Determined to “get back on track”, I got back in the groove of things (my normal eating, exersizing) on Monday. I decided I was going to S-K-I-P my weigh in this week. After all, I don’t want to get myself depressed, and if I had a bad weigh in, it would depress me.
BUT, I was worried about what damage had been done? How much did I put on? What if I go above 300 pounds at my Weigh In? My mind has quite a skill when it comes to imagination. I started thinking I put on 13 pounds? 8 pounds? -- dread.
I decided to take away the power I was giving my imagination, so, I bit the bullet and went to weigh in.
To my shock and delight, I actually LOST weight: 2.4 lbs!!!
Perhaps last week I was holding onto a lot of fluids, so even though I actually gained, the water weight masked it?
Maybe the hard exercise and on-point eating I did Monday & Tuesday was the key? (doubt it)
Maybe that I had drank about a gallon of tea and 4 gallons(ish) of water had done it?
I felt so thankful, and knew, even before I had weighed in, that I want to keep losing weight and keeping that scale down (NOT UP). Seeing the loss really gave me a boost and Moh-Tee-Vay-shun Baby!
Do you ever get pleasantly surprised at your weigh in?
