my disappointment means I need to evaluate what I am doing

Utter disappointment so time to examine some things.
Last week I did end up jumping on the scales...I convinced myself that I needed a real marker for a starting place.
I weighted myself today and I am up 5 pounds.
So I have failed....again. time to figure out what I can do to improve!!!
In the last month I have eliminated pop, chips, white flour, ice cream in the house. I have watched portion sizes. I have started chewing gum when I want to nibble when I am in the kitchen.
On the weekend I did drink more juice than normal as we were away. I also had a hot chocolate at the arena. I will watch the liquid intake this week. For the most part I just drink water but on the weekend the water was horrible where we were staying.
I need to get more active and my house needs some works so I am thinking I will clean the house tonight. Maybe I can convince my husband to go for a walk at the beach when we go to town tomorrow.
I have to admit I have only included protein with my breakfasts half the days. So I should work on that.
my stress level has been very high for the last three or four years. I need to work on that. I tried yoga but all I could think about was that my stomach was in the way and my fear of farting during downward dog. Am I the only person on the planet who doesn't think yoga is relaxing. I also do not enjoy massage.
So the plan for the next week is to increase my activity and watch my liquid intake.
Hopefully I will see some progress.

    you are doing the right thing..it is okay to feel disappointed ...anyone and many of us have.. Some of just gave up in utter frustration..not me and you though...we keep keeping on..because to do anything else like giving up and that would the failure...It is good to take stock of what we are doing and haw can we do better..you will figure it out..drink more water..be more active is a good place to start..walking on the beach sounds lovely.. I am sadly landlocked in Kansas.
