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.
