Weigh-In ... Not surprised

Today's weight:  225.0
Loss/gain this week:  + 1.0
Total loss so far:  - 6 lbs.

In all honesty I wasn't surprised about this gain considering the past week; and last night I really didn't care what the scale was going to say.  I didn't pig out on anything, but I do know where I ate a little too much of high-fat-content foods.

Some non-scale positives are that I stayed faithful to exercising every day, even when I didn't feel like it, and I also stayed away from regular soda this week for the first time in a long while.  I opted for diet when I felt I really wanted a soda.  That's a big step, because it seems I've been drinking regular soda for so long now. 

I know I can't make excuses for myself going up and down and up and down, so I won't try.   I really have no desire to be on a strict diet, but I am realizing that in order to lose the weight I'm going to have to be a little more careful about my food choices.  I have the knowledge I need to make it work.  Now I just need to stick to it and get it done.   


  1. Leah, don't drink diet or use any arifical sweetners. They are not good of you. They are hard on your body and hard for it to digest!
    If your going to have a pepsi have a pepsi but only allow yourself to have 1 a week. The natural sugar is actually better for you. Your body can digest it a lot better.

    It's good that you are keeping up on your exercise. You are going to be healthy. Keep it up Leah!! Your going great.

  2. Leah - I really think that you are almost there in your mind. In my weight loss class when someone is totally "there" with the head knowledge, a lot of times what helps them is to track what they are eating. If you haven't already, it might be a good idea to find out how many calories you should be eating, and track them for a few days. I didn't count calories as a rule, but occasionally I did to see where I was. Just a thought!
