Got some good news today.
But before I get to that. I want to tell you that I'm back on track!! Got my food, water and exercise under control today. Which is so awesome. I really feel a lot better when I'm doing my plan. I actually had a ton of energy today!!!
Now for my good news.
As you know I was gone over the weekend for my nieces wedding. I realize today, that I can't blame anyone, except myself, for not being prepared ~ food wise. I have to get it in my head that this is my responsibility. Anyway I did not plan well, ate out too many times, felt like I made bad choices and over ate. AND I HAD A HUGE PIECE OF WEDDING CAKE, NUTS, MINTS AND PUNCH!!!
It never ceases to amaze me that when I'm away from home, I forget that I'm working on a healthy lifestyle. Get me 10 miles from home and I lose my mind!!! Geez!!
Anyway last night I was disgusted with myself and really beat myself up all over the place.
Yeah, I did not have my regular healthy food, but I could have made better decisions on what I did eat.
Nuff said about all that.
Here's the good part.
On Friday, before I left I weighed in at 229.0.
This morning, dreading every minute, I jumped on the scale and it said.....
Only .6 gained?
Really this is the best Monday morning weigh in I've had since January. I always weigh in at least a pound heavier than I did on Friday. I almost never have a loss on Mondays, I'm always up and then during the week sometime I lose some pounds.
I am soooo excited!!!!
I guess I really am getting this. I did do a better job than I thought. Even all of my running around must have counted for some exercise. Who knew?
I am thrilled!!!
This weekend really gives me hope that when I do get this weight off. I can still live life. I can make mistakes and I don't get rewarded with a 20 pound weight gain. I may have a little penalty for bad behavior, but it does not end my program or my maintenance. I just get right back to it and keep going.
Whoo Hoo for me!!!
I think this is progress ~ What do you think?
