Surprising weightloss? What weightloss? It was the scales that was wrong!!

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

A couple of days ago, I did a blog where I said I was surprised by my recent weightloss while on holiday. I thought it was due to being trying to abstain from eating fatty foods / chocolate and having a very active week with hiking, cycling, etc, but as it turns out there was no such weightloss! I had weighed myself using new scales and they happen to show me and my mum half a stone lighter then what we truly are! I feel quite cheated by those scales. What is weird is that we bought 2 pairs and both said I was near 11 and half stone!

I shouldn't be so upset really - 20 days ago when I changed my status to 'finally reached 12 stone!', I was happy. Now, I am exactly the same weight but feel so disappointed - I thought I reached my next goal which was 11 and half stone (161 lbs).

My mother was surprised by her true weight but felt that it was good because it spurred her on to not eat so much. I, on the other hand, just feel deflated. I work out a lot, go jogging, and try and watch what I eat but my weight is just not budging. I ordered some stuff off Amazon yesterday including Chalean Extreme, Turbo Jam, some fitness DVDs, resistance bands and the SparkPeople book so at least help is on the way! I know that some people can just lose their excess weight by food alone or by just relying on one exercise (I read the other day a story about a woman who lost 49 lbs by just hula hooping) but I need new things every now again to boost my weightloss and not plateau or become bored. I will get to my ideal weight of 147 lbs eventually but it's hard to keep at it when losing weight can be such a long and hard struggle.

    If you are using the same scale all the time you will be able to record your progress even if it does not correspond with scales at the doctors.

    Thank you CarolJean - I think I do worry too much what the scales say but will read these articles to help not think of them too much. Thank you for taking the time out and suggesting these pages to me - I will definitely check them out!
