Weight Loss Wednesday: Week Two
I have not lost an ounce despite monitoring everything I've eaten and working out religiously for the past four days.
"But, I thought you were reporting on the past seven days", you might be wondering.
OK - full disclosure time...I fell off of the proverbial 'wagon' last week AWOL from the gym and eating with free abandon for three days showed up on the scale today.
Bottom line: you play...you pay. It is what it is.
So, I'm proud to say that I brushed myself off and got back on that wagon three days ago. I'm feeling good about that.
Years ago, following an unsuccessful weight loss week and/or a trip to the all-you-can-eat buffet, I would have thought "screw it", ordered a bacon cheeseburger with fries "to-go" and curled up with a pint of Haagen-das in front of the TV set before falling into a carb-induced coma.
Today, I'm aware of the fact that it's all about "consistency".
Consistently eating burgers,fries and ice cream = Weight Gain
Consistently controlling calorie intake and exercising = Weight Loss
The way I look at it is...I'll have good days and bad days but overall, my goal remains to be healthier and lose 18 more pounds.
Gotta go to the gym now... How did you do?
