Well that's depressing

Friday, October 04, 2013

I decided last week (I think) that I was only going to weigh in on Friday's. Of course I would obsessively weigh throughout the week but only count Fridays. Well this week I didn't have time to weigh throughout the week so today is the first day i've actually done it. No change in weight, AT ALL. Are you kidding me?! Granted this week has been crazy busy and I haven't had time to walk like I normally would. But that's just making excuses.

And some oddness....every time I weigh....the scale always says something .8 what the hell? Can't I be anything besides .8? I want to be like .2 or .5 but no, not me, I'm always .8. I know, stupid thing to be upset about.

I bought 2 workout dvd's yesterday. I can't remember what they are off the top of my head.... 3 Minute slim down - slim fitness and total body fitness. At least now I'll have something to do in my house without having to go all the way to town to walk. Maybe it will make a difference.

    I find the same problem with the scale as well when I weigh excessively. I kinda cheat when I feel my clothes are way to baggy or loose on me that is when I weigh.

    Don't let that scale stress you out so much. Hang in there!

    Oh yeah, I'm there right now. Working out like a fiend but the scale isn't moving. HOWEVER, like Pattyr81 my clothes are looser and my body is changing. Maybe you could, if you aren't already, take your weekly measurements. Find other indicators of how you're doing besides the scale.

Have a great weekend!

    When my scale didn't move for weeks at a time, I noticed that my body shape changed. I lost inches. Also muscle weighs more than fat, so looking at whole picture rather than scale number helps.

PS: In some societies the number '8' is an EXTREMELY lucky and desirable number. I would look at getting a constant '8' on your scale as a happy and encouraging sign for you from 'the universe' or higher power or angels or whatever you call the larger power outside ourselves.

Happy Day!

  Do be discouraged. Next week will very likely be different. I love to work out at home because I know I will get it done. Thanks for sharing.
