Finding My Groove

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Sometimes no matter how hard you work, you hit a plateau. Or even, in my case, some times you still gain weight. January started out great. My first weigh-in I was down three pounds. The next time, I didn't lose at all. This time, I've gained four pounds (technically, 3.6).

I'm not going to let this get to me. I weigh every day, and there's usually some up and down within a pound or two. However, looking back at other weigh ins, I have noticed that I do gain just before that time of the month. So, I'm hoping for AF this week and prove my theory.

In addition, it's just that much more wood on the fire. I've been good this week, and most of the month. I'm not going to let this little setback derail how well I've been doing with my eating and exercise. I'm going to continue working on my eating habits, and exercise, taking vitamins, and all that other good stuff.

So, now I'm going to go workout and do some yard work.

    You're doing great! That use to happen to me. I normally sit down after my weigh in and just think about what I did. Did I track correctly? Am I drinking more or less water? Too many carbs? Eating too little or too much? It is really self motivating that yeah, I might have gained, but I have a plan for next week to help it a bit.

    I do weigh myself daily. I like seeing how my body fluctuates, because it helps me understand how my body changes from day to day, and makes me feel a bit better if I didn't lose much weight on weigh in day. I try my best to weigh in on Saturdays, but truth be told, I normally way less on Wednesday than any other day surprisingly, and after that I gain a bit up to Saturday. Just some food for thought! :) So don't feel bad, gaining weight happens to all of us at one point or another.

    You're doing super awesome, just pick yourself up and re-evaluate your game plan and switch it up a bit. :) Keep it up!

    A workout and yard work sounds like a great plan to keep moving forward. You have a good attitude.

    Also remember that our body naturally weight fluctuates which is one reason we are advised to weigh once a week. Your looking for a long-term sustainable weight loss over time. You might want to try weighing a little less often to see if it affects your motivation.

    I definitely weigh a few pounds more when I get my period.
