Week 2 Challenge Weigh In

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Last week was a gain from 162 to 163.5. This week I went from 163.5 to 165.3. I am so disgusted! I know my eating wasn't the best but I didn't think it was the worst either (TOM). I burned about 1600 calories this week (2 physical therapy sessions, daily walks with the dog, 3 mile run, and Slim in 6 video). I would quit the challenge but it would hurt my team mates.

    I was up a little too. Don't quit! Stick with us. We're a team through ups, downs and in-betweens.

    Hang in there. My weight likes to follow the price of gas - always going up. I am happy to be in the challenge because it is starting to go down, but I am afraid it will start going up again.
I had a relapse yesterday. We went to visit a sick friend in Chicago then stopped at other friends for dinner. We had pizza followed by Apple pie. Need I say more? I promptly put on a couple of pounds overnight. I am confident I will lose it. You will too! emoticon emoticon

    Don't give up! We absolutely don't want you to leave the team b/c of a gain. We've all been there before. It's not fun, but it happens. And it's a small gain that can be rid of very soon.
You just emoticon !

You said you know you haven't been eating the best and it's TOM, maybe try adding fruits and veggies in as snacks to curb the cravings (if you get them) as a low-calorie snack.

    Hang in there. Just imagine where you would be if this challenge wasn't pushing you to get in the exercise. emoticon

    Sorry to hear of your disappointment and frustration with the scale - if it's any comfort, I know just how you feel!

But I echo the comments of our other Awesome A Team-mates in saying: don't give up. Ignore the scale. Keep making healthy choices and the rest will follow even if not at the timescale we hope for!

Well done on doing all that exercise including a 3-mile run this week!

    emoticon Don't give up! TOM always brings a few pounds my way no matter what I do. You will probably be down those last two next week. emoticon emoticon

    No quitting, hon. We all have bad weigh-ins. We all have disappointments. You need to get up and try again. And again. You'll get there.

And we'll be with you on this journey. emoticon

    Lakisha....don't give up. This happens. Yes, we need you, but you also need us! We can do this together. Try again this week, get your head in the game, it's going to be worth it. YOU CAN DO THIS. Big hugs to you,

    Remember that the challenge is to encourage us. If the challenge becomes a discouragement, then you need to get your mind refocused.

Things to keep in mind:
1. Yes, we love you and don't want you to go because of the gain. You're certainly not letting us down! emoticon

2. I can gain up to 5 lbs when TOM comes along. Check out your salt intake. It may all just be water retention. emoticon

3. This may be an indication of a major drop next weigh in. Don't sweat the small stuff, just SWEAT. emoticon

Just wondering, are you counting calories? or just estimating?

    Don't give up! Sometimes it's 2 steps back before you can take 3 forward.
