This week just seems like an epic fail. Every day I have gotten on the scale and every day I have gained weight. I am up two pounds from Sunday. I am not discouraged but I am frustrated. I’ve been eating a lot of sodium lately in the Lean Cuisine and I am wondering if the weight gain is due to water retention. I’ve also been working out three times a week so maybe some of it is building muscle mass. Whatever it is, it needs to stop. I need to see some progress to stay motivated.
I don’t drink water. It’s just something I am not in the habit of doing. Today I started out by drinking 20 ounces of water. I will keep increasing that to 64 ounces but for this week, I think 20 ounces a day is good.
I suppose I can be proud of the changed behaviors like logging my food, drinking water and exercising three times a week. I can even be proud of trying to make better nutrition choices but all that just doesn’t seem enough without the weight loss.
Every night I feel like a child on Christmas Eve eagerly going to bed so that in the morning I can get on the scale and receive my present that I have worked so hard for.
