1 week, plus 11 pounds (update)
Friday, December 18, 2009
A couple of weeks ago, I gained 11 pounds in one week. In my last posting, I basically admitted I messed up, and was now back on track.
Of course that was day 1 of being back on track, and I just wanted to give a quick heads up, to say I have managed to keep to it. Last week I lost 2 pounds and I have already lost 2 pounds so far this week.
It is interesting re-losing the weight I gained, celebrating each pound off for a second time is different. Getting back down to 199 will not be as exciting as the first time, but I know it will mean more. I have been humbled by the weight gain and that is postitive.
Today was an exciting day for me. I was named motivator of the day. I am writing at 8:30pm, and so far I have had 58 comments left on page, fantastic words of encouragement, and I am stoked to be honoured, though embarrassed by my very recent slip up.
So will I have another week with another 11 pound gain? I hope not, for sure I don't have the same confidence that I had a month ago. Will I have to measure every thing that goes into my mouth for the rest of my life? Hmmm, this is a journey that I still need to figure out. Whilst I am determined on weight loss, I am good, but in another 20 or 30 pounds time, I will be ready to maintain, and will need to face that challenge.
