Days 55, 56, 57 – Still here

No, I didn’t fall off the face of the earth nor did I meet my own 2 pound weight loss challenge.  When I started working out this week I actually ended up gaining instead of losing and that made me a bit bummed  I want to go below 200 so bad that the thought of gaining almost sent me into cardiac arrest.  I ended up with a 4 ounce weight loss for the entire week.  I do want to shout my kudos to David over at for meeting and exceeding my challenge…BIG WIN!  : )  Four ounces is still four ounces though and I will take it!  : )  Yay me!

I am trying to understand why my body does not ever seem to want to go below 200.  It is almost a personal fight against my own body and I have arrived at this place before.  Shhhh, don’t say anything but I am going to trick my body this week by mixing things up a bit.  I am going to change up my foods and increase my water intake.  I am saying this at a whisper because if my body hears this, then you can bet it is going to fight to keep every ounce of fat packed on me!  There is no way I am staying at 205.2, it just is not happening.

I have to recognize that I have quite a bit of stress in my life right now and that I have to be kind to me.  I will remember to give myself credit for even the smallest of achievements.  It is Monday tomorrow and I will keep in mind it is the beginning of endless possibilities!

Good luck to all on your goals this week!

  1. There is no such thing as winning! You did an awesome job! Sometimes your body plays tricks on you and it is not a real gain even though it’s what the scale says, rather, it’s just water or muscle weight. This is particularly true for when you start to work out. It took 2-3 weeks for me to start seeing real results. So keep working hard and it will start to come off and you’ll be below 200!
