Tired of losing and gaining

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Yall I am so over this. Idk what to do I need help. TOM was here last week and I gained 1.9 lbs. I stepped on the scale after it went off Monday and I was down 1 lb which is nice but shoot im so tired of this. I just wanna lose consistently. I'm tired of the scale soooooo tired and I am working so hard but only down 18-20 lbs since March. I appreciate my progress but this is starting to work my nerves because I am working so hard.

What am I doing wrong?

Monday and Wednesday is normal Zumba
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday I do Turbo Jam or Fire and get some strength training in
Sometimes I go ride the elliptical at the gym or run
I AM SO OVER THIS. Something has to give.

    I usually don't care much what on the scale days before, during and after TOM and especially when I always feel so hungry (something about mood and chemical changes in my body, I guess LOL).

    Anyhow, like SPARKLE1908 said, look at your food/diet and how about your change your workout schedule/plan to spice up things? Last month, my weight reducing consistently 1 kg every week and I think the huge factors are keeping my calories in range and doing my workouts every morning before work instead of night after work.

    Also, if you already reach your healthy weight range, it will be much harder to go to your weight goal!

    Good luck!

    the scale is evil and will drive you crazy!!! emoticon emoticon i refuse to let the scale determine whether or not i am winning this battle. when i am feeling defeated by the scale not moving, i choose to focus on how my clothes are fitting, my healthier eating habits and how i'm feeling. it has been over a month since the scale moved for me, but i refuse to give up. emoticon

    20 pounds since march is amazing! emoticon emoticon

    If you are working out consistently, then you might want to look at your food/diet...that is where my biggest "obstacle" is...but don't give'll come together soon...and congratulations on your weight loss so far!

    the scale flucates especially with tom coming. I relate to that being annoying. sometimes to the weight gain can depend on your sodium intake and other factors sometimes the scale is not accurate.
