Fears about a weight gain

My first official weigh in after vacation happened this past weekend.  I was showing up 2 pounds exactly.   I had hoped for better!  I had wanted a maintain.  Yet I was ok with the gain.    I knew going in that I was going to live my life and not focus on my food.  I still chose healthy options at times....but I also choose some unhealthy options at times.   I was completely satisfied with my food choices. 

So while I am ok with my weight after vacation....I still find myself panicking.   I go back to the first official post vacation weigh in shortly after I reached my goal weight.   It is the vacation where I started my backwards slide!   Yeah, this one.....  I know it’s not the same....but my mind goes there....what if I never recover?  What if I never lose the weight and start regaining?  What if I end up back at 330 pounds?

I am eating right....and we did go out for a ride this past weekend and I have started walking on my lunch break again this week (ok yesterday...but it’s a start)




I know...my fears are silly...but my weight is just not dropping quickly...but it hasn’t this time around.  It seems as if I drop a half pound then maintain for a week or two and then drop another half pound.   It’s still progress but it is slooooow!

So that is where I am at!  Worried...panicked....just plodding along and staying on track for this weight loss journey!

The downward trend seems to go much slower than the upward. I understand the fear, but you're doing everything right.

Have you had a recent check-up? Thyroid?

Maybe increase the speed and distance of your daily walk....?

I think the key word here is "satisfied" and who said changing one habbits is easy. I was pretty much at a standstill for sometime. This week I broke the bearier.

These plateaus can be so frustrating, but eventually, as my leader says, "The check is in the mail."

I loved your blog. I want to make a contribution to your awesome blog with my experience. Being overweight was my nightmare until I discovered Cinderella Solution. It was a miracle for me. You should watch and decide for yourself. https://bit.ly/2MjiMlx

So. I'm with you on the turtle weight loss thing. But as Sarah said it goes on a lot quicker than it comes off. One day at a time. I remember faintly certain moments in my life in the last few months where I felt so umm hopeless isn't the right word. Umm overwhelmed? Underwhelmed? Feeling like that point was going to last forever. Then something would happen and everything would continue on. I cannot find words for it. The guess the best way to sum it up is with that old saying of this too shall pass.
