It's my TOM right now but usually after the first 2 days, my weight goes back to normal. I ate super bad this weekend. We had Mexican on friday, pizza on sat. bacon, saugage, hashbrowns, biscuts and eggs last night. Plus after drinking what seemed like 500 galons of water over the last few weeks, I drank like 5 Mt. Dews this weekend. At work on friday I ate a crissant from starbucks, mocha light, (140 cals), doughnut, and some other sweets. Then sat I got a pack of double stuffed oreos. My hubby had about 6 and my kids had 3 each but I ate the enitre rest of the package.
Here's the crazy part. I stayed super active this weekend. I cleaned the house, did laundry, dishes, cooked, played xbox kinect dance central with the kids, walked, took the kids to the park. I mean, from the time I woke up sat and sun til about 7-8pm, I was up and doing something the whole day. I expected a gain. I knew I ate way too much and too sweet to have maintained my weight despite being fairly active but 6lbs?!?
I have cried all day, yelled at my husband, locked myself in the Lab at work so no one will bother me. I am in shock! I can't believe I did this to myself. I know I can turn it around and it's not the end of the world but I am so mad right now. I went a whole month without losing anything at all. I finally lose 8lbs, start to feel confident again and then boom, I put six pounds back on. I should have known better at this point and I am so dissapointed in myself. It's on this week and I am going to kick my own ass back into gear if it kills me!!!!! 3685 days ago
You can do this...Don't give up...6 lbs could be from so mnay things...water weight, muscle weight, pms, hormones, or a big piece of pizza you ate last night...Just get moving and get started again... 3685 days ago
Unless you ate 21,000 EXTRA calories this weekend (on top of whatever it would take to maintain your weight, estimate by your weight pluss a zero), you did not legitimately gain 6lbs. A lot of that is likely to be a fluctuation. Take a DEEEP BREATH and move ahead with good positive actions for your body and screw the stupid scale. You know you feel better when you eat well and are active (even if it's not super intense, WALK - walking is great for you!). *HUGS* HANG IN THERE! 3685 days ago
