I weighed in at 252 Friday morning, which is 1 lb away from where I left my ticker at 3FC, ha. I did that during a heat wave too, which makes me feel extra proud of myself. I expect to fluctuate a little next week due to the extreme weather, and because I didn’t exercise (walk) as much either (Thursday and Friday). I’ve managed to find that diet and exercise balance to see weight loss at a good pace (10 lbs in about 5 weeks), a very fast pace for me, the snail loser. I also lose in a jagged line way — three of the weigh ins had me at 255, then whoosh, 3 lbs came off. I think it had to do with TOM. As long as I’ve been doing this, I still had that doubt in my mind that I was screwing up somehow and needed to change something I was doing. It’s mentally tough keeping the faith when my calories are low and I really feel like I’m focused and my weight basically stays the same.
I am dying to be back in the 240s again, and when I see the 3 lb-loss it feels eminently possible. I hate that I let that hope and confidence plummet when there’s a little backtracking, due to indulging too much, or the weather, or both. I do feel healthy, physically and basically with my outlook towards food and eating and exercise. I just have to plow forward and keeping finding success. A picture of cygnets becoming swans fits well in here!
