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.
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...
