Hmmmmm...Why is the scale screwing with me?!?!?

Wednesday, February 11, 2009 I have a weigh in schedule establshed. I weigh in every 10 days, instead of weekly. My goal over those ten ays is 2.5 pounds, not unreasonable! So, I have fallen off the nutritional wago a couple times, but i have stayed in my calorie range! I am also kicked butt with the exercise....My clothes feel better, I am less winded during cardio and my back aches have lessened......

WELL.......... Let me tell you what my punk ass scale said to me yesterday... I get up at 4 a.m. for my gym run. It's my weigh in day, so I strip climb on the scare and scream!!! I have GAINED 2.5 POUNDS! I curse, move the scale around to different areas of the bathroom floor (must be off balance), climb aboard and get the same freaking number!
I was discouraged..I started to pull my pj's back on, climb in the bed and feel sorry for myself...I didnt. I got my butt up, cursed all the way to the gym and worked my butt off.

When i got off work yesterday afternoon, went for a walk...I gave myself a peptalk and decided that I cant give up. Knowing that i had lost some inches helped a great deal.

This morning, I woke up feeling pretty positive, so I stripped, cimbed on the scale and held my breath... To my surprise, I was 3.5 pounds less than I was yesterday!?!?!?! Of course, I moved the scale around the bathroom (because it had to be wrong), and it didnt change.

Maybe I was bloated, I dont know what it is.... I honestly believe that my scale is screwing with me. emoticon

I tell you what, that sucker is not going to win! I've started telling him (my scale has to be a man), GAME ON, SUCKER, every time I go in the bathroom.
GAME ON!!!!!!!

    first off- good job on not crawling back into bed when you had your initial bad weigh in. that is huge that you did not get discouraged and give up.

second- this made me laugh because i have been there with my stupid scale too! i take the number on the scale with a grain of salt because it can be totally wacky sometimes. especially when you have been exercising due to the increase of muscle mass.

sounds like you are doing great! keep up all the great work!

    Has my scale found a way to get over to your house??? Because it sounds like we have the same exact scale. I've eaten a good diet this week..even on the days I did cheat they were TINY cheats..literally a taste of something and I ALWAYS included it in my food log. I'm working out like a horse..but I gained THREE pounds. I am hoping it's period weight. I better see a result next week. emoticon

2/2/09 I got my nails done!!

Monday, February 02, 2009

emoticon I got my nails done a week and a half ago. Once I finished and looked at my pretty hands, I had a revalation!!! I felt so much better about myself. I realized that as I started to gain weight, i started neglecting the things that made me feel good.....other than food emoticon .
A year ago, I pamperedmyslef with biweekly nail appointments. A nice pedicure, eyebrow wax, a fill and a fresh coat of polish...had me sparkling. I realize now, that along with my failure to maintain my hands, feet and eyebrows, I had been skimping on my hair care. My conclusion is, that it's a package...If you neglect one aspect of your life, it throws it all off balance. I went out to a friends house for a party on Saturday...I had a ball. i gave myself a night off from calorie recording and beating myself up over my food choices. i ended up eating a ncie meal on Saturday, drank some wine and had a ball.
Sunday, i took a day off from exercising..I dont feel bad about it..that's a first. i think i am making some progress......FINALLY!!! Oh, and I did have a 5 pound loss for the month of January!!! I hit some bumps in the middle of the month, so I am giving myself credit for those 5.5 pounds in 2 weeks!!!

OK.....It's january 27, 2009 and....

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

I am still bs'ing about getting out and enjoying life.
I am still obsessed with food.
I am still fighting good habits, tooth and nail....


I have stayed withing my caloric intake limit for 5, yep FIVE days!!!
I really didnt feel like exercising last night, and looked for every excuse not to. I had already decided that if I couldnt find a parking space at the gym, I was going home...Well, on my way out, there was a space. It was wierd, all the other spaces were filled, people that were leaving had the parking lot stalkers behind them, a line of cars were waiting to pull into the parking lot...but there was an uncontested parking space.
The exercise Gods put that space there for me. Had I went home, I wouldnt have pulled the step out and did it at home.
Part two...
So....After I went in a pushed myself with some cardio, I decided that i deserved a reward. I was going to Costco and have a vanilla frozen yogurt....yum. But for some reason, I turned right instead of left out the parking lot. It was like I was on auto pilot. I then decided, I will go to Mc Donalds and get a small ice cream cone. Well, I drove past Mickie Dee's to the freeway. I thought about all the places I could satisfy my craving for some ice cream on my route home....but instead i pulled out a cup of fat free yoplait. It was almost an after thought when i was leaving work to grab the cup of Lemon Cream Pie yogurt from the fridge and stash it in my lunch bag.
I ate that yogurt on my way home....I went home and stayed within my boundaries with a 1/2 sandwich and some baked fries.
I'm proud of what I accomplished yesterday...Fighting the demons is rough...but today is another day....

January 1, 2009 Weigh in. 230 freaking pounds!!! WTF?!?!

Thursday, January 01, 2009

emoticon I included that emotion because I feel sorry for myself. emoticon I included that emotion because i am somewhat shocked.
emoticon I include this emotion because i am determined to run this year!! I love working's the food I cant control. emoticon emoticon emoticon Food...I am addicted. I am addicted to tthe taste of food on my tongue. I am addicted to the comfort i get from food. food is like crack, a short term high that I continually chase. Food replaces the lover that I long for. Food replaces the social interaction that I am missing. Food replaces the self esteem that I am lacking. Food replaces the opinions, emotions and pain that I internalize. Food compensates for the shyness that I feel crippling me.
Well, i dont use common sense either. I dont use it when it comes to food, men, relationships or health.

Control...Why is it so hard to lose it?

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

I have taken the advice of every grown up i have encountered to heart..."clean your plate". I cant start eating some food that is in a bag, bowl, can etc and not try and finish. It happened to me last night. i started munching on some popcors, caramel popcorn and I didnt stop until I got the bottom of the container...
