Weekly Weigh-In: Finding My Center
Okay, I didn't get my weigh-in posted yesterday because it was such a busy weekend that I didn't get time to post it. Now, here I am at midnight (yes, I schedule my posts) with schoolwork still to check and a weigh-in not posted, so this may be short and sweet.
I gained. *sigh* I guess last week was a fluke, because I don't think I did so poorly on counting calories in/calories out to wind up with a gain. I gained 1.4 pounds, my second biggest gain since I began my weight loss journey. Am I frustrated? A little. Discouraged? Not too bad. Giving up? No way!
I have come too far to give up. I know I can do this, it's just a matter of getting my workout schedule going again. With the busyness of starting a new school year and outside activities, it's hard to fit everything in, especially when I have determined that I'm not going to let over-commitment cause the stress and burnout it did last year.
Don't get me wrong; a little bit of stress and burnout was totally worth the almost 64 pounds that I've lost. I'm just at a point where I'm not feeling desperate about it like I was last year. I'm at a comfortable place where I feel good about what I've lost, so I'm not going at it with a crazed desperation. I also know that I'm not finished, though, so I'm not quitting. I'm just trying to find my new center of balance -- a balance somewhere between crazy desperation and complacency.
How did you do this week?
