I will not cry I will not cry

Saturday, March 23, 2013

So I weighed and yes I was up 7 pounds to 280 pounds . Honestly it is taking every ounce of courage not to cry right now . Just because I know why it is there doesnt mean that it easy to accept it and move on . It is gut wrenching and leaves a bitter taste in your mouth but it also out of necessity that is there. Today I made it up to the 1800 calories they want me to eat and according to my fitness tracker I burned off 1638 calories . I feel good about my workout and I knew i was going to be up but ok 7 pounds really ... so here lets see what is special with or without those seven pounds .

1. I have lost about 50 inches across my whole body
2. I can cross my legs again
3. my knees longer touch each other unless I want them to
4. i know longer snore at night
5. I have gone from a 28 down to a size 20
6. I can now not only do one crunch I can do 120 of them
7. I can now walk 6 miles when not under doctor's care
8. I have rock solid triceps
9. I have to date found some 20 new bones in my body
10. I can see my appendix scare again
11. I have a belly button again
12. I no longer need food to make me feel better
13. my eyes dont look like they are closed any more .
14. I have actually had to move the seat closer to the steering wheel to drive .
15. and most import ... i am so much more the person now than I was almost a hundred pounds ago ...

my measurements are down so this is just a minor set back and it should start to taper back off by next week ... this is not an inclusive list but the ones that are important to me ... excuse my I am not going to have a pity party blog ... just trying to move on past this right now ...

    Those are some brilliant NSVs! Being able to walk 6 miles is a great achievement as is the number of crunches you can do. I'm pretty certain I'm not there yet with that number so it's good to know that if I keep at it then I'll get there too.

    emoticon even if your not feeling it. I was up at least 5 pounds twice this week because I ate salty food. emoticon

    Your NSVs tell a story of success, in spite of a setback on the scales. Frustrating to see the number and okay to cry, then get back to doing what needs to be done. You've made such awesome progress, don't let this slow you down! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon accomplishments!
    You are doing great... and in spite of the gain, you lost inches? That screams "more muscle!" to me. :) emoticon emoticon

    Here's a tissue for your tears...cry them and be done. emoticon

    You've listed such awesome accomplishments. Don't let that evil scale take all that away from you! Think back hundred or so years when people didn't have personal scales. They would've never known about this temporary gain. They would've just known how better they felt, how their clothes were fitting, and about all those 20 bones (love that!).

    So put a smile back on your face and tell the scale to shut up. emoticon

    wow Tink those are some emoticon accomplishments! I am so glad that you got some professional advice about your calorie intake. 1800 in and 1600+ out is still not much to exist on each day. You have done some amazing things and it's great that you focused on losing the healthy way. I keep thinking about the recent Biggest Loser, Dani ... she gained 18 pounds of muscle! That was probably what fueled her success.
    So DON"T cry ... celebrate emoticon your outstanding achievements!
    emoticon to you my emoticon

    As long as your NSVs are going in the right direction, don't worry about the scale. Don't cry over it!!

    Don't cry. This is a bump in the road, that's all. You will overcome it!

    Oh Tink, I had the same things happen to me..different reason. I have to keep telling myself I am not a number. I don't remember that. But look at where you are and blog every day if you have to till you find that happy space. emoticon emoticon emoticon
