Cursing my body and the scale

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

Unfreaking believeable! So, last week did the weigh in despite pms and was up 1 lb. Ok, whatever. I normally gain a lot more so I was ok with it though not happy. Stepped on the scale today because pms finished yesteriday. 288, almost 289--what the hell? 6, almost 7 lb gain!!! It better damn well be pms weight that showed up while I wasnt looking. The problem is regardless if it is or not, pms doesnt seem to want to leave any faster than any other weight.
4 weeks of barely eating thanks to the heat. I had one day that was right at my calorie range. You know, you would think being low on calories would be a good thing. Other women do that and lose. And some of those were in acceptable range despite it being far away from my own calorie range--I would have thought...1100 to about 1500 barely. Not for me. I'm wondering though if its a combination of things though. Not just the fact my calories are low but maybe because its paired with hours of not eating? Maybe thats why my body insists on gaining?
It just makes me so frustrated ! I thought that because I was being considerate of my calories that was enough--not even close! Ok FINE then. I give up-4 weeks of this crap and steadily climbing in weight. Its war. My body wants food--it will get it. It wants regular meals so it doesnt think its starving to death and has to hold on to every freaking thing I put into my mouth. FINE. Screw the heat, I will find a way around it.

    Girlfriend, hang in there. I KNOW this is frustrating. First of all, you HAVE to think of this as getting healthy and NOT about weight loss. As hard as that may be, this is the only way to be successful. Trust me, if you change the way you think, make healthy food choices, drink tons of water, exercise every day and believe that you deserve to be healthy, things will get better. Losing weight will happen, but, remember that we are not defined by the number on the scale, but, by the substance of our being. HUGS!!!
