Just having a little pity party for myself...
Current weight: 134 pounds
Last week's weight: 134 pounds
Total weight loss: 36 pounds
I was so good last week. At the beginning of the week. And then toward the end I got lazy. And had a birthday party for my sister in law with a yummy cake and some yummy ice cream. And then our weekend got busy. But I did go for a walk every day and Bryan and I did go running three times. That in itself was a big accomplishment. But it's sad to think that I was down to 132 in the middle of last week and then got back up to 134 again. Especially since yesterday I went on two walks and went on a really good, long (for us) run with Bryan. I expected/hoped to at least go back down to 133 by this morning. But instead I went up to 134.4. What gives? I'm feeling a little frustrated.
Then when I was checking the calendar a little big ago to see how many weeks we have until Christmas I was caught off guard by another something sad about my progress. It's the middle of October. If I had been following my calorie intake and exercise plan that I created on MyFitnessPal some months ago I would be at my goal weight right now. And I'm not. Boo hoo hoo.
I'm trying to make all this lead me to a feeling of determination rather than defeat. But it's hard. It's hard not to boo hoo over the whole thing. I could be where I want to be right now! But I didn't do the work. Sigh.
Here's to another week of trying.
I think I can. I think I can...
