Scale dissapointment?!?!

Thursday, August 04, 2011

Hi y'all. My last blog post was about trying to catch the wagon. I have caught up to it and am riding it down the road. We are not going as fast or as hard as we used to but we are going.

I went to the doctor yesterday for drugs to treat a lovely infection. When your kidneys start acting up it hurts. Hopefully the 3 prescriptions I got will get it taken care of. I realized that when they weighed me it would be my first "official" weigh in since October when my journey really started.

So the pressure was on. What would it say? Would it even be close to mine? Fingers crossed and prayers said. I was mad when I stepped on that scale. 5 pounds heavier than mine. I have been bouncing around in onederland for awhile. Their scale showed a big round 200. I was upset.

Then I thought about it.
There scale is 5 pounds heavier than mine.
That's 19 pounds gone in 10 months.
It was in the middle of the day and fully dressed & still had shoes on.
I have drank my weight in water over the last couple days.
At the family reunion last weekend I ate NO sweets. Nothing. No even one little cookie.
I also did not eat until I was so stuffed I could not move. I ate just enough.
I buy size large shirts and shorts are 2 to 3 sizes smaller than last summer.
I bought a new swimsuit and actually wore it in public.

So while their scale did not show what I wanted it to - that's ok.

Because look how far I have come!! Now that is something to be proud of!

    Don't forget, you are bloated from the meds and the infection. you are doing great!! I am so glad you are on good meds now. I could almost feel that kidney pain..gosh so many years ago..but is nasty. Glad you are feeling better. hugs diana

    While I hate the scale at my doc's place too, her eyes when I returned for my yearly check up erased the extra lbs on their scale. Boy, it's amazing how our thinking changes with Sparking time, eh?

    I think it's wonderful that you've done so well! I also think that all doctors' scales are liars. My scale upstairs and the Wii Fit plus scale weigh me pretty close to the same thing ... the doctor's scale is +4 pounds. Nope, not going to accept that one!


    I sure hope you are feeling better soon. That is such a nasty infection and so painful. Keep drinking lots of water, etc. I'm so glad you went to the doctor for antibiotics.

    Hopefully, your husband won't have to shoot you. emoticon

    Always be proud of your accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem, they are PROGRESS and to be celebrated! Feeling good about yourself is the greatest motivation! I have a family reunion coming up this weekend - and I already have visions of the yummy bars my sisters will bring, the traditional reunion cake, and the large amounts a food that will be available. Your blog has reminded me that I can enjoy the company without overindulging on the food!!
