Well that’s annoying. I was just hoping to lose 0.4. I thought that would be an easy number to achieve! I have no explanation for the gain. It just goes to show that our bodies don’t always cooperate. Maybe I’ve had more sodium this week. Maybe it’s hormones. Maybe it’s just fluctuation and tomorrow I will show a loss. The important thing is not to let the scale rule my emotions.
I am proud of my behavior this week. I did eat out multiple times, but I stayed on plan and tracked everything. I found a way to fit eating out and having a doughnut into my budget. That’s real life, and I am working for find balance. The behavior is more important to me than the number on the scale, but I still want to see that number! 😉
It’s frustrating because I don’t feel like I deserve the gain this week, but I know I have had weeks where I lost when I wasn’t expecting it either. I am so close to my goal that every pound seems to be monumental right now, but the weigh-in only measures one point in time. I’m still down more than 90 pounds. I’m still wearing size 6 pants. My shirt still fits like it should.
Annoying? ABSOLUTELY. Catastrophic? NOT AT ALL.
One week doesn’t define me. I got this.
