I put off writing this post for five days because I got frustrated.
I thought I was doing things right and was sure I would lose weigh.
But I gained a pound. Last week was an anomaly. I ate out a bunch and was very sedentary because I was very busy with work stuff. This week has been a little different, I've been eating at home more, I exercised a couple times (which felt great). and I've had a more regular work-day. However, I can feel my appetite starting to come back. I've got to watch out for that.
This weigh-in taught me that even though being on Concerta is controlling my appetite, I'm still not going to lose weight unless I work to buck my bad eating habits and get out and exercise on a regular basis.
I'm feeling less confident than I was last week, but as long as I take away the idea that my meds won't make me skinny by themselves and maintain the idea that I CAN make the changes I need, I'll be fine.
Here's to making changes!
