Day 432- First time yo-yoing in a while

Monday, February 04, 2013

I wish I was talking about my childhood toy.

But unfortunately, I'm talking about my weight. I was up to 191 after my grandma died, got down to 184.8, and was even 185.8 yesterday morning, and woke up to 188 this morning.

I don't want to get complacent and comfortable. I am NOT to my goal yet, but I'm also much happier with myself so I feel like I'm not trying as hard.

I have made too many excuses in the past month. Not getting the job here in Athens really had me down for a few days, and the bitter cold has cut into my workouts.

But I'm going to keep training for my half marathon at my school's indoor track today.

I've also reset my goals so my calorie intake is back down to 1250-1500 calories a day. I increased it because I thought it was necessary because I was running more and working out, but I'm just not seeing the results I want so I'm going to try and get a bigger calorie differential this week and see what happens.

I did purchase two tankinis for spring break that I think I look pretty good in. I don't know if I'll ever be in a real bikini, but I'm okay with how I look in the two I purchased and am very excited to be on the beach in less than a month.

Back on Track for what seems like the billionth time... but really hoping to get moving back in the right direction.

Thanks for sticking with me.

    You gots this! As long as you eat clean and work hard, you'll stay on track. If you ever want a running buddy let me know. We can help keep each other motivated! Haha.

    You are doing great. And I weigh once a week, because I can not handle seeing my numbers fluctuate from day to day.

    It's all about not giving up. this doesn't have a finish line. It's not how many times you fall down it's how many times you get up!

    Do you weigh yourself everyday? I have seen on here that a lot of people do weigh everyday....I purposely don't get on the scale everyday....I think our bodies fluctuate so much from day to day for many reasons....I find I get so caught up on the "numbers" if I weigh in too for me weighing once a week at the same time, wearing the same clothes is best...I think you have a good plan in place and I know you can get to your inspire me!! emoticon

    As I have noticed these months, scales are vicious little creatures! Sometimes they decide it's time to torture us!
You are doing great and I'm sure your scale is gonna get back to your lowest weight soon.

    Good for you! I know what it's like to feel really happy with where you are, so the 'goal' seems less important... Stay on track and stay healthy, though! It's awesome you are switching around your calories and stuff, that was one thing that helped me get back on track.

    I've been fluctuating too and I'm trying to put pay too much attention to it. I know what I ate and I can't have gained 3 pounds overnight!

You are doing a fantastic job, just take it one day at a time! emoticon emoticon

    I'm in the same place - down to 182, up to 187 after a food heavy weekend. We'll get there. We've both come so far that, like you said, we're almost just being complacent and happy with where we are. We'll get there. PUSH!!! emoticon

    I think a bunch of us have been up and down this past month. I can't seem to get my motivation in the right place. I'm motivated today...but I'm sure that will wax and wane by Wednesday. That and the whole "girl" thing gets annoying.
You are doing awesome! I've gotten a lock down on my calories too...sounds about right. You have a plan, which is half the battle.
You are Sparktastic! xo

    The body does strange things. You have lost a lot and sometimes your body will go into starvation mode. I try to up my calories for 2 days a month to keep that from happening
