This has never happened to me! I have been eating great! For 3 days and exercising longer, plus super hard the past few days. NOTHING. No results. I am super sore and annoyed and the same weight. WTF?!

  Give your body time to adjust to the good things you are giving it, i.e. good food and exercise. The scale sometimes takes a bit longer to show results but don't give up! You CAN do it! emoticon emoticon emoticon

When I am Good, I am Very Good...

..and when I am bad, I'm horrid!

I am having a rough day. I exercised, stuck to my diet, and have been using the Wii Fit for about a week now. I also got Jillian Michael's fitness game for the Wii. I have been walking outside, too. I don't see any change, and I actually gained a little weight. I went out to eat twice over the weekend, but no gain from Saturday. I kept almost to my calories for Sunday despite going out, and still managed to gain some more.

I am so discouraged. I feel pretty depressed today. My calves are sore, I have been doing more workouts than usual, eating right about 80% and yet weight loss eludes me!

    I only exercised hard yesterday, other than that I walk only.

    I have the exact same problem when I start to work out--2-3 pounds instantly added on the scale. The fitness forums say that it is your muscles holding onto water as they tear and repair over and over--the more sore your muscles are, the more water you are holding onto because they are healing. I avoid the scale for at least a week, so I don't lose heart.

Good luck to you--you are doing all the right things!

    Have you ever thought that maybe you're over training and your body is reacting negatively? Sometimes we can put too much strain on our bodies and they do not like it.

Best of luck with everything! I hope the scale likes you soon. **the darn scale is stupid**

My turkey burger last night was DELICIOUS. I must have more. I am going to the store almost exclusively for ground turkey. Holly, thanks for the tip: I will definitely freeze pre-made patties up instead of chunks of meat, as I normally do.

I am a third of the way through Michaels' book, and I am not overly impressed, but there is some interesting new info in there about what kind of oxidizer you are, depending on what you like to eat and whatnot.

I made it through yesterday. I had a nice sized glass of sweet sparkling wine and a Captain and Diet, but still made it under my calorie limit (narrowly). I am looking forward to making today even healthier, but not having any cocktails. In my defense, I blame my co-workers at the bar! But I did stop myself and not succomb to peer pressure like I normally do. I am easily talked into diet failure. I can talk myself into it in no time!

That's all for now...stay positive! My new motto. :)

  emoticon Aww, you are so welcome, Whitney! I have a pic in my photos of a turkey burger in flatbread that I made. It looks as good as it tasted! I cut it in half and laid it side by side to fit the width of the bread. Filled it up that way. Be creative with your food and make it pretty when you can. As for that peer pressure, remember that you have the ability to say No. Respect yourself and treat yourself well. Never forget that YOU ARE WORTH IT! I love your new positive outlook! Great blog! emoticon

Woo hoo!

Hey strangers! I am happy to announce I took the plunge and ordered Jillian Michael's "30 Day Shred" and I am excited to start doing it. I also got a Wii Fit from my sister to try, so we are hooking up that tonight so I can mess around on it tomorrow. Can't wait! I walked like 2.8 miles today, did some other exercises on my floor. Yay! Motivation feels good.

I also purchased Jillian Michael's book, "Winning by Losing..." and I am currently reading that on my Kindle. I'm making turkey burgers on sandwich thins (whole wheat) with some steamed green beans for dinner. I am on it today! I feel GREAT!

  WOO HOO! I feel your excitement! You are on top of it my friend! I LOVE turkey burgers! I put lots of good spices and seasonings in the meat and form the patties and freeze them so I can pull one out and cook when I want one. Great job and Great blog!
Thanks for sharing! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy New Year!

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Well, the holidays are over and I have remained relatively unscathed. I am back on track, and I am really motivated. I have been a lot more positive about diet and weight loss since I lost a few lb. in a week. I gained a pound or two over the holidays (thanks, champagne, wine, evil Christmas cookies made deliciously), but it could have been worse!

I am totally ready to get back on track and return to my healthy habits. I got a bunch of treats (think: Puff'n Corn [this is truly the evil of the evil], candy, cookies [also evil] and whatnot. I gave them all to my 6'3 146 lb. husband. He can use the fat! His cholesterol is 80, the lucky man!

I also have somewhat changed my goal weight. I think that I look and feel great at a higher weight than 115 or so. I am only 5'3, but I think I have significant muscle mass and therefore I don't look great and look skeleton-like at that weight. I am going to be happy with the mid to low 120's. 5 lb. can make a big difference for me, so I feel like I am going to focus on eating healthy and trying to move a bit.

Hope you all had a happy holiday!

    Sounds like you have excellent goals set. And, yeah, the holiday treats... so awesome but so evil! We're realistic enough to realize we're going to eat them. The goal is just to eat them in moderation.

    Happy New Year to you! Mid to low 120s sounds like a really reasonable goal. Best of luck with getting a great start to January, I'm going to try and cut down on treats too. Brownies are just too tempting!
