Hey lovelies, I am writing to you today totally frustrated and discouraged.
The whole "I only gained 2 pounds on vacation" thing must have been and evil plot against me by my scale, because when I got on it this morning #3 decided to join #1 and #2.
What is so frustrating about this is that when I got back I got right back to my routine of interval training and have even started the process of introducing weights back in my routine (and spare me the whole muscle weighs more than fat, maybe it's muscle..my mom tried that). I have been back to eating right, even substituting a meal yesterday for a protein shake. So naturally I should have dropped at least 10 pounds, right? Kidding.
Honestly, I HATE the scale and never get on it I usually go by how my clothes fit, but I thought hey maybe I have already shed that vacation weight. Wishful thinking...I know. Evidently I am an optimist today. Anyways, back to the scale thing. I know that getting on the scale doesn't change what you actually weigh and in my case has allowed pounds to creep on before. The problem for me is that once I do get on the scale and it doesn't reflect the progress I think I am making I want to say screw it all and go get a caramel sundae with extra caramel (mmmm... that sounds good right now).
To make the situation so much better than it already was I went over to my mom's today and was
in tears venting telling her about how disappointed and discouraged I was. I explained that my clothes weren't fitting right, not even my t-shirts and I was trying really really hard. Well, she disappears for awhile and comes back with a pile of t-shirts that don't fit her (they are too small at least, too big may have put me over the edge) and says here, you can wear these until you fit back in your stuff. In person, "Thanks mom, I appreciate it." In my head, "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!" Am I that person that is getting 'fat' clothes from their...mother?!
So, the next time you feel bad about yourself remember this girl in blogland getting 'fat' clothes from her mother and breathe a sigh of relief that that isn't you.
