July was ROUGH!

Tuesday, July 31, 2018


So basically I got down to 219 lbs this month! However, I noticed that my analog portion of my scale (the one from Vanity Planet that everyone raves about!) wasn't aligning with what was output on the digital portion. SO - I reordered a new one. I stepped onto it and it read 222 lbs!


I then stepped on my old scale and it read 219 lbs!


So I've been over 221 lbs for this entire month and don't even know if I can count on the 219 reading. *major eye roll*. I'm trying my best not to obsess over that 2 lbs, but you all know how it is when you're on point and then it's like it never happened? Or even worse - taken away!! UGH.

So I've just been continuing my healthy eating and staying active, watching the scale fluctuate from 222 lbs to 220 lbs for the last two weeks. Hopefully this change in my diet (going to try low carb) will help push me back into losing more frequently. I'm 6 months into my journey and having only lost 33 lbs is a little discouraging when you see others losing 50 + lbs! HOW!? lol


I went camping last weekend and brought my food scale and a journal to track EVERYTHING I ate. It really helped me stay on track. I left at 221 lbs on Thursday, and returned home Sunday at 222.8 lbs. Today (Tuesday) I'm 221 lbs again, so YAY! I am not retaining any water weight. Not to mention I worked my butt off on Monday since I didn't work out during my camping trip. Got an entire body workout! I'm just hoping these small tweeks will help me get over this hump. How do people lose weight continuously each week? It's like I don't lose anything for two weeks and then suddenly I lose 3 lbs!? I want to see it EACH week, darnit. lol

Thank you for reading my blog. I appreciate your kind words and thoughts.

Peep this pic of my husband and I getting to the top of this mountain in our hometown.

    I know how discouraging it is. I have been doing Keto and it seems everyone is losing tons of weight on it but, me. At first I lost 19 pounds fast but, I have been at a plateau for weeks staying at 204 not moving at all. I was going to the gym but, haven't felt good lately so I haven't been working out much. I bet you are losing inches. I notice in your picture above that you have lost more weight it really shows. Your doing a good job emoticon

    All scales are different. That being said, I know how much 2 little pounds can mean. Im fluctuating between 210-212 and it's starting to irritate me! LOL. Its been a couple weeks but I can say that ive not been getting my movement in. You can do it!!

    Dont give up or into anything. You could be losing inches. If your trying and doing good, dont worry about what the scale reads. Push ahead, drink tons of water and try again next week. You can do this.
