Ok so i know i am being stupid in writing this thread but i just want to let it out!
So at work we are doing a biggest loser competition. It was the second weigh in today. I did well in the first losing 1kg.
Now this week i have been really on plan, i have exercised at least once a day, but i mostly exercise 2 times (once in morning once in arvo). Ranging from 5-8km runs to strength training. I have been on plan with my food eating about 1300 calories during the week (it is low but i need to do that so i can eat a bit more on the weekend ) and on the weekend about 1500-1700 calories. I manage to fit a sort of treat meal in once a week, where i don't count calories but i dont go overboard. For example at my friends 21st dinner party. I had a small piece of steak 2 potatoes lots of salad 2 glasses of wine, and a piece of chocolate cake.
I get my calories from mostly wholefoods, about 80:20 ratio wholefoods versus packaged.
I then get to work on monday where the other 8 'biggest losers' are telling me their weekend diets. It consists of KFC, McDonalds, hotdogs, crackers and cheese, milkshakes, fish and chips and ALOT of slipping up. So im fairly confident when i walk in the door this morning to weigh in, because none of these people have been on plan (none of them exercise btw too).
However low and behold when i get on the scale this morning..ive gone from 74.8kg to 74.5kg...wow. I know its dumb to say its just not fair!! but come on, im NOT exagerating when i am telling you what my workmates have eaten! and im NOT exagerarting when i tell you how much ive been on plan!!
I know we have bad weeks and what not and its not about the number on the scale, but i just needed to vent, because if i went near KFC fish and chips, chocolate i would have put on 5 friggen kgs!!
It just makes me feel stupid and like all this work ive been doing is shot to ****, while i go out to lunch on the weekend and eat my salad and theyre out scoffing KFC chicken burgers! I normally dont care what people think but i sort of feel like they all think im lying about what i eat cos i didnt lose much weight, when really they should be taking a huge leaf out of my book!
Its strange, i cant really work out why, but ive never been able to get below 74 kg. ive lost weight before and i get stuck at 74 and just give up. Im not going to do that this time tho.
p.s. after the weigh in 2 of them ordered bacon and egg rolls from the shop across the road..
sorry for the rant, its ridiculous, but some times u just gotta tell someone!
