Weight: 165.4 Loss: .2 lbs
Can I vent? I just erased 3 sentences that I started typing, cause I don't even know what I am feeling, but it's not warm fuzzies. Last weekend I worked a high school conference where they fed us 3 square meals a day.....like big meals. I ate all 3 meals (smaller than normal of course) but I had pancakes and syrup at breakfast, and 2 pieces of quiche and a piece of fried chicken at lunch, beef stew for dinner with curly fries, some soda, starburst, chips, a few pieces of candy all in a days work. I ate like this for 2 1/2 days and didn't work out once during those 2 days and when I got on the scale at 4pm in the afternoon when I returned (not first thing in the morning on an empty stomach) I had gained NO WEIGHT! Awesome! But..... not awesome cause when I am eating 1000-1400 calories a day AND working out this week, I loose .2lbs (point-2-pounds.... not 2 pounds, cause that would be cooler!)!
What is going on here?! I know there are no real answers, but it's just frustrating, putting forth real effort, recording your food, taking time to exercise and to see almost the same results as not giving a crap.
Yesterday I had a muscle milk, 3/4 tuna sandwich, 1 small dove choc, 1 serving TGIF skillet meal, glass of milk and worked out. This has been about the same all week. I went to dinner with my girlfriends on Tuesday night. I got a kids grilled chicken with broccoil and side of angel hair with alfredo and only ate half of that (pretty sure they think I have an eating disorder now since I took 40 min just to eat 1/2 kids meal!), along with my muscle milk in the morning and 1/2 lean cuisine for lunch and 1 cookie.
Anyhoo.. I'm just annoyed. My band is pretty tight. I eat SOO slow, and have super small meals (aka 1/2 lean cuisine). I never feel hungry either. Any thought anyone? I'm not throwing anything up cause I am being super cautious, but feel like it's bound to happen.
So...my Skinny Santa Ladies...today is our last weigh in before our FINAL WEIGH IN next week! Can't wait to see who I am sending my gift card too. (Did I just admit defeat?!) sad.
I can say this.... if it wasn't for my weekly weigh ins and challenges and goals and my lab band, I would be eating myself through entire packages of cookies "cause" it's Christmas". There haven't been many years where I have been able to say that I maintained and even lost a few pounds during the Holiday season, so in that aspect..... Good for Me!
Happy Last Shopping Weekend Before Christmas!!!!
