Going to Miami

Friday, March 07, 2008

I'm going to miami for the next two days and I'm not bringing my computer. The stupid scale said 127 today and I'm freaked out - I am totally gaining weight. I am going to really focus when I get home. Cutting down on the alcohol, white rice with the sushi, staying of the dried fruit and any other food I can't portion control. I want to be back to the low 120s by the end of the month and I CAN do it.

Anyway I will see you all on Sunday. I'll write down my food in my blackberry and I'll log it.

I remain puzzled. I work out for an average of an hour a day and a BAD day for me is 2200 calories. How does someone who does that gain 5 pounds in a month? One thing though, I notice that my scale reads differently in different places in my bathroom...puzzling.

    Hi Mandy,
    I'm having the same issue... sometimes I feel like I'm doing really well eating and exersizing and then the stupid scale goes the wrong way. I'm hanging out in the high 120s too which really sucks for me because the thought of ever being 130 again scares me. But hang in there and don't let it discourage you. We just have to be more stubburn than the scale. You can do it!

    p.s. My scale gives a different readings before and after I shower which makes me obsess and weight myself like 5 times in the morning. So I'm trying to just weigh once and the first reading is it.

    Sometimes clothes are a better judge of weight. Also use several scales. I use one at the YWCA, my house, my Dad's house. They are all different!

    Good luck. Maintaining is really challenging!
