Today was not what I expected when I stepped on the scale.
Start Date: Jan. 5, 2012
Starting Weight: 198
Today's Date: Mar. 22, 2012
Current Weight: 188.5
Week 10: gained 2.2 lbs
Total Loss: 9.5 (down from 11.7)
I don't know what to say. I am so disappointed, I feel discouraged and like I want give up and just accept that I'm always going to be overweight. There were times I may not have chosen the best things to eat but I didn't think it was bad enough to gain weight. I still worked out at the gym on my normal days, and on one of those days I drank 4 bottles of water. And we all know how hard it is for me to drink water.
It's been 11 weeks now and I've been trying to stay positive and not get discouraged despite what the scale says. Today I'm not able to do that. I really want to pout, eat a bunch of candy and watch chick flicks and feel sorry for myself. But I'm not going to do that, I definitely can't lie though, this is crushing after working so hard for 11 weeks!!!
I'm not going to give up. I'm going to continue going to the gym, I'm going to try and make the best food choices I can and more importantly...
I'm putting the scale away for awhile. Although it's great to see a loss, it's very discouraging for me when that loss is not as much as I think it should be or even worse, when it's a gain.
