Day who the heck knows?

OK, so I forgot what day I'm on. I haven't messed up though. I've exercised each day. I've tracked my food each day. I've stayed OP each and every stinkin day. So, why, when I snuck a peek at the scale today did it show a gain? What the hell is up with that?

Tomorrow is my weigh in day. I'm not holding out hopes. It's so freaking frustrating to do everything right and show a gain. I never thought it was possible. I always heard people say 'I was really good but I gained'. I thought they were lying. At the very least, I thought they were fooling themselves. You know the kind...oh I put creamer in my coffee but I don't count it. Oh I added barley to my soup but I didn't count it. Oh I crushed up 2 packages of Oreo's into my sugar free pudding but that doesn't count! Helloooooo just because you don't count it doesn't mean it doesn't count. Well, I counted.

I'm going to go to bed now and dream of a .2 loss for tomorrow. Whatever happens I'll keep on for another week. Maybe my body is adjusting to exercise. Maybe it's in shock. Maybe a miracle will happen and I'll lose 4 pounds over night.

Where the hell is that Pixie dust when I need it????


  1. Good luck.... I am sending some pixie dust your way!! LOL Keep up the great work though....don't let a few bumps in the road get you off track...!!

  2. I had that happen on Wednesday. It was the first week that i had stepped up my exercise so I think that had a big role in it. I also had a pretty sodium packed dinner the night before which is bad.

    Plus most people weigh something different on different days.

    Just luck. Try not to let it get you down if you do gain. It caused a lot of troubles with my motivation and I'm just now getting back to it.

  3. I know it can be so frustrating. The human body and the scale will always be at odds. You just never know what is going to show up.

    I will be thinking positive things for you and hoping the scale is kinder to you!

  4. Also of course muscle is heavier than fat. And you have been exercising. More muscle! Less fat! A bit heavier perhaps - - but thinner.
