Ugh, the Scale hasn't changed, even after nearly 3 years of going at it!

Friday, January 18, 2013

Sometimes it's nice that some things don't ever change, however, the scale is not one of them! A couple days ago, I posted about how I'm going to focus on getting down one more size and how weight does not really matter since I'm focusing on density and heightening my metabolism by toning and becoming stronger. The truth of the matter is that I still want to see the scale go down! What women doesn't? LOL Well I'm actually UP two pounds from this time last week... and it is impossible to gain that much muscle in that short of a period, but I am fully aware that when intensifying a workout regime that it's normal to gain before you lose. I just really hate seeing it actually happen, especially knowing that I have been doing everything right. And while I was prepared to see an increase in weight, it still sucks. Stupid scale... it's kinda like a bad relationship, you keep hoping and hoping for change, but the lousy bastard never lives up to your standards! emoticon I actually lost an inch from my waist since last week and my size 2s are getting a little loose again. So I know I'm making progress again, it's just that mental battle. This is incredibly familiar territory and I always warn all my.... hmm... well, people I give advice to about weight loss... about how the scale can play dirty, but I still want to punch something when it plays dirty with me. Ah, well I cannot expect to be the exception,now can I? That just would not be fair! Anyway, I'll keep holding myself accountable and reminding myself that soon I'll see that number go down! Hopefully by February I'll be down to 130 again or maybe even see the 120s again??!?!? But I shan't be greedy, an even 130 would be lovely! emoticon I'm off to workout and get my Friday junk done! Those four 10 hour days suck, but I sure do love my Fridays!

Ciao!

Lealah

    I agree with Barbara....ya hafta be careful what you wish for. My scale and I have an understanding....we hate each other. LOL Sorry that yours isn't budging, but happy to hear that your pants are a bit looser!

    I've had the same problem. Unfortunately, in 2012 the scale went up 5 pounds....not the direction I wanted!

    I know how hard it is when the scale isn't cooperative. But when that happens, I try hard to focus on all the non-scale victories. So what NSV's have you had today?

    I am experiencing similar pangs. I am within 3lbs of my next goal and I am killing myself for each lb. I keep on telling myself that conditioning is my goal this year and not weight loss. But, that darn scale is still there and the last few pounds are hanging in there. For me the pounds are the measurable component of the still unsightly bulges I see on my body. I know I cannot take the bulges on specifically so the remaining pounds are what I can attack.

Worse yet psychologically is that I would need to lose yet another 6 lbs to have a "normal" BMI. Deep down, I know that I will not be happy until I am "normal". So despite my success and good health I am driving myself on.

I do not have an answer to the question of when we should be happy. I know I spent so much of my life being happy with being fat and careless, that I am afraid if I do not focus hard on reaching all of my goals I am afraid that I will fall all the way off. Afraid that not reaching my goals completely will be a failure I will regret. Why is that these last 3-9lbs seem to overwhelm the fact that I am fitter and healthier than I have been in probably 35 years?

I am trying to setup physical goals this year that are not related to weight. Though not a runner, run a couple of 5Ks with a fellow weight loss friend, get back on a hockey team and play regularly, do a sprint triathlon this summer and do 5 pullups. The last challenge is so that I can get at least my HKC certification to become a kettlebell trainer.

I think those goals should get me off this cliff face where the scale is hanging above me threatening to knock me off. I think your goals of changing your body will do the same for you. You continued physical training should help you reshape your body. Once you get there, I think your body will tell you what weight it needs to be at to be healthy in you new fantastic body. Good luck.
