Official Thursday Weigh-In

I ain't even gonna lie.

I've been avoiding y'all for the past couple of hours.

You're not going to believe it - I had another gain.

I thought that last week was "water weight" from "my period" and it would "be gone this week."

Nope.

It stayed. And brought over three of its friends.

I feel like I've lost focus the past couple of weeks. Really. And I feel awful, because y'all have been so encouraging.

And everyone tells me how great I look, but at this point, I know I'm doing something not right because I've gained four (!) pounds in the past two weeks.

Pray for me, girls. I've got a lot going on - with my parents, with my church, with my job.

Maybe one day I'll be at liberty to share some of what's happening around here. Suffice it to say, I've been trying to hold everything else together and neglecting my health. Eating too much junk. Not exercising enough.

I've got to get past this - both the challenges in my life as a whole, and this downhill slide in my weight loss.

Sorry for the Debbie Downer post this week!

Don't feel so bad about the last four pounds gained. My goodness, girl, you have lost SEVENTY pounds! I can't even seem to lose the first 5 right about now. I keep saying to myself, "today is the day to start" and then things come up and the willpower vanishes. But you are an inspiration. Don't get down on yourself. You know what you need to do. Now make sure you take a walk today or get some kind of exercise. You can do it!

Aww, {{{hugs}}} Melissa! Don't worry about the weight gain.. there will be many good weigh-ins ahead.
Hope things start going better for you, in regards to everything going on. I've found that when things start going really bad, then they start to turn around and go good again - like a cycle. So things will get better, I'm sure.

Thanks! And this morning, I woke up 45 minutes earlier than I usually do, and figured I wasn't getting back to sleep before my alarm went off, so I got up and did a mile on my Gazelle!

And then this week we have a salesman who comes in twice a year to do our "church page" ads, and he always brings doughnuts on his last day. What did he do this morning? Brought in the doughnuts! He tried to get me to eat one (he knows how much weight I've lost, he's been coming in for years) and said "One will be fine." Well, maybe if I hadn't gained so much this week it would, but it isn't. I turned him down!

Even though I may not have strayed much from my POINTS these past couple of weeks, I have been spending too many of them on junk. I've got to get back to putting "good stuff" in my body, and that starts today.

You will be fine. 4#, just little bump in the road, look how far you have come! :)

YOU should look at what you HAVE accomplished! SEVENTY pounds! I am in awe! I need to do that and am just now beginning the journey. I doubt I will be as great about as you have been. You are an inspiration!
Do not be down...you exercised today!
See? Good for you!

And no one with such a treasure of a daughter should ever be down on herself! You are amazing!

Hugs,
Sue

Aww, cheer up friend! Sometimes we just have off weeks, but at least you can see where you might be making some bad choices. It is hard to take care of yourself when you have a lot of other things trying to get your attention. Of course you'll have prayers and support! :)
