I refuse to let the scale own me.
Thursday, May 29, 2014
I have been really bummed out for the last three weeks and I know why even though I'm having trouble admitting it. After over two years of maintaining a one pound range around my goal weight for some reason the scale has started to move in the wrong direction. In the last three weeks I've gained 3 pounds.
I know that doesn't sound like the end of the world but I am a person who really respects trends and I am trending upwards.
Logically, I know that this small increase is not really a trend yet. There are plenty of Sparkers that swing back and forth by a lot more and probably hate me for appearing to find maintenance so easy. I am so much luckier than so many of my Spark Friends. But, since I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong I'm afraid it's not going to stop.
So I've switched up my diet and fitness. I've added some more strength exercises and I got back out all of my measuring stuff so I can go back to stricter portion control.
I am going to step away from scale for a couple of weeks between 5% challenges since it is messing with me so much and hopefully I'll be able to get back where I belong.
