So I am again frustrated, mostly because I have no patience whatsoever!!
I was very happy Monday after having a nice loss over the weekend and weighing in at SlimGenics 29.25 lbs down. Of course, I convinced myself that I would hit 30 lbs by my weigh-in today, because 1/2 lb a day has been the minimum loss I’ve been seeing. And of course, I did the plateau-breaker last week that was supposed to kick my weight loss into high gear again this week.
Apparently I got cocky. Forgot to recognize continually that this success is NOT something I’m obtaining on my own, and that I have to keep giving it to God. He is why I have been so successful so far; there is no way I could have lost 28 lbs in 7 weeks on my own; it’s because I keep praying and giving it to Him that I’ve come this far.
Soooo… I get on the scale Tuesday morning…. and I’m UP .2 lbs!! Now, .2 lbs isn’t very much and it does happen from time to time. Did I mention I have no patience?
Ok, no biggie. It and more will be gone today! I get on the scale this morning and the .2 lbs are gone, BUT NOTHING MORE!! WHAT?! How can I weigh the same thing on Wednesday morning as Monday morning when I’m supposed to be shedding weight like crazy because of last week’s plateau-breaker?
So I went to weigh in and at least I was down another 1/2 lb with them (probably had lighter clothes!!), bringing me to 29.75 lbs! SO CLOSE.
They are convinced that I’ll hit my 30 lb milestone on Friday, but I’m going to be doing some extra praying and handing my health over to God (again and again and again!!).
