Weigh-in March 11: Still sick

I'm up one pound, and I still have a cold. Those two things may be connected. I also went to my parents' house.  No one was there (I had forgotten they were going to be out of town) and I picked at candy while I was waiting. And this week has been a bad one for exercise, since I was out of town and then sick.

This has been the worst winter for colds, and it isn't just me.  Everyone around me seems to be sick.  My cough seems to be settling down but my chest feels very congested this morning, heavy and tight.

I'm excited about the DietBet contest I entered.  Assuming I am feeling better, I think it could give me an extra boost.  I have to weigh-in on Saturday, which requires some verification photos. I am going to have a standard weigh-in outfit that I am going to keep near the scale so that the clothes are a constant.

Mostly, though, I'm still feeling patient with myself and this process. I have a review of a book on Self-Compassion coming up, and the ideas really have been helpful to me. I'm not going to be able to win everyone's love and approval no matter how much weight I lose, but I can be compassionate with myself during the process.

  1. Hope you feel better soon Jen! This sentence is so fab: "Mostly, though, I'm still feeling patient with myself and this process."

    Good on you :)
