I try to be positive all of the time, but I am only human. Everyone has their moments and I am having mine, today. I kind of want to scream right now. I gained 4.4 pounds since last weekend. Granted, I went overboard with my eating this week; however, I worked really hard this weekend to try and make up for it. I practiced softball twice; both times until sweat was dripping in to my eyes and I couldn't practice anymore. My arms, back and legs are in serious pain. I haven't worked that hard in months. I was a little really bitter this morning when I stepped on the scale. I said to myself, "What is my reward for working SO hard? Weight gain. Just wonderful!"

I really need to go back to my post from Saturday morning to remind myself that sometimes I'll be up, and sometimes I'll be down. I'm going to use my frustration to motivate myself to strive harder this week.

  1. I completely understand your emotion here. I had a serious "WHAAT?!!!" moment last Sunday when I weighed myself and found I gained 2 pounds. I worked so hard and watched my calorie intake and I still gained 2 pounds. It was so discouraging. But keep it up. :)
