not happy with the scale today

Monday, April 29, 2013

so the weekend came and went today at work i got on the scale and wow a 5lb increase. I just dont get it. I did not eat the wrong foods this weekend I didnt over eat . I felt i was fairly active i did some gardening, we was out and about taking picture and took the kids to the park. I ate salad but the scale says otherwise. I have to say i am tired of that scale and dieting. when will this feel like a lifestyle and not a forever diet. I had food on my mind all the time before surgery and now after just different reasons. always watching what i eat and the amount. oh well i keep telling myself who knows tomorrow the scale may be a little nicer

    Has the scale been any better since you wrote this blog? I can really appreciate what you are saying, as I have the same feelings a lot. I wish food was not an issue - I would love to be able to not think about it, not have to plan ahead, just make healthy choices as I go and be naturally thin - to me, that is a lifestyle. I know that is not my path to walk at this point, though. Unfortunately, I will always have to be thinking about food - not obsessing with it, but planning ahead and yes, restricting certain foods and portions, which is usually not easy. It seems like 99% of this battle is in the mind, and there is no band that helps with that.

    I know how you feel my scale hasn't moved all week but more likely it's water retention for working outside I get that way to sometimes when I work outside more standing on your feet than at other times does it for me.

    In my experience, salt/fluid changes throws my weight off pretty easily.

    Is it possible you did not eat enough and your body went into "starvation" mode?

    Try not to be too focused on the scale. Easier said than done I know. But a lifestyle change should be more than just a number. If your feeling good, and being more active, playing with the kids, that's what's important. Our weight can fluctuate daily, so maybe try weighing in once a week/month. emoticon emoticon

    If you have a battery operated scale, you may need to change the batteries. This has happened to me.
