Weigh In Today - Anxiety

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I have anxiety about my weigh in today. Last week I thought I did everything right, and I did not loose anything.

This week I drank my water, I tracked my food, I exercised, I ate healthy, I walked my 10,000 steps every day... If I get on the scale and it says I did not loose, I am probably going to cry. Literally!

    I had my weekly weight in today. I did not lose anything but I had a bad day or two this week so I am glad I did not gain. I started measuring too and I saw improvement there so if you are working out regularly you maybe happier with the measuring tape . I make sure to give myself some wiggle room with the tape because it can fluctuate depending on where you place it etc

    OK, Even Steven today. Nothing gained, nothing lost. A little bummed. THANK YOU ALL for your support. No, I have never measured myself, ever. I will do that tonight. And YES, maybe the scale will catch up next week.

I love Spark Friends! As you know my mom and husband do not understand the struggle. Thank you again for your support.

    Don't let the scale dictate your mood!!!

If you did all the right things, the scale will catch up

    I know its tough when the scale doesn't move!!! I went a month and a half (through the holidays) being very very good and only seeing slight increases on the scale. It was AWFUL! But I'm losing again now.

Don't lose heart!! If you keep making healthy choices your body will catch up.

    Remember that your non-scale victories are just as if not more important than the scale, which only reflects your relationship with gravity!

Remember to take monthly measurements. And how are your clothes fitting?

Every little step you take in your journey to becoming healthy counts. So everything you're doing is great! Keep going. Despair not!

Make sure you're drinking at least 64 ounces of water a day - and you may need more than that providing you're not under warning from your physician.

You can check a hydration calculator here:
Hydration Calculator - How Much Water Do You Need?

Track all the nutrition you take in daily. If I even sample something I'm cooking - I make sure it gets tracked.

And because I am lazy, I made sure that SP was not giving me extra calories on the premise that I would be working out X number of times per week - and once I changed that part of the Tracker, my calories came down a little - but I began having more success - both non-scale and scale.

I also double checked the SP range of calories given me against a BMR calculator (how many calories you burn if you're just laying in bed) and once I got that figure and followed the link to daily calories based on my activity level - I had a figure that I could subtract 500 calories from - thus resulting in a pound a week weight loss if I did not eat above that calorie amount.

Which for me meant that I could eat to the mid-range caloric point SP gave me instead of the top range.

BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) Calculator:

You can do this - and you're fellow Sparkers are right alongside you on your journey!

    Well, if you're new to this then you've probably lost fat but gained muscle (which weighs more).
Have you taken measurements of your body? Waist, hips, thigh, calves etc. I measure once a month and it's WAY more encouraging than the scale.
