Well folks, my fears were not unfounded last night. I weighed in and lost .3 lbs. Yes that is POINT 3 not a regular 3.
I spent some time allowing myself to be disappointed (but not despairing) and debating whether this loss was even worth blogging about. The conclusion I came to is this.
Hell Yes it is worth blogging about!
My body may not be doing what I want it to. I cannot control that. But I did the work and regardless of what the scale says I am proud of that. I don’t want the scale to rule my life and have my moods dictated by what it says or not. Yet, at the same time, I will not deny the disappointment either.
So I move on.
In the moving on and with the assertiveness of Angela, I realized a few things.
1. I have NOT been drinking enough water. Not even close.
2. While I have been tracking my calories mentally and always knew I was not going over, after reviewing just one day of eating, (eating that was typical of my last 2 weeks) I am likely falling too far under calories.
So, it is clear to me that unless I actually write it down I do not eat enough for my body. Especially given how many calories I was burning last week with all my walking!
So, I am back to actually writing it down and being hyper diligent again about my tracking of my food.
Thanks Ang for taking control…you did to me today, exactly what I would have done to you or anyone else! Hmmm…you’re not a control freak like me too, are you??????
