Hello everybody… As you’ve known if you have read my blog previously, I’ve been stuck in the 178-180’s for a long time, a year now… I count calories, I run, I exercise… and nothing… my body refuses to let me lose weight… and trust me… it’s not any good kind of weight that I’m talking about… it’s fat, it’s around the waist… it’s disgusting, not muscle fat… Sometimes I lose some, sometimes I gain some… which is very discouraging when you’re doing all the stuff you’re supposed to do… when you’re doing stuff that works for everybody else and that’s worked for yourself in the past already!
So… the other day I was having a “fat day” … I was feeling heavier and even running was harder, I thought it was just in my mind so I stepped on the scale to “feel better” because I was sure it would show a loss, it had been 4 days since I had last weighed myself and since I continue to daily have a deficit of 750 calories I convinced myself I would see a lower number this time… I stepped on the scale (Wii Fit Balance Board) and it showed I gained 5 pounds! 5 pounds!!!!! and I am almost back to the Obese category (honestly! If I gain just 1 more oz. I will be there!) I started bawling! I called my husband and asked him to consider taking me to the dr. or something… This doesn’t make sense… it’s not normal! I felt down the whole day! Particularly because just the day before I made cake/cookies to share with friends here at the house and I didn’t even allow myself to have a cookie! so… it doesn’t make sense I gained at all!
(Here are some pics of my baked goods)
I hope I can go to a dr. soon… I need to know if this is hormonal or what is going on! In the mean time I continue to run and I’ll have my 5k on Saturday… I already ran “mock 5ks” at the park and I know I “got it” but my knees sure feel the extra weight…
