Day 12 -
So I jumped on the scale this morn and I’ve gained 4 lbs and you know what that’s okay cause I know I’ve had some time off from being ill and just enjoying myself and that’s fine! You just have to hold yourself accountable and keep pushing. Starting today as a fresh day and not letting the scales bother me, made my proats as I always do and carry on my day as I normally would. Don’t let the scale affect your day! It doesn’t need to! Just acknowledge the number and then forget about it. It doesn’t and shouldn’t be at the front of your mind! Just keep working for yourself and you’ll get the results you want soon enough!
Weight loss isn’t always down, you will go up from time to time and that’s alright you just have to account for what your doing wrong I.e unhealthy choices on the weekends and change it. I’m not saying cut it all out oh no, I’m saying have Saturday as an unhealthy day and back to it Sunday or chose 2 out of the 6 meals you’ll eat on the weekend to be unhealthy instead of all 6 of them. Little things start to make the biggest difference. Like yesterday I had a Starbucks, m and ms and a slice of pizza I shouldn’t have had and it wasn’t even the weekend, my fault for giving into temptation late at night. I tracked it all at the end of the day and I was well over my cals so today I’m just gonna work on hitting those cals, not getting the Starbucks or anything else but also I’m not going to restrict myself or eat lettuce all day, it’s just a normal day and a normal routine.
It doesn’t matter what the scale says, weight gain is good and so is weight loss, be grateful you are alive and functioning and you can eat all the wonderful things you can eat and you can workout the way you do!
One day I will have a toned tum, a slimmer face etc and that’s what I’m working on, but to get there I know it won’t be easy. Holding myself accountable is the best thing I can do for my journey and my mindset. If I didn’t do that I wouldn’t be telling over 2000 of you that I gained weight but it helps me and it helps show some of you that it’s normal and it’s okay! ❤️
