My blog entry title is inspired by my Jenny Craig Counselor. He's always saying, "Keep that motivation goin' Christine!" Despite all of the anxiety that I had about my weigh-in today, I actually lost over a pound and in total have lost almost 10 lbs on the plan so far within a month. Although this week didn't bring any super significant weight loss, it definitely helped to boost my confidence even just a little bit. And although I felt like I had a bad week (cramming for exams and cheating during late night study sessions), I was still able to lose a little weight. I just have to keep reminding myself of how good I feel when I am active. It isn't just good for the obvious reason of getting in shape but it also helps with your mental health. I find that going for a walk/run really helps relieve stress. I used to be extremely athletic in high school, then I went to college and stopped being as active, and I really think a lot of my depression stems from that inactivity. Another motivational factor to get outside and get movin' is the weather has been beautiful! I think once exams are over and I can really devote my full attention to the plan I will be on the right track. It's all about believing in yourself and refusing to let the negative thoughts occupy your brain!
I am on my 28th day of Jenny and by the third week I was already slipping. I originally weighed 237lbs. when I first went in and after the first week I lost 6lbs. Obviously right off the bat the weight loss was fast, but now it has slowed down quite a bit. I'm only on the fourth week and I already feel myself losing the positivity that I had in the beginning and not believing in myself. I've strayed from the plan many times this week and I think a lot of it had to do with last week's weigh in. It really threw me off being positive about the whole thing. I didn't lose anything and even gained a tiny bit like point something lbs. I weigh 229 now. I'm so afraid because my weigh-in for this week is tomorrow and I'm thinking about skipping it just so I don't have to deal with seeing that I may have gained weight from cheating this week. On a positive note I have definitely upped my activity level. I started couch to 5k and went for a number of walks. I just really need to be patient and stay positive and not let my negative energy get me down and make me throw my hands up and say "I give up!" It is hard because I have hypothyroidism, so the weight loss process is going to be very slow no matter what. I just feel like it is out of my control and it really depresses me.
