...its your TOM!
I was feeling good this week, had a great step class on Monday and even ran to the gym that evening. Yesterday, I stepped on the scale (day 3 of TOM) and GAH! Let's just leave it at that. There was a 3-4 pound increase since Sunday. I am HOPING it is water from the witch but who knows. I headed out to Kohl's last night to try some new clothes on. I figured that might make me feel better, getting some things that fit nicer. My pants are too big so they look sloppy (all 2 pairs) and I am overwearing my 2 dresses. I have very little in the realm of clothes these days. I figured since my 14s are too big, I gotta be in a 12 even if they are a bit snug. I have one pair of Old Navy 12s that fit fine, I'm wearing them right now actually. So, since it was near closing, I grabbed my clothes and checked out, figuring I would just return what didn't fit. I assumed I would have at least some luck. W R O N G ! ! ! Let's just say that the fashion show I put on for the hubs when I got home left me feeling fat and in tears. I haven't cried over my weight in a long time, I thought I was over that and stronger than that.
I'm feeling really bad about myself right now. Clearly what I am doing (or not doing) is not working and I am at a loss now. I had such great luck when I was going to Curves 3x a week. I switched to the Y and I can't seem to get back to my losing, weight or inches. I don't want to switch back to Curves for personal reasons but I want those results! I love my Step class and everything the Y has to offer but nothing's happening! I don't have the money for a trainer either—the Y is expensive enough as is.
I'm sorry, I'm just having a bit of a pity party for myself. I hate not feeling comfortable about myself. I rocked it last year and now its like I am back to square one.
