A Little Frustrated...

Saturday, April 11, 2009

Well, I've had my first setback on this journey. Yesterday I was up .8 and I am really disappointed about it. I didn't overeat this week, so I was a little surprised to see the number go up on the scale.

Although I'm a little frustrated, I'm going to keep working at it. I looked over my nutrition tracker and I see that I need to add more Power foods. I also noticed that even though I stayed within my calorie range, a large part of my calories are being consumed at dinner. So I'm going to add some calories to breakfast and lunch, and decrease my calories at dinner. Also, I'm still not in a good exercise routine so I'm going to work on that this week too.

I have a little more motivation this week because we have a Biggest Loser competition that started at school on Friday. So I'm competing with my coworkers on weight loss now.

Hopefully all of these strategies will help the scale move in the right direction next week!

    Hi MaryBeth! Don't fret about less than a pound! Your body has its natural rhythms and will go up and down; mine usually fluctuates anywhere from 1-3 pounds on a day to day basis. It is when I see the range of weight going down that is the important thing :) Something came to mind when reading your post - are you eating 6 smaller meals a day? I find that is the most important take-away from the Abs Diet for me. I find that if I am doing the plan correctly, I am never hungry, I'm always eating, I'm drinking a lot of water, AND I'm losing weight. So how are your eating intervals and water intake doing? emoticon
