My Weight Loss Journey V2 – Weeks 3, 4, 5, 6

Life (well mostly work) has been busy for the past few weeks so I’m way behind with my updates, but still trying to stay on track. Some days have been better than others as you’ll see below.

Week 3

I fell a little off track this week. I didn’t feel well on Friday, had to cancel some plans to go out to meet friends for a play and ended up ordering in dinner because I didn’t want to cook. I chose a fairly healthy dinner, but I went a bit overboard on the rice, and pita bread. I have to tell you though, that the pita bread was so delicious; baked goods really are my downfall.

I tried to get back on track for the remainder of the weekend so even though the scale didn’t reflect it, I will still call my week a win, after all I’m back to trying to treat this as a lifestyle change, not a diet. Minor setbacks will happen on occasion, even once I’m at goal, so it’s best not to dwell on the negatives, but just to move on from them.

My little setback had me gaining 1.2 pounds on my third week back on the WW program, but it’s not the end of the world.

Week 4

Week 4 and I was back to tracking consistently, and making healthy choices, and the scale showed it in a small way with a 0.8-pound loss. Every little win adds up to success, and I tell myself that all the time. I see a lot of people discouraged when they don’t lose huge amounts all at once or gain a little bit. It’s easy to lose sight of the ultimate goal, which is learning to make better choices, and get healthier.

Week 5

This week I had another small gain of 0.6 pounds. I have a feeling this time around is going to be a bit more of a rollercoaster, or maybe it’s because of the time of year that I’m starting. I find it a lot more difficult to stay on track in the fall during the holiday season, but if I’m trying, I’m at least not still just continuing to gain weight so even if the loss is small over all during this period, I’m still closer to my ultimate goal.

Week 6

This will catch me up to the current week as my weigh in day was Monday. I had another loss of 1.1 pounds, so that felt good. Unfortunately, after weigh in day I may have indulged a bit too much after a few stressful workdays, I guess I’ll find out on Monday.

I’m still keeping positive and trying to plan better for those stressful days so that I’m not tempted to make poor choices. I’m a work in progress.

  1. Keep on keeping on. As I blogged about earlier this week, a little indulgence won’t hurt. Everything in moderation. If you deny yourself all the time, you’ll come to hate the food you are trying to do. You’re doing great! Have a great weekend.

    All the best,
    Brett
