It’s weigh-in day again. I was definitely worried this week! Once again I exercised 6 days this week, but 2 of those days I rode my stationary bike. It was a break for the feet and knees, plus it’s in our bedroom and I can watch my shows while I exercise.
I was not as good with my eating this week. Monday I had dinner with a friend and a few drinks, and then Thursday met the Hubs for lunch at a new place, Major Munch so I knew it could get ugly.
I’ve been doing this for awhile (about 3 years) so I have learned a few things:
1. You can do everything “right” and not lose or perhaps gain.
2. Other factors are key. Stress, sickness, or those lovely monthly hormonal changes can affect you.
3. The numbers are not important!! This is the HARDEST one for me to accept. You WANT to see change. You WANT to know all that hard work is doing something.
I suggest measuring yourself for a progress checker, or that pairs of pants that are tight right now. The scale may not show you that it’s working, but the smaller measurements and better fitting clothes will!
Last Week’s Weight was 167
This Week’s Weight also 167
Normally I would be upset by this, but I am human. I cannot be perfect all the time, and I don’t want to be. I like splurges and treats. Depriving yourself too much will sabotage you (I did that the first year)
How are you doing with your weight or getting healthy goals?
