Well, I am sad today…..I gained 1 pound back this week..but we did celebrate my Birthday last weekend so I should not be surprised, but of course I am. So I am back around the 15 1/2 pounds lost mark. Which is hard because I have been walking everyday also.
It’s hard as a female because we can fluctuate 3+ pounds per day and certain times of the month we will be heavier if you catch my drift. And that might also be just me making excuses! I also think it is hard beating myself up over 1 pound….but when the total loss is small it is easy too. Maybe down the line a 1 pound gain won’t feel this bad when I cross a larger milestone.
I have been doing WW for 16 weeks and what I have lost adds up to 1 pound per week, and that is ok. That is the WW average. I do have a new goal….I want to be at 20 pounds lost by Memorial weekend! I will say I am proud of myself for getting right back on track when I falter instead of thinking “Oh well, I gained I might as well pound some donuts”. So I will try to focus on the good instead of beating myself up.
