Had a bad ... day? week? Arghhh!

Well, it's officially happened. Not only did I not lose anything this past week I gained a pound. :( I started out the week well and even lost a pound early on and up until this morning I'd maintained my weight, but when I stepped on the scale this morning, it read 155. Dangit! I could give myself lots of excuses: I got my period on Sunday, so it's water weight; I've been stressed out over a work issue, so it's stress related; I did a lot of things in the evenings last week (which for the social life is good), so I didn't have as much time to work out; but what it comes down to is that I was too lax with myself. I noshed at a few jelly beans left over from my nieces' Easter baskets, I convinced myself that a night time snack was ok even though I wasn't that hungry, I let my social activities get in the way of the exercise I need to do, I didn't drink enough water. Am I being hard on myself? Sure! But, I need to be in order to keep myself going in the right direction. I want to get to my goal weight! I must get to my goal weight! I know I can get to my goal weight! I'm not saying I'm always going to be perfect b/c I know I won't be, but I can't let myself have so many excuses. Updating my ticker upward sucks big time!!

Jenn the main thing is you are getting back on track. We are human and the things you did are part of life, I don't see that you did anything majorly wrong. Look how far you have come. You know what you need to do and I know you can do it. Hey, your social life is important. One has to have a balance in their mental health and physical health, so don't cut back on your social life.

Just think -- one pound in the wrong direction and you're on the top of things! That obviously wasn't the case pre-op or none of us would have needed the surgery! You have come a long way...and you are sooooo close.
