vacation weight loss challenge: week 8

vacation weight loss challenge (2)
Over the past few weeks my mindset has shifted from “lose weight” to “get healthy”. I’ve been struggling a lot with some mental health stuff that’s taking its’ toll on all aspects of daily life – my relationships, my functionality, my ability to mom and, yes, my weight loss goals. And then the cycle starts; mental health decline > non functionality > weight loss self sabotage (i.e, binge eating) > more mental health decline > less functionality > more weight loss self sabotage….and on and on and on.

It has to stop somewhere and I know that getting my mental health in check is the best way to not only meet my weight loss goals but to get back to being a functional mother, wife and person.

Let’s check in.

ME
bust inches lost: 0
waist inches lost: 0
hip inches lost: 0
thigh inches lost: 0
weight lost: +1.7 lbs

KRISTIN
bust inches lost: 0
waist inches lost: 0
hip inches lost: 0
thigh inches lost: 0
weight lost: +1.4 lbs

MOM
bust inches lost: 0
waist inches lost: 0
hip inches lost: 0
thigh inches lost: 0
weight lost: +0.2 lb

 

Like I said, I’ve been bouncing around so I’m not surprised at my number. Kristin had a late night the night before weigh in and admitted to eating two Take 5 bars, a bunch of popcorn and a few handfuls of chocolate covered peanuts so I’m not surprised by her fluctuation either. And as for Mom, this is the first time she’s recording a small bounce up in weight the entire challenge but, honestly, I wouldn’t even count it as any “real” fluctuation.

Two weeks and one day til we all leave for the beach. Maybe I can get my act together and get in the zone before then. Or maybe not. I’m surprised at how little stress that mindset is causing me. Maybe my mental health is on the rebound already. 🙂
