The opposite of Progress.
I've been cruising along lately and have had no major setbacks on my quest to get down to 220 pounds.
I've done quite well over the last year doing this my way and not worrying about "cheating" or anything like that. I've had bad days and I've had bad weeks but I always right the path after I've gotten it out of my system.
Since my first visit to the dentists office last week where we started my work I have now gained back 5 pounds.
Ugh, that sucks.
This is the biggest gain I have had since I started changing the way I'm eating. 5 pounds is at least 2 weeks worth of progress and quite an annoying setback.
It also might not be the end of it all since I'm still getting more work done and currently cannot eat tasty solids. I've been living mostly off Mashed Potatoes and Chicken Noodle Soup which appears to be an unhealthy way to go.
I cannot wait for the day when I can eat my salad every day again, when I can snack on my fruits and veggies and have a sensible meal for dinner and see results. See this weight come off instead of watch the scale slowly climb back in the other direction.
This really bugs the shit out of me, which in all honesty never happened in the past.
Previously if I were to lose weight for whatever reason, I never thought twice about the weight going back on after I gave up on my diet and/or exercise. This time it's different. I constantly monitor myself for changes. I have been taking pride in my results and going backwards hurts my pride a bit.
I was looking forward to getting down to my goal before Summer hit.
I was looking forward to bragging about hitting that benchmark that I set for myself before visitors started coming into town.
Now here I am adding some back on to make it that much harder to achieve my goal.
Screw you bad teeth. Just heal and get it over with so that I can start eating properly again and start taking this excess weight off again.
In other news it appears as though I had an attack of the Spam last night.
I just went through and deleted 7 comments posted on various entries of mine and pretty much all of them dealt with payday loans. WTF?
Oh well. This doesn't happen very often so I'll just let it slide.
