*Sigh* Had a horrible week... Don't know what came over me.

As of Monday I had broken into a new bracket on my scale. I was feeling proud! So what did I do? Eat, and eat, and eat.. Why? Why do that to myself? So silly. I knew what I was doing wasn't helping.

This morning I finally stepped back on the scale... I am no longer in my new bracket. *sigh*

It's okay. I can get back there. I keep reminding myself that this is a normal minor setback that we all do from time to time. I'm bummed that I weigh more now than when I weighed into my bets but am still proud of me. I am still down from where I started 6 months ago. My towel still can wrap around me, I can still wear my "smaller jeans" it's okay. The reality is, this is how weight loss goes. It's not a constant decrease in weight. It fluctuates.  

I won't give up, I will continue to learn how to make better choices, and live a healthier life. I love me and I deserve all of this, as do you. It's okay if we slip up from time to time.

"You're not defeated when you lose, you're defeated when you quit"

I'm not quitting!

Don't quit!
