one pound's thoughts

Back up to 264. I gained a pound. I knew I would. When one eats junk, one gains. Yeah, yeah.

It is hard to not feel incredible discouragement. Hard to not feel that the past two weeks have been a waste since I am back where I was two weeks ago.

But, I'm not back where I was, except with my weight. I can do much more physically. The things Mike, the personal trainer, has us doing... well, it shocks me that I can do it! I never thought I'd be able to do a squat, stay squatted and half-squat across the room. Amazes me. I amaze me. That is totally cool.

I am going to keep trucking along. Push through. I am going to work really hard this week, hoping to loose three pounds. Going to really watch what I eat and keep it healthy. Refrain from those "well just this once" treats and instead reach for fruit or veggies. Work my butt off [hopefully, literally!]

I'll keep ya posted.

You can push through it. Easter is such a holy holiday - so why is Easter candy such a devil???!!!

I feel your one pound gain, because I gained one too, lol. Like you told me, we'll get back on track.

Hang in there!

Just keep trucking, just keep trucking (in my mind that sounds like Dorie off of Nemo). You can keep on. Besides sometimes you build up your muscle and that is where that pound came from. I am proud that you can do the squats. The only squat I can do is when I sit on the toilet lol!!! YOu can do! I cant wait to your next weigh in!

How often do you use a trainer or work out? I ask this because you MAY be gaining muscle. Are you keeping stats on your measurements? Sometimes the scale doesn't move AT ALL or even goes up a couple pounds, but you lose many inches or lose a dress size. It's important to not let the scale alone dictate how you're doing. Just food for thought (no pun intended). :)

don't sweat 1 pound! You will lose that 1 pound and more soon enough :-)

I gained 1 pound over Easter weekend also, but I haven't admitted that on my blog yet. I'm trying not to admit it to myself. It's definitely resulted in an Oreo binge for me. Hmmm.

Anyways, I have an award for you on my blog today :-)
