Day 23 of 2013 - Let's Face The Scale

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

So, I weighed in today, and picked up. It's not the end of the world. I just need to pick myself and continue where I left off.

Trying to get into a new routine, is not going to happen overnight. It takes 1 step at a time.

So, far I have achieved 3 of my goals for today...

And just by that I feel that I am making progress.

    Sorry to hear that your scale didn't cooperate today! But you are totally correct that a new routine takes time to establish. You are doing great on those goals! So praise yourself for that and let the scale take care of itself! (I know that's easier said than done, but I say this as one who watched the scale rise the entire second half of the last BLC!) emoticon

    Great job on your goals! None of us like to see the numbers go up, but sounds like you're taking it all in stride. You are definitely making progress, regardless of what the scale shows! Love the graphic too....very cute.

    Hi Bonny! Yes, you and I are in the same boat this week! A weight gain showing up on the scale isn't fun, but it is something to learn from. There's a great old song from a 1930s Ginger Rogers-Fred Astaire movie that's been running through my head that goes something like "Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again."

    Dammit, I'm going to start sounding like a broken record, cuz I just got done posting something similar to this on mspatooty's blog-- but:

I'm a firm believer in a monthly weigh in-- and I don't weigh in week to week unless I'm in a challenge (like BLC) that insists I do so. This is because you are always and never your true weight. You are always your true weight because at this moment, you weigh what you weigh. You are never your true weight because today your horomones spiked, your colon decided to suck more nutrients out of that salmon you ate yesterday, your arm muscles grew, your legs are swollen from the heavy duty last chance workout last night, you slept more/less than normal, you had too many carbs/ not enough carbs, you're getting sick and your immune system is in overdrive-- EVERY THING that happens in your body affects your weight, EVERY SINGLE THING-- even a gram here a gram there, it all adds up. Daily and Weekly weigh ins rarely honestly reflect a true gauge of where your body is at... there are SO MANY factors that come into play.

Are you on your program: less calories in than what you are burning? If yes, than you are on the right track, and a monthly weigh in will reflect that.

2 pounds-- that's nothin'. Let's see what week 4 says in relation to week 1.

You're doing awesome.

And sidebar: your attitude is great. You are acheiving your goals, you are pursuing a healthier you-- this is awesome.

    Sorry about your weight gain - it happens. Just refocus and do the best you can. You'll get there.
