even steven go to h e double hockey sticks

Thursday, August 10, 2017

I added this after----(((I keep forgetting that some people dont follow me on here and that they dont realize that over the last 5 years, I have already lost 65 lbs, but I cant get beyond this wall.
I am just stuck here. Like Tom Hanks on Castaway.
I am stuck, to forever live in this 2 lb weight vortex until my death!!
I dont weigh every day, I do weigh every week, I skip a week, I gain, I stay the same, I never lose.
And in the event by some random miracle that the miracle fairy spilled while flying over my house, I should lose a pound, you can bet it will be come back in the next week!
I get no where, quicksand is my new home!!)))



Even Steven snuck into my bathroom and played a trick on my bathroom scale, and on me!!
I waited two weeks to get on the scale again.
After my last weigh in and no loss or gain, I decided to give the scale a break and just focus on working on myself, walking, eating right.
All week I have been SEEING and FEELING the changes.
I could just tell----sitting in a tub soaking after a long walk on Tuesday----I could see the difference in my body.
Getting dressed in front of the mirror, I could see the contours of my waist.
I could feel the lighter feel in my walk.
I can reach around my back easier and almost get my hand all the way around to the other side.
Just changes.
But the scale says wooahhh take a step back there lady!!
A ONE POUND GAIN!!!?????!!!!
This is impossible.
This has to be a mistake.
I had just set my mind that I was going to accept whatever the scale said because I am seeing and feeling the changes and I know what I have eaten, what I have cut, how much water, walk, sleep, vitamins, workout I have had!!
So, what people, what, tell me what is the deal with this???
Yes, I am going to focus on the good, but its really hard to do when your END GOAL is weight loss.
I was sure I would see at the very least a 2 lb loss, I mean its been two frickingly wickedly weeks!!!
I should see a 4 lb loss just to be honest.
I know we have all said it and suspected it, but I really do believe my scale is messed up.
It stays in a 1 to 2 lb number.
I am going to buy a new scale.
I have had this one about 8 years or so and it is a digital scale, so maybe its......
Oh, who am I kidding!!!
It isnt the scale at all. I am just bound to live my life at this weight.
I cannot get below it no matter what I do.
It really does make one feel defeated. It makes me want to just go on a binger and eat all the good stuff I have not eaten in months. I have stayed true to my plan and my plan, my scale and my self fails me.

    There's a lot of stuff splashing around in your body, so you can never tell when the tide goes in or out. Just stick to what you're doing, and you'll see results. Discouragement is what keeps us from losing weight.

    You don't know if that number is real because you don't know if that pound was there yesterday. Maybe it will be gone tomorrow.

    How do you know if that one day's weigh in fell on one of those freaky fluctuation days?
    That's the problem with occasional or "official" weigh in days. The number up or down can mess with your head every bit as much as we are warned not to weigh every day for the same reason.

    During my 1 year of weight loss and the succeeding 7 years of maintenance I realized that weighing every morning was the way I learned about fluctuation and how my body reacts. Fluctuation means up AND down. So no cause for concern unless the trend is only up day after day. Then I reevaluate what I'm doing.

    Keep up what you are doing. It's very possible you have lost weight. Good luck figuring out what works best for you.

    Edit: Just saw the last comment. We like to believe that but muscle does NOT weigh more than fat. Muscle takes up less space, so we look and feel better, but it does not change our weight. A pound is a pound whether it's feathers or steel.

    I know it's frustrating but keep trying, what works for me is doing one thing different. Good luck on your goals
