I've been feeling a bit like a failure lately with my food issues and the difficult time I've had making positive choices. I didn't let it completely get me off track, but I was feeling a bit disappointed in myself. I was planning to do my normal weigh-in on Friday and figured I'd do a quick weigh-in today just to see where I'm at, since I haven't weighed myself for quite a few days probably since my last weigh-in actually.
I step on the scale hoping it's not higher than last time, hoping it's at least gone down a little and I weigh in at 197.8 lbs! Talk about a boost. I know you're not supposed to let the scale rule you, but I needed a little reminder than I am doing a lot of things right. I'm trying to eat more vegetables, I'm counting calories, I'm drinking lots of water, I'm taking a multivitamin every day and I'm exercising and, believe it or not, it is making a difference.
It's easy to let one wacky weigh in get you down, but now I can see it was more of a temporary gain. It was my time of the month and my body was working on getting rid of some of the foods I had indulged in over the holidays. I think since those two issues have worked themselves out my weight has gotten down to where it's supposed to be given what I've been doing most of the time which are the right things.
I know this is a process and I thank god I started this blog. There may not be a ton of people that read it, but for the few that do I feel like I owe it to them to post what's going on, to post my feelings good or bad. And what starts as me just posting because I owe it to them turns into me posting because it's helping me sort out my feelings. Here's to a good rest of the week!
