I may have lost this battle but I must win the war.

Thursday, May 20, 2010

The last few days I have been feeling fat. I haven't felt this way for a very long time.. usually I feel smaller and strong. I know I tend to feel healthier when I exercise enough, eat correctly, and strength train. Last week I was at my parents from Thursday to Monday and sometimes it just isn't possible to do even when I try my hardest.

Anyhow, today was my weigh in and it was time to see if what I was feeling and what I actually weighed measured up.. it turns out I gained a pound so I guess it does measure up. I don't know if I can really be that upset that I gained a pound when all my other weigh ins since I started the 100 day challenge is I have lost 2-4# - how can I be upset about that?

The good news? I think by not weighing in all the time, I am learning to feel when I gained weight. Maybe eventually when I reach my goal weight I can wean myself off the scale.. how great would that be?

Goals for the next weigh in (in 10 days):
-Write down what I eat when I am at my parents even if I don't put it in
-Strength train 3x
-Elliptical 3x
-Stairs one day

I can do it.. I have to.

    It's always great to have a plan like someone just told me today "we don't plan to fail but we may fail to plan!" Great job on your losses so far and I know a pound can be discouraging but over the long run it's really not so much. I was very discouraged because last week I gained a pound but now I weighed myself this morning and was down that pound plus an additional 1.5 so now I feel back in the game :0) So often I think it may be just any change from our routine can throw in that plus one and a couple days of working out and drinking a lot of water and it's gone again! You are doing so great girl and you got this!!
    PS I always weigh in on Fri morning that way if I eat a little too much over the weekend or slack in exercise I have all week to make up for it emoticon

    Thanks girls.. I think I am going to have the rule to not weigh in right after a weekend but rather right before! Haha.

    Sometimes I go up a pound, too. It just might have been the weekend. But stay the course...you can do it....the scale is not our master but our aid. Journal and exercise...and think good thoughts...positive thoughts! Remember, everyone is cheering you on! emoticon Sharon
