Bad news

Saturday, June 13, 2009

I knew even before I got on the scales this morning that it would be bad news. I gained 1/4 of a pound. : ( But I won't let myself become discouraged because I know that I didn't over eat at any time. For one thing, sometimes I get too much sodium and I know that that makes my body retain water. I will have to watch that more closely. Another thing is, I don't drink enough water. I don't like water so really drink very little of it. I will have to change that. And another thing is, I don't eat enough. And I know that triggers my body into thinking that I am starving so it stores extra fat. Well, now that I know all the things that need to be changed, let's hope I can do just that. CHANGE!! I usually weigh in on Saturday mornings but I may add another day this week to see if this morning was a fluke. I can hope, anyway! It pains me to see my results go backwards!!
And, by the way, I was tempted to just not report this week's weigh-in. But I know there are some out there who will encourage me and I can't just hide my head in the sand!!

    Hey hon!
    Don't beat yourself up over 1/4 pound. That's the equivalent to one stick of butter. You are getting healthy each and every day physically. It's time to get healthy mentally and not gauge your "mental" health by the scale. I used to be like that. As a matter of fact, I used to say I was in SCALE JAIL and I needed to break out of it. I was so tired of having good or bad days AFTER weighing myself. I finally broke free of that bondage and trust that I'm getting healthy from the inside out. Like a flower in the process of blooming, the beauty will eventually show! You're blooming!! Be patient! You're worth it! emoticon

    Sodium is a dieters enemy.
    I eat a frozen dinner just about every night
    Helps me with portion control
    But it was just pointed out to me how much sodium they have
    and canned food, same thing
    it's every where
    I have never cooked with salt
    Dad had heart problems growing up, So got used to it

    Hang in there
    you can only go down from here
    with your new attitude

    Also remember if your exercising that your building muscle which weighs more than fat.
    Take measurements and then remeasure to see the non-scale victories.
