Anybody else have these days???

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

This is going to be quick since I am short on time but I am about to scream so I have to get this out of my head...
Ever have one of those mornings where you just 'feel fat'? LIke you know you shouldn't even get on the scale? But of course I do it anyway and now here I sit feeling worthless and frustrated. I am up 3 lbs since Sunday!!!! What the heck?????
Now even though I know this isn't true weight gain it still makes me sick to my stomach. I can feel that I am bloated this morning. I can see that I am bloated..
Not really sure what to pin it on. I had a decent supper last night, I had more than 1 serving of each but I had a lighter calorie day & planned for a good supper since I knew I would be starving from my run. So maybe that was it? Or was it the combination of what I had for dinner? Mini Meatloaf with roasted baby red potatoes and a small serving of left over home made mac & cheese? Or was it the cursed piece of banana bread I had for dessert?? The only other thing I can thin of is that I haven't really been behaving when it comes to my weakness to fountain pop. I know I need to behave more when it comes to that for sure. Its 0 calories but I know it still isn't good for you.
Whatever it was I don't like it!!!! And now it has set my mood for the day... :(

    I just had that a couple of days ago. I was up two pounds all of a sudden. I know that is was due to the pizza and tortilla chips that I had eaten. I had stayed within my range but the sodium killed me. It was gone the next day though.

    Thanks girls! I feel somewhat better. I can tell I'm not as bloated/uncomfortable as I was earlier. Today isn't even my weigh in day but sometimes I have a bad habit of peeking. I know our weight fluctuates constantly in response to many things. I also know the scale doesn't define me. It's how I feel, how my clothes fit, etc. All which told me this morning to skip the peek because it's only going to deflate you. Duh.....
    So the next time the little voice in my head is telling me to Back Off maybe I will listen.
    Have a great day & thanks for being such awesome, supportive friends! This is what I have been missing & needing. emoticon emoticon

    I experienced the same thing! I was only down 0.8lbs this week and I did pretty good! I have a weakness for soda also, but my portions were smaller, I worked out every day, I don't know what the hell went wrong! But, as women our bodies are always retaining some type of fluid or water and everything fluctuates so much, don't let it get you down.

    This is funny that I just read this blog. I literally just stepped off the scale from doing the same thing. I am up two pounds. I am on day 5 on no pop but I gave my Paramedic students a free skip quiz day if they catch me with it, so I am trying extra hard. I am having one of those days as well. I know it wont make you feel better, but it made me feel better to know someone else was going through the exact same thing at the exact same time. In some way..I don't feel so bad right now because I know it's just one of those things and it will go away. Keep your head up. WE WILL get through this!!!

    Yes. I absolutely have. And frankly that's why I'm going with the calorie deficit and tape measure this time around. Because I couldn't deal with the feeling of absolute defeat when that happened to me.

    Try to keep it in perspective. (I know that's tough) It's not your weigh in day. That's why the general guidance is to weigh yourself once a week, so you get the smoothing over time effect rather than the daily bounces. If you're doing the right things, staying within your calorie range, getting exercise, and drinking water, the weight WILL come off. Hang in there. I know what happened this morning sucks. Try to find some non weight related good in today and let it improve your mood.
