Up 1.6 Pounds

As expected, my time spent on the scale this morning was a little rough.

Weight gain this week: +1.6 pounds
Current weight: 211.2 pounds
TOTAL weight loss: 24.6 pounds 

Only one of the absolutely terrifying things that I thought might happen this week actually happened – I’m now under 25 pounds lost.  This sucks.  But it certainly isn’t the end of the world.

I’ve decided to make a list of things that I’m going to do this week to get back on track.

  1. Track everything.  About halfway through the day on Wednesday this week, I just stopped tracking my food.  I have seen this in the past.  IT IS A BIG NO-NO, LIZ, YOU KNOW BETTER THAN THAT.
  2. Drink more water.  Due to stress at work, I have been drinking a LOT of coffee, and not so much water.  I need to fill that giant cup at my desk at least twice a day.
  3. PLAN my workouts.  I only worked out twice this week, and that was not because I didn’t have the time.  It was because I didn’t plan for it (and was seriously lacking energy).
  4. And most importantly: get more sleep.  So much of my bad decisions and lack of planning came from a serious lack of sleep.  I was cranky and ridiculously prone to tears (we’re talking weepy) and it was all due to the fact that I wasn’t sleeping well or nearly long enough.

These are the things I MUST change, and I will most likely let you know exactly how I’m doing as the week progresses.  Blergh.

With that, I’ll leave you with a photo:

I’m not the biggest fan of Starbucks, but it’s really close to work and I love their Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte.  Plus, they have really cute cups this time of year.  Sending love to you all!!

  1. i’m up too this week. its frustrating. but don’t give up. you’ve done great so far! you should get my sister to buy the zumba wii game like she keeps saying she’s going to and do it together! or try it at a gym if you can ? i don’t know if you have a gym membership. its really fun! you’re kind of awesome. and i’m really proud you make me keep going!

  2. I’m still proud of you. It’s hard to say the things you did, or admit to weakness. We all face this.
    Don’t beat yourself up, just come back to your resolve. You will. I know that.
