Weekly Weight: 222.2 lbs

I am not surprised that my scale went up this week. When I am stressed even if I don’t eat, I sort of gain weight. It is like my body pulls moisture from the air and uses it to lock in everything. My eating also wasn’t the best and with heat followed by lots of rain storms my workout weren’t the best either. so it was pretty much the perfect storm.

But here is the good thing about a weight loss journey. No matter how many times you get knocked back, you only really fail if you stop trying. the exercise I did get was good for me. The fact that even though I did eat some not so great foods, I still tried to reign in my portions size meant that it was a small weight gain rather than a large one.

Would I have liked it not to have happened? Sure, but I understand why it did and I am not going to let it worry me too much. While I am working out and losing weight to better my life and keep me healthy for the rest of it, working out and weight loss are not my life.

they are a means to an end not an end in and of themselves.

I think it is easy to lose track of that.

I also think it is very important that it be remembered.

The Stats:

Starting weight: 246.0 lbs

Last Week’s Weight: 219.0 lbs

This weeks Weight: 222.2 lbs

Change this week: +3.2 lbs

Lost this far: 23.8 lbs

And so I was knocked back this week by stress and a need to just breathe. Today, I’ll go on a walk, make my menu plan for next week and get back on track working to make next week’s numbers better. I know this and I am okay with it.
