setback, but still determined (UPDATED)

Friday, August 15, 2008

Well, go figure. I did pretty good all week and to what end? A one pound GAIN. What gives? Well, actually I know what it is. Today is first day of tom. So, I'm really not accepting this weigh in. I'm not changing my ticker and I'm not going to let this get to me. I KNOW the reason for it. I can't drink enough water to rid myself of the fluid retention I suffer through during this time. I'm going to keep on keeping on and next weigh in will hopefully be more truthful... oh, btw, due to the encouragement of a good friend, I have measured and did learn that overall, I've lost nearly 2 inches this week. That's a plus.

Hugs to all my sparkfriends!

8/16/08 update.... I weighed in this morning, just curious at where day 2 of tom puts me... expecting to be the same, or maybe even up, and to my joyous surprise... I was down 2.5 pounds from yesterday! 191.0!! wow. That looks a lot better, and I'm back on track to meet my weekly goals! Woohoo!

    WTG!!! I'm so glad you didn't let the TOM weigh-in get you down. Whenever the scale isn't looking good, I look to how my clothes fit and just look at my body in general. So congratulations on the pounds and inches lost.

    Renee, I heard that you get a bunch of women together in one place (like school, dorm...) and they'll all start their cycles at around the same time... but sheesh, we're no where near each other and you started today too?
    I was thinking the same thing. I didn't hardly eat anything yesterday and then I get on the scale today, only to see I gained .8 lb since yesterday! That brought me up to a wopping 3.2 lbs gain since last WI!!!! So bask in your 1 lb gain, gurrl! LOL You're doing good!
    And way to go on your inches lost!!! Work it, gurrl!
