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……

  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.

    1. 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?
