Thought wrong!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

I said I would blog today so here it goes and this was the best title I could come up with, w/out being too negative.
I was excited to weigh in this am, Thought I'd done well.
Thought wrong! The scale said no change. Not even one lb!

I drank over 9 glasses of water ea day. I worked out 5 out of 6 days, and burned loads of cals. I wore my HRM everyday. And I tracked everything I ate. Went over my cals only 3 days in 7, and 2 of those were just 50 cals, (thought I'd burned that off)
Thought wrong!

5 of those lbs are the ones I gained while on that quick weekend trip. Thought they would come off quickly. Thought wrong!

I'm tired of struggling w/ my wt and seeing no change in that scale! I'm so tired of being the fat one! I'm tired of being in the 200's or fluctuating close to it. Tired of everyone being shocked that I could run "so fast on the treadmill" being as big as I am. Tired of struggling with my wt! Is it worth it?! I say as I'm finishing my 3rd glass of water today.

I've got lots going on in my life right now. very stressed out, and I'm sooooo frustrated w/ this wt. emoticon
I know that I need to work on the cals. I still could eat better (even though I'm eating 100% better than I was) I might could step it up in the gym, ( I know I need to do better on my ST) and I need to measure ALL my foods. ( I'm bad about guessing) and I need to work on getting a little more sleep on those days that I work. I need to see results soon. Anything!?!

I'll head to the gym today. and keep going for now. But with no motivation except it's the right thing to do. I'm thinking about taking diet pills. I know it's not the way to do it. everything else is going well (water,exercise) but I can't seem to get a handle on this eating and appetite no matter how hard I try. Maybe I just need a little help!?! emoticon
Sorry for all the negativity Sparkers, I'm feeling very stressed and frustrated today.
Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. . . . . .

    Wow, I felt the same way yesterday. Up 3 pounds, no idea why! I was going on and on and DH says, "well you started your period", he was right. But .... I was bummed. This is the thing, when you want the scale to go down and it doesnt its a bummer. When it stays still its a bummer. That is why we have each other on Spark. Are you using the food tracker? I love that thing, strong Behavior Modification effect. Also the recipes are great and easily entered into the tracker. Chin up Spark Buddy! (BTW maybe you started also?)

    I think you answered your own question...
    To quote YOU -
    "know that I need to work on the cals. I still could eat better (even though I'm eating 100% better than I was) I might could step it up in the gym, ( I know I need to do better on my ST) and I need to measure ALL my foods. ( I'm bad about guessing) and I need to work on getting a little more sleep on those days that I work"

    Try that all out and see how you get on. You work really hard also so don't be too hard on yourself.
    I wouldn't bother with diet pills, they're more bad than god. Try and up your protein, I find protein keeps me full.I'm sorry I couldn't help anymore, also sorry I didn't reply sooner. I'm sort of out the bloggin loop at the minute. I 'll be back though
    I wish you a beautiful week.
    Love Kez xXx

    Oh man how many times I have been where you are. Unfortunately I have gotten frustrated and just stopped so many times I have lost count. Don't give into the scale. No matter what the numbers say your body is all the better on the inside if nothing else. My husband get's mad when I say "now honey muscle weighs more than fat", but it is true. You may be gaining muscle and not actually losing weight. Are your clothes fitting different? Keep it up don't let the scale or the stress do you in. You can do this. Show that scale who's boss!! emoticon
    One day at a time.
    Take care and don't quit!

    Yes we all hit those times and often we really do not know the exact reason. Just keep on doing what you are doing as you said you are eating much better that you use to eat. If you were still eating the old way you would not be at this plateau I am sure (if you were like I was) you would be MUCH heavier. those old eating patterns are real KILLERS and that is no joke as you know. Just push through where you are right now. good eating habits and exercise habits show up results in the end. You will be ok. Today maybe you just need to catch up on some rest or sleep that really affects our attitude (especially when we work nights!!!) Hoping that you have a better day tomorrow. don't quit, you will see good results soon You can do this , yes you can! emoticon emoticon
