Weigh-In Wednesday

It's completely psychological, but John and I decided to change our weigh-in day to Wednesday. Besides giving me a catchy alliteration title for my weigh-in days, it also gives John and I a couple of days to recover from a potentially bad eating weekend. Which hopefully won't happen every weekend anyway, but you never know. Did I mention how depressed I was from my Monday weigh-in this week? I want to avoid that happening again at all cost.

So here is my Wednesday weigh-in: 168.4 (down .06)

The fight continues

I hate it when I'm doing so well, then the weekend comes along and you have date night (lots of wine), then dinner with family (including dessert), twice, and then it's Monday and you feel like crap.

That happened to me this week.

I was doing sooooo great last week, then Friday rolled around. It was fun, the food was great, but when Monday morning weigh-in happened I had gained back 3 lbs that I had lost. So now I'm still at 169.

On top of that, I'm having a hard time getting back into it. I'm back to drinking coffee with sugar/cream & my lunch is whatever I can scrounge up. Dinner is still good, but I'm also back to snacking after Holden goes down.

I really need to learn to keep my motivation UP and carry it through the weekend. The weekends really do me in. I have such a hard time turning down delicious treats :(

Do you have any tricks for staying motivated? Especially when faced (literally) with a dessert offered to you, under your nose? I'd love to hear any tips you have!

I'm doing good!

Since the last post, I've really been watching what I eat, and it's been paying off already. I'm down 3.5 lbs!! OK, for the sake of full disclosure, I fibbed in my last post... I said I was 169 (which I thought I was) only to weigh myself and see it be 172.5 *ugh ugh ugh*. So now I'm 169 for real *ha*, and that's just in a bit over a week, by only watching what I eat, no exercise!

Next step: get a swim membership. I think it's pretty much the only exercise I enjoy, not to mention it's no impact so good for my knees. I'll be buying myself a 6 month pass to Nepean Sportsplex, which is just down the street from us. I'm sure the first week will be 2 laps and done *ha*, I'm so out of shape, but hopefully it'll pick up with regular visits.

I'm back

I'm back on this journey. It's so hard. I sabotage myself at every turn. It's a horrible feeling. I'm up to 169 pounds the heaviest I have ever ever been. I'm not chubby, I'm not plump, I'm fat.

John and I were eating pretty well for 3 days, then John thought we deserved a treat and bought me a chocolate bar. I can't resist once it's in my hands. I'm totally weak. I'm one of those people that needs to have zero temptation in the house for this to work for me.

So I ate my chocolate bar. Now I'm back to feeling like crap, but today is a new day. Onward we go.
