Now I see how I got this big....

Monday, June 22, 2009

Oh boy. I've spent the past two weeks without any red meat or dairy. AND. I. GAINED. A. POUND. AND. A. HALF. You don't even know how bad that sucks. I stayed within my calorie range, and all my other ranges, too,I ate really good, no sweets to speak of, and I felt GREAT! Thought to myself, MAN! you must have lost 5 lbs. this week!! I felt so good about what I was doing, and I hardly even missed the red meat and dairy. I exercised nearly everyday, for at LEAST 15-20 minutes. Then I got up Saturday morning, and weighed. HOLY COW!! 273.4. FUUUUUUUUUUUC-K. all the air went out of my balloon.

I know. Muscle weighs more, the exercising everyday is probably what did it, sometimes you gain before you lose, I already told myself all the LOGICAL, sane reasons. But that doesn't keep the little kid in me from STOMPING UP AND DOWN, SCREAMING at the top of her spoiled little lungs, NOT FAIR! NOT FAIR! NOT FAIR! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Whew! that feels better. Now. I'm still going to stay off the dairy, because I don't feel so mucous-y, and I don't wake up in the morning with a wad of phlem in my throat. So I see the benefits of that. And I'm taking a calcium supplement to make sure I'm getting enough. As for the red meat, well, I think it is better for my liver if I limit it to once every couple weeks or so. We've been increasing our consumption of wild-caught fish from Costco, and we go down to the wharf here and get other wild caught fish, so I think that is better for both of us than red meat. And I think I might have to change my fitness goals again. But DAM-MIT!!! I really, really, really wanted to be below 270 this week. And I only had TWO POUNDS TO GO to reach that little short goal.

Arggggggggggh!!! emoticon

Oh--oops--I forgot what I actually started writing this about! hehehe Yesterday, I was so discouraged, and it was Father's Day, so the husbeast and I drove down to this little greasy spoon place that he likes on the coast, and I had a cheeseburger. Then we came home and later on he went out and got KENTUCKY FRIED of all things. This is his first Father's Day without his father--he passed away Thanksgiving. So he was all fiddle-faddled yesterday and he is an emotional eater. I didn't make a fuss--I ate right along with him. A 3000 calorie day. With just coleslaw and fake mashed potatoes for vegetables all day. I DID drink my vegetable juice for breakfast, though, so I guess that is better than nothing. But WOW. I can see how I got this big, by eating like that everyday like we used to. Uggggh.

    Hang in there. All of those logical explanations are valid if you have been on task with your eats and exercise.

    If it makes you feel any better, I gained 2 lbs in the first three weeks of my current program as I started lifting weights again, and I'm just now getting back to my STARTING weight. I never expect to lose until weeks 4-6 of a new program.

    I know how tough it is to say screw it, I'm tired of all of this. I'm sorry the scale isn't showing your progress. emoticon Maybe your body was just making up for losing almost 5 lbs last week?
    What about your energy level?? How's that? Was it high this week? What about getting through all that excercising? Was it as tough as it used to be? Did you wanna scream and stomp your feet about it?
    I want to be your awesome, non-overly-peppy cheerleader. Wooo!! You can do it. Just think about how healthy you are getting. I hate scales and I don't have one.
    Can we go all office space on yours? hehe
