A watched pot

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Okay, the last time I blogged I lamented that I had gained back 10 pounds of the pounds I've lost in the last couple of years. I took the reins and have lost 4 of the 10 pounds that I had gained. I lost those 4 pounds all last week and I was ecstatic. This week I've added an extra day of exercise, cut down on sugar and I've only lost a total of 4 ounces. WTF!!! I don't understand what my body is doing (or not doing). But one thing I'm going to stop doing is weighing myself everyday. That might work for some people, but it only sets me up for disappointment when I don't get the results I expect. From now on, I'll stick to the 1 or 2 times a week weigh in. Progress over time is more realistic anyway.

    It absolutely KILLS me not to weigh myself every day, but I'm trying really hard to only weigh myself every week. It's hard, but I agree with you that it's what we need to do. If I lose one pounds from Monday to Tuesday I feel like I better lose at least one pound from Tuesday to Wednesday! Its better for me to just not see the fluctuations.

Good luck! Keep up the good work. Your body can only hold on to that weight for so long before it finally gives up!
