So tonight i weighed in at Weight Watchers....
Well it was not too good. I gained 1.4lbs! I was definitely devastated. It is funny because the woman that weighs us in always looks down and whispers "you're up a little" when you gain any weight. So when I saw her head go down my own head went down. It is so frustrating to know you did everything right and still did not get the results you were hoping for.
Now the old me would have probably sat with a half gallon of ice cream and got depressed. I admit I really wanted to just shut myself in and be depressed alone. But then I started thinking OK well a minor set back right? It is only 1.4 pounds. I have still lost 46.6 pounds. If you look at it as a bigger picture I lost 4.6 pounds last week so hopefully this gain was muscle.
I know I did well with my eating within my points. I downloaded this new application for my Droid phone which is a virtual Weight Watchers journal. This allowed me to successfully track everyday. I worked out 5 out of the 7 days too. It was a crazy week with me going back to work, my dad being in the hospital, and the baby teething so I have gotten a lot less sleep. I am playing back the week in my mind to try and see where the problems were.
So now I am posting as I always do my weigh in and this will be the last time I dwell on it! You cannot focus on only numbers when playing the weight loss game. And I think this is very true. I have had so many non scale victories lately and I am focusing on those. My body is in the best shape it has been since I was in high school! My clothes do not fit even size 12s are loose on me now. I can finally fit into a size 38 bra so I can shop back at Victoria Secret! I am most excited about this one lol
Again I know I have to keep reminding myself that no journey is perfect. There WILL ALWAYS be some bumps in the road! But it is important to brace yourself for the bumps and rise above them. Tomorrow is a new day and my time to succeed is right now!
(by the way sorry I started typing this last night and then fell asleep at the computer! I was so exhausted so I finished it this morning :)
What do you do when you experience a small set back? How do you overcome it?
