I Finally Had To Do It

Thursday, June 20, 2013

So, I lost 71 pounds and felt great about it! So what did I do? Slacked off on exercising and eating right. I gained back 10 pounds. No, that isn't much, but I am so mad at myself for letting it happen! I have been back on track for the past 2.5 weeks. I re-lost 4 of those pounds. Then I keeping going back and forth though on 2 of those... gain... lose... gain .... lose.... ARGH!

I'm one of those people who weighs in every day. I know that all the experts say that we shouldn't, but I always have. It's what (usually) works for me. However, this past week and a half with the back and forth has been extremely frustrating.

I keep telling myself that I am gaining muscle because I have finally gotten serious about strength training. My clothes are fitting better, so I am sure that this is the case. However, my head just can't wrap itself around those numbers. This morning I had the hubby hide the bathroom scale. Yep. I have no idea where it is. That's the only way. I told him to get it back out on the last day of the month. That is when I will weigh myself next. Hopefully, even if the number doesn't go down, by then I will see a more noticeable difference in the way my clothes fit and the way I look. Then maybe I will finally be able to accept whatever number is on the scale.

    I have 69 more pounds to lose, and I was so interested to read your blog today.

I am obsessed with the scale. Just starting weight training, and so maybe switch the scale obsession for an inches obsession.

I know you will get to a place of peace! You can totally do this!

    I'm struggling with this too. I know it's not healthy to weigh daily as it has such a powerful affect on my mood. The effect is crazy. . . I go from walking on air to feeling like a sloth. It is driving me crazy! How did it turn out for you? Your story is similar to mine, except I am in the midst of relosing. UGH!

    I have been weighing pretty much every day to keep myself in check but, just remember those fluctuation days. Don't let them get you down. emoticon

    It would make me crazy to not weigh every day. I'd like to think that the numbers don't bother me - but I know they do to some extent. You can do this.

    I am daily weigher too. Perhaps I should hide my scale too. Something to think about.

Congrats on the weight loss to date! That is awesome!
