The Crazy Suburban Mom: What about that week in oh-nine when I gained point two pounds?

What about that week in oh-nine when I gained point two pounds?

I'm trying to learn new ways of thinking on Nutrisystem because truth be told, I'm my own worst enemy in the food department.  This week I worked on a few things but mostly how not to get bogged down on the weekly ups and downs of the scale.

A.   I will follow my plan until it's my lifestyle.
B.   I will follow my plan until I'm at a maintainable weight which makes me, my doctor, and my zippers happy. 
3.   I will remember that no one loses every week, no one.  (Absorb that one, Tracy)  There are pounds up weeks, pounds down weeks and those wild, crazy weeks when the scale moves in points of twos (or not at all).   

What is important is my downward trend in weight over time. 

D.   If I eat something that isn't on my plan, it was my choice; I wasn't bad.  Nutrisystem isn't my mommy. 

Someday soon I'll reach my goal and my zippers'll yell, Yahooo!  and throw confetti out the front of my pants.  That's when a friend I haven't seen in a long time will say, Wow!  You look great, how much weight have you lost?  

And I'll bat my eyelashes and hear my zippers snicker as I say, Oh a pound here and there!    My friend will say, That's wonderful!   And I'll say, Yeah - Feels great.

The thing is, it's the total loss that matters in the end.  I will not say, What about that week in oh-nine when I gained point two pounds? 

Three years from now that week will be long forgotten.  So today I promise myself not to get derailed on weeks when..... I did every thing right! How can that have happened? and gained four pounds. 

It happens.

Keep going. You can do it. I know it's hard, but stick to it.

I started The 17 Day Diet plan and have had good success, so far.

Good luck sister.

Go you, Tracy! 15 pounds in an incredible achievement (can you hear my applause?) I'm stuck in my last 10 pounds. It's always the last 10 that do me in. So close yet so far away... I am trying to live your philosophy right now where I don't pay attention too much to the gains. I know when it's going to be an "up" day on the scale. I just try to be a little more conscious of my choices on the following day. And you're so right. It fluctuates no matter what. It just does. Today my toes are so swollen they feel like sausages (eww, sorry). I know after a healthy amount of water ingestion some of this fluid will finally let go and my weight will head back downward again.

Sorry this is one long a$$ comment!
