My last couple posts have been about the "cheating" that I did this week -- and the anxiety that I felt as a result. I am hopeful that my future posts will be a little more forgiving of myself because my weigh-in today was very positive.
I lost 6.6 lbs this past week.
6.6 lbs in one week. And not my first week either. It's actually more than I'd lost in the previous 2 weeks combined. I had been quite happy with my 3 lb losses the last couple weeks, but I am stunned that I lost 6.6 lbs the week that I had been kicking myself for eating off-plan a few times.
It helps, I suppose, that I was sick over New Years and didn't end up going to our friend's annual New Years Day brunch. But even if I had gone, I think I could have made good choices and still been okay.
But 6.6 lbs is better than okay. I'm still in shock and I certainly don't expect it to happen again. But it's nice to know that I can go a little easier on myself.
