HELP...I'm drowning in negativity..but the good news is.....

Saturday, March 07, 2015

I have been working very hard at exercising five days a week..watching my calorie intake (keeping it at 1200 cal. a day)..Reading my Beck Diet Solution book and following the advice.So this morning I get the bright idea I will weigh..I haven't weighed in a few weeks..When I step on the scale it registers that I have gained 2 lbs ..WHAT THE HEY!! GAINED....that hit me like a ton of bricks. With the 45 min. or recumbent biking and the 10 min. of rebounding..I was certain that scale would be kind and I would be down at least two - 5 lbs...but NO!!
I have worked so hard to achieve health and weight loss...well , I feel like a alcoholic who wants to go get a drink..but I want to just go eat..! What's the use??
Well the use is..I can be healthier ..I can loose..I just have to stick with the plan and continue to be the best I can be, in spite of what the scale dishes out. I will not let the scale dictate who I am..!!
I am getting stronger..I am God's creation..thru Him I can overcome ..!

    Oh, Lynda....one suggestions I can give you is to weigh more often...and do you log your food in Spark's food tracker? Both things REALLY help...I know how upsetting that is but just consider it as a lesson....you can learn from this!

    I use to go thru the same thing. I'd feel so proud of myself for being "good" and then I'd step on the scale and discover I'd gained weight. Right then and there I decided not to weigh except once a month. I can tell if I've lost by the feel of my clothes. Just keep on doing good things for yourself and you will see a big change in how you feel. emoticon

    Also remember that muscle weighs more than fat. How are your clothes fitting? If they are lose, than you have lost fat, toned your muscles and built some more, and are getting healthier. emoticon emoticon

    I don't know how old you are, but I'm 59 and 1200 calories is maintenance for me...so when I had to re-lose my last regain of 31 lbs, I had to drop my caloric intake significantly.

    I know I know I know...they say we should never drop below 1200 calories a day, but I cannot run or exercise off 31 lbs!!!! I can't do it!!! So, I did exercise moderately...trying for a 3 mile walk every day, but still had to reduce those calories...

    So, I know you can do it! I know you can reach your goal...maybe try sticking to your plan for another week and see what happens...if you're up another 2 lbs, perhaps you'll have to go to Plan B. Just a thought1!!!

    Believe it or not you are doing just fine, your scale will get the memo and give you the feed back that you are looking for in a while. Don't forget to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
