Disappointed, But Not Too Depressed

So at the end of my second week, my weigh-in revealed a gain of 0.4 lbs. It wasn't a total shock, I mean, I knew a gain was a possibility - but I had hoped it was a small one. When the "weigher-inner" told me that this week I was "at 0.4", I thought it was a loss of 0.4, and nodded my head - thinking "Whew! I dodged a bullet there!"

I didn't dodge the bullet. When I sat down and looked at my booklet, I was informed that the 0.4 was a GAIN. I was bummed, but I thought "I deserved it." Not the most encouraging thought-process, I know.

But what's interested is I came out of the meeting with a resolve that I haven't felt at all this week. My first week's drastic loss of 5.2 lbs. left me sort of cocky for the week. I thought that because I only really spent half that first week officially "on program", that I could splurge a little more than I should have this week. Those thoughts crawled up and I caved very easily to cravings.

This week, I plan to resist those urges to overeat as much as I can. I'm not going to beat myself up too badly for my weight gain this week. Because this week is over, and a new one has officially begun.

This whole weight-loss thing is definitely a process of trial and error, of trying to strike a balance. I know that you can succeed at this :). (P.S. I'm a fellow WWtweeter!)
