Week 14, Day 3.

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Feeling pretty low today. My weight has jumped up 1.5 lbs this week and that, after all the efforts I have made with sticking to my nutrition targets, albeit on the low side most of the time, and being more active. I used the Withings scale and my fat percentage has dropped by 2%, so that is a bit more positive. I know muscle weighs heavier than fat, so perhaps that is what it is about. Doesn’t seem to make me feel better though. I have deliberately not been weighing myself so I avoid finding out I haven’t lost, so it is a bit of a downer to find I have not only not lost but actually gained.

Illogical to feel this way. I know that the weight will come off eventually, but it is still disheartening. Spark coach this morning suggests thinking of ways to make the journey more exciting. Hard to see how. I don’t particularly like exercising and it is just not possible to fit more hours into the day so I can get to the gym more regularly for swimming which I do enjoy. I hope to make it tomorrow or Friday though.

    Please don't get discouraged. It happens to ALL of us
    from time to time. You know the body fluid can totally
    make us gain 5 one day, lose 6 the next.

    IT WILL HAPPEN emoticon
