Week Thirteen Weigh-In:
12/31/2015: + 3.4 pound
Total lost: 23.2 pounds
Current Weight: 206.8 pounds
Wow... seeing this kind of number on the scale again was pretty depressing. I almost didn't weigh in today but my friends made some good points when I mentioned skipping the weigh in and, frankly, I made the choice to stuff myself full of calories and carbs and now I need to face the consequences and the consequences suck. I honestly did not expect to gain so much back but it is what it is. I've been on track since the 26th so I'm just going to keep going and hopefully watch the numbers drop again (and feel the jeans get looser).
So, like I asked myself in my last blog post on Tuesday, was it worth it? Well, it definitely wasn't worth gaining over three pounds! I expected a pound or two but not this much and I'm still not convinced that it's all "real" weight so I'm hoping a chunk of it is gone by next week but I don't regret allowing myself to relax and enjoy food that I only eat once or twice a year. It's just that next time I need to make the portions a whole lot smaller!
This week I plan to stick with my regular eating plan without exceptions and Monday I have a training session with my trainer so I'll finally add in some exercise (as long as the back holds out). I've definitely been doing much better on my protein amounts but want to keep upping them even more.
That about covers it for now.
