I’ve been off the wagon for nearly a week now in my weight loss efforts, and I can definitely tell. I haven’t gained much weight, and I definitely haven’t lost any.
I was starting to get a little concerned. I know I’ve been busy, but I’ve also been lazy – not tracking, and no real exercise. Last night I even went home and took a nap after work, then grazed the rest of the night.
I logged in to SparkPeople this morning and I see that a couple of friends are doing really well – one lost 5 lbs this week (her first week) and the other lost 4 lbs. I am so proud of them!
And also really jealous. The friend who lost 4 lbs has now lost a total of 17 lbs in the past 5 weeks. I’ve only lost 21 lbs in the past 2.5 months.
I know, I know. It’s different for everyone. Some people lose weight faster than others. The thing is, I thought I was doing terrific until I compared myself to her, and now I just feel fat and lazy (and yeah, if you’re reading this M, this is not YOU, it’s ME!).
There are some other circumstances coming into play that I will write about later. I just wanted to get this out of my head.
