Last week I mentioned my conscious decision to go off the plan while on vacation. That was a total of 9 days from 12/24 through 1/1. My intentions were to get right back on the plan when I returned to work on 1/2. The question is did I do it?
Yes I accomplished my goal. On Wednesday 1/2 I got right back on the plan and have not swayed since. It wasn’t even a hard thing to do. My mind was set that I needed to get back on plan and I just decided it was time.
I learned that I can go off the plan and get right back on. This is a major thing for me. In the past I would follow a weight loss plan and even when I made a decision to eat something off the plan I would feel guilty. Then I would eat more. Then I would promise to get back on the next day and half way through the day would eat something I shouldn’t. I felt like eating anything off plan was opening the flood gates to eat whatever I want and I doomed myself with that action.
I did not experience any of that this past week and I was amazed and excited like I have taken a giant step. When I made the decision to “go off plan” on 12/24 I also told myself to NOT FEEL GUILTY (which is usually easily said then done). I was originally going to go back on it after Christmas but with everything going on I decided to just go ahead and go off until I went back to work. I didn’t feel guilty at all during that week. I also didn’t eat TONS of food each day. The food I was eating was not healthy but I was getting up late and eating a meal around 10-11, maybe a snack, and then early late dinner. So I was eating less meals. So I wasn’t sure what to expect on the scale last week, and also made the decision NOT to weigh.
I told myself before I stepped on the scale it didn’t matter. I had already made a huge step and turning point in my weight loss journey by being able to splurge guilt free and get right back on it. So with that thought in mind I stepped on the scale….what I found was quite surprising. My previous weight recorded at the end of week three was 168.4, skipping week four I was hoping to have gotten back to the 168.4 or very close. Assuming I had gained some weight over my “splurge week”. I was not prepared for what I saw!
165 a weight loss of 3.4 lbs!
Starting Weight: 180.6
Week One Weight: 172.8
Week Two Weight: 170.8
Week Three Weight: 168.4
Week Four & Fuve Weight: 165.0
Total Weight Loss: 15.6 lbs
I didn’t think I would enjoy this soup but I added a little green onion and it was amazing. Unfortunately my order was already placed and I will have to wait until next month to order it but it is on my list for sure!
