Bouncing Back

Thank you all for your support yesterday.  The problem with gaining is that I have to balance what I know to be true rationally (big week before, hormones, etc) with the emotional response of seeing the scale go up.  Sometimes the emotional response is stronger and it takes a while to get the rational thought in control of things.

But I am proud to say that I've eaten within my daily points the last two days - I even saved a few to have a dessert while at dinner with some friends tonight.  I haven't been to the gym yet, but have plans to go tomorrow.

What I am proud of is that I haven't given up in the wake of a small gain.  I'm still on track, and I'm still tracking, and I hope that next week my body will have righted itself again.  And if not, well then I still keep on it.  I am doing what I'm supposed to so I'm going to give the program a chance to work.

I'm going to give myself a chance too.  That's the most important part.

I love this mentality. Finding Nemo said it best: Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.
