“Frustration” is the word for the day because all the hard work I’ve been putting in since I got home would appear to be futile at times. If I were the type of person to give up at the first sign of a struggle, I would have thrown in the “towel” years ago. But since I’m known as a very tenacious person, I dig my heels in a little harder and look that obstacle right in the eye and say, “I am better than this!” and keep moving forward.
Today, I stepped on the scale as I do every morning and have gained 10lbs since yesterday. Yes, 10 (ten) pounds! Yes, this is “normal” for me as I have a thyroid disease and this is typical. The frustration comes from the knowledge of doing everything I can possibly do to lose weight yet gaining is a raging battle that requires a lot more than average weaponry such as more exercise and less calories etc.
So today is counted as a “loss” in the battle but tomorrow is another day and that scale will not beat me!
