I think for a lot of us the reason why we can't stay off of the scale that sits on the bathroom floor staring back at us is because we want someone,something to tell us that what we are doing is working! We need to know that all this hard work is paying off. I need to know that eating 1200 calories every day last week and writing down every last thing I put in my mouth and every step I took on the treadmill and documented was going to help me lose such and such pounds that week.
Sooo...You then go over a week without weighing and then two weeks and then three weeks. There is NOTHING giving you(me)that validation I need. That I need to to say hey you are losing weight and doing exactly what you should be doing. So keep doing what you are doing.
The first 2 weeks I think were fine..But Now...I am struggling!!! I HONESTLY feel like I have gained weight. It may all be in my head. That may very well be. TOM was here and I get really bloated but it passed 2 days ago and I still feel the same and I also noticed that my jeans felt a bit tight. I just donut feel quite the same.
So I am looking for a bit of advice. I like to finish what I start. Should I keep going and go the month. Or should I just go to 3 weeks.
I am REALLY sick right now. I am still an emotional eater. At no time have I said that I have been cured! So since I feel like CRAP I have wanted to eat. I have had 3 pieces of chocolate today and even had peanut butter on toast last night. I bought PB2..But NO I use REGULAR peanut butter??? I guess I was too lazy to mix the PB2. That is my best guess.
So I was thinking maybe this next week I can try and lose whatever I gained this past week so that I am not disappointed.I am torn on what to do?? Go ahead and weigh this week or wait it out??
I can tell you this! I will NEVER do this again. I need that scale. I need to know that what I am doing is working. Or even if I need to make a slight adjustment because in the past the SLIGHT adjustments have made a difference.
I am totally torn!
