Day 264




So my luck isn't always the greatest. As my mother says in our house "If it wasn't for bad luck we would have no luck at all". Sometimes I feel that is very true. I have given everything I have this week. I have sweat like I never have. Eaten less calories then I have in a long time.Exercised longer then I am used to and burned about 3 weeks calories in less then one week.

My weigh in today had me down .5 a pound. Now to top that off guess what showed up last night? Yup TOM did. See where my luck is. I am hoping that after that passes the scale will move. I have also had no movement in the bathroom area. Pretty much I think my system is in shock. If there is one thing I have learned it is that I am still going. Even with the scale not moving I am still working out. This morning wasn't so great as I had really bad cramps. I could of done so much better then I did but it hurt to move.

Tonight I had a burst of energy. No clue where it came from. The workout seemed easier tonight then this morning. All of a sudden I am walking up the hill thinking when am I going to get it & it hit. I am going to beat this hill & I did.

Tonight I realized that even though I didn't lose weight I learned I have more in me then I ever thought. I can eat 1500 calories a day & not feel light headed or hungry. Who knows that weight may come off once TOM is over. I also learned that even though the scale doesn't move it is possible to keep going. It will move. I didn't gain over night & I won't lose over night.

Thank You. Marcelle took it!

Marcelle said...

I cant wait to see your weight tomorrow..some how I feel tomorrow is going to be the break through on the scale....
Be very careful this weekend, don't waste all the sweat blood and tears you've put into the last 6 days...keep going, you see you have it in you to push that little harder.

Tomorrow is our last workout tomorrow early morning...then its up to me to get out on my own again, I sure loved having someone to workout in the mornings with...

Tomorrow morning you and I have a date on that scale.

I agree with Katie J, that is a great picture of you. It really pops!

I know you know this, but I will say it anyhow. Just keep doing the right things. The weight will follow.

Keep fighting Sarah! You may see the results of your amazing efforts this week. You are one hot woman!!!!

Well you are looking great and some time all the hard work pays off 2 or 3 weeks after the fact.

Do you measure yourself too?

Fran said...

Love the pic, you look great.

I'm sure the weight will be off after TOM has gone. What might make a difference too is that you weighted yourself on Marcelle's scale (or did you brought your own). There sometimes can be a difference of 2 kg / 4 lbs so it's possible that too makes a difference.

When I bought a new scale I was over 1 kg / 2 lbs heavier than on my old scale.

Have a safe drive home and you can look back on a great week.

You will be down for sure- I weight in last night up 5lbs...guess what this morning - all gone- weird!!
Water retention at its finest...
You will see it will have paid off- Don't get discouraged!!

Patsy said...

Awww... It's disheartening to put all that effort in for a 0.5lb loss, BUT I've had a 5lb GAIN just as my TOM started, so I'm betting the scales will be a great deal kinder next weigh-in! :o)
