I am truly impressed at all you've accomplished while sick (but even if you weren't as well)!! You really should be proud of yourself. Hope you feel better!

I love the name "El Diablo." lol. It sounds like you're making good progress - 2 lbs in a week certainly isn't bad! And bodybuilding is definitely going to add on heavier muscle. I think your non-scale victories are incredible! It's frustrating for sure, but you can also think of it as a building process - if this week you lost 2 lbs. nailing your eating, maybe hitting your step goal on top of that will push you where need to be, and so on. Don't give up! You're doing so great :)

Two days is a good allowance - I have the same issue, falling off the wagon after I let myself get sedentary. Unplanned rest days always feel like a failure, but sometimes it's just telling our bodies they need to reset. As long as you get up and move on day 3... So proud that you avoided the hamburger! I swore off fast food in 2015, and continued it on to this year... haven't had McDonald's in so long, but I can tell you it doesn't stop that little voice ;) Enjoy your victories, and the weekend - you can do well if you commit to it :)

I am 250 pounds and I know the complacency. I never really thought I was fat. I gained due to medical issues and didn't realize I wasn't ok. My husband was still attracted to me, people still flirted and said I was cute. So hey, it's ok. But I was getting the signs from my health professionals. I have 4 herniated disks and my doctor doesn't want to do surgery until I am thinner, and older. I was in pain, but mainly the pain is coming from the weight, that hurt when I worked out. Huh? There's a vicious circle. So no more excuses and just work. So when I hit the 198 I will be happier, but still not satisfied because we deserve more out of life.

I think we're all our own worst enemies. You are certainly not alone in that. It's easy to rationalize what we "deserve," but you are so right - deserve what? To poison our bodies and cause problems for ourselves. It's so much harder to recognize enablers when they're right there in the mirror... That being said, recognizing it is the first step! The rest will come with persistence.
