So...I'm a lil pissed off right now...

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I did something that I kinda vowed not to do and now I'm a little mad about it. I decided to weigh in (just a peek) to see where I was so that before Fridays weigh in came, I would know where I stand. It appears that I have GAINED two pounds! That's such crap!!! But on the "silver lining" side of it all, I am going to rely on my tape measurements and how good I feel. I have worked my BUTT OFF ever since I started doing this, and last night was NO exception as I literally felt like my workout left me with more GOOD feelings than the "good" feelings overeating ever did! I will remember also a few things, firstly, its not Friday yet, secondly, muscle weighs more than fat, thirdly, inches off and a toned body are sexier than a scrawny one, fourthly, I had lost 8 pounds last week, and that could have been water so technically, if the scale is showing today that I weigh 137, I still lost a total of 6 pounds since I started two weeks ago. That's pretty damn amazing if I do say so myself. If I have inches lost, and that's the only thing, then I will celebrate that! I already know what I will do for my reward! It was awesome celebrating with Rob last week as I treated him to lunch. Maybe this week will be lunch and a movie! Either way...I've worked hard and the scale cannot tell me different!

    Keep going, girl!!! After 5 years of working to lose weight, I have FINALLY learned not to rely on the scale, but the mirror and measurements matter most!! (Especially since I'm back to 14% body fat, but about 15 pounds heavier haha. I'll take muscle over low weight any day!)

    The scale can be a fickle creature. I have gone months working out with out any notable loss. Just keep paying attention to those measurements and how your clothes feel, those are the real changes.

    You are more than a number on a scale. Keep counting all the successes you just listed. Most importantly, you feel good! Keep it up.
