I didn't want to weigh in today. But I did it anyway.
I wanted to wait until Saturday, give myself a few extra days to get a lower number.
But, I knew if I gave into my excuses...I'd do it every time. I realized that maybe the number wouldn't be what I wanted today, but at least I was being consistent and holding myself accountable.
I was in fact down. (Barely.) But I worked hard to shed those 3+ pounds I gained in the beginning of the week. Today I was at 171.4.
Still dancing around the 70's.
I'm sick of the 70's!
But I'm thankful I was down the 0.6 after the week I've had.
Truthfully, I'm thankful I'm down the 31 pounds I am after the summer I have had! It's been hard. Probably the hardest summer I've had. It's been stressful, it's been emotional, it's been exhausting, it's been lonely. All of those reasons in the past were reasons I would give up. All of those reasons were reasons I would put off my weight loss.
But I'm done making excuses! I'm done with not being the person I have the potential to be. Life is too short to put anything off, even for a day.
