So, in the last few days, I've watched the number on the scale slowly climb up each day.
Not the progress I was looking for exactly. I've been doing great with meeting my weekly goals for nutrition and fitness and still have room to improve. So why the increase in the number the scale reports?
Part of me thinks that in the week before and during my period, I gain a few pounds, which are then shed after. This is really frustrating to me, as I'm watching all my hard work of the past few weeks seemingly slip away with another two weeks of hard work coming up just to get back to where I was. Recycle, repeat, again and again. The joy of being a woman
*sigh* I have been framing this as positively as I could all day, but I really am feeling frustrated. Why am I bothering to do any of this if I'm always coming back to the same place? I WANT TO GET TO MY GOAL, not stay where I am. I have a different homeostatic point and I want to get to it. I know that this is not where my body is supposed to stay weight-wise and I want the little voice in the back of my head that keeps whispering, "But this really could be where you just are going to be forever," to shut up.
Grrrrrrr - okay, done whining now. I know that I just need to keep up with my daily habits and I'll get to my goal. This isn't happening overnight and if I just stick with it, it will happen.
