Gained some weight...it happens

The end of week 12 and it’s weigh-in day again. As I walked to the meeting with my son, in addition to commenting about the ice on the ground, I mentioned that I felt like I had not lost weight this week. And, as it turns out, I was right. I gained .4 pounds.

This is the second time since joining that I have gained a bit of weight. I ate according to plan, tracked everything, and still knew that I felt “off.” I blame it on catching a cold that began surfacing over the past couple of days, and today it seems to have taken hold.

Instead of feeling sorry for myself and whining about gaining part of a pound, I’m going to reflect on the fact that I have lost 14.2 pounds and that it was 24 degrees this morning, and I walked three miles round-trip to the meeting.

I’m also going to celebrate my son’s .6 pound loss for a total of 13.2 pounds in nine weeks. Great job, Alex!

And now, my cold and I are going to take a nap. We deserve it.

Talk to you soon.

  1. Hey you're doing GREAT! Your surviving the time of year everyone else gains at least 5 pounds. Just work on maintaining through the holidays and dig your teeth in thereafter. Take an extra walk in the cold weather...you'll burn off more energy.
