Taking a toll

Monday, February 10, 2014

So the scale is taking a toll on my mood... Fi keeps losing and losing and I feel like I am doing more then he is and the scale has not moved except up in pounds in ten days.

The scale not moving is effecting my mood. I am short tempered, I am moody and I am not catching what is leaving my mouth until its too late. I know the scale just has a number on it and it should not matter but this is month two and I expected to lose more when I monitor every single thing I eat and gave up everything but water and one cup of coffee a week.. Yes, I said week, not day. I am monitoring my sugar intake and it wont come off. I work out an hour a day, 6 days a week and my rest day I am still stretching and doing stuff.

I really am just so lost.

    Thank you two... I am taking measurements. They are going down... I see a difference in some spots... My wedding dress measurements are my go to spots and in one month, I have lost three inches all over.

    I am watching everything I eat with My fitness pal. I do not eat until its logged and I weight the pros and cons of eating it. I portion everything as well... I have measuring cups at home and measure stuff out. When I am out to eat, I do my best.

    I am feeling better... If it is still bad next week, I am making a doctors appt.

    Maybe you need to look at the things you're eating vs. calories. Here are some things to think about.:

    1.) Do the items you're eating have a large amount of sodium or salt? That may lead to water retention.
    2.) Are you eating enough? I've found that if I'm not eating enough calories, I can hold onto my weight or even gain (doesn't make sense, but that's how it goes I guess).
    3.) Are you paying attention to portion sizes? Sometimes what we think is a serving may actually be two or three. Something to think about.
    4.) Are you being honest about what you're eating? Sometimes it can be easy to say "oh that one candy bar/piece of fruit/etc. won't make a difference" when in fact it can add up with other misc. food items.

    Whatever it may be, just keep doing what you're doing. If you're doing what you're supposed to be doing the scale will move. If you're certain that you're doing absolutely everything that you should, I would recommend going to a doctor. That may be a sign of something not right.

    Have you been taking body measurements to see if you're getting changes in muscle? It's so frustrating that guys lose weight more easily than we do! Just remember that you're getting healthier, no matter what the scale says, and that's the most important part! Stress is counter-productive and will hold you back. Maybe take a break from weighing in & focus on other aspects of your health? Good luck!
