A "Graph" Day...

Sunday, March 01, 2009

Okay, this is going to be one of those "graph" days that I blogged about the last time. I started off the day with a major disappointment: Showed no change at 219. Normally, I'd say it was okay since "at least I didn't gain" but here's the thing: I weighed in at 217 yesterday! VERY FRUSTRATED because after being careful yesterday I thought I would at least maintain or show a little improvement today. To see 219 made me yell out loud! *sigh* Here's what I'm going to do to "tweak" this week:

-Start tracking my food again. I seriously got away from that in the last several weeks. I think I'm taking in more calories than I think I am because I'm trying to "guesstimate". This clearly does not work for me.

-I've given up white flour, white sugar and white rice for Lent. I think I over compensated with sodium (in the form of seasonings to make meat taste better). Gotta watch the salt!

-Some of my weight gain may be attributed to doing resistance training. I don't want to give that up though so I'll live with the "slow" progress. (And even if it has nothing to do with it, this helps me feel better. *g*)

-I'm TERRIBLE with my consistency in the water department. I will DEFINITELY make a more concentrated effort there!

-I'm going to make my nutrition and exercise tracker public. It'll help my accountability.

    Ok here's the deal. It takes 'time' for you body to change. Say you did outstanding today but tomorrow your weigh-in is higher. But three days later it's back down. From personal experience you have a good week but gain weight then the next you'll lose. Not exactly sure why but maybe it takes time for your body to adjust to what you are doing. Anyway I just want you not to be discourage over a one day change in weight and not keep going. Good luck with your weight loss journey.
