Weekly weigh-in: November 12

Oof. It's so much easier to gain than to lose.  I expected a gain today, and I got it, much more than I thought. Yesterday was not a great food day, and as I said, I haven't been tracking very well this week.  Still, there is no way that all of that is real weight -- some is definitely water. There's nothing to do but move forward and hope that it will be off next week if I follow my plan.

I definitely had an "I don't care" week, which makes no sense since I do care. I felt very disappointed on Tuesday when so many of the things I tried on didn't look good on me, bravado post aside.

Successes: I really like doing two Spin workouts in the middle of the week. It feels great. I also got myself to swim yesterday when I was very tempted to skip.

Opportunities for improvement: I need to be more consistent with tracking, because I let the food slide too much when I stop recording it.  I don't know how I can keep telling myself it's too much trouble when it obviously works.  I also need to find my positive attitude, which went missing somewhere.  I have to expect this process will have ups and downs, and not take the bad days so personally.

  1. When I shop at AT, most of the clothes don't look good on me either. If that makes you feel any better.

    If you found a couple things to tide you over while you lose, then that sounds like a very successful trip over all.

    What you describe sounds like an ego thing in the swim lane. My husband is many times faster than I am, we share a lane, he just swims around me. He doesn't care. If she says she doesn't care either, then it might be a learning point for you. We all start from where we are. We all keep our eyes on our own mat. It is part of the process (in my opinion).
