Right Back at One
Tuesday, August 31, 2010
Well, after eight days of insanity, I gained three pounds. Probably about half of that is water from the massive amounts of sodium in Diet Coke I consumed on my way home from Atlanta yesterday in an effort to keep myself awake. Since I had lost four pounds, that means I am right back at -1 pound from start. Blech. No fun. Normally, I would give up in frustration at this point, but not today. In that regard, I am not back at one: I am in a place where I know life happens sometimes, and we just have to pick ourselves up and try, try again. I also feel more confident than I did a week ago. I feel like I know who I am and where I'm going. I know that I am obese and I do want to get down to a healthy weight, but I no longer feel like I have to do that before I can be beautiful. At least I don't feel like that today--knowing me, I will probably feel like that in the future. For all the inner stuff I have learned this week, a 3lb gain seems worth the price.
