So last month was great, fantastic, wonderful, exciting, productive, etc. etc.
August... (Sorry, guys. This is a pure rant... feel free to skip it. But I just have to get this out.)
Oh, August. I was excercising a lot and eating not very much, and I only lost a pound by my first August weigh in. I thought, Ok, don't panic,
So I kept going, and I wasn't losing anything!!!! At all... Seriously though, I was eating little, and working out a lot! I thought, How can this be???
I decided, that maybe I'm not eating enough for all this excercise, so I started eating proper lunches (instead of a piece of fruit like I did for the last few weeks), and just overall making sure that I'm NOT ever getting too hungry during the day. All natural food, no processed sugars, nothing crazy, protein and veggies for dinner, etc. So I did that for a few days and still no change. But I wasn't going to be some poopy complainer, and I just kept at it. I maintained that same regiment yesterday and in the evening I alternated walking and a slow jog for 4.7 miles (1.5 hours) and I thought, for sure by this point the scale will reflect my efforts...
And this morning I did see a change! UP BY ONE POUND?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!
I'm not giving up, BUT what the heck is going on??????????
I've never been in a situation where I cannot explain my weight gain. EVER. Usually when I gain weight, I know that I had done something to deserve that. But here... I am at a loss for words.
Anyway, thanks for listening to my rant
