On Tuesday I walked for 45 minutes in the morning and did a Zumba class at night.
Wednesday I did Pilates in the morning and did a Zumba class at night.
On both days I drank well over my recommended 8 cups of water and did not eat (much) over my Sodium recommendations. I have low blood pressure so I need to eat more Sodium than most, but I really try to balance it well.
So TELL ME WHY MY WEIGHT HAS GONE UP 4 POUNDS SINCE TUESDAY MORNING!!!!!!!!!!
Honestly... I don't get it anymore. I really don't.
I am generally a positive person.
I really try.
When I eat at a restaurant I ALWAYS over-estimate the calories I eat because I know I have to.
I try to get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep nightly.
At my recent visit for my yearly check-up all my numbers and bloodwork came back great... so it's not my thyroid.
I weigh myself daily because it's better for me to see these crazy daily fluctuations rather than weighing myself weekly and just being baffled.
This is crazy so yes, I'm baffled, but I can't blame myself... It's really impossible to truly gain 4 pounds in two days.
I just don't know anymore.
I see all these people just "sticking with the program" and it working for them.
It just isn't working for ME.
I'm not giving up because this is a healthy way to live my life anyway.
I'm just moving toward accepting the fact that my body was not meant to weigh less than it does anymore...
