You're reading my title and thinking I'm taking a break from shrinking, aren't you? Nope. Keep reading. After the doctor told me not to exercise until Sunday, I knew that I had a real challenge on my hands. Not only did I feel like complete crap, but I had to really try to cut my calories because I couldn't work out, and I wanted to still lose weight. My body just wasn't having it. I have such a schedule now with my food that my body gets seriously angry if I don't eat exactly what it's used to. So, that said, I did the best I could, but I probably could have done better.
Last week's weight: 145.0
This week's weight: 145.8
I'm not surprised by this tiny gain. Like I said, it was hard for me to cut my calories in order to make up for me not working out. Now, I could be hard on myself and kick myself in the ass for not eating better, but I'm not. I've decided to give myself a break. I was sick and didn't feel well, so a tiny gain isn't too bad when I look at the big picture. I just have to refocus now that I'm better.
I guess my point of all of this is to say, if you're having a rough time or for whatever reason you have a challenge that a big weight loss may not be possible, just give yourself a break. You're trying and that's important. And as long as you don't completely fall off the wagon, and you just take things day by day, the weight will come off. I have the hardest time not being hard on myself, but this week, I'm not. And that in itself is a big accomplishment for me! So, if I can give myself a break, then you can too! So, if you had a bad week, fine. Now, it's over, let's refocus and kick ass next week! What do ya say??
