July was ROUGH!
Tuesday, July 31, 2018
So basically I got down to 219 lbs this month! However, I noticed that my analog portion of my scale (the one from Vanity Planet that everyone raves about!) wasn't aligning with what was output on the digital portion. SO - I reordered a new one. I stepped onto it and it read 222 lbs!
I then stepped on my old scale and it read 219 lbs!
So I've been over 221 lbs for this entire month and don't even know if I can count on the 219 reading. *major eye roll*. I'm trying my best not to obsess over that 2 lbs, but you all know how it is when you're on point and then it's like it never happened? Or even worse - taken away!! UGH.
So I've just been continuing my healthy eating and staying active, watching the scale fluctuate from 222 lbs to 220 lbs for the last two weeks. Hopefully this change in my diet (going to try low carb) will help push me back into losing more frequently. I'm 6 months into my journey and having only lost 33 lbs is a little discouraging when you see others losing 50 + lbs! HOW!? lol
I went camping last weekend and brought my food scale and a journal to track EVERYTHING I ate. It really helped me stay on track. I left at 221 lbs on Thursday, and returned home Sunday at 222.8 lbs. Today (Tuesday) I'm 221 lbs again, so YAY! I am not retaining any water weight. Not to mention I worked my butt off on Monday since I didn't work out during my camping trip. Got an entire body workout! I'm just hoping these small tweeks will help me get over this hump. How do people lose weight continuously each week? It's like I don't lose anything for two weeks and then suddenly I lose 3 lbs!? I want to see it EACH week, darnit. lol
Thank you for reading my blog. I appreciate your kind words and thoughts.
