Screw you scale!

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Up a pound?? Really?? I've been busting my a$$ 90 minutes a day, 6 days a week and I gained a pound!?!?! I have been working so hard, I haven't lost anything, I gained weight in the first three weeks after I had Paige then I got serious about losing it and in a month the only change is gaining a pound!

Yes, logically I know, muscle weighs more than fat, I am only 2 months postpartum, I can't cut calories because of breastfeeding, it took 9 months to put on and will take time to work off...

...... but SERIOUSLY?!?!

Ok.. moment has past, pity party is over.. back to working out... the weight will come off.. the weight will come off.

    I'm not brestfeeding and I still only lose a few oz. a month and at times I go months without losing anything. But....when I put on clothes that is where I notice the difference. Don't give up you'll notice changes soon even if not on the scale. Good luck.

    We were just talking about this in the group...

    With BF'ing the weight is going to be a lot slower due to the # of calories you have to intake to keep up your supply and I believe with the hormones you may keep your fat stores and those last 5-10 pounds are the hardest until you are done BF'ing...do the numbers and you'll see there isnt much of a differential to "lose" if you need to burn through 3500 calories a week to lose 1 pound. I think I've lost MAYBE 1 pound a month so far since the BIG weight amount came off and stabilized...

    I know it's hard, but try to be patient with yourself. Like you said, it took 9 months to gain the weight, it will take time to lose it. Take one day at a time.

    Sorry to burst your bubble here!:( BUT, a pound is a pound! What your experiencing is more likely fluid from muscle building! It WILL go away. And think of it this way. A pound WEIGHS the same as fat BUT muscle takes up less room. With a brand new baby your health and strength are so much more important. Put the scale away and look at baby instead. If I was lucky enough to have ever had one I know that's what I would concentrate on!:))

    Congratulations on your new miracle! You VERY LUCKY!!! Please take no offense at my comment. It took me FOREVER to realize the # is A # thing! emoticon
