Weigh In Day
At my weekly weigh in on March 30, my scale indicated that I had lost 2.4 pounds. I thought that was a bit odd, but I went with it because I stepped on the scale 3 times and got the same reading. The following week, where I focused on non-scale victories, according to my scale - which I believe is right, I gained at least 4.2 pounds.
Again, I wasn't sure if that was odd or not but I was so focused on non-scale victories (which are definitely important) that my mind wasn't fully wrapping around the numbers I saw on the scale. Yes, I was a little sad to see those numbers but it just forced me to push myself harder and realize that one week where I had a remarkable weight loss won't be the same for the rest of the weeks.
This week when I stepped on the scale, I lost 3 of those 4 pounds. Again I am taking this number with a grain of salt, mainly because I didn't follow up with what I saw last week on my weigh in day blog post. So, in order for me to get back to my lowest weight that I have been on this journey, I have to lose another 1.2 pounds.
Although, this is a minor setback, I feel that I can overcome it with hard work and dedication but I know it will take a lot of both. This is something that I have been bracing myself for and it is finally here so now I have to prove to myself that I can overcome this and not have it hold me back.
Total loss for this week: 3 pounds
Total loss for the month: 3 pounds (after a 4.2 pound gain earlier in the month)
Total loss since the start of this journey: 16 pounds (still proud of that number)
