I'm huge on analysing
myself things pretty much anything that interests me. So I want to figure out WHY I lost momentum. What was different last month?
A) Return to weekly weigh-in: Is it possible that going back to weekly weigh-in assisted in this? At first I didn't think of it because before February I had lost weight just fine with my weekly weigh-ins and felt motivated each week by my weigh-in. BUT In February I believed in myself and the process and when I had ONE bad day it never turned into a week, it was just one day. In March I noticed myself giving up half-way through the week and feeling bad all week until it was over and I had another one to start "fresh".
Oh man, this opens my eyes to something else. I've been giving myself excuses! "You already ruined your week Megan, might as well take advantage before you get back on track next week". WHAT!?!?
This is just the kind of shit that got me here in the first place.
What does this show me?
- I need to get back to basics
- I still have a lot to learn
- This journey will carry on much longer than just getting to a goal weight
I am not going to go back to a monthly weigh-in right now because I don't think that the frequency that I weigh-in should affect my weight-loss if I'm doing things right. I will stay weekly, BUT I am now aware that I have been doing these things and have the power to take that knowledge, and change those bad habits, one at a time!
