Here we go again...

Saturday, July 21, 2012

So I gained two pounds this week :( I am really upset by this...I haven't been watching my food as closely as I should have, so that's probably why, but I have been exercising more, so I guess I thought they would balance out. The worst part is that not only am I messing myself up, but I feel like I'm messing my team up in our summer challenge by bringing down the weigh-in! Argh. So I guess I'm going to try to really step it up this week...try to swim or go to the gym every day and really be careful about what I eat.

I had a health issue back in April that resulted in surgery in May, and while I was sick I lost like 10 pounds. However, since I recovered from the surgery I've had a very hard time eating right. I ate like a bird while I was sick, and I think my body just wants to make up for lost time. I'm hungry all the time. Needless to say, I gained back the 10 pounds and now an additional 2. I'm feeling really incredibly frustrated. I've been working at losing weight since 2009 and now I'm only 8 pounds away from being back where I started. It feels today like these whole three years have been a waste of time, and I've been working hard for nothing.

I know I will probably feel better in a few days, but today it feels so depressing.

    Just know that you have a ton of strong Daisies out here rooting for you. Don't let one bad weigh-in ruin all the progress you've made. That dumb scale shouldn't have that much power.

    You can do it!!
