If that scale doesn't stop sticking its tongue out at me and laughing I won't be held responsible!

Saturday, December 01, 2012

I did not make my goal. I lost 6 pounds and that is WONDERFUL. I was at 298 yesterday morning and today was back up to 303. I was SURE I would go under that magic number this month. ARGGGGHHHH. I feel like the scale is just plain MOCKING me.

In spite of the scale's taunting, I was in a good mood today when I started off. Breakfast at church was nice. I decided to use my Subway card and get lunch - I was going to get a sandwich for me and for Ed and then, because the meatball subs were $2.00 for a 6 inch, I got lunch for my stepmother, stepbrother, and step-grandson. I brought Ed's home and was so pleased that I got all the side stuff he loves, pickles, spinach, hot peppers, etc. I don't like meatballs so I got a different one for me. I got home and told Ed I got him the meatball sub and accidentally gave him the wrong one. I immediately realized it and started to switch - he had already put all the NASTY crap on MY sandwich so guess who didn't get any lunch. He was really apologetic and I was not MAD AT HIM, BUT I was VERY disappointed. I was also annoyed enough that I ended up eating a grapefruit (another HAPPY story - bought some today - got home and the one I chose was ROTTEN). I was ready to throw in the towel.

I survived. I did not binge. I DID whine. I am STILL whining. Nobody wants to hear that nonsense, so I am going to go to bed. Good night - watch TOMORROW when my weight won't count, I will probably weigh 290 or something equally ridiculous.

    Couldn't you have just taken the nasty stuff back off and eaten your sandwich? I'd rather do that than do without, especially since I bought for everyone. But it does sound like a bad day. Go ahead and whine, honey, it doesn't put on a pound, as long as you don't let it go on too long. But you know that. emoticon

    I'll be honest I would have been so disappointed not to have been able to eat my Subway sandwich in fact I'm hungry now for one. I'm almost afraid to get on the scale tomorrow as not sure how I've done. Some good days and some not so good. I only WI once a week and always dread it. I think it does affect my mood but I know that's not helping me or anybody else so I try to think positive and push forward harder.

    Awww bless you, you can whine all you want to us, we don't mind and it does take the momentum away from binge eating.......................good on you for staying strong (although i too would have been upset about my sandwich xx - you ar enot alone there)
As they say tomorrow is another day, always look forward and not back.

    As long as you only eat low fat cheese with your whine, you'll be okay emoticon

Hope today goes better! You'll hit that magic number this month. :-)

    Have you noticed that eating something with lots of salt from a restaurant makes you retain fluid? That helps make the pounds fluctuate like you're seeing.

That's why i like to weigh once a week because I see more of an average of those fluctuations. Also, My mom likes to go out to eat on Sunday or Friday. While I stay within my range for calories, I can't take their salt out of the food. I drink lots of water, the day before and after to get it out of my system quickly. So I do my weekly weigh ins Friday morning.

    Gee, your day was as good as mine was. I was eating breakfast at 6:00 pm. I have been in such a funk, that I wasn't hungry. But I started getting lightheaded and the heart started acting up a bit, so I figured I best eat. So I ate toast. What a great day of food and nutrition that was. I did, however, get my water in. But my scale is mocking me also. I lost nine pounds a few weeks ago and now I guess I want to put it plus more back on. Sunday is another day, maybe it will be better for both of us.
Good Luck (hugs) Noel
