Setback...


I dont know what is going on. I have not lost any weight but gained instead. I could SCREAM!!

I have not been messing up. I wonder if its because of my portion size, but Im not going over my callories. There were a couple days I went about 200-300 over my calorie count but I cant see that being a big deal. I eat about 1400-1500 callories each day. Should I up that amount? Maybe my body needs a change.

A bloggy friend of mine just reached her 100 pound loss. CONGRATS Mommy2four. I hope to be where she is in a year.

So I have a set back. The good news is that I measured myself and I have lost a good inch and a half over all of my body. I know Im still going forward. I have not given up...but its very discouraging to see a gain instead of a loss for the first time.

My new job is of course a sitting down one. I am very careful not to eat the free snacks that are all around me. Instead I eat about a pint of cherry tomatoes each day...or I try to bring a veggie that I can just grab one at a time and pop them in my mouth. It makes you feel like your eating chips except it taste different. LOL

Im so impatient!!!

SIDE NOTE!

I just looked back on my blog and realized that I never posted when I got down to 272. The last time I posted it was 274. Just for the record...here is my 272.

Hey, if you're losing inches, don't be discouraged. I gained this week too, and I couldn't figure out why (I had the stomach flu, so I KNOW I wasn't overeating). Then I realized I'm probably retaining some water due to the crazy heat. So maybe it's something like that for you!

I hear ya sis. Sometimes it could be sugar intake, sometimes we just need to step up on excersize. I know you don't like to excersize, but you may be at a place where your body is telling you something. Not sure--this is just a guess of course. You are doing great though, and congrats on the inches lost!! ;-)
Love Ya

The ups and downs of weightloss can be irritating and confusing as you just experienced... I say "stay the course" dont make a change.. you havent been going long enough for changes... it could be water retention from aunt flow.. it could just be your body fluids building up a bit,, but the proof is in the pudding,, you're inches are going down and that is what you want. Also muscle weighes more than fat so if you have gained muscle from all that dancing you've been doing (wink) then that could be the issue too... just keep doing what you've been doing and you will see the weight drop.....

Hey, thanks for the shout out!

Cindie is right too, that water retention is a biggie, especially this time of year. I give myself 2-3 pounds of wiggle room. While I hate it when it's on the heavier end of things, I know that, unless I've been cheating a lot, it's most likely because Aunt Flo is coming to town, or it's been 8 kazillion degrees out and I haven't been drinking enough water!

Hope the new job is AMAZING!
