Who knows?

Thursday, October 28, 2010

I had decided to weigh myself every other Tue on my school's weight room scale. But after getting caught in a downpour on my way there, I found the door locked. I could have checked with somebody. I SHOULD have checked with somebody. But I reasoned that because I needed to study more before my class, I didn't have time.

So, it's been two weeks since I last weighed and I don't know what my current weight is. I think I didn't really want to know. I have mixed feelings about having that knowledge. If I thought I had been doing really well on my food plan and getting good, frequent exercise, maybe I would have been more excited to find out my weight. But I've been struggling with stressful situations and so haven't been doing as well as I would like. The pants I wore yesterday seemer tighter than last time, and I just noticed that the zipper had pulled its stitching out right at the biggest part of my tummy - did that just happen, or was it that way before?

I love to find out when I've lost weight, but then I find it harder to keep the momentum going. So, maybe my original plan to weigh about once a month may have been a good idea. I don't know.

    Sometimes I weight myself everyday, just to keep myself in check! Espcially if I go over my calorie limit...I just want to see the damage. Weighing is a thing I like to do even if I gain, that way if I do-- it inspires me to get back at it! Plus keeping track of your inches really helps. That way if the scale hasn't budged in a little while the inches lost will tell you! I had that happen last month, while on vacation I gained a 4 lb., then it took two weeks to lose another pound, plus the weight I'd gained...then I took my measurements and had lost 4 1/2 inches-so that made me feel really great!! So, keep going, your body is going to lose as long as you keep it up and don't give up!!! Connie

    I've not been good about weighing myself. My main focus has been tracking my foods to become more conscious about where all my caloric intake is coming from; and tracking my exercise with becoming more conscious about what exercise I've been avoiding and developing schedule of exercise that works best for me.

    I need to weigh myself every day to stay on track. If I see I have gained then I try to correct right away. If I didn't weight myself for a month I probably wouldn't do as well. I can also tell by the way my clothes fit. If your pants are feeling tighter, then you probably have gained.

    I always say Scales are of the DEVIL!! LOL having said that, you know when you are doing good and bad so you kind of know what your weight will be. Also, it's a full moon, I never weigh in a full moon because of the water weight that occurs during that time. We are the same percent solids and liquids that the earth is and the moon does that to the earth too.

    Anyway, hope things go ok this next week for you!

    Seems as if you already know your answer about if you did or did not lose weight. Ask yourself WHY you lose momentum? Is the idea that your not losing weight what causes you to slack off, or does it push you to exercise as scheduled and eat clean?

    You say it is harder to keep momentum if your not losing, but if your not following the plan by not eating right and not exercising then you need to get the motivation to do what is necessary!
