Control

I had a bad week last week, gained a pound. But I lost 4 inches, so I have been trying really hard to just focus on that instead of the gained lb.

I tried to think about the causes and what was different last week. If I know what's broken I can try to fix it, right? The more I thought about what I did (or didn't do) over the course of the last week I came to the realization that I did a lot of shopping. Over and above grocery shopping we did a lot of clothes shopping and things like that. The more I shopped, the more out of control I felt. I ate within my points everyday, but I never ate all of my points for the day. I also didn't make great choices of the food I did eat. Instead of eating a lot of fruits and veggies like has become my new normal, instead, I ate pizza and Arby's. I only did yoga 2 times the whole week too. During the week, I could feel that I didn't feel right. I felt out of control, but couldn't put a finger on why I felt that way.

Saturday I went to my weigh in just hoping to not have a gain. When I saw that I gained 1 lb I was disappointed and just felt awful. When I did my measurements after the meeting I felt a little better knowing I did lose inches, but I still wasn't happy because of that one lb. Saturday I made great food choices, ate all of my points and felt so much better. I don't normally do yoga on the weekends, but yesterday I started my day with yoga and weighed myself, fortunately my scale and the WW scale are always the same. My scale showed a 2.6 lb loss! I have been making much better food choices, have done yoga twice this week and I feel fantastic.

I am focusing this week on making the best food choices each day and increasing my yoga routine from 30 minutes a day to 40 by the end of the week. I have already increased it to 35 minutes and added a few new poses that challenge me physically but I feel so great when its all said and done. I am back on track and as of today have lost 47 lbs since last summer. Go me!

  2. Thanks Jasmine! I agree, to be able to actually look back and find the correlation between my behavior and a weight issue is a big step for me.
