Happy new year! I missed weeks 15 and 16, but Im here and being accountable now. I am up 1.4 unfortunately. The first time during this challenge I have had to report a gain.
But a few things...I know why I am up. New years eve was a blast, but I definitely indulged in a few things I shouldnt have, namely popcorn, cheese and crackers, reuben dip, and alcohol. So I know that is why I am up and it is completely my own fault. In a way, thats a nice feeling, to be able to not wonder, why am I up? I know why I am and now I can make changes to ensure that is as high up as I am going to get. It does suck that I seem to be moving further away from the 170s, but I know that I can get back there after a week or 2 of clean eating and journaling again. If I had followed my plan to a T and gained, I would be upset and frustrated. And while I am not happy that I am up, I also know that this will go down by following what I know. Plus TOM is here and Im sure that doesnt help matters at all. Definitely retaining a lot of water.
But this year on New years, I felt great and knew that I looked great too. This year I was definitely not disapointed in my picture!
