Storm Clouds

It's not always rainbows and sunshine.  Sometimes rain falls.  Sometimes I want to curl up in a ball - cry - give up. 

I can feel that little black rain cloud stalking me.  It wants me to give up, lay it down.  Unfortunately, I helped it today by doing something I say to never, never, never do . . . I got on the scale.

If you have been paying attention, you know weigh in is Wednesday mornings - not Tuesday nights.  Buck naked (don't try to picture it), the scale said I gained 5 pounds.  Of course, I went into a bit of panic, obsessive mode.  What did I do wrong?  Where did I mess up?  I've exercised.  I've recorded my everything.  I've stayed in my calories all but 2 days (over 145 Sunday and over 258 on Monday), but the workouts should have taken care of those.  I went to the flippin' movies and DIDN'T get Diet Coke!  Do you all realize how hard that was for me? 

I'm working really hard to keep my chin up.  I went to the gym.  I came home and had some sugar snap peas.  I'm drinking my water.  I'm going to get up at 5:30 - alone - and go to the gym.  I'm going to get on the scale.

And aren't you glad you went and weighed in! You actually lost weight!!! Your doing great Amy.

I am feeling better today after working gout last night at the gym with you and this morning with Lee. It's nice to have Lee to work out with here at home and you at the gym!

Keep up the good work and I'll see you at the gym Thursday!

From JD: Keep the faith Amy! You can and will do it. Just like the "Biggest Loser", people have good weeks and bad weeks. Give yourself a break. You are doing more than many others. You are trying. You have to give your body time to re-adjust. It gets accustomed to pattens and responds accordingly. It's just going to take some more time, so be patient. You will get there! I believe in you!
