Ok, so maybe that title isn't entirely accurate. I'm not really stuck at one weight, it's more of a range of weights. I seem to be able to gain weight and stay the same, but losing weight? Nope, not really an option!
I keep staying the same, trying new things to lose the weight, and they either make me stay the same, or gain. I didn't know I would be able to gain while eating a net calories of 1400. But that's what happened! I haven't updated my tracker yet, because it's been changing so randomly.
So I think I've decided to take a hiatus. Not from exercise. Not from eating healthy foods. But from the scale. I'm not going to measure myself. I'm only going to wear my clothes with elastic waists so I'm not thinking about how my jeans fit. I want to eat right and exercise because that's who I am, and not worry about the outcome.
I'm going to be doing this until my birthday, May 12. Well, technically the day after. So on May 13th, I will try on my jeans, measure myself, and weigh myself. I will put down whatever those numbers are. I will wear my jeans with pride, or slide them off and put on my workout pants. Whatever happens, I choose to be happy.
I choose to know when I've become too obsessed with counting every calorie and weighing every day. I can do both for long periods of time and be fine. I've proven that. But sometimes, it's time to give our minds, bodies and emotions a break.
