Bought a new scale...

Saturday, September 15, 2012

and it's just as demonic as the old one! emoticon

I'm a little discouraged right now and also just feeling down. Still not recovered from yesterday although I slept for about 10 hours. Which is probably why I'm feeling blah now. Sleeping in that late makes me feel tired for the entire day.

I'm discouraged cause I bought a new scale, set it all up and ... it tells me I gained 2 lbs. I've been so freakin' GOOD this week: barely any snacking and the snacks I've had were healthy, drinking my water, eating healthy portions, and exercising.

Truth time: Yes, I did exercise this week, but I did not follow my schedule and some days, I just didn't do any serious exercising. I'm still working on finding an exercise schedule that fits my needs.

I know it's not going to be easy and it's not going to happen in a week, but darn it! I just want to see something positive for my efforts. I know I'm making better choices and taking steps to lose the weight, but is it enough? Do I have to do more? Do I have to eat less? Do I have to ramp up the intensity in my workouts? Do I have to at least follow my current workout schedule? I haven't even started and I feel like I've hit a wall already.

Off to re-work my exercise schedule. Tomorrow will be a better and more positive day!

    I'm so sorry you're feeling discouraged :( It's entirely possible though that your weight didn't actually change at all. Maybe the old scale was just 2 pounds off? And while itlll still look like a gain when you log your weight here, and it's still annoying to see that number, it's not a reflection of your actually progress.

    As far as doing more/eating less as a solution. Don't forget to stick in your sparkpeople calorie ranges. Eating less isn't always the solution, especially when you're increasing exercise.

    Stick with it and you'll do great! This is a tiny bump, not enough to derail everything! emoticon
