Different Thoughts 1

Sunday, March 11, 2018

Nothing makes me more insane than sticking to the plan -and gaining weight- when I desperately need to lose over 50 pounds. So I am taking a look at things and asking myself,, "What do I need to change to accomplish my goals?" The little voice in the back of my head reminds me that I do rather well at any task when I make it an obsession.

Everyone tells me to throw the scales out the window. However, this only weighing in once a month thing is NOT working for me. I lost a lot of weight once before when I did a daily weigh in, determined to make those numbers go down.

My doctor once reminded me that I am "not a toaster." What works for someone else may not be the right thing for me. So, at least temporarily, I need to focus. No, I didn't gain back all the weight I lost in January, but I did gain back 5 pounds... while exercising and trying to choose "healthy" foods.

So now I am going to swing the opposite direction and try stepping on the scales every single morning.

I drink one cup of coffee after I wake and then nothing but water the rest of the day (sometimes with a squeeze of lemon.) I know it's not that I'm drinking the extra calories. Maybe the gain really is increased muscle mass. If that's the case, I should start dropping pounds again soon.

Little voice also whispers, "Maybe you are eating too much salt. Maybe the gain is water retention." So I think maybe I should pay a wee bit more attention to salt intake.I will eventually figure this out and solve the problem.
