Weigh in, WHY???

Friday, February 12, 2010

This past week I have made mistakes in the eating department but I have been working out more then I ever have. I was excited to step on the scale to see the change. By my surprise... NO CHANGE. As I stepped down from the scale, I started to cry. Why is it that when I think I am doing good, it doesn't show?

The first thing that ran through my mind was the fact I had pizza yesterday and subway a couple times during the week. Right away are start putting down myself. That is exactly what I don't want to do, but my brain is set to auto bash.

So now what do I do? Instead of going crazy because I stayed the same I know I need to keep up what I was doing. Instead of giving up I need to continue to work out and eat right.

Its really difficult to continue after seeing nothing happen. I am fighting with myself going back and forth with the negative and positive.

Fall down seven times. Stand up eight. I will do this. I just need a lot of support.

    I have struggled with this too. It is all about finding a balance that works for your body. My trainer recently told me that I may not be eating enough to support the exercise I am doing. That may be something to look at.

    But it sounds like you have the right attitude and you will make it there. Stay strong.....

    It's hard not to blame yourself. I have many, many years of eating bad and trust me, it takes time not to blame yourself. It'll happen. When I eat bad, I put it behind me and try not to look back. Good luck.

    I totally know what is going on with this!!!
    Don't worry hun, you are making a change, now, you are loosing fat... but you are gaining muscle from working out the way you are, and muscle weighs more than fat!!!
    Most people do feel so discouraged b/c they think nothing is happening on the scale, but don't worry, what is happening in you, and not on the scale is so much better!
    You will be gaining strength and endurance, and once you start out eating better... (check your salt/sodium intake because salt=water retention, and fat storage around the midsection, hey i know i have love handles i am fighting) you will see after you loose the fat ontop, that underneath, you have the beginnings of abs, toned arms and legs, and a tight little hiney..
    stay positive... my blog, is Temptations, the wonders of willpower, self control, and mind over matter...
    and stay focused...
    good luck!!!!
