was starting to wonder

Wednesday, January 24, 2007

what was going on. i was on track eating right working out and i showed a 2 lb gain. at another time i was going to give up but this time i stuck it out and the 2lbs were gone as of this morning now to continue with the downward trend.
i am not new to this after all its been a year of ups and downs on the scale and i know what takes the weight off so why did i lose my momentum? not really sure all i know is this is my year for once and all and i am going to stay op and work through my troubles and focus on the day to day and take the little steps that get me to the finish line.

    It's all that exercise! Your trainer is putting the muscle on you, the rest of the way will be that much easier with more muscles to burn up your food... keep it up!

    You can do it... I can do it! together it will be a breeze girl....
    Check yourself- jounaling? working out? drinking water? staying on plan? If you said yes to all of it, don't sweat the scale. If you've plateaued - change something. Less carbs for a week, or a new dvd workout should do it. Surprise your body!

    Wow, KellySS_43 said it best. You know skinny that I too have a problem with the scale but I am losing inches. I would rather lose inches than lbs anyway. Did you see how much room 5lbs of fat takes up? Well I did and it has motivated me to keep doing it even thou the scale says otherwise.

    My Gyno only looks at the scale and talks about I've only lost this and that while my Primary compliments me and sees the changes in my face and body.

    Stay on track girl, I am here right along with you. Keep it UP!
    You motivate ME!

    Day by day; pound by pound; inch by inch --- that's how I'm trying to think. But, hey, you're only human and there are gonna be days when you say to yourself ''I don't want to do this anymore''. When that comes - feel it, cry about it if you want, stomp your feet if you feel the need, get it all out of your system and then --- get back to work. If you're an emotional eater (like I am), you have to break the cycle of choking on your emotions. A lot of times I would stay silent about my feelings but stuff myself with food for comfort - guess that's why I got to over 300 lbs. Don't stuff your feelings down, it'll only lead to self-sabotage. I say, do whatever it takes to get the feelings out and then move on. You're doing great, you can do this!!
