Today is weigh-in day which is usually pretty exciting. But the last few weeks have been rough, and I’m anxious to see the 100 pound milestone in the rear view mirror. I’m not sure what the result will be when I step on the scale because I haven’t really followed my regular plan in the last few days.
I have not been hungry. In fact, I’ve been sick to my stomach for a few days so I haven’t eaten as much as usual. I usually consume 35 WW points per day, and I have only eaten 26 per day since Monday. I’ve learned that it’s important to eat all of my points, and I didn’t do that this week. So what will that mean for the scale?
I worked out all week – even today which wasn’t easy. (Not feeling so great, remember?) And I have to be honest..if I don’t see a loss this week, I’ll be upset. I don’t like the feeling I get when I’m forcing myself to eat something. I’ve done it before in the hopes of losing because I’ve heard how important it is to eat enough. But this week I just couldn’t do it. Well, I suppose I could have…I just didn’t.
I ate what I felt like my body needed, and after feeling sick Monday night when I forced myself to eat broccoli, I decided to take it easy. We’ll see how it goes. I hope I’m not disappointed in myself for listening to my body.
Either way, I have to keep looking forward. I know what I’m supposed to do, and I need to do it (even when that means I need to eat more.) So wish me luck when I step on the scale. I might need it. More importantly, wish me strength. I need that too.
Do you ever struggle to eat enough? Am I the only overweight person on the planet who sometimes struggles to eat enough? Just wondering…
