Day 28 - Weigh-in

Today was WI, and like I predicted, it was disappointing. I gained 1.6 according to my scale, and 1.4 according to Weight Watcher's scale. I was prepared for the gain, but it still sucks. It especially sucks because I stayed on plan and did everything I was supposed to do. I'm holding on to hope that next week will be better, after Mother Nature goes away for another month. But the thing I am happy about is my overall change in attitude. Any other time that I've tried to lose weight, something like an undeserved gain would have sent me into a binge mode. I would have said f*** it, and would have pigged out. I might have even quit altogether. But now I am not depending on the scale for victory. I know I am making positive changes, and I know I will see results because of that.

Another decision I made today is to start getting up early to exercise. I've tried to do this before with no luck, but I'm going to commit to it for at least three weeks to see if I can make a habit of it. I just know it's the only way I will be able to fit the time in to exercise every day. I HATE getting up early, almost as much as I hate exercising, but I have to do it. Or at least try!

You're doing something great by taking control of your life and your food. Remember, YOU are the boss, not the food!!

I bet next week you'll have a good loss. Your body is just greedy & hanging on to a pound or two during TOM to frustrate you.

Good luck!

Don't get discouraged.

There is a saying that I like:

"You always get what you deserve on the scale, just not always in the week you deserve it."
