Katie: Week 42

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...

Be kind to yourself Katie! You have a lifetime to be at your goal weight (except for the times you're pregnant, of course...)

You have a busy weekend coming up, and that may be a little setback. But it's only a little setback!

I know you can. I know you can...
