the dread weigh in....

Today as I climbed on the scale I did not do it in a nervous and worrying way... I was totally calm. I knew with exercising late, my dodgy hip still hurting me and eating those extra huge portions I was in for a gain. I did have a little worry last night that it would be a huge gain but I ONLY GAINED A POUND. and you know what? I'm ok with that. I know exactly where I went wrong this week. Which sets it apart from my one pound problems last week. I feel I deserved this weeks result.
So the new week begins... I am back on being positive, my eating is back on plan and the pain in my hip is almost none existant!

Tonight I am heading home for two weeks or so to visit the old family so a motivation top up shall be on the cards. I hope I can use the gym there temporarily with out having to have an induction. The wii fit is packed and ready to go though I have yet to pack my clothes.... 

With knowing I was going to gain this week and the hope that I would accept it gracefully I decided to step up my motivation book. Yep. My printer got some new ink and I printed out all the horrible photos of me looking fat and enormous. The really horrid ones I can't stand to look at. Also I took some some ones of me naked. There are no photos like me naked to stir motivation to lose weight. It reminds me why I am doing it. I hate those lumps and bumps and can't stand looking and feeling this way. Not juts focusing on the negative.. I created several postive pages too, ones where I like how I look and are of me shrinking so all my post weigh in photos are there. Theres record of my new recipes tried and a progress chart :D Oh yeah I was getting creative and I love cutting and sticking lol. *sigh*

A new week.....

Great way to be positive! It's just one week, and if it gets you back on track, it's worth it. Way to go on your motivation book!

Good luck this week.

Naked pictures is really brave. I hope it helps your motivation. I would not have the nerve!

Tony said...

Yeah! Not worrying about a gain is great. That dumb scale needs to be taken to the trash compactor.

Hee, hee. The Wii before the clothes. Now THOSE, my friend, are priorities! Oh, I have a weight loss scrapbook! It's charting my progress and my struggles. It's a great motivator. Kudos!

Naked pics? No way in HELL would I do that. You are one brave woman.

And wtg on getting back on the wagon. Good to hear that your hip is on the mend.

Safe journey!

Naked pictures!? You deserve a medal for bravery in combat!

Naked photos? You little minx!

Sounds like an awesome idea with the book thingy. I think you're supercool, FYI.

On ya. 1 lb isn't anything to be worried about :)

Hope the trip home is another good one, and cool idea with the motivation book. I tried something kind of similar to that, it was a motivation wallpaper (for the computer). I joined two photos of me at my heaviest and set it to wallpaper. It didn't work though, because I was trying to shame myself into losing weight. But I like that you're doing the progress photos as well. That's been working for me :)

There are lots of bumps on this path. If you can take them all for the lessons they present and not beat yourself up for them, you'll avoid more bumps. So keep that positive attiude up.

Think of doing better over being perfect. Perfection tends to make us manic, which often leads to trouble. Been there, done that.

Enjoy your trip!

Be patient, and own the patience with yourself. Do what you can while you are with the family... I like to think that moderation is the only thing we can do sometimes. Keep us all updated.

Hey I'm proud that you stepped back on the scale so calm! When I have a bad week I shy away from the scale and bite my nails while waiting for it to spit out a number at me. In my opinion you're already on your way to a better place!
