Ok, not a loss but after my week of sugar I’ll take it. I am getting frustrated with myself for not keeping it together this last week. It just makes me more determined for next weigh in. #weighinmonday#day91
I'm finding it pretty hard to get past this plateau, but I also know that a weekend bingeing on CheezeIts and cookies hasn't helped. We've all been there, though. "I worked my butt off this week so I 'deserve' to keep half of this pack of Oreos to myself." That's not how weightloss works, unfortunately. It's a minor setback and I'm not going to let one weekend affect my goals. All we can do in tough times is acknowledge when we let ourselves down, take note of the circumstances, and do better next time. It's a marathon, not a sprint.
Today I chose to attend my meeting and not weigh in.
Last week I only tracked 4/7 days and on Saturday I had my hubby’s birthday and ate and drank plenty!
I know in myself that I’ve had a gain but I also know my mindset this week can’t deal with the reality of the gain SO I chose not to face the scales but by attending the meeting I can reset and refocus for the week ahead! Also, still haven’t looked up the points for a Krispy Kreme 🙈 UPDATE: looked them up (couldn’t help myself) - 12SP & I ate 2!!!! 😱😤
💡SCALE & BODY WEIGHT💡
Did you weigh yourself today? How often do you? & Why!
My take on this 👇
Body weight number seems to be an important data to collect during your weight-management journey;
📈whether you’re trying to gain weight or,
📉SPECIALLY, when you’re trying to lose weight. 📌It is ONE of the SO many essential criteria to assess your progress with along with:
- The tape measurement, the progress pictures, clothes fitting, etc
BUT, it is something you can’t ignore‼️
⚠️The scale number should go down along the way of your weight loss journey.
⚠️The scale number should go up along the way of your weight gain journey.
BODY WEIGHT fluctuates easily, on the daily basis even, specially if you’re a female❗️
Thus, the key word above “ALONG THE WAY”‼️‼️‼️ ❌Never judge your progress by comparing your daily weight numbers.
📌Take the average of the week. Analyze your weight progress of every 10-15 days changes.
💡Here’s why having a coach helps #accountabilitycoach 📌Another issue is, it’s not always easy to look at these values in an objective way. And, that is human‼️ I only recently, after years of practice, developed an objective-scientific perception of the scale number! Takes practice ⚠️
📝So, every time i get on it, I let go of my emotions, expectation & feelings (as much as I can).
Look at the number, note it on my progress sheet & move on.
-> Some days, it’s easier said than done 🤞
So, how often should YOU weigh yourself❓
How strong are you with seeing fluctuations without it ruining your mood & motivation.
I’d put my clients on at least TWICE a week.
MONDAY & FRIDAY! Why? - Twice a week is somehow tolerable on the emotional side. Although, after each weigh-in, I do repeat all this info to them. Every single time 🤭☺️
- Most importantly, I chose SPECIFICALLY these 2 days for a reason:
📌My clients usually get off track during the weekend. ✏️Weighing-in on Friday is like a goal so they stick to the plan during the week. Having a goal/ a date is key🔐
✏️Then, it’s the weekend! BUT, they should keep the work going because there’s a weigh-in on Monday🤞 🔗 Scale number is not THE ONLY thing to focus on!
