Say whaaaaaat?


My name is Grumpy McReallypissedoff.

Why, you ask?

Remember I said yesterday that I'd had a pretty good week of tracking this week, and had finished with pretty much no deficit, but was still a little nervous about the scales?

So guess what the scales did this morning?

3 fucking pounds. UP.


Still, I could have spent this morning hip-deep in recriminations, self-doubt, questioning and re-questioning where I'd gone wrong, and general, all-purpose whining.

I don't know why it's happened - could be I got something wrong with my pointing, could be the adjustment from later morning weigh ins back to much earlier ones, could be the shift from high intensity exercise to more walking as I've started work, could simply be TOTM or a backlash from that big loss a couple of weeks ago.

Who knows. What I do know is I can't let this set me back so the big girl panties are going to have to make an appearance. Suck it up. Move on.

I'm not sure whether to weigh in daily for the moment so I can monitor what's going on or keep going forward with weekly. Maybe see how it goes and what it looks like tomorrow.

It's soooo frustrating when we don't get the reward we deserve from the scales. But sometimes our bodies just don't want to play ball. Keep doing what you're doing and you WILL see the results eventually.

It's a travesty. Full sympathy and hopefully it's a blip that will be reversed on the next WI.

It's so annoying! When that happens all you can do is ask - "where the heck di i go wrong?".

I think weighting yourself on a daily basis is a good idea. I do that and it prevents me from doing the wrong thing two times in a row.

Then again, have you considered the possibility that it could be muscle gain?

Ooh, that’s harsh – I feel for you about your bad news. Nothing’s worse than a huge, underserved gain.

the plus point is that you really made me laugh with the Grumpy McReallypissedoff line :)
