I have to admit, after last week's weigh-in I felt rather disappointed. It's been hard getting back into my previous routine and I've been watching what I've been eating and exercising so I was incredibly shocked when I gained last week.
Panic starts to set in and I start thinking "What if this is it, what if I never lose weight beyond this point. What if I keep gaining from here on out!."
Then I run over worst case scenarios and think of all the negative solutions I've used before like crash dieting, bulimia, etc...
Which I know are temporary solutions to a permanent problem so all last week I measured everything. I took account for everything I ate, every workout was logged in.
Sometimes I get so lazy about doing so but I really needed to see results.
It still wasn't enough for me so on Monday morning I was on the treadmill for two hours before weighing in. Scale said I lost 4.2 lbs.
Now, I know that some of that fluctuation is caused by the workout but I did it, I lost some weight this week!
My cycle which for the most part is very regular has been wonky lately and I'm very late this month. Last week I was seriously mad puffy and my hormones have been out of control but still - nothing!?!
Maybe stress? The past two weeks have been rather stressful because of the whole IRS thing.
After loads of phone calls and paperwork, I sent the IRS this bulky envelope defending what was submitted on my 2005 tax return. I just hope for a positive resolution to this entire matter as I was not at fault.
So far things are on the up and up this week and I've been sticking to the same routine.
