Seeing Red

Today's weigh in was frustrating. I know that I should now be past the point where a single weigh in on a single day can frustrate me, but I'm human and it still bugs me.

I was up half a pound today.

I know that a day or two from now that 10oz will be gone, but I still wanted to see success today. I know that I have not worked as hard this week because of my birthday this past weekend, but I still worked hard and I wanted to see some result.

I know that there is nothing that I can do about it, but I'm still upset and mad. At first I was made that I ordered the bacon/alfredo pasta on my birthday, but then I remembered that I also watched what I ate all day and said no to dessert. I made that decision and was happy with it and I am not going to regret one meal out of 21 for the week.

I am going to continue to work hard and go to the gym and weigh myself in a few days at which time I hope to write another blog with a happier tone.


  1. I was up a pound from yesterday. Don't let it get to you! It's gonna go down as long as you stay focused!

  2. Oh, Darlin' don't I hear ya!!!??!!!

    I understand the frustration and you are absolutely allowed to feel it. I think you did the right thing by eating what you wanted on your birthday. Life is going to happen and our weight is going to fluctuate, but by oz and not lbs.

    Be frustrated....but let it become motivation and not defeat!

    You are doing a great job.

  3. I understand how you feel. Seeing that scale go up sucks! But just keep going. Maybe next week, you'll lose double :) Good luck and Great job. Keep it up!

  4. Also remember muscle weighs more and will add to your weight but burn more fat. You can do this!
