Last Weeks Weight 177.5
Today's Weight 175.5
Total Loss: -2 lbs
Today I was doing the Happy Dance as I stepped off the scale. I surpassed my goal to reach my pre-cruise weight. It basically took me 2 weeks to undo the damage from a 4 day cruise! WOW!
My next goal I have set for myself is to reach the 160's by April 30th ~ my trip to the Bahamas and NYC. Losing 5 pounds seems doable.
I have been doing my Friday Weigh-Ins since September 2009. It's my way of assuring complete awareness of my health. I have struggled with my weight most of my adult life and my biggest weakness has been my ability to avoid the scale when I know I have made poor choices. Avoiding the scale is my minds way of tricking me into thinking I have gained weight overnight. No, the weight did not come overnight, it was during the period when I stopped being vigil.
Without a doubt the most difficult times for my Friday Weigh-Ins are when I know I made poor choices or I am in a plateau. Now, I force myself to look but I don't beat myself up over the results. I tell myself to log it and move on. It's not always easy to avoid belittling myself because I didn't have a perfect week. But, I think it's important not to pretend it hasn't happened either.
But for today, I rejoice and thank God for a good weigh-In!
