Moving On

Friday was my weigh in day.  I am up for the first time since I began WW.  Up almost 6 pounds.

 I know what happened.  I was off with my tracking, so I know I went over my points some days.  Well, that and the fact that I have been "flying to close to the sun" with some yummy Christmas chocolates and that darn Holiday Creamer.   I just love how my body relates to food.  I'm not going to let this get to me.  After my meeting, I so badly wanted to wallow in my gain, feel bad for myself, and head on over to Taco Bell and get something cheesy and oh so bad for me, but I stopped.  I told myself, "you're up 5 plus pounds....you did it, so own it, and move on."   So, I am.  I'm owning it by tell you all about it.   Putting it out there gives me the strength I need to get back on track instead of turning to the self sabotage actions that I usually turn to.  Our weight loss journeys are full of ups and downs.  It's the downs that we don't like to talk about. I tend to sweep them under the rug, feel sorry for myself, only to indulge over and over again.  It's when I talk about them that I can really move on from them.  Move on and move forward.  I need to stop, regroup, and not continue to make the same mistakes.  My January 2nd weight goal is in my sights.  That is enough for me to own it, make changes and just move on.

  1. Live and learn....that's what the 'ups' are....either a moment where we lived or a moment where we needed to learn.....most commonly a combination!

  2. I'm proud of you. It's so easy to just slip back into old habits the moment we stumble. The good news is you're still down over 11 pounds! That's awesome!

  3. I feel for you Lori!!! I love the way you ended your post. I gained weight on my vacation & it's been forever (3 weeks to be exact) that I kill it by some extra food.

    It's amazing that its the first time ever you gained this weight, speaks volumes about the determination you have!

    Take care :)

  4. I'm proud of you for owning that weigh in! You are doing so great :) Keep that goal in mind!

  5. I have gained some weight recently as well. You're right, we need to own the gain and move on and do better!
