Fell off the roundabout and ended up on the see-saw...

Saturday, August 10, 2013


Up 0.1 kg this week. so I'm 73.8 kgs. Have been bouncing around this again for 2 months now. My short blog is a sign that I'm not a happy camper. I have spent the months trying to zig zag exercise and diet but no real change on weigh in day -have been up to 75 and down to 73.
I feel like my body has beaten me :) daughter and hubby say "you are nuts:)". Your body is not in charge.

Have gone back to basics and worked out my BMR and advised cals. Will work on this this week and see how I go. Hoping everyone is too busy to read this really-- -don't like to not be "UP" .

Hope to have some good news next week.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Hang in there! The body has to give in at some point. Maybe a nice type of exercise would help!
I have hit so many plateaus and tried so many different things and got no where! So, the key is to keep going! Because to give up is to fail and you know what would happen then, we would start gaining and be back to the beginning and have more to lose! So don't be so hard on yourself. And don't listen to the nay sayers! You are doing great!! You are here and we appreciate hearing from you! Up or down, that is what blogging is all about. We are here for you!

    I bounce around too. When you have done so well it is okay to take a few days off here and there. You will get back on track HUGS emoticon

    Don't worry too much about it - everybody gets "stuck" temporarily at some point. All of a sudden, the numbers will start moving again. In the meantime, your body is just making a nice challenge to test your motivation and your patience and your creativity and your strategic thinking! :)

    I don't seem to be making any progress on the scale either, but I know that I am feeling more fit and healthy in spite of my stubborn scale! hopefully someday soon you will see that jump (DOWN!) that you are waiting for!

    This is a bump in the road and not the results of your whole journey. emoticon Keep your chin up and stay focused on your goals. emoticon emoticon Hugs, Jeanne

    I like your analogy of weight loss with playground equipment. I have been bouncing around also. Can be up about 3 lbs in one day, and next day back down. I don't know what's going on. I will work on it with you!

    I'm back to the drawing board as well. I put my jeans on today, and they were snug. So don't give up the boat. We can do this!!

    This too shall pass. So .1 kg works out to about 3.5 ounces (I suck at math, so I may be wrong here) which is about .4 lb. I know all too well how that feels as I have only lost 8 lbs in the last year. (August 12 last year I hit 217.2, today I am 209.2). In that time I have bounced back and forth, up a little, down a little, but no consistency. I feel your pain!

If going back to basics doesn't work out, try going in a completely different direction. Try a veggie only diet for a week or two, or clear soups only. Something to really change things up!!

So keep your chin up, throw a shrimp on the barbie, have a pint of Fosters and don't let the dingo eat your baby! (thought I'd throw a couple of classic Australianisms at you there!)
