Gained on Purpose

That seven pound loss last week was amazing, but unsettling. Too much weight, at least I thought. So this week I ate more. I can’t say it bothered me to eat more to gain weight – for the first time in my life. I hoped for +/- two pounds and it ended up at 2.2 pounds up for the week. I weighted 180.8 this morning. Now I can back off and slowly get down to goal at 178. I’m in no rush to get to goal – I’m more in a rush to be healthy and feel good. By the beginning of this past week I felt “weak-ish,” like under fed or something and seven pound at 180 is a lot different than seven pounds at 240. The crappy weather isn’t a great help – if it were midsummer I probably wouldn’t have noticed. Oh well, but I’m feeling good about where I am.

Active, fun day ahead and work has be BUSY!

Have a great week!

You are right. 7 pounds is too much to lose in a week, and how much you can afford to lose is MUCH different at 180, than at 240.
If you were feeling weak and underfed at the end of the week, your body was probably trying to tell you that same thing. It is good that you are so intuned to the needs of your body, and yes, being HEALTHY is much more important than reaching a goal. Keep up the good work
