A little frustrated, but I can do this.

Thursday, January 27, 2011

I'm feeling a little frustrated. I have been on the program for 3 1/2 weeks now and have been doing pretty well. I have been trying to get in at least 10 minutes of exercise every day. I'm building up to the marathon exercise sessions that I see others doing. I did no exercise for the past 2 years and very little for the 20 years before that. So I'm starting off slowly. I'm pretty pleased with what I've been doing. Today I spent 15 minutes going up and down the stairs at work. (See my previous blog for info about that.)

I have been tracking every thing I've been eating, too. And the past 4-5 days I have had no diet soda and no alcohol and I've kept to under my calories.

So I'm pretty frustrated that this morning the scale registered a 1.5 pound gain. NO WAY! FOR REAL??? How is this possible? I have been eating half as many calories as I have for the past 20 years and making sure the calories are nutritious ones. I've been exercising. I've been gulping water like crazy. I've been thinking positive thoughts.

I think this is just karma coming round to get me. I remember one day when I was about 14 and slim and my mom was on a diet. (She was normal sized and probably didn't even need to be on a diet.) She got on the scale and it showed that she had gained a pound. She was amazed since, she told me, she had not eaten one thing the day before. And I laughed. It wasn't a mean laugh, but it was a laugh. And now karma has come to bite me in the butt.

How many times do you think karma will get me back? Do you think I'm done with it?

    It is so hard to stay on track when you know you are doing the right things and the scale shows a gain- I'm really sorry that happened!

    There are so many things that could register the 1.5 lb gain...

    I wouldn't stress about it too much. It is more about how you feel anyway, scales can be deceiving.

    Keep up the good work! emoticon
