I have gained back four, almost five hard lost pounds. uuuuuUGH!!!! How? Why?!!? ---- Who? What? When? lol... I don't know! (hands up)
My goal was to lose three more pounds last week, but instead I gained. I was 195.4 aiming for 192 last week...But I ended up back at 197. Now this week I'm back registered on the scale at 199.8. So the difference is 7 almost 8 pounds for my goal last week. And missing that particular mini goal was like the sky was falling... forgive my dramatics. Now, this week, looking at 199 again, I'm just like, ugh.
I am just SICK of the 190's, you know? And here I am, back looking at 199 AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN.
I just don't get it. I've been working out religiously... last week I worked out every day for a solid week. Calorie counting, strength training, cardio, 64 oz of water every day --- all in. Besides that, my eating is on point. So what in the world?
Part of me just feels like throwing my hands up and grabbing some cheese-its and chips ahoy cookies (my beloved "i give up" foods).
Instead of wallowing, I sparked it. Posted it up on my feed --- "why in the world, when I've been so good, is my scale going back up???" No one responded.
Then, in comes MSILVER94 to save the day. She said three words on my feed--- "might be muscle!!"
People, let me tell you... that was like a breath of fresh air partnered with the biggest sigh of relief ever. Seriously! Might be muscle. Why hadn't I thought of that??
Overall, I have been working too hard, for too long to let this little set back kick me out of whack. So even if it IS indeed fat gain of some sort, isn't it better to just psyche myself out and dream that it "might be muscle"???? I choose the latter. Because that's the choiced thought that keeps me going rather than be discouraged. I hope that all makes sense...
So MSILVA94. You were like superwoman, flying in to save the day. Thank you...!
And to everyone else. Got a little weight gain on the scale? Hey. It might be muscle. Keep that in your frontal lobe and don't let it kill your drive. Just keep on moving and grooving and reading your goals. And I shall take my own advice on this as well....! (lol)
(sigh) I feel better now. Good decision.
Meantime, what in the world do I do know?!??...(lol)... Wish me luck.
...for reading. Leave me a note... I love that!
