Man, can I just tell you I love this woman??! She told me exactly what I needed to hear. I listened to every word, got all my tears out, told her I loved her, then went back in the meeting room. It still took me a few more hours to fully get over it...........now you're probably wondering what I gained if you're not on my FB. I gained 0.2lbs.
Yea... You're probably right and I know what I would tell you, and you, and you, and everybody reading this. I know what I would tell Daphne if it were her calling me crying. I know what I'd tell Stephanie if it were her weighing in. I know what I'd tell ANY Weight Watchers member. But in that moment, I did not care. I was PISSED! I was UPSET! I was ANGRY! And no matter how much I KNEW....it didn't change how I FELT.
Now as you know, I have been OKAY with gains in the past. Shoot...in the last four months I don't even remember how many gains I have had, there have been so many. But this gain was different because 1) I had psyched myself up. I thought I finally broke the plateau, I lost 3lbs last week, etc etc etc and I just KNEW I would lose ONE STINKIN POUND this week. 2) I made such a big deal about it to everyone around me. 3) Honestly sit here and tell me that if you were ONE pound away from such a HUGE milestone, you wouldn't be upset that you worked your behind off and didn't get it either?
Anybody in their right mind would feel a little bummed!! I seriously was so well behaved this week and worked my hiney off and the scale just DID NOT CARE!
BUT..................with all that being said...............
I am over it.
I got it all out of my system and I'm over it. It's a new week. Although I didn't start this week off too well with my eating, tomorrow is a new day and I will reach my 100lbs mark as well as my goal soon enough!
How I dealt with it:
^ I reminded myself that I still BELIEVE. I took this picture and admired my waistline, my arms, and my thighs and reminded myself that I am already THERE....the rest is just numbers.
^ I bought myself a new dress. Nothing retail therapy can't fix.
^ I spent time with my family and enjoyed all the compliments that came my way from family I haven't seen in a while.
*I tried on a pair of size 8 slacks that were huge on me and plan to go try on some 6's tomorrow*
*I celebrated that my Facebook page is now inspiring 1,011 people at this time and those 1,011 people appreciate the fact that I am not perfect!!*
I reminded myself that I'm human.
I'm not a weight loss machine.
You win some, you lose some.
It's part of the journey.
And 98.8lbs is equally as commendable as 100lbs.
