Eat More To Weigh Less - Week 3 Weigh-In
Due to a few uncontrollable circumstances I had to eat out several nights this week. I tried to keep my sodium as low as possible, but in a few cases (wtf, Chili's?) it wasn't really possible. I had a bad feeling going into this weigh-in - not sure if TOM is visiting soon or what, but I've been feeling really hormonal and weird all week.
Sure enough, I was up almost 3 pounds: 158.0-160.8. Now the crazy psychological stuff will truly begin for me. First big weight gain plus moving up into a different set of scale numbers (seeing that '6' about gave me a heart attack). There is certainly some sodium bloat at work here, as well as some possible female issues - obviously I haven't eaten an extra 10,000+ calories this week. But the old me is screaming from the back of my brain "You need to immediately eat way less, get on the treadmill and get this under control!". It's hard not to panic when I have put so much work into this weight loss journey. Especially when the last few pounds have taken forever to come off.
I think this upcoming week might be a big turning point for me. I'm going to do my best to stay calm, stay on the path and trust that this is all going to work out for me in the long run.
