Week 2 Day 1 Spring 5%-A little disappointed


Saturday, March 24, 2012

I weighed in and was a little disappointed. I thought with all the extra hard work I would have lost at least 1 lb. I am a little bloated seeing that TOM is on its way. But normally around TOM I gain 2 lbs. So losing around TOM should make me feel better. And it does in a way. I just wish I could have met that weekly goal of 0.9. I think the PMS emotions are setting in. Geez, just love being a woman!!! emoticon

Hopefully will see better results next week that was I can meet my end of the challenge goal!

    You are doing emoticon !!! Don't let the emoticon get in the way of your progress. You have to feel better and stronger with all that you are doing! As others have said, the scale will eventually go down. Keep up the awesome job!

    You're doing awesome! More than 120 FM every day, you rock! The scale will catch up, no worries. Give it time, and enjoy the process :-)
Have a great Sunday and a sparkly 2nd week! emoticon

    Hugs to you!!
You did great! The TOM is kicker and definitely is a bummer during weigh in time!
Keep up the good work and cheers to an even more successful week this week! (if you you do that math that you normally gain 2, and you are down .2 - you actually lost 2.2!!!

    Same lunar time of month for us. I had been eating above my daily limits for 3 days now, hoping to be better next week.

    You have done an amazing amount of exercise this week though. I'm sure you feel better for that even if the scale didn't reflect your hard work. It's hard though when the scale doesn't reward you the way you think it should.

Don't let it ruin your weekend - go out and enjoy!

    I hear yea about being a woman! I agree with NEWMAC, sometimes it takes longer for the extra effort to show up. Great effort this week! emoticon emoticon

    Measure your progress on how you feel too! You shared earlier that you were really proud and excited that you had added fitness min each day of the challenge! The weight will come off.

    Do you know that extra hard work can cause water retention by your muscles? That's right! Often when we up our exercise, the weight does NOT come off as we expect although it will catch up eventually. Instead of focusing on that annoying scale which can make us disappointed and demoralized, think of how hard you worked this week and give yourself a pat on the back for that!

You're doing GREAT and the weight will come off!

    Be proud of losing, however small. You are making definite progress.

    I know!!! I thought for sure I would lose the 2 pounds that mysteriously appeared at the start of the challenge, but I didn't....I'm blaming menopause and lack of sleep!! I know it isn't the eating or fitness minutes, and I did my water faithfully and gave up wine!!! Go figure!!! The body just doesn't understand we are in this challenge and want to win for ourselves and the team!!! emoticon

Did you do all that this morning???? Wow! I'm still sitting on the computer, SPARKING, and drinking coffee while eating a healthy breakfast!!! Good for you!! emoticon

    Hey, don't let a number on the scale demotivate you!
You were doing great during the week, so most likely this is just weight fluctuation,
and you will have lost more by the end of next week.
