Well it's Monday and I got on the scale. Not happy, I'm up 2 lbs. Very frustratiing. Of course as I look back over the last week I realise that I ate too much of the wrong food. That's life, you put more fuel in than your body can burn and you gain weight. But still seeing the scale go the wrong way does bother me.
Then I think about a commercial that really bugs me. It's a cartoon of a dancing fat woman who decides with the new year to go on a diet. She starts out and then life gets in the way. Her she gains 2 lbs because of social commitments after losing a couple of lbs. Her only solution, an elastic band around her stomach so she can't eat as much. When I see that ad I get angry. Surely on set back doesn't mean you throw out all the work you've done to have a medical intervention. So now I have to do the hard work. Actually apply what my brain tells me is right and follow it. Then as if I needed a back up on my thoughts Yoni Freedhoff writes a kick as blog today in Weighty Matters http://www.weightymatters.ca/2015/03/why-im-not-fazed-by-long-term-weight.html. I put this link here because I'll need to read this blog over and over this week.
I will not let this weeks numbers take me off track. I will be a healthy fit woman in spite of myself.
