Last week, Parker was here, and I had an incredible time, but my weigh in last Saturday was not very good at all. As soon as I took him to the airport, I can home and got myself back on track. I personally this this week has been a good one for me. I have made a lot of realizations when it comes to weight loss and weight and things like that.
This whole process has not only been about the numbers but learning a lot about myself as well. I have learned so much about the types of food I need to be eating, and how I need to be working out. I have also learned that I am much stronger and I can handle so much more than I ever thought possible, both physically while working out, and emotionally. I used to get on a scale and cry when I saw the number, or look at myself and cry when I saw the person looking back at me because I KNEW that person was not me. That person was a shell of the person I knew I could be. I have learned to not depend on a scale. I now know that it is more about how I feel then about that number so i need to DRILL that into my head. Remember that every single day.
This week I worked out on my own, and I am actually sitting in my workout clothes with my weights just waiting for my breakfast to digest to get a workout in for today, I saw my trainer, Peg, I ate really well, and I think when I go in for my weigh in on Saturday I will have lost some of if not all of the weight that I gained last week. My weight watcher counselor was great about it and told me that since I put it on that quickly, I just needed to get back on track and work out a little extra, and I would be able to lose it quickly.
