Weight-less Wednesday 3/25/2015


Weightless Wednsdays

I had a completely different post written for today, but instead I’ve chosen to be honest. Here goes.

If you are here for encouragement or uplifting words you might want to click away.  I have said a few times on the blog I was honest, I’m about to real. I’m going to share how I’m feeling and it’s not awesome.

I’m at the point of frustration.  The point where I’m frustrated at several things.  Beginning with myself.  My body is right there and the fact that it seems SO UNFAIR that I can’t have the things that taste deliciously good to me.  I know that last one sounded like a pitty party or the start of a temper tantrum.  But it’s the truth.

I stepped on the scale once again.  No loss.  Slight gain.  Could be water retention but who knows, probably not after the weekend where I inhaled like no tomorrow!  I’ve lost 8.4 pounds since December 27th.  I had hoped by this point I would have lost at least 15 pounds.

I am eating way more fruits and veggies than I did before and to be honest I don’t mind most of the time.  I do dislike going to the store so much to get fresh produce as that’s what I prefer.  But summer will be here soon and we will have a garden and farmer’s markets are great too!  Less impulse buying at those! 🙂  My water intake is usually at 80 oz or more a day and although I spend alot of time in the bathroom it’s ok.

Let’s talk body.  I think the main issue for me is the fact that I can’t exercise how I want.  Due to the hip/left leg/back issue I can’t just push through the pain.  I over did yesterday and I am paying for it today. (Note to self: listen to doctor)  When I can exercise like I want I feel like I can make up for those small cheats I may have had earlier in the day.  My mentality is SO much better when the walk goes good and the sunshine is present!  How about you?

So today’s post was a venting session, I do feel better and if you happen to be in a slump please know you are not alone.  I know that losing 8.4 pounds is an accomplishment but when you are at a point of just quitting it doesn’t seem like much.

See you next Wednesday!

Grace is a gift,

Julie

  1. Don’t quit! According to the scale at the gym, I gained 4 pounds between Sunday and yesterday. It takes 3,500 calories to gain or lose a pound, and I didn’t eat 14,000 calories in two days, so I’m going with water retention. I definitely understand the giving up feeling, but I’m trying to focus on little goals and the big picture. My feet aren’t letting me run like I’d like to, so I’m focusing on my arms. I want arms like Courtney Cox had at the beginning of Friends. It’s taking time, but I can see changes, and I’m learning to have fun lifting weights. I’m not thrilled with all of my body, but for now, that’s okay. I hope this doesn’t sound preachy. I was going for encouraging. In great part because I need to encourage myself to not quit as well. Slow progress is progress! And maybe tomorrow will get better.

  2. Vent away! Sometimes just saying or writing what is bothering you is better then anything else ! Everyone always says don’t give up! But sometimes it’s hard to keep going without any positive reinforcement. Especially when that stupid scale refuses to cooperate ! But that’s what we do! Surround ourselves with positive energy and people and keep movin!
