164.4 (lowest in over 10 years!)
So this is one of the weeks where I actually want to do a Weigh-In post! Yay! That means I lost weight, obviously...
The challenges of blogging (staying accountable) when I am not losing? Hard to write an upbeat, cheery, encouraging post when you feel like crap. Hard to tell other people I messed up. Hard to face the fact that I am working to lose weight and I, in fact, have not. Those are the challenges.
But there are benefits. Posting when things aren't rosey (even if it's not a post complete with bathroom photo) reminds me that life is not always upbeat, cheery or encouraging, nor does it need to be. Telling other people that I have messed up keeps me grounded, reminds me that I am not the rock star I sometimes make myself out to be in my head. =] It lets other people know that they are not abnormal or alone. It represents the fact that even when I have not lost weight I am still, in fact, working at it. I have not given up.
I will never give up.
