Up hill battle!!
Apr 17, 2011
My scale must be the "male" version because it truly enjoys playing with my emotions and loves to get me upset. I know that we lose and gain for different reasons and at different paces. I also know that our weight will fluctuate from day to day so we shouldn't weigh each day. Yet even with knowing all these things....I still weigh everyday....and I still get frustrated on days like today when the scale totally loses its darn mind and says something stupid!!
Yesterday morning I weighed 223...which is great...that means I lost a pound in a week! I am ok with that, as long as the number moves down at least by 1 digit I am cool. Ok, so this morning I get up, do my same routine, weight....and this thing says 227! WTF!!!!???? 5 pounds in a day? There is no way I ate 15,000 calories yesterday to magically gain 5 pounds. So what is the deal? Ok, so I go back through what I ate yesterday...for breakfast I had 1 egg scrambled with cheddar cheese. For lunch I had 1/2 of a 6ft subway seafood and crab sub. For snack I had the other half. For dinner I had a small taco salad with (one crunchy shell, a spoonful of ground beef, sour cream, taco sauce, lettuce, onion & tomato). That is not a lot of food. It wasn't a ton of sweets or salty things.....yet the scale reads 5 pounds higher today?? I am confused. I know that my weight loss has a pattern. I usually fluctuate through the week and then towards the weekend it drops. But 5 pounds is major! I don't understand what I am doing wrong. I am going to try to track my food better, count my calories closer and see if I can get this up and down thing under control. I want to be under 200 pounds so bad. And I know that these last 23-27 pounds are going to be the hardest because I do want it so darn bad!
