No Loss this Week

Saturday, April 10, 2010

Since starging sp in early February, this is the first week that I have not lost weight according to the scales. Yea, I know I should throw them out the window, but that is one habit I cannot break. Winter is the time for me to stay at home, cook and work on pottery. As we get into spring and I get closer to my shows, my time is at a premium. I work very hard at trying to eat healthy homemade food, but have turned to lean cuisines this week to help get me through the busy times. I think that is the main reason I have not lost. I have managed to stay within my limits, but I haven't had the good food I usually cook.

So, I know what the problem is, I just have to work it out. My first show is next weekend and we will be eating out from Friday to Sunday night. I have planned some healthy snacks and even breakfast and lunch to pack for the motel. The worst part is that I might break my log in streak if the motel doesn't have a computer. That stinks as I have gone over 60 days logging in. Oh well, the true tests are coming up.

Forgive me if I don't keep up as much as I have been. We won't slow down now until December.

I think I will give up on the scales for a while.

    I'm in the same boat you are this week...didn't lose anything! However, this happened a couple of weeks ago as well...kind of becoming a 'weight loss every OTHER week' if you know what I mean emoticon
    Anyway, I just keep on keeping on just like you are and together WE CAN DO IT! HANG IN THERE you're doing everything you need to be doing right now...PATIENCE emoticon

    I agree with DROWSYMAGGIE...there are times when I measure and no change and I weigh myself too and no change...even my clothes don't fit any differently. But I KNOW there is a difference because my waist did not have that definite crease it had and I am seeing a slight curve with NO fold. Now THERE is visual change. Not the scale,not my clothes,not my measurements, but VISUAL!! So...maybe you have a little visual going on and you did not notice!
    We will miss your blogs while you are busy, but visit when you can and yes, show us pictures of your work...we love pictures...well speaking for myself, I do! emoticon

    After a couple of weekly weigh ins without a loss I decided to only weigh myself once a month. Now I always have a loss when I get out the scale and I don't get that frustrated feeling of not losing. It is working for me.

    Taking a break from the scale is fine. It is only one way to gauge progress and it so dramatic when it's hanging around.

    You are right on track. Just stay focused and do what you need to to keep on truckin'.

    You are rockin' it.

    One week without a loss is no big deal, it could just as easily be your body adjusing to its new weight.
    I took a pottery class YEARS ago in college and loved it. It is one of those thinghs I want to get back into. Maybe in a few years when I retire. Good luck with you shows.

    Good luck!! You may also not have lost cause of retaining water-there is alot of sodium in those lean cuisines...Keep sparking emoticon

    Good luck on your show. Post some pics for us, please. Don't be upset about no loss. Just think about in the past how there might have been a gain because of the stress. You can do this!

    Have you measured yourself lately? Sometimes you will see "numbers" in inches lost even though the scales don't show any change. That has happened to me and keeps me going. Also, the clothes get looser as things readjust. Keep on keeping on and don't get discouraged.
