Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

My RCC update

I’m trying to remain positive. I truly expected to maintain my weight while I was on vacation. I even hoped I could drop a couple of ounces.

I chose healthy fruits for lunch. Dinner was typically grilled chicken breast. I only had one glass of wine each two nights. I did splurge on margaritas – twice. But only one each time. The night we had the tailgate food, I opted for one small hamburger…no French fries and only half of the bun. I had a burger another night, but only ate half. I did have the sweet potato fries…again only half my order.

I got home and got on the scale and saw something I didn’t expect to see…I GAINED 1.8 pounds!

How did that even happen? It is very frustrating. Good thing I was trying to behave. The darn weight goes on so easy…and comes off so slow and hard.

I’m going to wallow in self pity tonight, but start again tomorrow. But tonight I’m just disgusted and depressed.

  1. Grrrrr…I know how frustrating that is!! When I had to lose 100 pounds for health reasons it was so discouraging when I gained weight…especially when I had been good. A friend reminded me that water weight can add quite a few pounds. In fact 2-3 pound variances in our weight are often simply water weight. I know that I can gain 5-8 pounds from the morning to the night…it’s crazy I know, but I drink tons of water and fluids. Did you weigh yourself in the evening or at different time than normal? I’m here rooting for you Pamela..stay strong! I think it you did a great job with your eating choices while you were on vacation!

    • I weigh same time of day…always with no clothes on, of course (can’t add extra weight ya’ know!). Knowing and accepting are two different things. It is just so hard. And now that I’m older it is even harder. When I was 45 I lost about 65 pounds. Keeping it off wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. But now that I’m 55, it is damn near impossible to take off.

      But Rome wasn’t built in a day (except for gaining weight). I just need to stick with it.

      • I’m finding it harder to maintain too. It was so easy in my 20’s and 30’s…ugh! I know you will stick with it and I will be here cheering you on!! πŸ™‚

  2. I try not to focus on the scale so much now. It just makes me paranoid. I know that even if there are some days I cheat, if I keep my focus overall I will lose weight. So far it is working. Stay strong Pamela! We’re here for you!

  3. God bless you. Hopefully soon you’ll get promising results. I know it is frustrating the ratio between gaining and losing. If only it was the other way around πŸ™‚

  4. It happens. A number of things can cause it, including dehydration or the time of day you weighed yourself. Don’t beat yourself up…you’re focused on it and you’ll get there! πŸ™‚
