Ups and downs, teeter totter, roller coaster, peaks and valleys, highs and lows, loss and gain, the numbers go up and down all throughout the week. This is why many people only weigh themselves weekly, and if it would be discouraging to you to see that you can gain weight back in the week even though over-all you will come out of the week with a loss, then weighing in weekly is the best thing to do. However, I see it as a direct reflection of the day before. Last night, I ate pizza...today I weight 2 pounds more. It makes total sense, I haven't been eating much, I haven't been exercising at all, due to my being sick. So while I weigh myself daily, I know that the numbers will go up and then go back down.
It also reminds me, to think pizza may not be the best choice. Obviously, but why didn't I turn it down? Because every bad choice I make effects the outcome of the diet. I think of things like, if I didn't eat that, then I'd be that much closer to skinny. I know how life goes, there are parties, there are evenings, there are events. However, if I don't make the right choices for the majority of those events, then it will be harder for me to get to my destination. So I will continue to weigh in every day even though I will see the numbers go up and down. As long as my chart shows a continuing downward trend, then I can keep learning from my choices, and get to skinny!
I just look forward to being farther away from 200 so that my up and downs only start with the number 1. :o)
