Tomorrow: The Dreaded Weigh-In Day

Monday, August 08, 2011 it Monday already?? Where did this week go?? Did I exercise enough?? Did I eat healthy enough?? Did I honestly di everything I could to lose weight??

Or did I end up sabotaging myself like I usually do. I forgot to input my weight last week onto my tracker so it still reflects a weight of 223 when in reality it should read 228. So even if I lost weight this week, it won't reflect fact it will show that I gained...which hopefully won't set me back in my hard work.

I am trying so hard to lose weight. I am in fact beginning to obsess with what I eat and how much I exercise. It's not easy, as I am on Day 23 of my menstruation. The doctor has no clue what is going on. So I am constantly bloated and crampy...which makes exercising some days feel like such a chore and undoable.

So...I will do my Rookie 5K program (Week 2 Day 1...woo hoo) in the morning. Then come home and weigh myself and start plugging in the numbers in all my teams I am in right now. I hope that it reflects a loss, as a gain will just cause me to obsess even more.

But, for now, I will go get a few hours of sleep. A few measely hours of sleep, as I will probably be tossing and turning, worrying about weigh-in day tomorrow...which stress in a body that has a weigh-in is not a good thing, lol. But...I ramble....good night. And sweet dreams to one and all.

    @ HOPE...I certainly did have myself psyched out. I was positive it was going to show a weight gain. Wow...was I surprised.

    @ DISPATCHER...I am definitely done having children. I had a tubal done back in May. And I have been pretty much bleeding since then. Today made day 24 so I called the doctor again, and no one could return my phone call for whatever reason. The nurse told me she didn't feel it was anything to worry about, but not to run for it could be making the bleeding worse right now. She also said that I could be in the beginning stages of menapause. One of my friends had an ablasion as well...and she told me to tell my doctor that I want it done. But my doctor will only do what he feels like doing. All I know is that this bleeding is getting old real quick!

    Day 23! That's awful. Your dr. has nothing to offer? You must not be done with childbearing, or I bet they would recommend ablation. That is the best. thing. ever.

    I hope you feel better. Keep running. It's a great stress buster! And try to get plenty of sleep. It's amazing how the scale will hold the pounds hostage if you don't get enough sleep.

    Well I see on your spark status that you DID lose weight which means you did awesome this week because you lost a little over 5 pounds! Thats amazing!

    You can do this dont worry, stop doubting yourself because you ARE doing everything that you are supposed to and its definitely showing on the scale!!

    emoticon Many of us have those dread the scale times. We know the big idea is to not let it become a habit. I can go out of control and then have to fight my way back. That is wht I am doing right now. I have 5 more pounds to get to my recent low weight , and then 10 to get to my all time low Spark weight.
    Spark tells us to accept times like this and then turn them into an upward spiral. You have health problems that affect you. And I pray you get over them soon.
