Unhappy 14 pounds in 35 days.

That is how my journey has gone so far. That's pretty good. I am really excited and proud of the 13.8 pounds. Then I get on the scale today and I have o]nly lost .2 pounds? I know I should be happy that it's a loss but.......I have worked SO FREAKING HARD this week. Why do I feel like such a failure? Why can't I just be happy with the total weight gone? That I am out of the 300's? I have been on the verge of tears all day. I just want ro crawl in bed and cry. Then I feel like I am acting like a big stupid baby. Sorry if I am sounding ungrateful and whiney. It's just been a bad day.

Most likely you are holding more water, gaining muscles, TOM near, etc. There are many factors assuming you are following your plan to a tee (no extra calories by eyeballing portions, etc).

Example: Yesterday I was 232, days before that 229. Today? 224. It's just numbers. I know it's hard to grasp but the scale shouldn't have power over you. You are doing a great job!

I stay on plan and measure everything. I know it's just a number and it should not have this affect on me but it does. Sadly.

You are doing amazing. And I completely understand, I was on the verge of tears myself all day. Despite what we've accomplished, sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel feels so far away. My advice is to let yourself cry. Cry for the sadness that is your disappointment (which you're allowed to have as long as it doesn't last too long or derail you) cry in happiness at the 14 pounds you've kicked to the curb and the milestone you've achieved by getting back into the 200's. Sometimes that emotional release is needed, and keeping it in just prolongs it.

When you're finished, do something nice for yourself. Take a bath, read the best parts of your favourite book, watch your favourite movie or tv show (as an aside I've been watching reruns of Justified cause nothing puts a smile on my face like Raylan Givens *sigh*) You deserve it.

You are doing amazing, JustB!!!! Hugs for you!!!

I have been in the same boat with my weightloss and the only thing we can do is keep up our good work!! The scale has to pay off eventually! I feel like a hostage being held by my scale right now but I know I will win the battle of wits if I just keep on my plan and trust my diet. I built up trust with my diet plan for the last 128lbs, it's not going to let me down now.

You have done so great, keep your chin up and your pretty smile beaming. You got this!!

Before you stepped on that scale and saw those numbers how did you feel about yourself this week?

I know I had a week that I worked hard and felt really great about the choices I am making and what I have accomplished physically. When I stepped on my scale this morning for WI and saw a .4 gain I wanted to cry BUT I reminded myself to look at the big picture (5lbs gone in 3 weeks so overall a loss for the month) but more importantly I remembered the pride I've felt today about my physical activity and I held on to that. Hopefully in the near future we'll both see a great result for all of this hard work with one of those "wow" WI weeks.

It is just a number, but still it can be really frustrating!! Before I even get on the scale, I have to say to myself "remember, you might see a bump, and if you do, it's not a real bump because you've been on plan..." even so, I get disappointed if I feel as if I am due for a loss and don't see one.

It also helps me to say to myself "uber, if you eat like a normal person every single day for a whole year, there is no way you will remain at X weight..."

Or sometimes I just roll up in a ball and cry. Hang tight and you'll see the drop soon enough.

Charliee Thank you so much!! Crying really does help sometimes!

Elvislover324 I definitely needed that hug! You are always so encouraging and helpful! Your post truly brought tears to my eyes! I have my fingers crossed that you make onederland tomorrow!

Ladypurl Thanks! I felt really great before I saw those numbers! I have been working hard and walking between 2 and 5 miles each day!

Ubergirl Thanks for the kind words and understanding!


This support and encouragement is why I have done as well as I have! Thanks everyone!!

I promise I didn't put a hex on you out of jealousy!

You probably burned fat but your water fluctuated. Look at a months worth of data to see if you're on track. WHICH YOU ARE!!!

In April I only managed to lose like 3lbs - in the whole month! I was disappointed at first but then I thought ok - if I only lose 3lbs a month I'm STILL going to be 36lbs lighter a year from now. Which is STILL SOOOOOO much better than gaining.

You are on the right path - just stay on it and eventually you'll get to your destination. Don't ever let a loss of any kind or even zero change get you down! That's the path to giving up.

I might suck at losing weight but I refuse to give up this time. You are rocking so you should DEFINITELY not give up.
