Either Or

Sunday, April 14, 2013

Yesterday I was super excited about being 169. I had such plans to get down to 165. Than, this morning I was back at 170.4. I am so frustrated and bummed. I have been bouncing around 170 for months. I am done. A few days ago, I was excited to see 170.0. I could get to the 160s. So, I exercised the two days after and now I am back at 170.

It seems like it is either focus on food or focus on exercise. Whenever I try to do both, I seem like a failure. When I started to focus on food a few weeks back that is when I was able to kick five pounds to the curb. In fact, that seems like that is the only time I can lose weight.

Anyhow, I know this 170 is not a terrible number but I think I am more bothered what it means to me. In a sense, I had failed at maintained. I am still working on it. It's food for thought, nonetheless!

    Hang in there. You will do it! Losing can be so frustrating when you bounce around and think you have gone to a new weight. Today is a new day.

    Hang in there... You can do this! Don't forget there are a lot of factors that can bounce your weight around like this.... Water retention, muscle building, etc... You know what works, and you know it doesn't happen overnight. Hang in there... I know it's frustrating, but you know that what you're doing is worth doing. I'm here for you and cheering you on!!!

    My dear, you DO need to focus on both! Weighing/measuring and tracking foos is really important. So is consistent exercise. THAT'S the part that needs to be part of the equation . . . consistency. Hard? Well you KNOW it is. Impossible? No . . . rather I'm Possible!
