It’s been a couple of weeks since my last WeightWatcher’s update, and I decided that it was high time to make a post. The past few weeks were very busy with various commitments – that we’re all accustomed to – which kept me from weigh-in as well as tracking my food intake.
In keeping with the theme of the headline for this blog post, I was expecting to be up when I stepped on the scale this week, and I was.
Since my last weigh-in two weeks ago, I had gained +5.0 lbs – that’s the bad news. Indeed it’s a bummer but it was expected. The main drivers for this poor performance were a steep drop off in my daily exercise running regime; combined with long hours at work; some travel as well as lots of late-night eating. Additionally, I’m sure a portion of that gain was retained fluids rather than actually weight.
My total loss to date is – 28.5 lbs. and I don’t want to slide back into the old habits and patterns again. However, the good news is that I know the cause of the problem and how to work toward a solution. When I focus and commit to healthy habits – things move in the proper direction. When I lose that focus, my momentum stops and I stop losing weight.
While I’m not happy about posting this type of result, there is a cathartic effect that it has – so I’m grateful for that and for anyone who happens to read it. Thanks!
With that in mind, I hope there is less of me to write about next week.
