Struggling


Tuesday, May 15, 2012

I spent two weeks buying fresh fruits and veggies and unprocessed food. It bumped my groceries up to $40/week. I really can't do that. So I dropped back down to processed things, but I still feel like I'm doing the best I can considering the circumstances.

More than anything, I'm upset I haven't lost weight. It's been three weeks now and I keep fluctuating between 157-160. I know weight isn't the most important goal. I know I feel better and have more energy. But seeing the scale stay exactly the same despite my work is so discouraging. I'm going to start measuring myself instead. It's just so much more effort!

    I have a love/hate relationship with the scale. Hate it because I can't stay away from it. About your food prices. You can see what each store has on sale online. If you have a walmart they will match the price. I've cut my grocery bill from the fresh produce and vegetables and dairy and couponing about 30%. Gas is too spendy to run to each store. It does take some time. Found a website that tells you what each store has, and lists it's best deals. It allows you to highlight and print.

    Dear Alexback,

I know how you feel, it is true that a good and healthier body is more important, but after all the workout, we ask our self ....why isn't the scale moving downwards and sometimes it seem like we gain a bit more after sweating it out?

The answer is our diet......... emoticon

    I like to measure and weigh so I get a true idea, and remember muscle is heavier, you could be changing shape but not losing, so don't stress yourself out about it

    i found that the measuring gets quicker with repititions but i only measure once a week seeing the inches move takes justs as long as the scale it seems at times but a reward that makes me want to keep moving helps out. best of luck in hitting all your goals
