Weight In Day is tomorrow..

Thursday, July 16, 2015

Tomorrow makes 1 week since I've been back on spark and logging my food. It also officially marks the day of my weigh in. I've been keeping track of my numbers on and off during this week, and I have to say that I am pretty nervous.

I've never been one to every put up big numbers on the weight loss front. Not unless I was doing something like HGC, which I in no way, ever recommend. Even when I am busting my tail, normally the weight comes off slow.

That's ok.

There is apart of me that wants that instant gratification. That little Veruca Salt that all of us deal with from time to time, that wants it NOW. I want to see the best results from the hard work I've done this week, even though I know, that some of those results are not seen by numbers. Sometimes, those results are seen by things like.. buttoning one's pants with ease. Or having more stamina at an activity previously struggled at. I know this. It's just hard to push that part back sometimes.

And I also know that losing weight quickly isn't always a good thing. A lot of time if we are able to do it once, we take forgranted that we'll always be able to do it. For example.. Has anyone else ever said this to themselves?

'Oh, what? That five pounds. Oh that's fine. I'll just diet next week or two and it will be gone!"

I've done that. I can tell you, that the week or two that I project its going to take sometimes takes 2-4 weeks instead.

Right now, I am looking at how much I've back slid.. and I just want to get back to where I was as quickly as possible. I didn't get here overnight and I can't make it go away over night. I can't hide this part of my life and pretend that it never existed. I have to fight my way through it and keep going. Tomorrow is when I get a realistic look at how long it's going to take me to get back there and just how much of a fight that I have ahead.

I have to say that I am more than a little nervous.

    One of the golden rules that I violated last time was keeping my bigger clothes in rotation!

    It's one of those things. Reach for the bigger pants, bigger pants.. laundry day happens, now all that is left are the smaller pants.. and now the smaller pants don't fit!

    Thank you for your comment. You're right. We can do this!

    One of the things I'm learning is that, while it's ok to have a slip up, you really have to dedicate your life to being healthy and active. I'm getting rid of all my "fat clothes" and I'm going to make sure that I never get to the point where I have to go out and buy a pair of pants in a bigger size because nothing I have fits. We can do this!

    Keep thinking positive thoughts - you're doing GREAT!
