What Gives

Im glad I didng weigh myself on Wednesday because I would have been correct in my assessment of being disapointed. I am disapointed today. Sure my weight is down almost 2 pounds from Monday, but its still over 160. What the heck? My food has been spot on all week. Ive even increased some of my water intake as well. Ive exercised 3 days this week so far which is a day less than usual, so Im really not sure what is going on. Last week I was really high and then really low on Friday. I was hoping for the same trend this week and so I have to ask myself what gives? whats going on that my weight is so high? Im not one of those people thats eating extra things or eating junk and then coming on here and acting like Im shocked. I truly dont understand what is happening. Nothing has changed and yet my weight is higher. Im watching what I eat and not letting any extras come into contact with my mouth. I appear to be doing everything right, yet my weight is not going back down. This is so frustrating. I have worked so hard to be where Im at and its just not happening. Grrr! that is a noise of anger and frustration. I know know, I always seem to have these entries lately which is probably why no one even reads my blog anymore. but this is the honest truth of weight loss and how much it really sucks!

Don't give up! You can do it and figure out what is going on. Our bodies flux so much its crazy at times. You will figure it out. Hang in there.

hang in there! I totally know how you're feeling and it sucks, but you have been doing great and it will show up on the scale eventually. It is really stressful wedding planning while trying to lose weight, I know. I don't have any advice unfortunately, just wanted to commiserate! have a great weekend and try not to stress!

It is soooo frustrating. Have you tried mixing up your food or maybe you're not eating enough for the amount of exercise you're doing? or maybe it's just the scale being stubborn but I'm sure you'll get the scale moving in the right direction again. Hang in there.

It's very frustrating, isn't it? Sometimes I simply want to spit the dummy and scream.

The latest thing I'm trying is to eat in a caloric deficit (BMI x activity less 1000 calories/day) and to weigh every piece of food that crosses my mouth and enter it into Fitday. I've committed to doing this for 1 month. I don't necessarily like doing it - and it can feel a bit obsessive at times - but I'm not willing to maintain at my current weight OR gain (which I did this last month when I didn't track).

Sometimes we just need to vent so vent away, Heather. Those of us that are where you are certainly relate and know that it sucks.

Hey, I'm reading and I'm somone! :)

One thing that occurred to me as I read your post is that it's possible the weight is 'carry-over' from your camping trips. (?) My "off-norm" times can take a week or so to show up sometimes. If so, it should take care of itself in the next week or so. If not, maybe it's time to shake it up a little?

I'm so sorry Heather, I have not gotten to your point yet, but I feel a bit like that. I have been increasing my workouts like crazy from just walking every day to biking and walking, to biking, walking and boot camp to biking, running, and boot camp, to biking, running, stair climbing, wakling, and boot camp. And in the last two months I have lost... what 2, maybe 4 lbs? It sounds whiny to say this, and it doesn't help anything but it is SO DAMN UNFAIR! *hugs* just don't give up.

In order to achieve any goal, one must think positively. Then be realistic with your goals by writing down steps that you can do within a given time frame. Be dedicated and don't let distractions worn you down.
