Last week was both trying and triumphant! You wouldn’t think that a 1.6lb gain would be considered “triumphant”, but it really was.
Yesterday marked six weeks into my Transformation Day 2012 challenge. I weighed 265.8, 12lb lost since July 25. At one point last week, I skated amazingly close to 15lb lost, but that was short-lived.
The week was trying as far as my food and weight were concerned because my weight kept fluctuating, and for the first time in weeks, I was craving things that I choose not to eat. I just wasn’t feeling settled about my food, my eating, and my weight. At times, it was tough to stick with my “just think about today” mantra, but I pulled through it.
I suspect that I was having issues last week because I ate pork chops four different times last week. I love pork chops, and I got two packages cheap at Kroger. Back in 2008 though, when I had a round of allergy tests run, I showed as slightly allergic to pork. I’m guessing that’s what threw me off last week. So this week, it’s back to my usual eggs, chicken, beef, and vegetables.
I consider last week triumphant because I made it through a trying week without giving up. I kept talking to myself, encouraging myself, and putting one foot in front of the other. For me, this is huge because in times past, if I would have experienced the craving and the scale bouncing, I would have just thrown in the towel. Not last week though! I made it!
