Weekly Weigh-In: Up 1 Pound, But Refocused On Next Goal

Weekly Weigh In feb 2014Despite fears that I’d over indulged, I ended the week 1 pound up. I finished the week strong by eating right, ridding myself of those sugar cravings and feeling better than I have in weeks.

For these last couple of weeks, I’ve felt out of sorts. Although I think the Paleo recipes I used possibly triggered some sugar cravings (more on that in an upcoming post), I don’t believe the diet made me sluggish. As I mentioned, except for eating “clean” foods, the diet is pretty much how I eat regularly.

Sure, I worked out (knee permitting), but I wasn’t as active at home. While I tried to focus on my next goal – losing 20+ pounds to finally weigh below 200, something just wasn’t clicking. The energy and excitement were missing.

I think it has to do with losing 100+ pounds. I’ve been so fixated on that number that it’s almost as if my brain decided it was time to take a vacation. By immediately switching gears and focusing on that next goal, I muted my celebration. My reward for crossing the century mark is a day spa trip in March. After two years on this journey, that spa will be a great way to recharge my batteries for the final push to reaching my goal.

Maybe I need to schedule my next reward ahead of such an important milestone, instead of a month after. Mental wellness is key in any weight loss journey.

The good news is I’m focused now and I won’t make the same mistake when I hit my next goal.
