I have lost weight before, and the worst thing about losing weight is gaining it back. I got used to everyone saying, "Have you lost weight?" "You look great." Then one day, people stopped asking that question.
I lost 30 pounds, and I was feeling great. Then we moved to MD, and I couldn't make it to my WW meetings anymore. I also started to cook every meal at home. Shad has a freakishly high metabolism, and he eats big portions. When I cook for him, I have to make a big meal, and somebody has to eat all of it. With all those excuses, I gained the 30 pounds back.
When I would see people I hadn't seen in a while, I knew the first 3 seconds they saw me they thought, "She's gained all her weight back." Sometimes, I just wanted to walk up to people and say, "Nice to see you. Yes, I have gained all my weight back."
After such a great victory of losing the weight, I had a hard time facing the failure of gaining it back.
Although, I may have failed at keeping the weight off, there is no rule that says I can't try again. I may fail again and gain it all back, but I can't live my life not trying just because I think I will fail.
Week #4- Lost 2.3 pounds!
Total Weight Loss- 11.2 pounds!
This week I passed the 10 pound mark, and I'd like to take a moment to remember those 10 pounds. Please take a moment of silence for those ten pounds.
