It is clear that while I had a big gain last week that my body doesn’t really like it. I did drop quite a bit of weight this week despite a few not-so-great moments. Still I stuck with it, and I am sure an increased water intake helped flush some of the salt and bloat that I had last week.
78.4 lbs Lost to Date
I love seeing that decrease however I am hesitant to toot my own horn too much. Firstly, because I know that I had moments this week that could have deteriorated to a giant eating-fest rather quickly. On the one hand, they didn’t, or they were limited, but on the other there were several moments of feeling less than stable with my eating. Secondly, I did not succeed in tracking everything. I missed two days entirely – one planned (Little Goat’s party day) and one unplanned (yesterday) but I also gave up tracking on Monday after things started going array.
Monday I found out that I might need eye surgery to correct my near constant double vision (caused by strabismus for those in the know). While I am hopeful that I can get my eyes fixed so my brain doesn’t constantly have to try to compensate, it is a little scary too. And I am afraid I ate my anxiety.
But I also don’t want to diminish the fact that I didn’t let myself go crazy and that even on the days I didn’t track I made “better” choices. Maybe not great choices, but better.
I am learning as I go along on this. I am grateful for the dietbet right now, since it is even more motivation to keep on track. I really want to get back to 80lbs and then to start to see some new numbers on the scale. I also really want it to be spring so I can run outside again.
That’s all I’ve got today. Just keep swimming and all that jazz!
