30 x 30 Week Five


I weigh myself twice a week -- Wednesday and Sunday mornings. I should have known, after Wednesday's weigh in, that I wasn't going to be thrilled with Sunday's.

According to the scale pre-breakfast/post-pumping, I'm up another 1 lb. this week.

And I'm discouraged. And because I'm discouraged, I find myself saying, "I don't care," and opening the pantry door. BAD!!!!!

I don't know if it's partially due to not having access to MFP this week (major computer issues having me using Jim's work laptop only sporadically), or if it has been the inability to work out at home, or due to several meals out (no matter how healthy of choices I make).

I think my goal of 30 x 30 may be unrealistic, but I'm going to stick to it and just keep keeping on. I'm sure I'll need to reevaluate my goals next month, but for now, I'm going to try to just stick with what was working in the beginning, and keep making healthy choices, and pray that our friend Kevin can fix my laptop so things can get back on track...

Here are the sad stats for the week:

Weight loss

• None. Shame on me, I actually gained another 1 addition to the 3 I gained last week. =(
• Total lost since July 6th: 5 lbs.
• Pounds to go in Phase Two: 11 lbs. Mini-goal is still to be done with Phase Two by August 12 August 25.

Monica...I can sooooo relate to this struggle. You are telling my own story...right down to your "I don't care" reaction! Praying for both of us as we continue to keep on keeping on!

The struggle is awful. I've been dealing with gains, little losses, & an overall plateau now for going on over a month. It's TOUGH.

Hang in there & know that being honest about the gains will help you in the long run.

We all have mis-steps. The difference between those of us that succeed and those of us that fail is the ability to identify them & fix the issue. You're doing great! Keep up the awesome work! Even though the scale doesn't show it, you are learning & it'll pay off. Promise. Love you, lady! *hugs*
