The slightly whiny blog..

Friday, July 26, 2013

Okay, actually this is a full-out whiny blog. I want to complain and complain and complain. emoticon

But I won't.

emoticon Okay, maybe just a little. I've been working out and eating right but that scale won't move. So then I think what's the point. I'm stressed out about so many things as it is. So why add the additional stress of finding a time to workout..and make that extra effort to cut up those fruits and veggies when it isn't going to make a difference.

But it will..or at least I hope it will.. emoticon Sigh..lessons in persistence.

End of whiny blog. emoticon emoticon

    Oh, boy! I guess we all know just how you feel. Look how many rushed to the pity party without even being invited! Me too of course!
Those scales are so tricky!!! But eventually, eventually they have to yield. And when they do, we'll be standing there LAUGHING because we didn't give up!

    Nothing wrong with a good whine from time to time! emoticon

Don't give up!

1) Have a look at your nutrition: are you eating enough for your level of activity?
2) Look at your measurements: Your scale may not be moving but are they?
3) Throw your scale out of the window!! emoticon emoticon Only joking!! emoticon

    We must have the same scale! Articles tell us that stress will keep or put pounds on. Maybe there is something to it! But it's so hard to not stress when we put so much into eating and exercising right.

    About twice a month (sometimes three times), I consume my maintenance calories rather than my weight loss calories. It ends up being about 500 more calories. I find it jump starts my metabolism. Take your target weight & multiply times 12 (heard this one on Dr. Oz's show). If you want to weigh 150 # , consume 1800 healthy calories for just one day but make sure that it is 4 to 5 days before a weigh in. It shouldn't cause any weight gain because it is your maintenance calories & as long as you stick to healthy calories (no junk food), you should be fine! I have a friend who does this 2 times a week & she is losing 1 # a week (I want to lose 2 # a week).

Hope this works for you too!

    It will. The scale is fickle. Go by how you feel and how your clothes fit too. Those healthy choices have other benefits too!

    I'm sorry your scale isn't cooperating.

I know I have seen articles about that subject on SP. Maybe a quick search will yield some help for you!

But, feel free to whine away. But, stick to it!

    It is so hard for that scale to move sometimes, but keep your chin up, that S. O. B. will move, in it's sweet old time, unfortunately!

    NSVs are also important, be patient you never put weight on overnight, nor will it come off that way either. Keep at it, you are doing great!! emoticon

    You can do it! Even if the scale isn't moving, you're still making yourself healthier! Keep it up!

  It will make a difference. Be patient. It's worth all the time & effort.
