Well… it seems leaving the 200s is much harder than I thought! Today the scale shows weight gain and I am not happy about that! Could it be liquid retention? Is my body just refusing to lose weight? is it my brain causing me to not lose more? Who knows!? But I am scared! and worried! And that doesn’t help! Look at my numbers:
Yesterday’s weight: 203.2 Today’s weight: 204.2
huh??? People I’ve read say that our bodies have a “memory” and they tend to get “stuck” in the weight where we’ve been for a long period of time… this is the weight where I’ve been for a long time because even when I’ve gained I go back to this always and then stay there for a while and then gain and then lose and stay right here… it seems this is the my limit! But I am GOING TO BREAK THAT BARRIER! I need to fight harder than ever to be able to LEAVE THESE NUMBERS! Last night was not the case… I ate more because I was REALLY REALLY HUNGRY… It was all good stuff… you know… chicken, rice, vegetables but It was more than the portion I usually get… I don’t regret it though… I was TRULY AND HONESTLY VERY HUNGRY… I felt like I needed that… I also think I need to increase my water intake, yesterday I went out and decided to not drink as much water because it makes me go to the bathroom every 15 minutes… and then I didn’t go to the gym… it was another late day for hubby at work… –sigh– so … I know all of those factors combined contributed to my not only not losing but gaining… ugh! Frustrating… today will be a GREAT DAY! I know! and I will leave these 200s soon! even if it takes longer than I had originally planned… it’s ok! I am going to get there!
