So Frustrated

UGH. Double UGH!

I did not lose one single, solitary ounce today. How can that be!? I had 1 apple and 1 salad with chicken yesterday. I don't understand at all. Now I'm unsure as to whether I should do another apple day, and eat 5 apples like you're supposed to, if I should fast until dinner or if I should eat normally; well, eat the normal HCG diet way. I'm leaning towards eating normally because I'm worried maybe my body thinks I'm trying to starve it.

It's so frustrating to be so strict with yourself and then have a day of no change. I'm trying to focus on NSV (non-scale victories) today.

*I wore a pair of jeans on Sunday that I haven't been able to fit into in 5 years. They are pre-children pants, and they are a JUNIORS size 13.

*Today I tried to wear a pair of shorts that I couldn't button or zip a few weeks ago. They are too big. I don't want to pull a Dawnie and have my pants around my ankles today, so I had to change. ;-)

*I can see in the mirror that I am significantly smaller.

*I have lost 26 pounds. I'm over half way to my goal.

*My rings are getting too big and will need to be re-sized. I'm waiting until I hit my goal weight to do it, though.

*My back fat is drastically reduced. There aren't any lumps and rolls anymore, unless I scrunch down in my seat and lean over. :-D

*My rear end looks/fits better in my nice undies from Victoria's Secret.

Whew, just typing that out helped me feel better. And remember that life is not all about losing weight. It's a part of my life, right now, but it's not the most important thing. Not by a long shot. So I'm off to have a good day with gremlins, um, I mean children, who apparently have no need for sleep. ;-)

Hmmm, it seems I've lost my cursor. Weird. I can't tell where I am on the page. Guess that's my cue to get off the computer!

  1. maybe you should just weigh twice a week?~ cause a few ounces up/down/not budging each day is normal...what counts is the overall loss over an extended period of time.
