Wednesday Weigh In {Week 10}

I kind of can't believe I've been doing this for 10 weeks already. I also can't believe that I've only lost a little over 4 pounds in the last 10 weeks. 
That kind of bums me out. A lot.

Losing weight takes a lot of hard work, and while I've been working hard in some areas there are other areas that I have not. It is very apparent that I've still got a very long road ahead of me. I was worried about today's weigh in for a few reasons:

1) I didn't drink enough water this past week. I drank so little water in fact that I was dehydrated and getting awful headaches over the weekend. I can't let that happen anymore.

2) I need to learn to treat myself in moderation.

I have done really well in moderating the type of foods I eat as well as the amount of food that I eat except for when it comes to something that I consider a "treat." For example, on Sunday night I made cinnamon rolls from scratch. I knew I was going to have one and I was okay with having just one. However, over the next few days I didn't have just one. It was more like three. Those bad boys were amazingly delicious and they were also about 500 calories a piece. This is not okay Lacey! 
I knew it was a bad idea, but I did it anyway. 

I've got to learn how to treat myself within reason. How do you deal with this? 

I'm up .2 pounds from last week. I know that this isn't  HUGE gain, but it's a gain, which is obviously not the direction I'm trying to go here..

I'm trying not to bummed out about it because it happens. I'm just tired of going up and down over and over again. 

Tell me what helps you to stay on track with making good choices, please!

  1. Just STICK WITH IT!!!! You can do it!!!!

  2. Girl I'm in the exact same boat! I've been hosting my link-up for 10 weeks and I should be down so much more than I am! I've been all over the place and haven't been dedicated like I need to. I'm using this week to get back to the basics so that I can get back on track. Hopefully by this time next week I'll be in a much better place! Hope this week is better for you too!

  3. I have been eating everything in sight this week! So I guess my advice to myself and you is just don't have that crap around then we won't eat it! haha! Easier said than done.

    Let's do better this week! :) We can do it!
