Better Choices – Weigh in Wednesday

Listen up. This last week has been complete and utter shit show a challenge, and I’m working towards making some better choices. (LOOK AT THAT BETTER POSITIVE SPEECH RIGHT THERE!) But for real, didn’t make the best choices… but I have to say, I did pretty darned good at moving on and not obsessing about it. Granted, I’m a whopping two days out of that epiphany so the motivation is still strong… but still… I’m gonna take it.

All-in-all I definitely could have made some better choices. But the silver lining, I still make some pretty awesome choices in this past week.

Biggest bummer moment was that I did a ton of walking several days in a row, but I’d forgotten to charge my FitBit… dundundunnnnnnnn… Leave it to me to ignore the 99 million notifications that my battery was low. Oh well.

While it might have seemed like quite the shit show, I have to say it wasn’t the worst it could have gone.

So my last weigh in was the result of trying to fix some broken things I’d done to myself over the last several months. I’d gained back some weight I hadn’t lost in the best way, and then re-lost some weight. Phew. It was like the biggest drama fueled yo-yo moment of weight loss.

Of course, I’m not expecting things to magically get better over night. But I did have several opportunities that I could have completely messed up, and continued to mess up. Miraculously, I didn’t. Not sure where that came from (read: temporary motivation?).

So this week, I’m really practicing the whole moving on from “poor” decisions. I’m that kind of person that when I “mess up” I just overhaul and pretty much give up. It’s a “well, Monday is already screwed, might as well throw my hands up” kind of situation I’ve got going on.

But I didn’t. I ended my days strongly, even if they didn’t start out that way. Sure, there were days that I went way over my calorie intake, but I didn’t blow dinner…because I MADE BETTER CHOICES (did ya guess that??). Which all goes along the lines of that whole #progressnotperfection that I’m really falling in love with.

So anyways,

Last weigh-in: 198.8
This weigh-in: 198.2
Lost: .6
Total lost from highest: 65.8

So, .6 pound loss. Silver lining (again, there’s that phrase again) that’s over a half a pound down! Not what I was secretly hoping for, but I still made steps in the right direction. Might not have been on the scale… but there were definitely some non-scale victories in there!

I’ll take it!
