I'm confused, and annoyed, and frustrated, and ...

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Ok, so I need to whine for a minute. (whine mode on) I have been really good, for me. My emotional eating has been manageable. I've worked through staying active with my bursitis and I added strength training to my routine on a regular basis. So why when I weighed in today was the scale UP 6.2 pounds? (whine mode off) Sigh.

I know that I am not perfect and all I can do is continue to exercise and decrease my intake. I have to admit even with the gain, my clothes are looser, I had to buy smaller sizes, and I'm feeling pretty good. I suspect the gain is a combination of things, including muscle gain. I will look at this as a temporary blip and not let it send me into a spiral of binge eating.

I'm going to pull myself up, dust myself off, and forge ahead.

    You are doing an awesome job at this. Weight up?? I've weighed myself, found my weight up, gotten off and weighed myself again and gotten a significantly different number. Forget the scale -- it's abusive I think though I will admit I keep going back for more. Concentrate on those NSVs -- they are the ones telling the truth!! Keep up the good work!

    EXCELLENT WHINING! If that didn't get rid of some frustration, try kicking the scale across the room with your new muscles!
    You are a Sparker. You are on the right track.
    There's a lot of love and support for you out here!

    And I think your dog is cute. emoticon

    I'm so glad you came to the blogspot to whine. Get it out and get on with it! At the end of the day, you are further along than when you started and that is the carrot to keep you going! emoticon

    Donna's right, the NSVs speak for themselves. Tell them to tell the scale to shut up! I too struggle with this -- sometimes when I cheat I lose a pound or two and when I do everything the "right" way I'll be up. It's probably something your body is doing that has nothing to do with what you are doing, and it will right itself within a couple of days.

    You have been doing a fabulous job Sable, and I really applaud you and your success. Keep up the good work and I just know the scale will get on the right page soon.

    And whining IS allowed here -- sometimes that venting is what keeps us sane.

    Bet you heard me all the way from here to there. LOL

    Ok, been there done that, we like to see those numbers fall, but we know that there are so many reasons for it to bounce up and down. It's maddening, yes, but it doesn't define us.

    Having to buy smaller sized clothing. Loose clothing. Strength and ability to do more reps of your ST (you didn't specifically mention that but I know it's true) stamina. These are the things you need to focus on right now so this blip doesn't drive you headlong into a bag of chips or whatever your kryptonite is.

    You know my weird sense of humor....maybe you need a good dump! LOL Sorry friend, we laugh lest we sit down and cry!

    You're doing great. I have been known to vary by 6 lbs in a matter of hours with nothing happening in between. So, yes, this is most likely a temporary blip.
