Saturday Depression and Turn Around

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Well, I woke up and stepped on the scale and it "said" I gained 3 pounds. I don't even know how that could be physically possible. But, last Saturday I had gone down to 157, today 160. Not happy. Totally not happy. I have decided to not let it bother me. I mean sure, I will continue to do what I know is right, but, I can only do so much and I can not let the scale define me and my happiness. I have lost before, I will continue to lose. It is almost "that time".

I spent the day babysitting my best friends 18 month old little boy. He is a joy. We played "tag" and then we took a little nap together. Him asleep on my lap. It made up for the depression. I took a day off from the exercise. I just walked a little and played with the boy. It felt good. I think I needed that.

Come Monday I am going back to my old "routine. I am only going to do 2 hours of exercise and eat 1,200 calories.

    Scales can only tell you what you weigh at that moment. It doesn't take into account what you have eaten on drank before you stepped on it.

    It sounds like you had a fun day babysitting and you got in your exercise by playing with him.

    Therefore, it sounds like you had a great day!!! emoticon

    don't let the numbers get you down. somedays I step on the scale in the morning and see onething, and later the same day there can be a 2-3 lb shift either up or down. I won't record a low number until I see it on the scale 3 times in a week. Hormones AREN'T a girl's best friend. all I know for certain is that healthy choices = no regrets and they pay off in the long run. your life is full of healthy choices

    Wow, that's always so annoying when the scale shows a gain and you know it just can't be right. Don't let it get you down. emoticon

    Maybe you are retaining water. That has happened to me before.
