So remember how I raved about that 2.5 pound weight loss yesterday??
Welll… I gained 2 of it back. Turns out why I didn’t feel good Thursday and woke up Friday feeling awful was because I was extremely dehydrated from sweating so much and being out in the heat all day.
So that 2.5 pounds I lost was water weight.
Usually this is the turning point where I’m like well, screw it. Apparently I’m meant to be this fat forever.
However, I didn’t let it happen like that this time.
I talked myself down reassuring myself it was okay and it’s no reason to just give up like that on myself.
Now with a busy day today, I wasn’t able to eat much and what I could eat really wasn’t the best, but I stayed as close as I could to my plan and really watched portions.
Plus, I was super active too. With running, biking and then swimming for about 3 hours.
I made sure I drank more water today and stayed cool. I felt okay and even though it was super hot, I didn’t get myself so sick or run around in the heat to constantly sweat and get ill.
To answer your question that I’m sure you have, yes- I could be doing better. However, I could be doing a whole lot worse as well.
I even turned down alcohol tonight which is a HUGE win for me.
I will eventually reach my goals. I know this isn’t going to be as fast as I want it to be. I can’t keep giving up on myself and get super depressed when things don’t go my way.
I CAN and WILL do this.
I really love all of your encouragement and push for me to keep going. It truly does help.
I will struggle at times…
Please continue with your words of encouragement it really does mean the world.
