Where did you hide my motivation?? GIVE IT BACK!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010


All the crap going on right now, and its stressing me out.. and I am using that as a excuse to eat. I know, its not what I should be doing, especially having almost perfect 3 weeks in a row.

I think part of it has to do with stepping on the scale - 190 lbs 3 weeks ago, 1 weeks ago seeing 185.4 lbs and still after eating great... this week was 188.4. How the heck did that happen???

This is why I try to stay away from the scale because I let it control my moods. I know better than to think, why should I try, but I do.
I had even been working out more than usual, the past three weeks I had right around 600 minutes/ week.


One day at a time, one meal at a time, I've got to break out of this cycle!

motivation please!

    I'm with you on this. I have been sitting on the edge of 180 for several weeks now. I was dropping slowly but steadily for about a month and then I have gotten stuck. I want so bad to be back in the 170's and I get teaser's during the week, but then on WI day it is back at 180. So frustrating, but we have to keep pushing forward--eventually we WILL see it move the right direction again...

    Try not to let those scales upset you and damage all the great work you have done. Keep on keeping on! You can do it.

    Darn scales. Frustrating, I know. Are you keeping track of measurements? That moves when the scale doesn't sometimes.

    I know it's hard not to let the scale rule your feelings, but you know you've been doing the work, and the scale will show you a good number soon.

    So back away from that food emoticon and go step instead emoticon

    We call the scale "the random number generator" Sometimes it just gives us weird numbers that don't reflect what we feel they should be. I would just brush it off and keep up all your hard work. Bet you that by next week it will be down again. : )
