I'm confused!? But I'll take it!

Monday, September 26, 2011

After a week of seeing NO movement in the scale or my tape measure I finally saw a drop!
Two pounds!!
The confusion comes in the disappointment I had after a successful eating and fitness week and seeing no change last time I weighed in. In fact I didn't record it but the scale actually jumped up two pounds and then fluctuated all week! I was more than a little discouraged. I kept on but didn't feel near as motivated.
This past weekend I had NO time to work out and we had a lot of celebrations and higher calorie days (though not as high as I would have been in the past emoticon ). I expected to see that same number and maybe plus another pound but wonder of wonders!!! So, I have no idea what my body is doing but like I said....I'll take it!!

    I have weeks like that too. I have found that if I only stick to my calorie range all week, I either stay the same or gain, but if I indulge one meal a week where I don't worry about calories or health factor (ie fat content) I lose. So, my routine is that one meal a week or sometimes a whole day, I don't log anything I eat. It's works for me.

Congrats on the loss! emoticon

    I'd take it, too! Sometimes there are just normal fluctuations and it takes a while for things to register. Never pays to panic over a pound or two...
