For an unknown reason, this past week was a really rough week. It was bad in all sorts of ways. I didn't get my steps in, I didn't do my workouts. I didn't get my walks in each day. I took the skytrain instead of walking to work 3 days.
I don't know what was with me this week but it wasn't a good week in so many different ways. It didn't help that it was also a hungry week. I seemed to be constantly hungry this week and although I tried to stay within my daily points, at the end of the week I had used more than 20 of my weekly bonus points. I have never used them in the past.
I only earned 38 activity points instead of the usual 60-70.
It all added up today and clubbed me over the head with a gain.
Not a little gain like it was a month ago, but a major gain.
I gained 2.4 pounds in a week.
2.4 pounds! I am back to having lost under 60 pounds, and I was so proud of hitting that 60 pound mark. I'm now at 59 pounds lost. 2.4 pounds doesn't seem like much but to me it is huge.
I will not let this get me down though. I will not let this side track me. I will not let this be an excuse to binge.
I am in control. Me. The person I want to be is in control and I will get over this hurdle.
I have a poster up in my office, and the words on it were never more true than they are today.
"Of course it's hard! It's supposed to be hard. If it was easy, everyone would do it"
Losing weight is hard. I've had it too easy for too long, but no more. I will get the upper hand and I will succeed!
