What can I expect really, I've been a little crazy the 2 weeks prior having a gain of 4.2 then a loss of 4.4. I'm convinced my body is a little confused with some of the changes. Also, I admit that the lent pizza on Friday night probably did nothing to help a weight loss for the week. Pizza is apparently a food I cannot be trusted with. I'm always looking for ways to lighten up pizza, anyone have any diet friendly pizza options they can share?
Ok, well let's get to it:
This week's stats:
This week's loss = -.4 lb
Total loss= - 35 lb
Normally, I'd be pretty bummed about such a small loss, even though I'm a bit of a hypocrite because I'm the first person to tell everyone else that a loss is a loss. . . and yes that is true, losing is better than gaining. At least the scale is going in the correct direction. But, let's face it, we all get a little disappointed with the small losses.
After a week of tracking and being good, the majority of the time :), I think it is natural to get a little down with these smaller losses. However, I'm ok with it. Honestly, I had a huge gain and then a huge loss and I am in an adjustment period. I'm in the process of trying new things and regardless of the amount of weight lost I am feeling better about myself. I feel a little healthier.
Seriously, on Thursday I did a total of 74 push-ups (girly ones, but still) total during my workout. Sure they were done in increments, but 3 weeks ago I could do like 6 and with totally bad form. Little victories, I'm taking them! I've now lost a total of 35 pounds and that is pretty awesome!
Now I just need to get my goal for February back on track!
