Stupid scale!

Friday, July 06, 2012

So yesterday I was happy to announce that I was happily in the 150's, but this morning as I weighed myself I was so disappointed and frustrated to see that my weight had gone up overnight 3 whole pounds! SO ANNOYING! I know it's only temporary but I never wanted to see that number on the scale again. It's especially annoying when you know you're doing everything right and staying within your calories and your body decides to ignore all that. I know that I sound ridiculous right now, but I haven't been feeling myself the past few days. I've been really irritable and restless and it just frustrates me when the scale won't co-operate.

Oh well. The best thing I can do right now is go to bed and have a nice, long sleep. Tomorrow is a new day! Hopefully I'll be back in the 150's again and that I won't be feeling restless and irritable anymore.

    It would sure be nice if we reached a lower weight and never went above it but that's just not the way it works so we must stay positive and realize our weight will fluctuate, sometimes for no reason we can understand. -- Lou

    I know the feeling! It's definitely been frustrating...I've been dealing with the same thing everyday. Just remember your body weight fluctuates throughout the day and based on what you eat, and your salt intake.

    I'm sorry.
I do often weigh myself every day, but I don't let a loss "count" in my mind till it sticks for three days. Crazy? I dunno, it works for me. It keeps me motivated to work until a loss "sticks."

    Have you thought about not weighing yourself every day? If I do, it drives me crazy lol I try not to hinge my emotions on the numbers of the scale bc they will fluctuate as surely as that scale
You're doing such a great job and you're doing great things for your body and your health...stay positive!

Daily inspiration: Maximize your efforts - maximize your results!

Wednesday, July 04, 2012



This speaks volumes to me right now. I know that if I want great results, I need to put more effort into it.

Today I met both goals I set for myself. I tracked my meals and stayed within my calorie range and also went for a walk and biked to work and back. Small steps, but they're all steps forward!

Happy 4th of July to all of you my American SparkFriends! I hope you have a great and fun day with your friends and family :)

Confessions...

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

I haven't been doing as well as I could have the next couple of weeks. I've been tracking my meals on most days and stayed within my calorie range most of the time, but I haven't been eating as healthy as I'd like. I've gone for walks, but I haven't really been working out as hard as I could and should have. I've been slipping and making dumb choices. I haven't lost or gained any weight in two weeks or so, and I think it's time I start working hard towards my goals again.

It's July, and this month I'm really going to be focusing on staying within my calorie range and getting enough fruits and veggies a day. I'll go for a long walk/jog/bike ride every day and just eat right and exercise like I know I want to! I know how good it makes me feel when I meet my goals consistently and keep taking steps towards the future I want.

I'll start a short 14-day streak. I'll set two simple goals for myself and track them for two weeks. If I meet my goals every day, I'll reward myself for a job well done. My goals are (as stated above): 1) Go for a walk/jog/bike ride every day AND 2) Stay within my calorie range and track my meals every day. I'm sure this streak will keep me focused and motivated and give me the kick that I need to get my act together again! I WANT TO GET OUT OF THE 160'S ALREADY! :)

On a whole different note, I'm starting a new job tomorrow! I'm now done with the internship at the hotel and I'm now going to start a summer job at an art museum. I'm excited!! I don't know what to wear to work though... It's my first day and I want to make a good impression, but then again I don't want to look over-dressed either. I'll figure something out!

    The site just ate my rely. What I wanted to point out is that it is difficult for any of us to go full speed all the time. Sometimes our bodies and our minds need to rest and regenerate new energy that will allow us to once again go full out toward our goals. I'm confident you will be in the 150s soon. Stay focused and positive. emoticon -- Lou

    Great goals, and they're easy enough to achieve without trying to do everything at once! I think I'll take up these goals right along with you. :) A short two-week streak is just what I need. And when I reach it, I'll reward myself! And set me up some more goals. Great idea! And other commenters are right--even though you're not as happy with your routine as you'd like to be, you haven't gained anything. :)

    We all have our ups and downs...we are all human. You haven't gained anything, and even if you had tomorrow is a new day. You've got this! Congrats on the new job!
