Headed In The Right Direction!

Monday, July 18, 2016

One of my last blogs was about reaching a milestone weight loss goal of 100 pounds. Well, I gained 19 pounds since that blog entry. When I weighed myself yesterday, I had lost 6 of those pounds. It is hard to lose weight but I think the disappointment in gaining some back is harder to deal with. I think I will just file it away in the "Don't cry over spilled milk file," and savor the six pound loss. At least I saw a loss on the scale and not further gain.....but I expected the scale to show a loss as one pair of the jeans I brought to Washington with me are no longer tight, but fit perfectly and the other pair of jeans that were loose are even looser. If I lose much more weight while I am here.....and that is my goal.....I will have to shop for new jeans. It is not easy, but I am working hard on eating better and being healthier.

    Sometimes I find myself on a detour before I can keep going. Each meal/snack/drink is a new chance to make a good choice. I try and focus on that. Good luck!

    Good for you! Never give up, weight loss is not linear. We all have our ups and downs. You have done amazing so far!!! We can do this!
