Nothing Good

Well sorry to be Ms Depressed lately, but I have nothing good to report on today. Up .4 from Friday and definitely not happy about it. The frustration is setting in because Im doing everything right! I ate well and exercised all weekend long. I just dont get it sometimes.

Well I do, its TOM and I know it. But its just frustrating. Sometimes gains dont bother me as much, but when everything else seems crummy, and then you add a gain to the mix, everything just seems like too much.

Right now I am not following the goal I set for myself to not be so hard on myself. Lately I am being really hard on myself. I need to stop it! I am doing the best that I can with things and I shouldnt focus so much on the bad. True, it doesnt seem like theres much going on that I can be happy about, but getting upset over a gain on the scale (for the 2nd week now) doesnt seem worth it. Ill be skipping my Wednesday weighin due to the 9 hour meeting (in which pizza and chinese buffet are the dinner choices.....great). So Im just going to move on from this and hope for the best again on Friday.

Hmmm... I think you're right in that you're being too hard on yourself. The thing is, you really shouldn't be treating any change that's less than a pound as a change at all, especially with TOM kicking in! :-) Just think about what you would tell a friend who's seen the same gain and complains about it, and then tell that to yourself. If you're doing things right, you'll see a loss eventually, you know that. Maybe the key is to stop expecting it, who knows? :-)
Sorry to hear about the bad week at work. Any chance you might be able to pack your own dinner for Wednesday, or would that seem weird in your team? I'm sure you could eat something in the buffet that's ok-ish, though. And if not, a couple of slices of pizza in a hard working day will not ruin your efforts. I would at least try to enjoy the "forced splurge" :-)

I think you should listen to you and stop being so hard on yourself. TOM is killing me right now and I'm really glad I'm NOT getting on the scale until next month.

I know I've said it before, but I think you're doing fabulous!

Love the recipes too, I can't wait to try the raspberry one!

I have to agree with you, a .4 gain during TOM is actually on the small side in my experience. I'm glad you're moving on. You deserve to treat yourself as the success you've been. And will continue to be!

Heather, I hope you are on the upside of crummy very soon. I have been reading through your blog... Your story is very inspiring! I'm so glad you posted a comment on my blog (five minutes for me). It's water... Don't be too hard on yourself the rest of the week.

It's wonderful to meet such a sweet, inspiring person!

Just rememer, you already met your goal! Anything beyond that is just icing on the cake. You look absolutely amazing! Take a good look at yourself in the mirror. Look how far you have come! You are an amazing woman. You have to remember things like that when the scale isn't quite cooperating or you'll drive yourself crazy.

Plus you have been crazy stressed lately, and with TOM on its way...I would consider this WI a success! Have you been able to get your workouts in lately? Maybe thats where you need to kick it up a notch. (Although if you ask me, I think you are perfect just as you are!)

Hope you start feeling better soon! =)

Heather - you need to stop obsessing about the scale. I can lose almost 1/2 pound by just peeing! Our body weight fluctuates daily - even hourly! And especially when TOM is here!

Don't let the numbers dicate your happiness or mood for the day! As long as you're doing what you have been doing you're okay. Really!

When I'm hormonal, it doesn't matter what's going on--I still feel like crap. Keep telling yourself--this is only temporary, this is only temporary. You will soon be back to happy, adorable YOU. Hang in there.

Hey! I agree with many other commenters and with what you said - you are too hard on yourself! 0.4 is such a small fluctuation! Continue to make the good choices that you always do and it will pay off in the end. Take care!
