frustrated with the scale!!!

Thursday, May 03, 2012

I have been working my a** off for the past 2 weeks and I have gained weight. I know, I know, muscle weighs more than fat, etc....and I have been lifting pretty heavy. I am just frustrated because now its like my 10lb weight loss goal is now 13 lbs! I feel stronger and I see differences in my arms, chest and shoulders. In the last week, I have gone on a lower carb diet, which I think will help within the next few weeks for weight loss. I know I shouldn't get frustrated but between my relentless belly fat I want to lose and seeing a higher number on the scale, I have to say I am frustrated. I am taking the necessary steps now. First, I will not look at the scale for exactly 2 weeks. So the next time I weigh in will be MAY 17th. Second, I am cooking healthy meals and bringing them to work rather than eating what is made for all of us (which is pretty much school lunch food) . I am also upping my water intake and doing SMALL but effective things to get a little more cardio in. I did a 15 min workout this morning, Im doing my 6 week to 6 pack after I write this blog, then im heading to work early so I can go for a walk before work. Im hoping these little tweaks will give me some good results within the next couple weeks,

    You are right muscle is heavier and on the bright side eventually the scale will reflect your hard work

    REMEMBER all your non scale victories NSV's they are just as important!

    Don't give up. Give your body time to adjust to the changes. I'm sure you'll be seeing results in no time. emoticon
