Fat be Gone Friday::: Robyn's weigh in day

I had an incredibly hectic Friday. I sat down to write my blog post, but with only 15 minutes until I had to leave to the baseball fields I wasn’t able to finish. So, I’m a day late and a dollar short. I am still using my weight from Friday morning.

Nothing gained nothing lost. That about says it all. But, I am feeling really optimistic. Guess what happened to me?!?! I FOUND THE WAGON!!!!! I don’t know why they call it a wagon. I’ve ridden in a wagon before. It’s a bit bumpy but quite pleasant. I think weight loss is more like the hand carts that were used by my pioneer ancestors. This is no easy ride. I am pushing and pulling and working for every step. I counted every calorie I ate starting Monday. I am feeling more confident in my ability to eat right and really stick to my calorie goal. So although, I didn’t lose I feel like I am turning a corner. I am choosing to look back at what I have accomplished and not beat myself up. It’s a journey. It’s MY journey. I do have to make an effort not to compare myself to others and to remind myself not to be sad at my own pace. But, I feel good about what I am doing. I am not giving up. And though I may not be down this week, I’m also not up. Somehow I’m really excited for next Friday. Instead of getting sad, I’m getting mad. I feel more motivated and more determined than ever.   

P.S. I weighed myself this morning and I'm down today :) I'm really hoping for a big week. My psyche needs it!!!!!!

You write beautifully, I love what you say about not comparing yourself to others, I feel that I was finally able to reach that level as well and that is why I am so happy now, because it's a race against my own self. Good work! and don't stress so much about the weightloss, focus more on how clothes fit. Muscle replaces fat and the weight can stay the same, but it will take up 1/3 less space on your body!

Glad you're back on the wagon--or hand cart ;) It's an up and down battle, but the important thing is that we're doing it and we're not just sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves. We're doing something about our health, our well being, our lives!
So proud of your outlook! This is YOUR week!
