Well, after 10 straight weeks of losing, I knew that when I stepped on the scale this week, that would not be the case. I didn't have a bad week, but sometimes you just KNOW. I ate out a couple times, and while I stayed within my points, I didn't eat as healthy as I should have. And because of that, I am retaining some serious water. The extra sodium, coupled w/my slacking in the H20 department meant a 2.2 pound gain.
We're all going to have our weeks where we gain. Sometimes it's because we were off track... and sometimes our bodies are just saying "hold up there!". I had two weeks that totalled a very big loss... 10 pounds in 2 weeks is NOT natural, so having this 2.2 pound gain slows my progress a little, but it aids me in the whole "healthy weightloss" thing.
I will admit that I had a bad night tonight food-wise. This is the first night since joining WW in August that I've had a night where I let the food control me. I knew I had 35 flex points to use or lose tonight, since my points start over on Wednesdays.... and use them I did. I think it's a horrible excuse for a binge to say "Oh, but I had the points", so I'm certainly not making any excuses. I own up to what I did. We ordered pizza. And eat pizza I did. I believe in indulging responsibly, so I can usually have 2 pieces of thin crust & be totally satisfied. But tonight was another story. We got regular crust, and I hate 3 pieces. And 3 breadsticks. It was a bad decision, and I definately did let my emotions get the better of me. I figured "oh, well you had a gain today, and you have the points, what difference is it going to make?"
So, I'm heading to bed, and tomorrow will be a day full of good decisions. I wouldn't be normal if I didn't face the same setbacks as everyone else. You just gotta keep putting one foot in front of the other, at a slow & steady pace, cuz this journey is going to be one that lasts the rest of my life.
