I Have a Confession.

Saturday, October 12, 2013

This week has been *horrible*. Because I've had an extremely busy schedule and the beginnings of stress, (those are my excuses, and I'm sticking to them!) I've let myself go these past several days. As a result, I'm not weighing this week. I've been losing consistently every week for the past few weeks, and seeing a spike in the scale would be very disappointing...even though I've done this to myself. I've had an overload of pasta, sweets, Chilis, soda (and I rarely drink soda anymore)... It's been bad and I'm feeling it in my body. I know deep down that I've gained this week, but I don't want to know how much. I will work hard again in the coming week, and weigh then. I just wanted to put this out there in hopes of getting some encouragement! It's needed right now...

    I am right there with you. Being tired and busy is a horrible combination for me, which I have been in the past few days. Just finished a coke and a snickers bar- enough said. We know better so we feel we should do better, but sometimes coping skills go out the window. Still have more to learn. Don't be too hard on yourself. Just move forward and upward!

    We have all been there and know exactly how that feels. You have to remind yourself you are human and this journey is for the rest of your life. There will be ups and downs, but you have the power to choose if you are going to turn it around. :) The scale is going to have a huge jump in the beginning due to all the added sodium, so I suggest drinking a lot of water for starters...or even get some coconut water. It helps hydrate you and get rid of the water retention. Also, just take it one day at time. You don't have to change your entire life over night. Small changes will add up. Keep us update...we are here for you!

    I feel the same way about weighing myself when I've had a setback. I know that it would de-motivate me if I saw a gain. I only weigh myself now when I know I've been doing well for awhile. emoticon
    We all have those kind of days and weeks, just keep moving forward, emoticon It's just part of the journey! emoticon
