Reason to Exercise #5: Because I want to wear shorts and sleeveless tops during the summer.

Today is the day for my weekly weigh in... and I refuse to do it. I weighed myself on Saturday actually just out of curiosity, because I was doing better last week, so I thought surely I've lost at least a pound, maybe even two... WRONG!!! I GAINED TWO POUNDS! WHAAAAT?!?! This news sent me into my standard downward spiral of depression over being fat and that I'll always be fat no matter how hard I try, which in turn lead to me spending my entire friggin weekend on the couch having a Xena Warrior Princess marathon (YES I LIKE XENA! DON'T YOU JUDGE ME! *wink wink* I like any show or movie showing a woman kickin some serious booty. I guess that's because I'm so shy and generally let people walk all over me that I wish I could do that, but I'm getting off topic...) while stuffing my face with chips and Reeses. And when I say all day... I mean ALL FRIGGIN DAY!!!

Now that the weekend is over, and I'm back at work and was forced off the couch, I'm feeling better. I suppose I'll spend this week trying to exercise away everything I ate Saturday and Sunday. THEN I'll weigh myself next week! At the very least maybe I can break even and resume weight loss next week. I don't think the Fruit Loops I ate for breakfast will help this cause very much though?!

Don't get discouraged by a pound or two up on the scale...I KNOW its easier said than done because I get discouraged too...but its normal for the body to fluctuate like that. Even if you do get discouraged don't feed your depression with junk food lol. But good job starting back on it today. Even when you do fall off the wagon for a day or two you can just bounce back. I'm sure if you stick to it you will see a loss your next weigh in :) Good luck

Oh how I recognise this pattern!!! Except with me, it's Stargate instead of Xena! ;-) Two possible reasons you may be up on the scale (apart from eating too much): (a) time of the month or (b) you're converting fat to muscle, if you're working out. Hey, how about this: join a kickboxing class? I hate working out and last year, I joined a cardio-kickboxing class for a few weeks. I LOVED it! I also bought a punching bag which was brilliant for taking out my "fat frustration"... until I punched a little too hard and hurt my shoulder. So yeah, um, never mind that one. A supervised kick-boxing class would be Xena-like so I'm sure you'd find it a load of fun! But yeah, I've been in your boat many times. I think my couch has a me-shaped dent in it! LOL The weekends are evil... they, along with the couch, suck you right in with their promise of joy and happiness but don't listen to them! I know it's so hard though so perhaps next Saturday try doing activity in the morning first (even if it's just grocery shopping and running errands) and then you can relax for the evening and eat some healthy goodies you bought that morning. Throw out those Reeses & chips... I don't think Xena would approve ;-)

You know, I've given serious consideration to kick boxing before. It seems like that would be right up my ally. I may be large, but I am naturally muscular as well. Putting on muscle is something that has always been easy for me. It's loosing fat that's hard! And yes, it is my time of the month... which is another thing that contributed to the Reeses binge. The only problem though is that I can't really afford a gym membership. I keep trying to convince the hubby to get a punching bag, but we have no idea where we'd hang it. Maybe I'll re-work the budget and see if there is room for a kickboxing class in there. Thanks for the inspiration!
