I had a great day, but there is a weigh-in that I know will be beyond horrible tomorrow. I am not looking forward to it. So much so is that the case, in fact, that I am going to sign off from here right now just so that I don’t have to think about it. Yup. It’s going to be that bad…

  1. Ohh. I hope it's not as bad as you think. Deb

  2. Eh.. we all have those gotcha weeks. Just own it. You know what to do to bounce back!!


  3. This is the first time I've ever posted a comment on a blog. Your story inspired me. I just weighed myself,213 lbs. I'm 5' 2 1/2". It's the most I've ever weighed in my life. Thank you for sharing your journey.

  4. Although I would like to believe my weight appeared overnight , it was actually a pound here & there. Stay vigilant , don't get complacent. Instead, create a plan of action so that next week will be better. You continue to inspire !

  5. Seriously I am not even close to my goal weight, which is 180! Hang in there and take one day at a time.

  6. Just face it and move forward. Unfortunately, this battle is not done when we get to maintainence. It's a balancing act that is quite difficult. One that I didn't master well at all...

  7. Hon, we all have weeks like that. I had one last week. But I told myself I had to accept those kind of weeks and vow to do even better the following week. Tomorrow is my weigh in too and I am really hoping it will show a loss instead of a gain, like last week did for me. You can do it too! Just look at how far you've come! I have confidence in you! :)

  8. Don't be upset with me. But I think some days you eating way too much. You need to fool your body with a lot less food once in a gets complacent with this weight loss thing. You have inspired me. Do you think you eat too many sweet things? Apple fritter? Lemon Bars? Cheeseburger? Fries? Those are foods one eats once in a while. I hate reading how scared you are going to be on weigh day. You are scared and you know why. Good Luck

  9. I am inspired by your weight loss journey as well. I have 4 children and every time, after the pregnancy, I have had to lose 40-50 pounds. I've also lost and regained those 40-50 pounds 2 or 3 times since those pregnancies. I'm now in the process of losing once again. So far I've lost 25 pounds out of the 50 needed. This time I decided to go to 1200 calories a day during the week and give myself a break on Saturday and Sunday (not going crazy with food, but not counting calories or worrying too much). This has worked for me- I've lost about 2 pounds a week on this plan. The reason I'm telling you all of this is to let you know that there is a way to stay with your own program and still give yourself needed breaks. I am hopeful that after this weight loss I will calculate (using calorie calculator on the internet) how many calories I need to maintain my new weight (goal weight) and count those during the week until I have a good "feel" for what I can eat. Then I will still give myself the weekends "off". Once a week I will go back to 1200 cals to offset the weekend. I don't mean to be preachy, I just know how easy it is to gain it all back, since I have done it about 7 times. I am determined to have this be the last time. I hope you won't have to go through the disappointment and self-betrayal that I have felt these many times. It comes back so easily. Hang in there!
