A Case of the Moooondays

It's Groundhog Day. I got on the scale this morning and it said 233.0 which means a total change of zilch this week. I was a little taken aback because I didn't expect to hit a bump so soon. In the past when I've "plateaued" it's always actually been because I wasn't being honest. I was telling myself that I was "dieting" but I was really eating cake or not measuring my food or something like that.

This week was different. By the numbers (calories in/out) I should have lost 2.24 pounds this week. This just shows what an inexact science this is (or does it have to do with my nutritional deficiencies that I mentioned in my last post?). I guess that sometimes you can do the right thing and get garbage results.

Another time, I would have thrown my hands up and hightailed it to the nearest bakery for some baklava. This time, I'm giving my body more time. I know that if I stick with it, I have to lose weight eventually. That's just the way it is. At least, even if I didn't lose weight, I grew stronger in the habits that will help me reach my goal. A week spent remaking myself is well spent.

Here's to a healthier week!

I'm sorry your diligence did not result in the numbers on the scale changing....but you are SO RIGHT that there is more to it than the scale! You did have a Victory this were honest with yourself, you were disciplined, and you reinforced the 'good' habits you want to be your life.

I'd say don't be discouraged! It'll HAVE to come off if you continue to do things right.

I'm willing to bet that you'll make up for it at the next weigh in if you keep it up.

This happens to me all the time.
