So the news isn't all bad.
I was down 1 pound from Thursday but up 4 from the previous week which puts me at 199. I was thrilled to see I wasn't over the 200 mark cause that might have put me over the edge!
This week I'm 100% back on track and focused. I'm pulling myself up by my bootstraps, figuring out why I was so consciously off plan and then determining to charge forward.
As mentioned yesterday, we all stumble, but I think the true test of character comes in how we handle the fall. I've done quite a bit of soul searching to figure out why I made the decisions I made and that search has been enlightening.
One thing that Glenda pointed out (and this is sooo true) is that even though I went off plan, I didn't do what I would have done in the past. Back in the day, I would have eaten a whole pizza, consumed a whole bag of chips, or had a whole six pack of beer (yikes!). So, this time, even though I indulged, I listened to my new healthy inner voice that told me I didn't need to binge on the foods and could instead enjoy them for what they were.
I'm taking comfort in the fact that my thinking is changing regardless of the minor stumble and celebrating the changes that are coming about in my life.
I'm back at it and looking forward to a big, awesome drop in numbers tomorrow!
