Not a deterrent!

Friday, August 22, 2008

Ok... I weighed in and... I'm up a pound from Saturday. bummer. Thought I'd be down a pound at least and a half pound ahead of my goal, but NO... I'm a pound up and so therefore 1.5 pounds behind my goal... Grrrrrrr!

OK... maybe the scales aren't truthful again, maybe I'm retaining water, I have had swollen ankles all week, but I did drink a LOT of water. Maybe I just need to go to the bathroom LOL (tmi? sorry) Maybe I didn't hold my mouth right... or would my one BAD day this week still be showing up on the scales? That was Monday! that would sooooo not be fair cause I got right back on track and stayed in my personal numbers range. Ok... that's not totally true actually. I've not gotten in ANY exercise this week. Rain rain rain and just didn't feel like the treadmill.... **sigh** Most likely it's a combination of it all. I think I'll go back to my daily weigh ins...

Overall, this is not a deterrent to my dieting. It's a bummer, yes, but I will work harder to make up for my being behind and catch up to where I should be. I'll keep updating.

First week of school was hectic, it will take a while for us to establish a good working routine... trial and error.

I'm not gone, so please don't forget me LOL! I'll be popping in now and then to track and if I have time to post a little, but like I said... no routine and with 4 kids and homework already... I am totally pooped by 8! :)


Saturday 191
today 192 (goal was 190.5! all I had to do was lose a measly half pound this week... but nooooo... I GAINED a pound. :( emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Don't rely too heavily on your scales...if your eating right and exercising the weight will eventually go down.

    Don't sweat it Renee - there are so many factors that could have caused the gain. I would put my money on the lack of exercise. If you are using the SP calorie ranges, they take into account your projected calories burned. For instance, I didn't really work out this week but I stayed within my range. Well that range is based on me burning 3,000 calories a week and I probably hit 1,000.

    So stay encouraged - you know the recipe for weight loss and you will get back on track.

    Stay Blessed!!!

    It could be water, don't let it get you down! I miss seeing you in the teams, but I totally understand. School starts here next week, then preschool for little man. I can't wait!

    Glad to see you aren't really upset. Just keep at it, and add that treadmill, even in little workouts, it will help! I know you can do it girl!!
