The gauntlet fell: disappointing weigh-in.

Monday, February 04, 2013

Am I weird? Am I allergic to weight loss? Ever since having children, I have been navigating this world like an alien in a foreign body. Who are these thighs anyway? They are not mine!

I'm an athlete: I love volleyball, swimming, and working out. I like walks on warm days, and rowing out a kayak on calm waters. So, where did these arm jiggles come from?

At home, we have no cable. I do not sit on the sofa, eat bon-bons and watch soaps all day. What gives?

To say that frustration is taking over, would be an understatement. I'm busting through my workouts, consciously lowering my food portions and even feeling HUNGRY during the day. Okay, so it's only been 2 weeks since I started WW to monitor my portions and get some tangible group support. Maybe a little self-love and patience is due here.

This post-baby body is so weight resistant. Hey look on the bright side! In a famine I'd be the last one standing.

Much love to all my sisters who are struggling to lose weight. Keep at it. CONSISTENCY is key.
One day I'm going to enjoy the results, but I'm committed to the long haul, even the crappy disappointing weigh ins along the way.

    The scale is sometimes deceitful... this week I lost no weight, but I took my measurements and I still lost 9 inches, I fit in a old blouse I couldn't close anymore and in the new pants DH bought me a size too small emoticon

    I never feel hungry with my nutrition plan though, are you sure you're not going too low on the calories and pushing your body into starvation modus ? You could try the "emergency button" message board to ask the sparkcoaches for advice...

    Wishing you the best with your weight loss,

    I completely and totally understand. It sounds like to me you are doing the right things. I really admire you. If only we could go into our physical bodies and boss them around like we do in our minds.

    Much luck to you. I would offer advice, but you are much more together than me.

    I love your attitude.
