Well… I got on the scale this morning and said, “That’s it… I quit!!!”
I was UP another 1.5 pounds, which makes for an overall gain of 2 pounds in the last 3 weeks, and a grand total of a whopping THREE POUNDS LOST in the last TWO AND A HALF MONTHS!!!
Yep… I was seriously ready to quit… and depressed about it too! In fact, I even left Regina a comment letting her know that I was quiting. 🙂 That comment inspired Michelle, who is doing awesome, to pay me a visit and leave me a comment on last weeks post. She said:
I just saw your post over at Regina’s blog. Don’t quit! If you had a setback, you can recover. If it’s tough because of nursing, I’m with you. And recovering from baby #6 is just simply harder, too, let me tell you. You’ve been doing fine. You can keep it up. Just have patience, honey.
Thank you Michelle, I needed to hear that. And, I wasn’t really going to quit! I just haven’t taken any CraveArrest since Friday — and it is catching up with me. It really does help control not only my cravings, but my mood swings as well… To top it off, it hasn’t been the easiest week to be dieting… I traveled out of state, was slightly stressed about losing my cameras, and definitely drank way too many Venti White Chocolate Mochas in an attempt to calm my nerves! YIKES!!! 630 calories each!! I’m lucky I didn’t gain even more.. I guess I should have checked the calorie content, before ordering them each day of my trip. Oh! And that bag of Moose Munch didn’t help either, I sure! What is it about traveling that makes one feel like it is ok to eat junk? I have to cut that out!!!
OK… Enough excuses. I have another trip coming up in two weeks, so I will start over
tomorrow right now! I would love to be able to lose at least 5 pounds (of my 20 pound goal). Wish me luck!
