This week I learned a lesson. What I’m doing is not to lose weight. It’s to get healthy. I need to do what I need to do, and eventually the results will come. Weeks when I do well, I expect to lose weight. Weeks when I don’t do as well, I don’t expect as much of a loss. My body and my expectations aren’t always on the same page though. That’s why it’s so important to focus on the long term goal of being healthy vs. the immediate result of losing weight.
Last weekend, we were out of town. We didn’t eat like we normally do. I also had *that* week of the month this week. I expected it to be a holding pattern type of week.
Previous loss: 5.8 lbs
This week’s loss: 2.4 lbs
Total loss: 8.2 lbs
This week, I’ll be keeping up on the water and fruit and vegetable intake.
