Loss/Gain this week: - 0.5 lb
Total Loss So Far: - 12.5 lbs.
After such a large loss last week I was really nervous that maybe it was all a fluke and I'd be up this week. It's not that I overate really, but I was worried that maybe it was too large of a loss and I'd be up this week to even things out.
Before getting on the scale I kept thinking, "Please, even just one pound down or a maintain...anything but a gain; but if I show a gain I can't let it ruin my day." (deep cleansing breath, hesitant step on the scale...) When I stepped on and saw "218.5" I was relieved. No great loss, but no gain either. Whew!
I was a teensy bit sad that it wasn't more because of the back-to-school challenge, but I was so relieved that it wasn't a gain that I couldn't let myself worry about that fact.
I'll just keep working on it and do my best to be patient. :)
