Total Frustration

I started using myfitnesspal.com to track my calories.  In my last post, I mentioned my disdain for calorie counting but felt it necessary.  So last week I stayed at or well below my daily calories.  I worked out five times and was sure to journal all of my food. 

When I weighed in on Saturday morning, I was expecting great news.  Well... it wasn't so great.  I was up two pounds. For real. I just don't get it.  I am feeling completely frustrated.  I was strict with my eating and did my regular workout routine.  I sometimes just feel like throwing in the towel.  I won't but I do feel like giving up at times.  I was so strict and didn't bend any of the weight loss rules this past week.  So what gives? 

Just going to keep going hard this week and hope to see some results at my next weigh in. 


  1. I am sorry to hear that, that sucks :( What about your soduim intake? Drinking water? Stress? Sending out weight loss vibes for next week! But just remember how far you have come. I hope when day I can say I have lost has much weight as you :)

  2. I know that is so frustrating. Where are you in your menstrual cycle - as that often makes a difference. You may also try to examine the types of foods you are eating. Carb to protein ration, complex carbs to simple, etc.

    The main thing that helped me through those weeks was to remember that if I kept doing what I knew I should - eventually the scale would cooperate.

    Stay strong.
