Feeling sore and sad...

Thursday, January 08, 2009

Determination kicked back in at the beginning of the week and I've been walking about a third+ more steps than usual every day. I've been good on the calories up until last night also.

But guess what? I've been gaining weight :( A kilo in fact :( So all I've gotten for my extra effort is an extra kilo, sore muscles and I feel about twice the size that I was **sigh**

Perhaps I need to give myself a slower day for it to all work out....

We'll see what happens on my official weigh in day on Sunday I spose...

    Remember that muscle is denser than fat and that it can take quite a while for results to be noticable. Weight fluxuates more than a kilo on a daily basis. Stay strong. If your official weigh in day is Sunday, don't weigh yourself on any other day. I used to weigh myself obsessively and every time my weight wouldn't have changed, I'd get discouraged. EVERY time I've failed, that's been why. These days I don't weigh myself at ALL. I haven't weighed myself in about a month and I have no idea how much weight I've lost. It keeps me focused and keeps me from being discouraged. Remember that your health and wellness trump a silly number on a scale.

    If you need further encouragement, I'd be happy to share some recipes with you or do some exercising with you. You're doing great, don't be so hard on yourself.
