Weigh-In … Hot 100 Update #2

Today’s Weight: 185 . 5
Loss/Gain: + 1 . 5
All I can say is that letting myself go for an evening and one day was not conducive to staying on track the rest of the week. *sigh* Last Friday night I went out for a girls night and ate too much dessert. Then Saturday we went to a local pizza parlor to watch the OU vs TX game (Boomer Sooner!!) and though my husband shared some antipasto salad with me I also ate pizza, and crusts, and more crusts and more pizza.
Unfortunately, I planned thought I would get back on track the next day and chalk it up to one calorie-heavy 24 hours, but that didn’t happen.
Jodie asked earlier this week why we fail after success and I told her for me it’s over confidence in my abilities to stick with my plan. I should add that I think I have weight loss ADD – I don’t stay focused for long periods of time.
This is why I put myself in this challenge for the end of the year…to make myself stay focused for more than a day on my weight loss. I’ve now had one good week and one bad week…time to realize I really have to focus every meal. every day.
Lori also mentioned that losing the weight is only 1/4 of the battle – Oh my!! I’m in so much trouble if that’s the case… Just kidding, Lori…kind of. I think for me, it will be half, because I’m seeing what it requires to lose the weight and keeping it off will require continuing the healthy lifestyle. I seem to be able to maintain just fine this year though. *sigh*
I did exercise 3 days and am on my way to the gym this morning for the 4th this week, all 50-60 minutes of cardio, so that is good.
But needless to say, my challenge update isn’t positive this week:
1 pound down
19 pounds to go
11 weeks left…argh…

    Just found your blog and had to comment about weight loss ADD. I think I have it as well. I have lost 80 pounds and am trying to get the last 10 stubborn pounds off. It was almost easier to lose 80 than these 10. I can't stay focused long enough to get there. I finally reached out to another blogger who also needs to lost the last 10. We are in a friendly competition to see who can do it first. The loser has to send the winner a care package. So far this has really helped me stay on track. Anyway- I am so glad I found your blog and look forward to sharing your successes as you lose these 19 pounds!!!

    Your perseverance AMAZES me!!!
    Thanks for being a wonderful role model of this, I need it!

  3. Don't let a small gain get you down. You can erase the indiscretions of last week and more this upcoming week. You can do it!

    Great job on getting the exercise in Leah!


  5. Hey, I think I have that condition, too! It's so hard to keep focused, I find, for long periods of time. Let's face it, it's boring sometimes, right?

    But then we get back and keep going. Yay!


  6. Weight loss ADD – I *LOVE* that! =)

    You are going to get back on your horse and ride this week out with victory, Leah, because a little oopsie like that is not going to trip you up permanently.
