Yo-Yo December 11, 2009
So the last couple of weeks has just been like a yo-yo for me. Last week I ended up gaining 4.5lbs and then I didn’t blog about it because I was embarrassed. Hilary reminded me that I need to blog about the bad times as well as the good, so here it goes. So this will be about the last two weeks really. Right before my weigh in on the 4th I started my TOM and I am going to blame part of my gain on that. I can not however blame all of it on that. For the last couple of weeks we have had candy and cakes at work and I can’t say that I have been good at resisting them. I have tried to “snack” in moderation, but my job has been stressful lately and I have sometimes “helped” the stress by eating candy. I have noticed however that when I do that I don’t really even feel better. I am stressed from work and I feel bad because I could resist eating the “fun size” Twix or what ever was in the bowl. This past week I have done better but I haven’t been totally on track. I lost 4.5lbs this week so I am happy about that. It makes me think about what I could have done if I would have just stayed on plan. So this week I am going to take it one day at a time and if I mess up it doesn’t have to ruin my whole week, or even my day. So I am hoping that the next time I post I can say that I have regained some of my willpower and have made better choices. Here’s to a good week!
