Good morning, Fatsecret!

Yesterday, I felt like I did a horrible job.

I was at home. Bad weather. Nothing to do. No band jamming. Nothing. so, I eat. As I do when I'm bored. Way past RDI, stopped counting. Dammit. Why is it that I do this? Why is it that I just can't do frickin' right? This frustrates me.

I'm happy I have a Low Cal Day today. I feel uncomfortable. I'm bloated. (TMI warning) I keep frickin' farting! lol.

So, I get on my scale this morning, to estimate the damages, and my scale is dead. Completely dead. I tried replacing the batteries, but nada. Zip. Bummer.

So, I have no idea how much I destroyed yesterday. I can only guess that it's a lot, because I can literally feel the difference.

I can't wait to shake that feeling off of me today. I'm gonna work hard on it.

Still, overall - I will have a calorie deficit over the course of the week. I know that. I am sure of that. The damages on the whole are not devastating, but the results won't be a good as I hoped.

This sucks, because I am trying to set up my new system, and I really need those numbers good and straight to see what I'm doing.

Oh, well. Nothing I can do about it now.

Life goes one, my diet goes on. I'm on track today, and will be for quite a while. :)

Life is good!

Hang in there and do right today. Those days are frustrating, when you just can't say no, but keep busy and forget it. :)

UPDATE: So, I took an extra look at the scale, and I find now faults, other than the fact that it's not working. I'll be buying a new one today. Can't go without a scale. Of coruse, this brings up the issue of not knowing where I am in comparison with the old one. Not on weight, or fat percentage or anything. I guess it'll simply be "starting over" with the new weight, and take it from there. I can do that. Today is Low Cal Day. It's now almost 10 AM, and I'm doing fine. I've been up for 6 hours, and I have NO hunger. Not even peckish. Lunch with Wife is in one hour, and I'll just go watch her eat and take a break. I'll have a cup of coffee, and some water. Life is good. I feel on track again.

What a pain in the €=¥¥. Let's hope the new scale is about the same as your old one.... Soooooooo frustrating. Still... You can treat it as a new start :-)

Pam, that's what I like to think, lol. Nobody can prove that I screwed up over the weekend. THen again, I can't prove if I did good. It's all up in the air. :) I'm not too worried about the weight gain/loss, whatever it is. I'm feeling better today NOT eating. I'm actually more curious as to what fat percentage it will measure. I know my old one is wrong. There's just no way I was ever at 4%, not even at 75 kgs.

I think if you buy the same type scale, if you were please with the old one, should give you similar results. I used to be a "South Carolina Certified Scale Mechanic", so take it from an expert. Surprised home scales have no methods to calibrate them accurately.

Bummer Keld. I have an inkling of how you might be feeling. It will be little comfort for you to hear that after a low calorie day yesterday (500, following my feast day on Saturday) the scale only declined 1 measly pound. Didn't have any problem going up 3.6 lbs following feast day!!! Hope you locate a new scale today and have a most successful low calorie day!!! Enjoy my friend!!! Glad you are feeling a little better.

I like how you handle things that are out of your just roll with it and move on. Can't enjoy the ups if you don't have the downs, I say. Hope the rest of your low cal day is smooth sailing! By the way, very intrigued by your new method.....and tempted.

I hate to say it but I love that you also have bad days and you are not always perfect and you mess up and get mad at yourself too. You are normal after all! you have your low cal day today and you will make up for it I know you will.

One day does not a life make - you've been doing so fabulous for so long. If your body said 'let's eat for the day' it needed it ~ for whatever stupid unhealthy reason other than to reinforce your resolve. Today it is 'booming' at you 'okay, good, thanks... ' but not giving you a comfortable feeling because it doesn't want to do it again. You may not like the looks of it but why not go back and try to remember and record it? As much as I beat myself up over a stupid binge of mayonnaise I recorded it because I wanted to read and remember what 'eating wrong' looks like. Otherwise, it would have been to easy for me to have selective memory. But that's just me.

FullaBella, you're absolutely right. Usually, I record my bad days. This time, I didn't. I completely agree that it's necessary, so we can go back and see "what went wrong". :)
