The end of this week marks the end of my 10 week journal. With only one weigh in remaining I flipped to the front to see what goal I had set myself only to discover that (going off last weeks weigh in) I’m 1.5lb heavier than I was at the start of the journal!
So, I had two options:
1-berate myself for being a ‘failure’ OR
2-acknowledge that in those 10 weeks I had Christmas/New Year, 2 friends 40th plus my own 40th party week and had a great time plus got back on track when I needed to.
Friday (well Saturday as we know that what we eat on weigh in day doesn’t count 😉 ) will be the start of a new 10 week journal which takes me to the third week in May and the week before I am a bridesmaid for my sister.
So this time when I write my end goal for those 10 weeks not only will I look back at this journal and at the meals I enjoyed that kept me on track and the weeks where I have blank pages or a big X with ‘write off’ wrote on it (you know you do it:) )and learn from it but also look at my weight loss since I started because to move forward it sometimes helps to look back
