When I started blogging about my weight loss journey, I promised to do so openly and honestly. And that includes sharing when things don’t quite go to plan.
This week, I had a weight GAIN.
Yep, despite having a wee beforehand (sorry, tmi) wearing my regular weigh-in clothes, removing sunglasses and mobile phone and stepping tentatively on the scales – the numbers told the truth. (Whaaat – you don’t do the same things before weighing in? It’s a weekly ritual! )
I had gain. A stinking 1/2 lb gain.
What I found hardest about this gain, was that I was not expecting it. If I’d had a reckless week, or even a night out, I would have understood – and accepted it.
Clearly, the scales were wrong.
Actually, er, no, they’re always right. Too flipping’ right some weeks.
So, I grabbed my book and headed back to the car to sulk.
On the way, I stopped in the sunshine to phone Hubby and let him know I was going to be heading home early, but before I could finish telling him, I realised I needed to stay. I needed to understand WHY I had gained weight. So, I turned around and went back in.
Even though I was certain I’d been good all week, my Consultant gave me a ‘Daily SAS Log’ to take home and complete. And I will – because I trust her 100% when it comes to my weight loss. After all, what better way is there to learn than from someone who has walked these very same steps before you?

Oh, and it was totally worth me going back to class. Not only did I come out all motivated (and not miserable at my weight gain), but, I also won the weekly raffle. All the ingredients to make a delicious and healthy dish. Woo Hoo! Watch out for a tasty new quinoa recipe coming up on the blog real soon!
Anyway, I hope your Monday is off to a great start, and I raise my cup o’(sugar-free) coffee to you. Keep fighting the powers that be!
