From high to low because of the scale- Any Advice?

Monday, December 23, 2013

Argh. I was feeling motivated, focused and goal oriented. I snowboarded Saturday and was feeling strong. Then this morning, I stepped on the scale to do my weekly weigh-in and I gained three pounds. Three pounds! I just felt so defeated, deflated. I still feel that way. I didn't eat well today nor worked out. I will get up again tomorrow and continue my fight, but today... I just felt blah.

Would you take off looking at the scale for a few weeks? Or do you have any other advice?

    Unless ur weighing in daily for it's help,,, and it stays steady from day to day,,, (going down a little each day or up) I'd NOT do that, but that's what I DO for it helps me ,, to stay within my eating range for cals.

    On a weekly basis the weigh in,,, plz remember we ARE females,,,,, and so our bodies do things at "that time" and we DO GAIN during it,, or right b4 it,,,, so that may be why? Also if ur snowboarding (WISH I COULD !) that builds UP Muscles,, and muscles weigh more,, so my advice is to look for the NSV !! WOOHOOO the "Non Scale Victories" are such things,, as how do my clothes fit? Getting bigger for me? Have I taken my measurements of waist, hips, arms, legs? Are they going down MONTHY?

    Are you making HEALTHIER choices,,, such as now drinking water, if you were a soda drinkah? Eating more freggies (Fruits/Veggies) than b4 you started along this route? All of these are GREAT as well as moving around more,,,and easier.

    So I hope this helps?
