I have to make a correction to my post about my weight-loss last week. I guess I really shouldn't post when I am sick with a high fever because apparently that leaves me with an inability to do math. I had not lost 13 pounds total last week. It should have been only 12.5 pounds total lost. I am not sure why 13 was stuck in my head last week, but it was. I know it is only a little different, but I want to be honest so I had to make the correction.
Now on to this week. This week I took giant steps backward and the scale reflected that. I didn't get my water in, I didn't pay enough attention to what I was eating, and I gave in to my sweet tooth. I paid for it on the scale and I am sad to report that I gained three pounds this week. Trust me it was a low point for me this morning when I stepped on the scale. I am not going to wallow in the pity though. I am going to get right back up, accept the blame for sabotaging myself, and get right back on track. I know that I didn't do what I was supposed to and I deserved to see a gain on the scale. I know that I am not the kind of person that can slack when I am trying to accomplish something otherwise I have major setbacks, but I tried to do just that this past week. I slipped a little with my goals and then I decided I could just relax for a day or two, but that kind of thinking backfired. I have to be diligent with my choices, my workouts, and my food otherwise I will not lose the weight. I know that and this will I will focus on being diligent instead of being relaxed. My total weigh loss this week is only nine and a half pounds because I sabotaged myself. Next week it will be better.
