Last night's weigh-in was not good. Despite putting in a lot of effort this week, I gained a pound. It is really depressing thing to have happen. To exercise and eat healthy and feel really good about how you've done during the week and then to see that you have actually gained a pound instead of losing the two pounds you were hoping to lose is a frustrating event.
I did not do my elliptical crosstraining exercise because the machine is still broken, but I made the effort to do 30 minutes to an hour of Wii Fit aerobic exercise each day and I went out in the freezing cold with my husband each night to take the dog on long walks. I ate even better (low calories and fat) than usual.
Robert did really well this week too, but he still saw a gain of one and a half pounds on the scale.
This is my biggest one week gain since I started this healthy lifestyle, and this is the first time Robert has seen a gain for two weeks in a row, as well as the first time he's seen a gain when he's actually tried for a loss.
I keep thinking, What more can we do?
I can do one of two things now. I can just say, "Screw it," and let myself feel discouraged enough to quit trying, or I can suck it up and keep trying and hope to see a loss on the scale next week. Guess which one I am going to do.
