Weigh-in .....I feel like I lost 3 weeks!

I was shocked to discover this morning that my weight was up by 0.6 lbs this week. I really don't know why. I have had a good week with my eating, and I even cut out all grains and processed carbs this week. I expected more.

However, if there is one thing I have learned in this whole "Healthy Life" journey, it is that the scale does not always reflect our efforts. Or our failures. It goes both ways. So though I am a bit disappointed, I am not discouraged.

I do feel like I "lost" three weeks though...I looked at my stats, and was basically at the same weight three weeks ago! So I have not made progress in any visible manner in those three weeks.

What can't be seen on the scale however, is that I am back to regular exercise again, and I am out of the whole craving sweets mode that was a result of Christmas treats. So I would say I am ahead of the game. I feel good physically, except for a bit of muscle soreness from pushing myself a little in the exercise dept. Here's hoping that a great result shows up on the scale by next week!! :)


  1. Hey, it can be really hard to figure out what is going on inside a body! My scale hasn't been wanting to move either, but I keep getting comments from family members about how different I'm looking. Something has got to be happening somewhere, right? lol I bet your exercise is just paying off. :o )

    (Oh, and ALL sweets call my name. lol The malted milk balls are actually safer, because they make me feel sick if I eat too many of them. Who knew that nausea was a good thing? *laughs*)

  2. It's so plays with our minds. Some weeks you do really well only to jump on the scale confident, and see a gain. Then other weeks you eat like a pig and see loss.
    I know how it feels. It's been two years of battling this.
    Keep it up!! It will pay off.

  3. I like how you looked at all the positive changes you have made and are not just focusing on the scale! You are doing great and a .6 gain is nothing; it'll be off in no time!

    Thanks so much for your solution to my brownie dilema! I have thought about you all day and you really did help me through that! I gave ya a shout out on my blog - thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Just keep on plugging along and you'll see a loss soon!

    I'm doing my 15 minutes(and more) a day of strength. Thanks for the challenge!
