Mind Games or Something Else?

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

emoticon It seems that my mind is playing tricks with my body. Last week I pushed for a weight loss of only one lb, with all that I know and with all the gadgets I use, it sure should have worked! But no... when my weigh in day rolled around I was up 1.8 lbs! That just seems wrong! What gives? It's these types of issues that makes a person wonder if it is even worth the struggle to stay motivated! But I do know that I have to keep trying and stay in the game, otherwise all my hard work will be a waste and quickly I might add! I guess that is why the weight loss industry is making billions from all of us struggle to keep our weight off or to keep trying to lose it again and again! Truly, I wish there was a way I could get my head in line with what my body is up to, or something! With all the graphics my armband (bodymedia) offers, I really don't get much out of it. It seems that the only thing I really make of it all is that I ate to much fat and didn't work hard enough. I guess I shouldn't try so hard. It is very annoying & I think I may have to change the rules to the game. How? I am not sure yet, but if I figure it out I will blog about it. Any suggestions are most appreciated.

    I've just now cleaned up my act and so far the scale is not a good place for me to look. I stopped my Diet Mt Dews and now I'm drinking 8 cups of water. I've dropped the sugary things and instead have had things like soup. I think that the fact that I'm really drinking at least 8 cups of water a day and that I've replaced the sugar junk I ate before with things that have more sodium, has meant the scale isn't ready to go down yet.

But I'm trying to be patient and just keep on with the program, because I think I'll see results later. Wish I knew the answers. I'm getting back to weight lifting now too so my body is probably all kinds of confused. emoticon

    When I have a gain it usually is because I wasn't diligent about drinking my water. I can't believe it makes such a difference but it does. Also making sure my portions are what they should be is important because I have found that my eyes lie!! Don't give up. emoticon
