Two Steps Back

Today is November 15th and this is weigh in day.  This time the numbers were not in line with my goal as the title of this post suggests.  I have gained back two pounds.

I had a feeling this might happen.  As I mentioned in a previous blog post I was sick a couple of days and felt that it had contributed to my weight loss.  I also did a few other things that I knew might have a negative impact on my goal.  I am referring to eating out and going to the movies where I shared a soda and candy with my kids.  This reinforces that I need to be very careful with my diet.

I said I would be honest with the soda consumption so here is another confession.  I did steal a drink of my daughter's soda last night just to see if she would notice.  It is kind of funny, my kids have been really supportive but also tough on me.  They are not going to let me cheat.  Which kind of makes me feel guilty for swiping that drink.  That is a good thing.

I have to admit that I am a little bit disappointed.  However, I have said many times I recognize that this will not happen quickly.  Tempering my expectations helps some when I run into a set back like this.  It is time to add walking to the mix.  On nights when I do not have my kids I will start to walk and see how things go from there.  I enjoy walking and the cool temperatures will be a plus.  This is one of the positive things about living in Arizona.  While many regions are freezing at this time of year I get to enjoy cool walks at night.

To summarize where I currently stand I am now only down five pounds with 146 more to go to be below two hundred.  Time to step it up!  Thanks to all of you for your support and words of encouragement.  It really is appreciated.
