And no, it's not gansta. I knew that's what you all were thinking. Weirdos. Why would I blog about that? Other than the fact that I'm totally thug. I grew up on the mean streets of Santa Barbara, fools. Don't question me.
Where did that come from? I don't even know...
That lovely g-word...
How to deal with weight *gulp* gain.
I stepped on the scale this morning. So shitty that my weigh in day is the day after
National Beer & Brats Day, our Nation's birthday. So, naturally, I drank like the lush I was before I started trying to lose weight more than I usual would, but actually didn't eat any more than normal, so that's good.
But, today, I stepped on the scale and gained 1.1 lbs since last Thursday morning. Not only that, but the prior 4 weeks, I had only lost 2 lbs. Which means, I'm slowing down, big time.
I set little motivational reminders on my phone. I put in my calendar every 5lb milestone and set a reminder to pop up on my phone. Well, I was supposed to weigh 160 yesterday. Mother f... That stung. Big time. Especially after stepping on the scale to have it read 170.2.
So, how do you get past it?
stop being a little bish, and just do.
You have to realize it was one week.
It's over with.
You can't change what just happened.
You can only change it for next week.
I could sit there and say ef it. I'm at my average weight for my height. I feel good, I'll just stop here.
But guess what. Average isn't good enough.
And I won't be happy until I hit my peak and I know that this is not my peak.
What am I going to do?
I'm going to re-visit my meals from when I was losing a pound a week, and get back to that.
I'm going to continue to track my points.
I'm going to realize that even if I slow down, it does not mean I should stop trying.
I'm also going to try to cut my lunch & dinner in half and replace that half with a salad with healthy dressing.
Fun fact: dressings are one of the worst things you could ever eat, so choose very, very wisely. I like Sister's SASS Caesar dressing. Has 3 points in 2 tablespoons, and I only use 1 tablespoon.
If you you experience a gain, get over it. Don't use it as an excuse to eat like shit. Only losers make excuses like that. And we all know that you're a winner, because only winners read my blog.
