Why is it, just when you think that you are kicking butt in the weight loss department, you GAIN weight!?

It is almost as though God is sitting there going, "Wait! I know you are totally pumped about the weight loss you have been experiencing lately, but honestly, I think you need to put a few pounds back on just for Sh*ts and giggles...."

Truly frustrating especially when you know you worked hard the day before, and I did work out very hard yesterday. I burned 1132 calories and all of it was cardio that I did yesterday!

Then there is the ever classic, "You're not getting enough fluilds" comment...which is true. Probably the reason why I went up ever so slightly on the scale is because I just didn't drink enough fluids.

Isn't it amazing how, after keeping a fitness and food journal for over a year, you can easily pin point what went wrong right away?

The body is an amazing thing....

Dear BDDB,

I can totally understand about bad news. I have had my share of it lately, trust me. I have.

I have lost my mother and my boyfriend and had a hysterectomy all within a 3 week span. It's definitely not easy to go on with or even think of a diet when you are stressed and confused. It is definitely a difficult thing to do.

However, within days of my mother's passing, I took baby steps....a little at a time....towards keeping up with my weight loss goals. I have been eating within my carb limit (I basically follow the Atkins diet) and I have been exercising as much as I possibly can.

However, with my surgery that happened only 5 days ago, I haven't been able to do very much in the way of exercise. However, I WILL get myself back in the game little by little over the course of the next several weeks before I have to get back to work. I have 6 weeks off from work, so I am pretty sure that I can bust through those last 12.6 pounds I have left to lose to get to my goal weight.

And you can too.

Just take it one day at a time...and do what you can. But-never give up.

This past year was tuff. It started out great so I started weight watchers. I was doing very good. Then last summer my sister was diagnosed with cervical cancer and so I tried to stay on my "life style change". But I let my emotions get the better of me. That lasted atleast 3 months. When she was cleared for the year I got back on track and for a month did well. I lost what I gained while we were dealing. Then my uncle got sick. For two months I was trying to be with him and take care of my family and stressing over finances that I let my emotions get me again. Sadly he passed away and I got really depressed. I am on prozac and am back on the "life style change". I promis to myself to not let my emotions get me this year. I cant be there for anyone if I am unhealthy.
