Weight Loss Results Week #16

Not too much to report here this week, I weighed in at 182.  Really, I am quite content with where I am this week given the developments in my life.  I did give into what I labeled as “Carb Fest 2013” on Sunday…and really…I felt so gross afterwards and my body did not like the crap I put into it. Overall it wasn’t a huge quantity of food thankfully.  I felt like my body was fighting me back for what I did to it. Like “Hey lady what’s the deal? We had a good thing going on down here and now you decided to pull this %#@! on us?  Well let’s see how you like this gas pain here and here! Bwahahahaha!!!!” Regardless of the stress, even on “Carb Fest 2013” day I was not as bad as I would have been prior to living healthier.  I have only allowed my one day of stupid eating and made myself realize why I was eating and what I was eating and making myself be more cognizant in my food choices.  Having the strength to push back on those old crutches of handling stress has been good.

Working out has been a little more of struggle but I am getting better each day.  I got a great workout in at my son’s karate class yesterday. His instructor allows the parents to walk/run when the kids are and to follow along with their conditioning exercises.  I was really proud that I did at least 50 push ups and sits up each…plus other exercises.  I even out did my hubby on some things. Now THAT felt great!

So, I am not beating myself up for no weight loss this week because in the perspective of everything one pound gained is not a tragedy…I’m cutting myself some slack because of what happened last week and allowing myself some time to work through those feelings but not resorting to food as a coping mechanism.  Using food that way has NOT helped me in any way and really made things worse in the past.  I am proud I did as well as I did because my initial reaction was to eat and eat and eat mindlessly.  I cleaned my house instead. 🙂

This pretty much sums up how I am on an “eating day”….very proud of myself that I recognized it and stopped myself from going full force!

  1. Great response to current family stressors. Kudos on working out and doing SO well. Especially all those push ups and sit ups! Recognizing you are falling into an undesirable pattern, even if it is just one event, is HUGE! Good for you for stopping it! 🙂

  2. That is great! Success on the scale is only one form of success. Recognizing and changing your behaviour during a difficult time is at least as valuable as a few lost pounds. I would call it a huge NSV (non-scale victory) and be proud!

  3. Just caught up on the last couple weeks of your blog and I’m so sorry to hear about your husband’s job loss. I will be keeping you and your family in my thoughts and hope the ship gets righted soon.

    Even though you saw a tiny gain on the scale this week it shows tremendous progress. The job news did not send you into a total tailspin and you were able to recognize that the old patterns weren’t working for you and got back on track. Your strength — in body, mind, and spirit — has grown tremendously through all the work you’ve done in the past few months. As other bloggers have mentioned, keep your eye on the prize and keep working towards your goal of starting ballet classes again. Because this IS just a hiccup… all your work will not go to waste and I cannot wait to read about your first class back. It WILL happen!
