Health: Day 23

Day 23 is not a happy one...

My official weight gain from my indulgent weekend is 3.3 pounds.  3.3 pounds!!!

That's not egregious, but it's still more than what I expected.  I was hoping for only a 1-2 pound gain, at most.

This weekend taught me something valuable: I suck at estimating calories.  I really need to log my food choices so that I am sure to leverage more reliable estimates than those my brain offers.

Choices today were made with much more ease than over the weekend.  I was back in my normal environment with my normal food choices.  I greatly limited carbs today in hopes that I recover the 3.3 pound weight loss a bit faster.

I restrict my carbohydrates because all calories are not equal.  Check out this short article to learn more.

Even though it's frustrating to have to lose the same three pounds AGAIN, I continue to march on.    My goal of a 15 pound loss by Thanksgiving still stands.  And, more importantly, I need to just keep at it even when I fail.

Be open to what comes.
