I am participating in a biggest loser contest at my workplace. I have been tracking my eating and exercising and I had even increased my exercise minutes this week. I just knew I was in for more than a one pound weight-loss this week. I was in for something alright, but it was a weight gain instead of loss. I ended up gaining 1.75 lbs. I was so surprised. My husband and I were talking just this morning that he hasn't seen me work this hard with exercising and watcing what I eat in a long time. So it was a huge disappointment when I stepped on the scales. I felt like I had just taken two steps back.
This is so frustrating. I am not giving up by any means because I don't want to go back to where I started from or even heavier. I am learning that I am an emotional eater and so it is taking all of my willpower today not to fall back into that habit. I am trying to think of it as I am starting a new week again and will try to just keep on keeping on and hopefully down the road I will see the payoff.
