Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Argh! I can't loose for trying! Yes, that's what I said ... I can't loose for trying. Last night's weigh in didn't go well, for some strange and unknown reason I GAINED A POUND! Argh!!!! I had a good week, tracked everything, and exercised a lot! I just don't get it. Why does it get so hard at the end?

I haven't stitched much in the last few days, so there's nothing to show you.

weight is a funny thing, it'll probably average out next week, probably with a loss. I've been exercising for a month so far, and my weight is fluctuating, but not really going down... Don't despair, you've done amazingly well so far and are a real inspiration to us 'fatties'.

YOu can do it! The last few pounds are the worst (I've heard!). Keep thinking positive, it WILL come off!

You have done so well and are such an inspiration to so many of us - don't despair! Next week will be good and just think how good you feel and it you go up a pound, you can go down a pound. We are in this together!

Chiloe said...

Don't they say we can gain a pound around our period time? COuld it the muscle weighting more than fat? YOu are doing so good !!! Keep the good work ;-)

Hang in there Dani - you've accomplished so much already - I just know you'll reach your goal. :)

Don't despair! I know from my past experiences with WW, that these things happen and pass. You will do great next week, simply because you are that much more determined! Thank you for all your encouragement in my travels with WW!

{{big hug}} this week is now over, roll on next week. You'll get there Dani

I didn't read all the comments, so probably what they've said, but... muscle weighs more... fluid retention... clothing... Just hang in - next week will be more than you expected!

Ah, Dani, I know you're so disappointed, but hang in there and keep up the good work. Those pounds will go away, but concentrate on the good changes you've made in your diet and routines and keep on it! Hugs. :)

You've done great so far. As I start a workout routine, I think of how great you've done and I know that it can be done. Muscle does weigh more, so just think of it as becoming a bit more buff. I know you'll do great next week.

Lynne said...

You are doing wonderfully !!
Just keep repeating Muscle is heavier than fat, Muscle is heavier than fat !!

the water in the body (for lunar thing) change in the mounth, so maby is for that reason for the pound.

They say the toughest weight to loose is the last few pounds, don't despair!

Hi Dani,

Go ahead and vent!! Yell and
throw things. Wave your arms
in the air and jump up and down!
When you're done protesting
that 1 pound weight gain and
worked out your frustrations
you'll have most likely lost that
1 pound again. It'll work. Go
for it! And it'll feel so good!!

Your Maple Leaf finish is
pretty awesome. I was admiring
the colours and the shadowy
maple leafs in the background
when I suddenly realized that
there were faces in the body
of the leaf! DOH! Cool!
Sir John A. a wolf, a salmon
and small maple leaf. Did I
miss anything??

Crazy weather these days eh??
Thankfully the worst seems to
be behind us now and although
it'll be cold again at least
the sun will be out. I'll
take it.

Hope the headaches at night are
easing up. Don't over do the
stitching and strain your eyes.

That must be really frustrating, Dani. Stick with it, I'm sure you'll have a better week next weigh in. :)

It's tough when you get down so far...Don't be too hard on yourself.
I gained a lb too. Could be the rainy weather...that works for me lol.
Good luck for next week . Keep up the GOOD work!

Hang in there kiddo!

Joanie said...

Next week you'll see a loss! Just keep focused and you will see a loss next weigh in!

Thanks for the inspiration and advice.
