Baby Steps – Weigh-in Wednesday

My last weigh-in I’d gone on about the woes of yo-yoing for the last four months. Hitting 206 and 218, and every number in between. Several times.

So, it obviously wasn’t the post that I’d wanted to do. Come on, I’d gained 4.6 pounds since my last weigh in back in January. Who in their right mind would be excited about yo-yoing. Uhh, no one, that’s who. Regardless if your goal is to lose weight or gain weight or even maintain. Yo-yoing is definitely not the goal.

So, this past week I’ve just kept up with the small changes. Using a FitBit and tracking my water (which, to be totally honest, has been crap levels), and of course being more mindful of what I’m eating.

I haven’t really done much more past that. Too many things at once is is surefire way to set myself up for failure. Something I know about myself, I get overwhelmed and confused, which eventually turns into throwing my hands up.

Slow and steady is the goal.

Doesn’t really seem like much, but it did help something.

Last weigh-in: 215.8
This weigh-in: 214.6
Lost: 1.2
Total lost from highest: 54.1

A pound, I’ll take it.

It’s not much, and of course a week of weigh loss does not show a trend. But it’s a baby step. An itty bitty one pound baby step. Considering I’m still motivated after that, I’ll take that as a win.

It’s the small things, right?

Even if I only continue to lose a pound a week, I’m still making progress.

At this point, it’s something I have to focus on. The small things. The baby steps. Those little moments that make me want to continue, and not slapping so much on my plate that I just ignore all my plans.

At least, that’s what I keep telling myself.

Weeks of consecutive weight loss = ONE
