Feeling frustrated

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

It's so annoying!!!

I know all about it. I know why this is happening, don't get me wrong. But dang if it isn't one of the most annoying, frustrating pRts of the journey!

You kick things into high gear. You buckle down. Watch what you are eating, like a hawk. You renew your commitment to exercise and you are killing it! ST and cardio. Alternating. Getting it all in.

And you gain weight.
I know about DOMS.
I'm always telling people that it is part of the process.
It sucks.

I can tell there is positive change happening in my body. I'm feeling my code strengthen. I'm feeling my thighs tighten. I'm feeling stronger and my arms feel less "bat wing-y".

But that damn scale doesn't agree and it frustrating.
I know that it means it's time to stay off the scale for a bit, but staying off the scale is how I crept from 140 to 145 to 152. Which is when I decided it was time to fix myself again and get on task with things. But to see 155 after kicking things into high gear and having that feel like that I've got 20 lbs to lose instead of 15... It frustrating.

And that's all I've got to say about that!

    I could have written your blog. I have been at it for four months and the scale won't move. Medications are playing a huge role in my struggle, but I agree, damn...give me a break.

We will keep going because there are changes that are taking place. Good luck
