Like I told you all last week, I promised to go weigh in and report back to you.
I gained 2.8 pounds.
It had been three weeks since I have gone to weigh in. I was on vacation and then chose to go to the zoo.
So, how do I feel about the gain? Relieved and disappointed all at the same time. I have gone on vacation and gained 7 pounds and I have gone on vacation and lost weight. Why did I choose this time to gain instead of lose? When will I get back on track?
I am happy that I went and weighed in. It wasn’t as bad as I was expecting but it gave me a re-starting place to go from. Ignorance is not always helpful. Sometimes we just need to buck up and face the scale so we can move on!
It is now into July. I go back to school on August 6. My weigh in for the school weight loss competition was 191. I have a new goal for August 6 when I go to weigh in for the final weigh in of the competition. I want to weigh 180. That will only be a loss of 11 pounds and it probably will not be enough to win but that will be 8 pounds down from where I was Friday morning when I weighed in. I will be satisfied and content if the scale says 180 or less that morning, August 6.
How am I going to achieve this and get off this teeter totter I have been on? Two things:
Tracking and Walking
I know it works. I know I feel better when I do it. So, for the next 4 weeks, I will do it.
Track and Walk
Track and Walk
Track my eating and walk my legs. I’ve got this!
How is your summer going? Are you on track with your weight loss goals? If not, will you commit to track and walk with me?
