What’s gone up, you ask? My weight.
Last week’s weight: 169.
This week’s weight: 170.2
My scale is clearly broken, right? Right???
Or maybe it is the fact that though I did in fact manage to log my food 5 of 7 days last week, I didn’t exactly make the greatest nutritional choices. Honestly, if you looked at my food choices over the past few months, “healthy” would not be one of the words you’d use to describe them. I’ve allowed myself to give little thought to eating healthy. How do I expect to maintain my weight if I can’t eat healthy foods?
What’s truly pitiful is that on Friday, I weighed 167.6, which means I gained 2.6 pounds over the weekend! I have this tendency to see a new low on the scale and then just go nuts with my food intake. How illogical is that?! In addition, the weekends are always a struggle for me to stay focused on eating healthy, but as Jen says, you don’t get to take the weekends off on your healthiness journey. I have to pull it together if I’m going to make it to my goal, and I’m not sure what the solution is. Obviously, I need to stop eating with abandon, but it seems like I have some sort of mental roadblock I can’t get past.
If anyone has any thoughts, please share them!
