Weigh In Wednesday - Weight Gain

I was right with my last post that I would gain weight.  Unfortunately I gained 4.4 lbs.

There is a few things I have learned about myself in this weight loss journey.  First I have had an issue when it comes to stress.  When I get stressed or depressed I start to eat.  This I have known, but I have not been able to fix.  Well I should not say that, I have been able to go run to fix it, and since I am not able to run I just picked up the food.

I am thankful for a few reasons - first I did not go back over 200 lbs.  I was able to stop myself a few times.  I am disappointed with myself because I just stopped tracking what I was eating.  That seems to be another key to my success I need to track what I am eating.

Many of the stresses I had this week are ongoing, and I will be able to fix them, eventually, but I know it will take time.  I am starting to control my eating and I am forcing myself to track again.  I know that I need to stay on program.  So I had a bad week I can keep going.

Here is to a week that I can stay positive!

  1. I just came over to your blog via Jodi's, and I wanted to say that your weight loss is incredibly inspiring! I usually gain a couple of pounds in the immediate weeks after a marathon as my body adjusts to lower mileage and I don't tend to be as vigilant with my eating as I do during the taper. Good luck with getting back on track with journaling!
