252.5 Weighed last Friday and my weight was up. Then I proceeded to have a series of indulgent days and nights; celebratory Japanese meal with co-workers, lunch with family at gourmet burger joint, stroopwaffle and kettlecorn snacking. I engaged in comfort eating last week which is why I didn’t lose and don’t expect to lose this week after all the eating and lack of exercise. I tried to start over this past Sunday but yesterday I ate crap. I am also not going to the gym.
I am in exactly the kind of place where I began to re-gain all the weight that I lost the last time I did WW. Stress eating is my downfall. I am trying to look at this as an opportunity to confront this issue. I have reset my weigh in day so that tomorrow I start a new week. I plan to start over. I did this when I quit smoking over 10 years ago. I relapsed and then I just went on not smoking. I can do this. I believe in myself.
I have to give myself some credit because the only thing I have gotten at a drive-through window during this whole two week episode is an unsweetened Ice tea. That is progress. I ams staying home tomorrow but will go to the gym Friday after work. I can do this thing; take care of myself no matter how stressful and crazy my work/life is. I have to do this because it is the most important thing.
