I have been doing much better recently with staying in calorie range and working out... unfortunately, my efforts are not showing on the scale yet.
This past week and a half, I have consistently gained weight while losing inches. I know the myriad of reasons why this could be happening; I am not really asking to be educated or comforted on the subject... I know I can push through it. My main issue is: I do not like how negatively that number affects my mood and my day, especially when I KNOW I am improving my health. Apparently, I have not been able to distance myself 100% from that number.. and really, if it affects me negatively, why should I put myself through that?
Thus, I think I need to put it away for a while and focus on my health and my shrinking jeans size. So, starting now, I am just going to do my best each day to be healthy, and measure my progress with inches, energy level, fitness benchmarks, and general well-being.
My next weigh-in dates will be:
Aug 3rd (the day before visiting family,
Aug 26th (for the end of the BLC.. my goal is 349 by this date)
As for the weekly weigh-ins for the BLC, I will still do them.. I will just be posting the same number each week until my designated weigh-in day.
Byebye scale + frustrations
, hello tape measure + liberation
