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.
