Trying to remain upbeat

Monday, August 05, 2013

Four weeks in an the scales have come to a standstill - it was my birthday last week and I really maintained control over my eating. Everything was counted, I carried on with my two hours of walking per day but my weight remained the same. I won't let it bother me unduly - I've checked my food intake, no treats I've forgotten to count. I just have to believe this will show on the scales next week along with all the walking. At least my chocolate Labrador Muddy's a very happy dog -at the moment he's getting three walks a day!,,

    Good for you for keeping a cool head. We're not machines that fill and empty at a fixed rate. Your cells are constantly in flux, including those pesky fat cells. Keep looking for those NonScaleVictories and just keep doing what's been working.

    One tip I've seen work many times is to slightly increase your water intake for a few days. Good hydration actually ENCOURAGES your body to release stored water, including some water that it is storing in those fat cells as placeholders for the now-missing fat. What usually results is what some low-carbers refer to as a WHOOSH of loss.

    Have you thought about just getting rid of the scale even if it is just out of sight? I keep mine under the bed and when I actually dust/vacuum under the bed is when I check my weight. Trying not getting on the scales for one month and just use the measuring tape along with food for me and is a lot less stress in the long run!
