Weight lost since the start of the challenge- 2.5 lbs
Total weight loss since Hailey was born- 35.5 lbs
I was not happy to see the scales today and they were not happy to see me. If there was a window in my bathroom I would have thrown the scales right out onto the ground below.
There is one word needed to tell you why last week did not go well- snacking.
Last Tuesday, after my successful weigh-in, I decided that since I had an entire week before I had to weigh in again that I would indulge and eat just 2 Chips Ahoy cookies. Then of course, just 2 more. And then 2 more. Before I knew it I had eaten half of the box of the cookies. Wednesday I ate the other half. Thursday was good because, well, there weren't any cookies left. Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday I found many other things to snack on, none of them healthy. I have been a bit stressed this week, but that is no excuse. Just because I feel stressed does not mean I should stuff my face. Most of the time I was snacking I was not even hungry.
The good news is that I still walked everyday. I really enjoy my walks with Hailey, so it's not even hard for me to get that done.
It's so discouraging that it took me so long to lose that weight and in one week I gained 3 pounds back. I thought about just giving up, but then I looked at one of my pre-pregnancy skinny pictures and I know that I felt so much better when I was that size. So, here I am ready to get back on the wagon. I'll continue my exercise, make better food choices, and drink more water.
