When the scale's been lying the whole time...
Saturday, May 27, 2017
Sorry for not posting more recaps, everyone. I got the shock of my life when I went to the doctor last Wednesday and stepped on their scale. Turns out I weighed 242 pounds, not the 183 that the bathroom scale was telling me.
I also have high blood pressure, so I've had to purchase a monitor and watch it twice a day for two weeks.
I was so crushed and disheartened. I cried for a good hour after I got home. I mean, I thought that maybe I looked too big to be 183, but I also thought that maybe I was just being too hard on myself. I was so proud, so happy with the scale dropping a bit every week.
This week I've gained three more pounds.
I don't know if I've been succeeding at the 5% challenge or not, so I'm not going to give myself the reward I'd been happily planning for these last few weeks.
I just feel like giving up, but I know that if I do, I'll be right back where I started in 2014. It's going to take much, MUCH longer to get to my goal, but I have to keep trying.
