Sally Pineapple - I think most of us have obsessed over our weight. Sometimes we weigh more the day after eating a bit more and its not that big a deal, i mean, being at a healthy weight means we will sometimes eat more in certain occasions, right? What has made me gain weight in the past was an all or nothing mentality, so if i ate more than usual in one day I'd feel so discouraged i wouldn't go back to eating my usual healthy meals.... i'd just give up.
0.4 lbs is such a small variation! It can happen to anyone.

Thank you Marina Brasil. I was thinking that I had gained over 5 lbs like I did last month when we went out of town overnight. That stalled me for a week. I freaked for no good reason and they don't have a delete button on here
I was very happy to see only the small gain instead of the mountain I created out of a mole hill.

My mom has been visiting since the 26th, and she's been pushing me at every turn, both pressuring me to eat more things I would normally turn down, and criticizing me when I try to work out. I'm trying to stay focused, but I can't wait for her to leave.

I do this ALL the time!

I was just talking to my husband about this very thing, this weekend. We had a fall festival on Friday, we had to eat out for lunch on Saturday, had a wedding shower (late afternoon) on Saturday, had a business dinner at a clients home on Saturday night and homecoming Sunday aftersoon! I told him that the thing with me is that I KNOW this is part of making a lifetime change to my eating habits. I can't live in a bubble once I get to my goal weight so I'd better not try it while I'm on my way. BUT once I get to my goal weight, if I have a weekend like this....and put on a couple/few pounds......I won't have as big an issue with working to get it off. It's that feeling of wasted time and effort that I get when I gain, while losing, that is so discouraging. I know that it is all part of the process; gaining and stand stills while losing is a NATURAL part of it......BUT it still throws me every time!

Just don't give up and don't beat yourself up over it!

I was very proud of myself this weekend. I did have a chili dog and a cookie at the fall festival but I had very little for breakfast and lunch. I ate a reasonable amount at lunch Sat (you know, about half what I would have eaten before), had a handful of grapes at the shower (instead of cake and all the other goodies), a reasonable dinner with the clients (even had the dessert that she served me), and ate a nice meal at homecoming (but skipped supper).

All of that may not seem like much to some, especially those who don't have the addiction to food that I have, but believe me it wasn't easy, but it also wasn't as hard as it would have been 2 months ago. It's a journey, a learning experience, don't beat yourself up over one day. Chin up!

And, Jill, take your own advice here! LOL! I need to come back and read this when I'm having "one of those days"!

September 6 = 207.5
Sep 12 = 207.1
9/18 = 206.7 Halfway there!
9/22 = 206.4
9/29 = 206 This is gonna be a close one!
