What a Week

I am so thankful that it is Friday!!

It has been such a long and busy week in our household. Monday I picked up Jon from the airport on Monday night and we did not make it home until 2am! I think that this event really threw off my entire week. I do not function well when I am tired and sleep deprived!

As a result, it has been a hard Weight Watchers week. I have been overeating. I eat to try and keep myself awake. Jon has been busy working and I have been home alone eating, because I am lonely. Do you hear a theme? I've been eating...a lot! I had a small victory yesterday when I resisted cupcakes at a work barbeque! Hey it’s not much but I need to celebrate anything I can, no matter how small it might be.

On top of that, I was not able to weigh in this week. I normally weigh in on Tuesday evenings, however my meeting was cancelled this week. I have this really weird thing about how I only weigh in at Weight Watchers on Tuesday evenings. I made this rule, because early on in my weight loss journey I was weighing myself multiple times a day. I weighed myself so much that I was stressed out, because my body would fluctuate throughout the week. So, I decided to stop stressing myself out and only weigh in once a week.

I know that I should weigh myself at home, but there is just one problem my scale is broken and the battery does not work! Figures!

I do not mean to complain, but I want to be honest with you about where I am at in my healthy eating journey. Just because I have made it to my goal weight does not mean that all of this is easy for me. It is extremely challenging at times.

So, what I am going to do in response to my bad week? Well, I am not going to quit. I am not going to give up and throw in the towel

I am going to start by remembering how far I have come. I want to let that motivate me to keep going. I am going to pray that God helps me get back on track and stay there. This morning I wore a pair of my tighter jeans, so that I could feel if my stomach is growing. I went walking on Wednesday evening in the 100 degree heat. I am tracking what I eat and will continue to try to stay on track! It is going to be challenging with summer barbeques and parties happening this weekend, but I am going to TRY.

Thanks for listening and letting me be honest about where I am at this morning!

If you are struggling, you are not alone! Make a plan to get yourself right back on track as soon as possible.

Just for fun I thought that I would share this comic with you. I received it earlier this week and it made me laugh out loud at work! It describes exactly how I feel here in Texas.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Way to go refusing to give up. I feel that way, too, even though I haven't come as far as you have.
And resisting that cupcake is a HUGE deal. So, congratulations!

You are right - there is no giving up and going back. This is real life. Things are going to happen. You are doing awesome and are such an inspiration to me!!

The later I stay up the more I want to eat. If I'm not out and about I'm constantly in the fridge or pantry. I've been trying to pick fruit or veggies when I do, but sometimes I jsut want something packed full of chocolate and carbs. :o.

Hang in there! You are doing a great job!
