This journey is hard and so emotional and I’m just so tired. I’ve fallen back into unhealthy habits and as a result it has set off my anxiety in a big way. I was going to skip Weight Watchers (again) this week but decided to just bite the bullet and get weighed and figure out how to keep moving forward. I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t even look at Brandy when I stepped on the scale. I asked her to just write my weight down in my booklet and give it back and not talk about it so I could just leave. She did as I asked, and then as I put my coat on she said, “ I feel like I need to tell you that your weight didn’t change. You basically maintained your same weight over two week period. You need to look at that as something to be proud of. Maintenance is just as hard as weight loss. But you maintained your weight over a two week period, and I feel like, in the past this would be the point where you might feel like you wanted to pack it in, and I want you to feel proud of yourself for coming in today. I get how hard it is. Be proud, Kate." When I got to my car I opened my booklet to see that I did go up another .4, but instead of beating myself up over it I let her encouragement sink in.
It’s a new day. I’m moving forward. I’m slower than a turtle walking through molasses, but I will keep moving forward. #weightwatchers #wwcanada #wwfreestyle #wwsisterhood
