Day 106: This is where I would give up

But i wont.

Got on the scale this morning. I was up 169.6lbs. I am trying to rationalize this. I wish I had weighed in last week so that I could really tell what my week of almost being perfect had resulted in.
I jogged/walked 3 miles everyday. I ate less that 50g of carbs daily. I did jillian Michaels’ 30DS daily and I had an average of 1400 cals daily. I was really hopping i would be at the 166lb point. The only thing I could think of was that I might have been really up last week when i didn’t weigh-in last week. maybe in the low 170’s

Ater my depressing weigh-in I didn’t go for my run. I crawled back into bed and pitied myself. I still have to  make time for a run later on today. just because one of my goals int going as planned doesn’t mean i should sabotage my running goals.

I am thoroughly tempted to go out and eat cake; but I wont. I’ll keep up what i did this week and if by next saturday I am not back on track. Cake will be had, I will feel sorry for myself for one day then I will get back on track. I think by then I will deserve a day of self pity.

  1. Hello!
    Just added your blog to my daily reads 🙂
    Just wanted to say I have been in your exact same position before. The same weight & the same frustration at the scales when you think you are doing everything right. I have also experienced the ‘Screw this, I may as well eat cake’ mindset too (and have!). But start each day a fresh and carry on working towards your goals and the rewards will be well worth fighting for. Look forward to reading more updates.

  2. Don’t give up! Weight loss depends on a ton of factors, and it sounds like you’re doing it right. You’ll get there– keep persisting and don’t be so hard on yourself. 🙂

  3. Hi veggie reader,
    I added u to my reading list and wanted to thank u for checking out my blog! 🙂 I know how you feel. I have been there even recently where I didn’t see the fruits of my labor. It is a very frustrating feeling! It’s always tempting to give up but try to hang in there! There might be days where te scale holds steady and then next thing u know it will start falling off! 🙂 keep up ur awesome work! And if u fall down it spunds like ur strong enough to get up, dust urself off and try try again! U go girl! 🙂

  4. Stay off the scale! Measure yourself ! Our bodies can go up and down in weight daily as much as 5lbs. When you are exercising and eating well sometimes the scale won’t move at all but you will still get smaller. Fat is big and fluffy muscle is tight and compact. While a lb of muscle and a pound of fat will weight the same( a pound is a pound no matter what it is) you will look different, your clothes will fit better and you will feel better!
