I know I really shouldn't be complaining. I have lost 7 1/2 pounds since starting over. But this past week the scale hasn't moved and it is incredibly frustrating.
I have tracked all my food, I have stayed within my calorie range, I have exercised and nothing, not even 1/2 a pound. It's days like this that I get so discouraged and wonder if it's even worth the fight.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up. I just need to vent and I promised I would be honest. I wouldn't be being honest with you or myself if I didn't admit how hard this is sometimes.

After the frustration of this morning's weigh-in I was determined not to let my disappointment affect my choices today. In the past it has been my downfall. Having a bad weigh-in would almost always lead to a binge.
Not today, today I made solid choices. I had soup for lunch and a smart, healthy afternoon snack. I saved the bulk of my calories for this evening. I had Bunco at a friend's house and I was pretty certain there would be something tempting to eat; and I was right. My dear friend made Apple Dumplings for dessert and I was able to indulge.
I'm so proud of myself for not losing control. I can go to sleep tonight with no regrets on my mind.
