in the very beginning of your journey and where you are now. Even going backwards a little is growth because it has made you aware of what to change.

    This is why I find weighing myself so helpful. I catch a slip fast and can turn things around. Sounds like you are doing just that.
