Lesson Learned

I gained.  Ugh.....

I am up 0.4.  I know that is minuscule to some, but man!  What a disappointment.  And I know exactly what went wrong this week.  No breakfasts.

I did brunches instead, thinking I could be slick and combine breakfast and lunch so I wouldn't use that many points.  What ended up happening is that by dinner time, I was starving and overate.  I still kept within my points value, but there were a lot of points consumed late in the day with little or no activity.  Lesson learned.

This week I am making it a goal to stay on track and make sure I eat breakfast and lunch every day.

Today wasn't a good day with food.  I was so busy at work, I had to skip lunch.  Not a great start.  I weighed in around 4:30 today.  I had dinner before 7 pm and still have about 12 points left plus 3 activity points from walking on the treadmill this morning.  Don't think I am going to use them tonight.

I am not hanging my head in defeat.  I really learned a valuable lesson today on what I need to do.  I thought by changing it up this week a little bit would help, but it turned out the opposite.  The great thing is I am not going to give up over a silly 0.4 gain on the scale.  It's not even a half pound!

So, it's back to the basics for me this week.  I can't wait until next week.  I am going to kill that weigh in!


  1. Just a blip in the big picture. You can do this! You have a great attitude and that makes a world of difference.

  2. I agree with Stormy, just a blip! Next week you know what you change :D Keep rocking!

  3. Betcha if you weighed-in in the morning, your weight would have been 2 pounds lower. During the day our bodies retain water and I bet, you were holding onto water weight! Next time you will rock the scale! No worries:)

  4. You are learning....this is a process of changing and you are still growing...just pick yourself up and keep on going!
