Defeated. Discouraged. Disappointed.

I'm totally trying to not let these words be my mantra for 2011. But so far? No such luck.

I barely broke the 200lb mark before Christmas. It was a big celebration with a new playlist and everything.

And then I gained back 4 pounds in 5 days over Christmas break. And it WILL NOT GO AWAY. I thought maybe I was just bloated. I thought maybe if I took it easy on the crap for a couple of days and went back to eating on plan and drinking my water that it would just GO AWAY. Yeah. No such luck.

I just had a super week. I tracked every day. I had a totally under-indulgent weekend (which is totally not the norm for me) and I exercised. I even cut out sugar and "ate clean". You want to know how much I lost? 0.8. Not even one stinking pound.

I know that I just need to stick to it and keep it up, and blah, blah, blah... But seriously, what the heck is going on?????

I hate when that happens! You already know the answer - hang in there! You might also evaluate your food logs - I stalled a few weeks ago and realized I let half and half creep back into my coffee. I didn't even think about it until I looked back at my logs; then I noticed I was tracking 2 TBL of H/H but wasn't actually measuring it - I was eyeballing...DANGEROUS!

I know that slow is good and healthy. And I know that .8 pounds is almost 4 whole sticks of butter. And I know that this is forever so it shouldn't matter how long it takes.

But you know what? Sometimes it sucks when your body doesn't give you the loss you think you deserve.

I'm sorry you are going through that today!

On Jan 1st I ate all fruits and veggies to get rid of the holiday crud. I knew it would be hard. But it's ONLY 1 day. It worked wonders. Down 2 pounds from that day. It was to cleanse my system and it did. Banana's filling, tomato soup and even a plain baked potato helped get me through the day. Try it! You'' get back down. I know it! Thanks for the comment earlier it lifted my spirits!

I remember feeling that way once. I'm still scared of going back to the 200 lbs mark. All I can say is you will be back under and soon if you keep it up. There is so much junk in our bodies from the holidays sometimes it takes a while to get it all out. I hope you feel better soon.

I totally get it, Kendra. I gained 1.6 over the holiday break. I had an awesome week last week and thought it would be a 3 pound loss. No such luck. I only lost .6 and I was so discouraged and mad. I weigh again tomorrow. Today I'm splurging on new running shoes. I can't seem to break the 170 barrier and it's frustrating me. Maybe this will help. My current shoes are just hurting me.
