I have a confession to make. I weighed myself last week, but I was so discouraged, I didn't log in to report my results. It just felt lame to make excuses.
I know that's wrong -- we need to be honest and report both the ups and down. I know it can be encouraging to me to look down the names recorded on "Mr. Linky" and see both pluses and minuses -- encouraging because it tells me we're not alone in having up and down weeks.
So -- I apologize for that.
I knew I had not been on track, but last week I was up by over 5 lbs. It was also "that time of month" (again! Only 23 days since the last time!) and I knew that was a factor, but I didn't realize how much of a factor.
This week I am down by 5 from last week, but I am not going to ask for my - 5 lb. button because I have only lost 4 since the beginning of the challenge. I've been up and down with those 4, but I am hoping this week to progress. A big event and some other busy-ness are over now, so I will be able to get back to tracking what I eat and focusing on what I need to do.
