Just yesterday I posted a blog about being down two pounds and weighing in at 213.8. Today, I weighed in at 216. There is no way, Jose, that I gained THREE pounds over night. I know it was too much mac and cheese and salted pretzels.

I am so frustrated and mad. Frustrated at myself for weighing in. I am now measuring my tummy measures the same so I don't know what that dumb scale is talking about. Mad at society for making women feel less worthy because they are overweight.

To add salt to injury, my boyfriend invited me to the movie, Jersey Boys, with his dad, brother, uncle, and family friend. I am the only girl that goes but I always enjoy myself. They are genuinely nice people. This means we will have pizza and popcorn. I have only ate breakfast (got up at 11 am) and I worked out today so I hope it balances out.

Somehow it always seems to happen. I lose two pounds. I get excited and hopeful. Tell a friend. Than, I gain it back. I really need/want to lose this weight.

Just frustrated. And, wanted to share.

    I've been doing pretty well too but the scale sure didn't show it this morning. Frustrating, yes, but we'll keep at it!

    First of all, you know all about water weight. It takes several days to work it's way out of your system. Is there any way you could have a healthy meal prior to going to the movie so you're not tempted? Just a thought.

    You know what to do and you'll do what is right, I know.

    Weighing in daily is for the birds. Weight simply fluctuate with so many factors. Not to worry. You’re so wise to be tracking well to make sure you continue to ultimately make progress. Keep your thinking positive even during the rough times and you’ll find greater joy in the entire process. Hug, hug - Evelyn
