The Scale is Making Me Crazy

Monday, May 06, 2013

Hey guys,

Sooooooooooo what the heck? Ok so my weigh in day is Saturday. I get up and weigh in at home then go in to weigh in at WW. Now since I started, my weight has always been 1 lb higher at WW but now it's just all over the place.

On the 27th of April when I weighed in at home, I was down 1 lb. Yayyyy but then I went to WW and I was UP 0.4 emoticon WHAT THE HECK NOOOOOOOOO. Ok so whatever keep it pushing.

This past Saturday I weighed in at 233 down another lb from April 27th on my home scale. YAYYY Went to weight watchers, I lost 0.2. emoticon UMMMMMMMMM what is going on?

Well I considered getting a new home scale but I figured why waste the money. What does it even matter? I'm going to keep going. I will continue eating right and working out because this is not a diet. This is not something I will just quit when I get frustrated. There will be bumps in the road, but that doesn't mean I should throw in the towel on my WL journey.

Idk what the scale will say on this coming Saturday but I will work harder towards my goals.
Here are my goals for this week.
1. Drink 64 oz of water at least - I purchased a container for 64 oz of water to drink at work and I know I will drink more before and after work
2. Go to the gym 3x a week - Ok I'm really bad at this. I have a gym membership and I barely go but I DO work out at least 5x a week at home. This week I will go to the gym at least 3x this will be my goal every week
3. NO GOING OUT TO EAT - Fast food for me is Tim Hortons or Subway but I am going to cut that out for a min. I'm also not going to go to any restaurants of any sort this week
4. Measure all food - This is key. I have been eyeballing what my 3/4 of chocolate cheerios are. I started measuring them but stopped. I measured this morning and realized, that I was eating wayyyyyyyyy less than I can eat so I am going to start back weighing and measuring everything this week.

Welp, that's all folks. I hope Saturday the scale is down. If not guess what, I will still keep going.

    The month of April was filled with special occasions which involved food. I hope May is easier.

    I know your frustration! Your goals sound great. In my experience I am always the lightest first thing in the AM at home. Any time after that I would be more forgiving and not read too much into what the scale says because once you're up and moving about, drinking water, wearing clothes its going to be different. What matters is your making great changes. The scale is just a tool, don't let it dictate your mood :) You got this! :)
