7th Weigh-In... Yikes!!!

Monday, June 02, 2008

well... i weighed in on saturday and according to the scale I gained 4.2 lbs in a week!!! :-( i'm not too happy about this, to say the least. i couldn't believe my eyes. how the hell could i gain 4 lbs in a week. it took me 2 weeks to lose 4 lbs, and i gain it back in 1 week. this is sooooo not right.

i was really depressed after weighing in. i was on a roll and now a setback. not going to let it get me down.

i do realize that it was a holiday weekend and i did splurge here and there, but not so much that i would gain 4 lbs. I kept up with my workouts and even did more that what i have planned, for cryin' out loud!!!

i'm not going to let this get to me. i'm just sticking to my plan and no more splurging (this week anyway).

    Sorry you are having a setback. I know it's easy to let the scale bring ya down, but there are so many other ways to measure your success. But I know you know that!. emoticon

    I pitched my scale. I only weight in once a month at Curves. I did it for my sanity and my mental health. Sounds kind of funny but I am serious. I don't mean that you need to pitch yours but it might help to put it away for a little while.

    Keep your head up high and never give up! You've been doing really well.

    Take care,

    (((hugs)))) i know how frustrating the scale can be! i have been there!! have you been drinking enough water? watching your sodium levels? it is so easy to retain water = gain false weight. i would just put the scale away and not get it back out until your next weigh in. remind yourself why you are doing this and i am sure it is for more than a number :)
    hang in there!! you are doing a great job!!
