Feeling discouraged

Thursday, February 28, 2019

Why is it when you get all pumped up and focused on losing weight and make a conscious effort to do better and jump on the scale and it laughs at you and throws a bunch of extra weight on as though it is mocking you?!!?

I have been eating salads, working out, cut out soda and have been drinking more water over the course of the week and instead of dropping even 1 lb or even a single ounce... I gained several more pounds than what I started with. It's frustrating to see!

Am I giving up because of it? No, of course not... I'll continue to man ship and continue forcing ahead... cause there has to be some sort of biological reason for the weight gain. I'll figure that out eventually. But, it's frustrating no less.

On top of that - I have been battling the WORST headache the past 2 days. It's knocked me out cold and made me immobile. All I've done was sleep and drink water. Nothing more. I feel miserable.

    I've been there and many times return there! You will not give up.

    There are SO many biological reasons for that number on the scale. Try to focus on the good stuff, nourishing foods, healthy activity, small changes each day you can live with permanently.

    Sorry about the headache. If you cut your caffeine intake dramatically, that could be adding to your headache. I did that once, coffee, tea and soda.... buh by and the headaches were lasting and intense!

    I hope you feel better soon!

    Keep at it and look up the Woosh Effect. If you stay consistant I'm almost positive you'll see a big loss next week! The scale is just one measure. If you're not taking your inches, start! I've gained 2lbs this month but lost a ton of inches
