I know I probably sound a bit too critical of myself with this, but I can’t help but feel that I messed up, big time.
We went to the doctor earlier this week, I believe it was on Wednesday. I weighed myself at home before we left and I was 213lbs. That was a huge shocker because my weigh in last Saturday was 217lbs. We went to the doctor’s office and I was 216 and that is to be expected since I weigh myself at home with just a shirt and my underwear, while at the doctor’s office I’m (obviously) wearing my shorts and a pair of shoes. My shoes alone seem to add 2lbs.
We were bragging all over the place how I had lost 48lbs (because my starting weight at the doctor’s office was 264, but my starting weight in the Noom app is 263.) and now I can’t say that it’s 48lbs anymore because of how little weight I lost this week. I was hoping for 213 again or at the very least 214, but there is nothing I can do now but do better this week.
I honestly don’t know what it was. I haven’t been eating any differently, so I can’t explain it. Perhaps I had 1 too many servings of wheat thins? Maybe I haven’t been eating enough vegetables, which I can agree I haven’t. Perhaps I need to start eating more steamed vegetables for snacks again like I used to because that helped me get to where I am today.
Oh well. I don’t want to be negative because if I’m negative then I will sabotage myself. Positive thinking is the only way to go in this situation. “I will do better next time” (chanting over and over).
Until next week… I hope to be at least 212 by then to make up for this setback.
