Weekly Weigh-In

It’s Weekly Weigh-In time again. I don’t know about you, but my weigh-ins lately have been like a roller coaster – up and down, up and down.

I lost last week; this week I gained a pound. Most weeks, I can come up with some possible culprits for my weight gain, but this week I’m stumped.

Aside from dinner Friday night, I felt like I made good choices this week and did better at tracking my food than I have lately.

I missed my workout Friday, but I went on a 14-mile bike ride Saturday, which is usually a rest day. I missed my run Sunday night, but I ran 11 miles on Monday. We did eat at a local pizza place Sunday night that has given me trouble before – probably the high sodium content – but I felt like I made good choices there, starting with a broth-based soup and salad.

It’s frustrating, this last ten pounds – the “maybe I should just be content with where I am” kind of frustrating. I mean, I never thought I would ever be in the low-130s again. I feel fit, healthy, and confident.

Then, I thought about gaining 10 pounds. I would notbe content in the 140’s. I wonder, though, if I thought I would be when I was there. I think I remember saying that a time or two.

So, maybe when I’m in the 120’s the thought of being 10 pounds heavier will seem unacceptable to me. I won’t know until I get there, so I’m not quitting. I’ll keep plugging away and making good choices – eventually, my body will have to respond, right?

Plus, I need to beat – or at least tie – Jill. {grin}

Do or do not. There is no try.
