Today’s Weight: 183 . 0
Loss/Gain: +1 . 5
Total Loss So Far: – 48 . 0 pounds
I knew this wasn’t a good week, and I wasn’t expecting a loss, but still the thought that went through my head when I saw the scale was, “Dang it!” I’m a tad frustrated, but more like…well, I can’t explain it. I’m not “I can’t do this!” blah, blah. Just…dang it!
Plus, whether I like it or not I have to admit that I am also still very much in need of certain things in my weight loss journey, namely tracking my food.
Last night we watched this week’s episode of The Biggest Loser and when two of the contestants chose not to use their trainer for the week I thought it was no big deal. When they didn’t do as well at the weigh-in and linked it directly to that choice of working out on their own I still wasn’t convinced it was due solely to the trainer not being with them all week.
Then I thought about my last two weeks. When I’m PMS’y I get that I-don’t-care attitude, but I usually still track for the most part. Also, I may not track that larger meal I allow each week, but I still keep up with everything else. These last two weeks I didn’t do that.
I haven’t tracked my food in almost two weeks, and whether I like it or not I apparently need to do that to help me stay focused on what’s going in my mouth. Apparently, I’m still not at a point where I am honoring the hunger signals my body gives me. Honestly, I hate to admit that, but it’s the truth.
So, I am admitting my need to track my calories and committing to tracking food again. As I said yesterday, it’s all about priorities and what will help me be successful. I will be successful in my weight loss journey. I will focus on my priorities. I will never give up.
Thanks for checking in and have a great weekend!
