By all accounts, this shows a 0.4 pound loss this week, but if you were to expand that out to show the last year, you'd see I've basically maintained with a hell of a lot of up-down-up-down. A year ago, I was 150, so over the past year, I've made no progress whatsoever. What frustrates me is that I stepped on the scale yesterday and was 148 even - so I "gained" .8 pounds overnight. Now, I know I didn't eat enough to gain almost a pound in 24 hours so it's water or maybe my coffee hadn't fully kicked in yet. Whatever. It's still frustrating. I know I shouldn't care and 148.8 is a weight that many people would probably celebrate, but I do care and it frustrates me. Have I mentioned I'm frustrated?
Maybe I'm just not working hard enough. I've definitely been more "ish" than paleo lately. Damn you, Udi's, for making such good gluten-free bread and Bell's brewing for making such good beer. Maybe adding lifting nearly every day to my cardio isn't doing what it's supposed to be doing. Again, maybe I'm just not working hard enough.
It's ironic that 2 of my friends posted yesterday about ditching the scale. I wish I felt like I could step away from the scale like Mindy and Katy have. I know I'm much more than that number, but right now I'm not seeing progress in any other way either, so it's all I've got.
