After adamantly sticking to my plan these past few days and having that nearly five pound mid-week gain in the back of my head this whole time, I am excited to report that I have lost a grand total of 0.2 pounds from last week! It may be a teeny, tiny loss, but I am so hugely thankful that I managed to pull it off! I really was expecting to see a gain today and was prepared to just keep working at getting off whatever else remained, but continuing my downward trend (no matter how minuscule) makes me very happy!
This is one of those weeks where I can say that I earned every ounce – both when the number went up and as it slowly came back down. I am really proud that I didn’t just ditch all of my hard work as I probably would have in the past, and even more pleased that I finally seem to be moving past the all or nothing attitude that was a self-sabotaging mechanism of prior weight loss efforts.
The loss I am reporting today may be barely worth registering compared to my other weigh-ins, but it represents a lot more to me than most of the bigger numbers I have seen during this journey. It’s true what they say. The best things really do come in small packages!
