When people come to the scales and find out they’ve gained weight, they tend to do one of two things. They either look at me and admit everything they did, or they try to pretend that there’s nothing different they tried and they just don’t know why it didn’t work. Chances are they did something that they’ve either forgotten or just don’t want to admit.
It was weigh in day on the 100 Day Challenge, and I gained a pound. I wasn’t going to be the latter. I know exactly what I did wrong and to be honest was expecting a lot worse.
You see, the week hasn’t been great. While I stayed just within my points, yesterday was an absolutely disaster. I started to feel rotten by the evening and when my husband called to suggest we pick up tonight’s dinner yesterday, I said I wanted some quick and easy for last night’s dinner and I just didn’t care what it was. We opted for the frozen pizza section to enjoy them while we watched a movie.
The Weight Watchers diet was the last thing on my mind. No, it’s not good as a leader but we’re all human. We all have bad weeks and days, and it’s about taking control as soon as possible.
I’m taking control right now. I didn’t want to get on the scales, but I did. In fact, I dreaded what they were going to tell me, but how else was I going to know the damage that I did? Now that I know, I can draw a line under it and get back on track again.
There are no excuses for what I did. It was my own fault and I’m owning up to it. That’s important, whether on a 100 Day Challenge like this or not. If you don’t own up to the things that you did, you can’t put it right. The only person you’re cheating by lying and “forgetting” is yourself. I’m not going to keep letting myself down.
