Playing the up and down scale number game

Wednesday, April 18, 2007

is that really a game afterall? For me it is b/c I weigh myself daily.
I always gain weight when I am lifting weights. I may have lost inches but it's not measuring time yet. I love seeing muscle definition, and knowing that I am strong enough not to ask my husband to open this that or the other unless I just want him to feel like he is my hero =)

It's just this number on the scale, it drives me insane!!!!

I also have to admit that on those days when I am feeling a little under the weather from my allergies I tend to snack more and not on the healthy stuff.
I have been trying harder to pay attention to my mindless snacking.

Staying positive, Staying focused and hoping to see a change....

    Keep in mind you may be gaining a few pounds here or there, but as long as your eating healthy..the weight gain is a healthy weight gain. At least that is what I tell myself to keep me from going insane over the scale!

    I know it can be annoying...thats why I dont own a scale. I measured several times a day for a while once, I had a daily 10 pound fluctuation! Luckily thats when I didnt care about my weight and was just curious.
    Its great that you are getting strong and seeing muscle definition...what kind of weight programs are you doing? Anything you might recommend? My arms are starting to get a workout as my baby gains weight but i'd like to add a little more to it then that =)

    Hello--I saw your blog while skimming the recent entries. Your muscles will retain water, too, after a good weight workout, so you may find the scale going up the following day. I know it's frustrating to see the numbers go up, even it is just water weight!
