Have I mentioned how much I DISLIKE the darned bathroom scale!
It is a liar !
It is telling me ” you are fat”
I know I am not but damn you scale and your ever fluctuating numbers toying with my emotions.
You see , I am on Day 16 of the LiveFit Program and the scale is absolutely drunk! I started the program at 166. I have also weighed in at 164,168 and today 167.4!
My eating has been pretty good , not perfect but definitely not eating chocolate bars and garbage !
As a WLS ( weight loss surgery) patient the scale meant everything to me for years. You focus Only on the number on that scale. It determines if you are a success or a failure. As a former 284lb person , losing significant numbers means everything.
Now that I am in Maintenence mode I no longer drop weight as easily And it is a struggle.
I do believe it is a mental struggle more than anything. I think the scale should be moving , dropping numbers because I am doing everything I am supposed to , right?
I am drinking water , moving my body and lifting weights.
Oh wait a minute – BINGO !
I am lifting weights , building muscle and we all know – muscle weighs more than fat !
I am 100% doing less cardio ( aka running) lately due to injury and that is keeping me from sweating , a lot . But again , when you lift weights , your body continues to burn fat while it repairs those muscles.
So , I will not let the scale get the better of me and I will just keep on lifting and building those baby biceps because one day I am going to be so fit I will never ever care what that stupid number on the scale is!
