So here it is....I weigh 0.2 pounds MORE than I was at the beginning of the month. I’m disallusioned beyond belief right now. Near tears. Frustrated. And angry.
I haven’t been perfect. I know that. And I’m not aiming for perfection! But I have been so much more on point than I was in December and November.
I have weighed every Wednesday for my ‘official’ weigh in and I’ve weighed every Saturday for my unofficial check in. Wednesday’s I’ve been up....Saturday’s I’ve been down. All within a 4 pound range.
As you can see day one was high and the. The rest of the month I fluctuated between two pounds but still showing lower than January 1. But today...boom...right back up there!
I am running right at goal in terms of calories to lose 1 pound a week. (That goal is 1750...and my average was 1762).
I will say that I had a bad feeling when I woke up that the scales were not going to be friendly. Why? I woke up thirsty. That usually indicates that I am retaining water....dehydrated (I drank 4 or 5 bottles of water yesterday though!). And the monthly ick has been part of my week...another whammy. But seriously.....really????
Wow...excuses.....did I just negate those excuses as invalid and not acceptable? That’s a first for me!!!
So on to the midweek report.
I have restarted the stairs at work.
My knee still is a bit sore but it’s capable of climbing!
Jason and I walked outside on Monday night.
But sadly there had been no bike trainer for me. I have been utterly exhausted each night by the time I get home. Jason mentioned my ‘spacey-ness’ on Monday night and my mom mentioned it on Tuesday night....so I know it’s not just me trying to find a reason. I’m just plain exhausted. Maybe I’m fighting off the germs that Jason probably shared with me last week when he was sick with a cold. I have no symptoms (other than some sinus pressure) but maybe my body is just busy fighting it off. Who knows.
I have been tracking everything! As I mentioned I’m actually eating in amounts that should have me losing 1 pound a week. And lots of fruits and veggies....not all junk!
I’m just ratttled because I’ve tried this month and I don’t have much to show for my effort....just some overly tight pants and some memories of carrots and grapes.
