A gain....

Yup you heard it right - I had a gain this week :( 0.6lbs. Not a huge gain but definately not a loss.

The first thing I wanted to do was make excuses - Im just finishing that time of the month and I did consume more than normal sodium amounts.

But then I sat and gave it a real thought. Pulled out my tracker for this week and relooked at all my food. I wasnt very honest with myself. The night of last weigh in I picked up mexican for G and I and none of that made it into the food journal. I told myself it was my weigh in day and therfore a day off... ummm no. I also ate a bite of stuff here and there that Im sure added up and no it wasnt on the tracker either.

So while yes I probually am holding on to fluid more this week because of the above reasons - I also didnt really do plan that well. Nor did I get the workouts I normally get in.

Following weigh in, I ran some errands with hubby and went out to breakfast. Feeling sorry for myself - I did what I normally do.... ate. I didnt go overboard with the pancakes I really eanted but I wasnt nearly as good as I normally am for breakfast out - 14 points for todays breakfast... BUT I came home and wrote it all down and took ownership of my eating. I REALLY want to wallow in myself today - its rainy, gray, cold and gross out. Im hormonal and totally bummed by my gain. I want to go out to eat Mexican tonight and have a margarita. I want to go to the new burger place tonight and have a bacon cheeseburger, fries and a shake. It would be so yummy! BUT no... will that really make me happy. NO. Will it be worth how I feel afterwards? NO. So it isnt happenning. Yes I will be over my points for today because of breakfast but not digging into a giant hole.

Its not just about the scale. I had good nonscale victories this week. I got to 545am spin class this week - huge victory for me. I felt great in my clothes this week. I had some great happy days.


  1. Just wanted to stop by and say hi! Good luck with your training for Shamrock! That was my first marathon back in 2008.

  2. Well, it's bad news that you had a gain. You know what would be even worse? Letting that little gain influence you to the point of allowing your eating to go way out of control and result in a much bigger gain. Seems like you know that very well and I am glad to read that. Anyway, cheer up, move on, smile. You can do it :)

  3. Bummer about your gain :( At least you know what the problem was so you can fix it next weigh in!! :)

  4. Sorry you gained...but think that is was only a small amount. you will get back down...I am living proof of gain and loss of the same lbs for MONTHS! Keep tracking!

  5. I'd love to say sorry about your gain but I'm not going to because there's nothing to be sorry for. So what...you had a tough week and the scale showed it. Now you know more about your body and how it responds to your emotions and your actions. Take it and move forward. You're doing so well, don't fret about 0.6lbs. It's a blip if you allow it to be. You can do it! Smile, you're still here. :)
