Hello Dolls and Kens.
Today I wanted to speak about my weight loss journey and a few road bumps that I battle with on a pretty constant rate. Fluctuating weight.
I have always had this problem. It’s never been drastic but it’s enough(on the scale) to bring me down or bring me up. It has been two full weeks of my getting-in-shape-and-eating-healthy lifestyle and I have to admit, I’ve done pretty well. Yes, I’ve had some not so healthy meals or snacks but I’ve kept my portions pretty well maintained and have worked out everyday, even if just a little bit. I weighed myself this past Saturday to have an accurate weight for my initial CGGS:HL post and I was 215lbs. I weighed myself today (something was telling me not too, I should have listened) and I’m at 219.5 pounds. This shouldn’t upset me as I am used to this thing happening.
I will magically lose 5 or so pounds one week, or at the very beginning of working out and eating healthy, then the next week I will have gained not only the lost pounds but 5 extra pounds on top of that. As I said before, this is something that has been happening for a long time. I should be used to it. Am I? Nope. Not one bit. I understand weight does that sometime and it could be muscle weight that I am gaining but it’s still a let down to see that weight come back before I even see a significant change in my body (for the better). I didn’t eat that healthy today, granted, but I still counted my calories and I am only over my goal by 200. That can’t add 5 pounds back on the body. One pound is equal to 3500 calories, from what I hear. So what is going on? Why is this happening? I’m not stressed. I work out. I eat right. What’s the deal???
I know that this is only a part of my journey but I can’t help but get frustrated by what I see. I feel healthier but I see more than what I started with. I just have to continue practicing to accept things that I cannot control and deal with them as they come. I am still a work in progress.
On that note, I’ll be going. Talk to you all in my next post!
Stay happy. Live. Love. Laugh.
