Dreaded weigh-in...

Sunday, March 03, 2013

One of my biggest goals in the past five weeks or so has been to weigh in only once during the week, Sunday. But this week I gave in to my own curiosity. About four weeks ago I gained weight during a weigh-in, and I'm guessing it was from the normal pms or period symptoms that we deal with monthly as women...I hate that! So now here I am about four weeks later and am dreading the weigh in this afternoon. Yesterday and the day before I used the scale at the gym (the one I always use) and I hadn't gained anything, but I hadn't lost much either. So I'm not looking forward to this afternoon at the gym. But I do have to stop using the scale so often, it just stresses me out.

I also set up my first meeting with a personal trainer for this week. I'm nervous, as I always am when I think someone might push/pull me from my comfort zone, but I need it as well. So far all of my weight loss has been from my changed diet and cardio but that won't work forever. I really want to have lost 100 pounds by Jan. 1 2014 and that means I have to do strength training and also add variety to my workouts. I know myself well enough to know I have no idea where to start. I watch videos on Sp but when I'm at the gym, I forget it all.

Tuesday is the big day with the trainer, and finding out numbers and measurements according to her. That also makes me nervous!

So today I got ahead in my homework, did all of my cooking for the week and am getting ready for a couple basketball games this afternoon. Between the games, I'll be at the gym! :)

Every day I wonder if what I'm doing will actually stick, and if I can keep going, but then I log onto SP and all of your support and encouragement keeps me going! I know that the days I'm away from my computer are going to be the hardest days but I keep going. Isn't that the name of the game? Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

    Good luck to you! I dread the HLC Spring Weekly Weigh-In for the same reason!! I know we should relax about it, but we're all working really hard and want that scale to move!

    Glad you're sticking with it! Good luck with the trainer.

    Weighing in in the evening is tricky. You've got all your water weight from the day, food somewhere along your intestines... Have you considered weighing in in the mornings? Just a suggestion. Good luck with your trainer, I hope you two click.
