The Reason I’ve Not Blogged …

May 18th marked 3 months of being back on Weight Watchers.  I nearly threw up when I stepped on the scale for my weekly weigh-in and saw that I gained three pounds.  Seriously?  I’ve not gained an ounce the entire time I’ve been on the plan, but this is the milestone day where I gain not one, not two, but THREE pounds?  Oy vey.

May has been a rough month.  There’s a lot going on and I know I haven’t been eating as healthy as I should.  I’ve even dipped into my weekly allowance points, which is something I never do.  Granted, I’ve not gone over — and I still haven’t touched my activity points each week.  But it’s still enough to make me feel frustrated.

Those pants that fit on May 12?  They are now a little tighter.

So I’m frustrated.  With myself for ever having gotten this big.  With myself for not having a successful week on the plan.  And most importantly, for struggling to see that these hurdles are OKAY.  That there will be bumps in the road.  But some day soon, I will reach my goals and be a healthier me.  That day will come.  I just need to have patience.

I continue to be inspired by friends.  Other bloggers are a great source of inspiration as well.  I, like the rest of the country, is disgusted by Abercrombie & Fitch’s very public statement that they only want to sell to pretty, thin people.  Jackasses.

But I have to give major credit to Jes, who said a big “F You” to them in a series of photos, wearing their clothes.  Rock on girl.  Carry that torch and show them that beauty comes in ALL shapes and sizes.  You rock – and remind me to embrace who I am.  No matter what my size.

    Love your tweet about “weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint”. You’re doing great, you are heading towards a healthier version of you and without bumps in the road, you’d give up. Keep at it girl!

  2. Even though I do NOT like the finger in this pose, I am so grateful that you are who you are, recognizing that one doesn’t need to be a size two to be healthy! God created us uniquely and we should revel in that. Keep striving for excellence! You are special! Blessings,

      Thank you! I should clarify that’s not me in the picture. It’s the blogger, Jes. Thanks!

    I’ve had a similar experience recently. Last week I went over my weeklies for the first time… after 4 months of ending with at least 20-30 remaining. I was home for my grandmothers funeral and ate/drank like crap. I regretted the entire time and even more when I stepped on the scale and had a gain. Here’s to resetting this week!

    Setbacks happen – the important thing is what you do after they happen. Just keep moving forward. You will get there!
