My Weighty Story: Stupid Body!

Happy Friday peoples!

happy-friday-0804

Well today was weigh day, and no matter how many times I stepped on the darn scale this morning, it gave me the same depressing news. I gained 2 lbs this week.

Granted, my food wasn’t perfect, I didn’t work out EXACTLY like I was supposed too, but I still don’t think that should cause me to GAIN 2 lbs.  So yes, I’m a bit ……. WELL FRUSTRATED!

See here is the thing. my size 18 jeans are still getting looser, HECK they would fall off my rear if I didn’t have a belt on. By the way, said belt had to be tightened another notch this week! WOOWOO. Plus looking in the mirror, I saw changes this week.

For instance, that lower belly fat that just HANGS out there… yes I know, not exactly the mental picture you want just after you eat or getting ready to have a snack, right? Well the skin in that area is getting much looser. I can see that. I noticed that. It just seems looser than just last week.

Who knows, maybe I’m just kidding myself. Maybe my brain lied to me. Maybe I want to see those changes, and they aren’t necessarily there. I haven’t kept measurements, so I don’t know if I’m losing inches over weight. Heck, maybe its just water weight. I don’t know. It’s just so frustrating!

But then again, I had this conversation with my body on the way to work this morning.

Body: Maybe it’s because your having your Skinny Cow deserts every night or every other night.

Brain: But they are fit into my daily calories.

Body: But they still contain milk and lactose, and well you know they don’t like me much.

Brain: I know but they taste so good.

Body: But they don’t like ME, and I try to tell you by breaking out in welts, but you don’t listen to me. Plus you had a Starbucks Caffe Latte with REAL, granted non-fat, but REAL MILK! I even gave you indigestion for all that dairy!

Brain: Ok, fine, I’ll cut out the treats this week.

Body: Not all treats… Watsonville is still harvesting strawberries. You could have fresh fruit for desert.

Brain: Mmmm strawberries and cool whip.

Body: *cough*

Brain: Ok fine! Just the strawberries.

Body: And don’t forget you only have 8 days now until you try to kill me in San Jose.

Brain: I know. I know. I’m freaking out here.

Body: We can do it, it’s just going to be hard and you need to keep me moving this week, or I will crap out on  you that Sunday morning.

Brain: /hangs head ( but not too low because I was driving to work after all )

Body: Just feed me right this week, and I’ll be ok.

Brain: But we have never done this before.

Body: Your testing me, I know that. We can do this. I feel strong.

Brain: But you gained weight this week!

Body:  Reaches over and turns on…

Brain: YOU WALK THROUGH HELL WITH A SMILE……

YOU CAN THROW YOUR HANDS UP;

DEDICATE YOURSELF AND YOU CAN FIND YOURSELF;

STANDING IN THE HALL OF FAME!!!

  1. So what that you gained 2 pounds, on the bright side you had to tighten your belt, and your pants are getting looser by the day! So a WOOHOO is in order, good for you; losing weight is not easy. Been there done that and still working on that.

    • Thank you for the encouraging words. Your right, there are other ways of measuring success than just the scale.

      I did tighten my belt and more over than just my pants just getting looser, I actually bought a pair that are a smaller size!

So whatcha thinking?
