Weekly Weigh-in

Well, I didn't make my goal of 1.8 this week. I actually only lost .2. I will admit I was VERY upset with myself when I got off the scale. This is the first time in this journey that I have felt failure. Even the week that I gained a pound wasn't this bad. Reflecting back on the week, I am sure the reason I am so upset is because I did everything right. As I said last week, I had gotten sloppy on journaling and lackadaisical on exercise. This week, I did everything I know to do and lost less weight than last week!

I am done with my pity party. Most people in my meeting gained weight, they were even afraid to look at their weight diary. I did have a loss. A new week has begun and a good attitude will take me a long way!

Loss this week: -0.2
Total weight loss: -48.4

I know how disappointing it can be to see a minor loss, but I still see it as a huge victory in that it's not a gain. Thanksgiving is more than just a meal, it's tons of social eating over four days or more. Most people gain, I am glad that you lost!! Pat yourself on the back, next week I hope you really kick butt.

I had the .2 loss this week too. You didn't gain, so that is always a positive to me. I know the little losses are hard, but you are doing so well!!! :)

Failure is when we stop trying. You did everything right, that is being successful don't go by your feelings go by the truth:)

A loss is a loss! Take it and be proud that you didn't go in the other direction. I'm with you though...I only lost .4 and I was sort of beating myself up too...but I'm over that. Congrats and get right back up and keep going!

I think having a little loss over the holiday is a definite success. Don't be too hard on yourself. Sending hugs.

Your efforts may show two-fold next week if you keep up the good work. Congrats on the .2 even though it wasn't what you were hoping for.
