Weigh-in Wednesday

Another Wednesday has arrived and you all know what that means. We’re at Weigh-in Wednesday (#3 if you’re keeping count) of the Sisterhood’s Looking Fine for Valentine’s Challenge. Isn’t that just fun to say? Let‘s, everybody say it together-oh, come on, you know you want to! Better yet, if you haven’t yet, click on over and check the Sisterhood out!

Anyway, I have no clue how this weigh-in is going to go. Not really feeling at my skinniest this morning. And I totally blew it on Saturday. I did so good at dinner with friends. Before dinner, I checked out the restaurant’s menu on The Daily Plate’s website and picked out a few choices. I was prepared! And then, there was a suggestion. “Hey! Wanna go dancing?” With that, my calories were blown. And I felt terrible about it. But then the next day, I thought, what’s done is done. Let’s move on and focus one day at a time. Now, I’m just going to cross my fingers that the dancing I helped some.

Last week’s weight: 151.2
This week’s weight: 151.2

No loss, no gain. Ok, here are my thoughts on it. If there’s one thing that I have learned through all of this it’s that it isn’t reasonable to expect myself to completely give up certain things. If I try to give up those things, then I will most certainly fail at this. There are going to be times when I am going to completely blow it for the day. But I now know that the good days far outweigh the bad days. I have the strength inside me to say, “April, you blew it. Now what are you going to do about it?” I’m going to start over, eat right, work out, and just take it day by day. I have some real challenges the next couple of weeks and I can’t be certain that I won’t blow it all of those times. In fact, I know of a few times that I know I'm going to blow it. But I can promise myself that I will try to be mindful. And that’s just what I’m going to do. That's all any of us can do! :o)

At least you didn't gain, right? I think you've got a great attitude about your weight loss journey, and even though you didn't lose anything this week, you're doing a great job. Keep up the great work!

That's a VERY healthy approach to real life!! I need to adopt this attitude myself. Thanks for the inspiration this morning!!

Kari said...

Way to be positive! Remember slow and steady wins the race!

I think that is just fine. You had a great time right? You stayed the same and this week ahead you will do great!

Mommy Mo said...

You didn't gain- you maintained! And on the weeks that you know you blew it, then maintaining is just fine. At least you got to go dancing- how fun!

Way to go, April! Maintaining is great! Especially when you know you didn't have your best week.

I have the same thoughts as you do on weight loss. It has to be real. You have to realize that this is the way you're going to live the rest of your life, so it has to be doable and smart and realistic.

Good luck this week!! I'm pulling for you!

congrats on maintaining. You definitely have your head in the right place to be successful at this challenge. Great job!

Mary said...

I agree that you can't give up everything, and isn't it nice that even though you did indulge a bit, you didn't gain? Good for you!

Susanne said...

"Take it day by day"...
THAT'S the ticket!! You can do it. You're gonna rock next week!

Deprivation only leads to completely falling off the wagon. I'm on board with everyone else in saying that you did good by not gaining when you know you didn't do as well as you originally wanted to. And dancing is exercise, right? That totally counts!

Great attitude & keep up the great work!! Isn't it funny that so many of us would Love to weigh what you weigh?! The grass is always greener....

Vickie said...

You are right, you can't give up everything. This weekend I have another birthday party to go to. So right now I am thinking I am not going to eat the cake and ice cream. But I probably will.

You have a good attitude, you are still doing a good job.

I'm a walking contradiction. While I love to draw, paint and read, I also love all things gadgets, science and even science fiction (I know). My animals (two dogs and two birds) are my heart, and if I could figure out how to legally own a giraffe, I would. That all said, I have my BS in Mathematics. :o)
