Monday Weigh In

I'm back up to 204.2. Two pound weight gain!! NOT HAPPY. I really want to feel martyred and victimized right now. I want to be self-righteous and stick my nose up at the scale. I didn't make either my Christmas goal or my New Year's goal, and its definitely time to feel sorry for myself!
I want to tell myself that I've done everything I should be doing. This was unavoidable. I've been logging in my calories and I got lots of exercising in last week! Which is true...but I can't stop thinking about a lot of other things that are also true:

I've eaten too many of my exercise calories.

I haven't measured my food out-I've been guesstimating in my head.

I stopped drinking my green smoothies every day.

I've let myself eat junk late at night and not recorded it into MFP.

I've eaten more and more processed foods and less and less natural ones.

I knew, in the back of my mind, what the scale would say today. I've noticed that I've stopped FEELING smaller. I knew things were at a halt, but I guess I just had to see the confirmation on the scale.
I'm not going to beat myself up too much. This is a process, and I know what I have to do. All in all, I've still lost 13 pounds over the holiday season. BUT its time to recommit. So here I go. Wish me lots of shrinkage.


  1. Here is to lots of shrinkage for the both of us!

  2. I am recommiting to all my goals as well so let's take these difficult steps together!

  3. You know what I thought this weekend, when I was reaching for snacky stuff that I did not need?? I thought "how much do I hate to diet?? Answer: ALOT Response: then stop cutting corners and get it done already and get to goal so you can maintain and eat normal (not fatty though) foods again"

    That was the conversation in my head. I am just so dang tired of dieting and weight eecking off slowly or not at all. Just because I look BETTER doesn't mean I am where I want to be. Does this hold for you, too?

  4. Here's to lots of shrinkage!!! As for my secret, I don't really have one. Wait...I have been doing South Beach. To be honest, I haven't followed it strictly. As you may have read, I am learning to make better choices; I cheat once a week, and I exercise twice a day. That's it!!!

  5. Wishing you lots of shrinkage!! :) You can do it!!!

  6. Heres to shrinkage for you and me both! I have definitely put on the pounds over the holiday season and it's time to get back on track!

  7. I had an awful time during the holidays. But (i put all this in my post today) I have to say I never was scared that I would go back to the old me and gain all my weight back. Nope...and neither will you!


  8. Hey! I found your blog when I googled images of weighing in and see that your going through the same struggle I am right now. Don't get discouraged...keep going. You have lot of people that support you! I know it's really hard because you put in so much effort and then when it doesn't show on the scale it can be devastating, but it will so keep going!! Feel free to add me and we can support each other through this. I want to be 145 by the end of the year. With enough support I know we both can do it!!! HANG IN THERE!!
