My weight fluctuates so much every day! Seriously, I can change 5 pounds, up or down, every day. It really drives me nuts during my diet! I know I’m not supposed weigh myself every day, but I do it anyway before getting in the shower. A lot of things play into this: salt/water intake, cheat meals, and ya know… going #2.
2 Quick Points:
Start you diet after your temptation days! I started my diet on a Friday(just because Jan 1st fell on a Monday). Never again! After I weigh in on a Friday morning and see that I have lost weight, I subconsciously think that I can cheat over the weekend, since I have seven more days to make up for it. For example, I weighed in last Friday at 201. On Tuesday, I was 206! Now, the whole week, comprar viagra generico, I am fighting just to get back to 201 and then praying that I am slightly lower by Friday morning. I hate this and am sick and tired of it. No more! I am now treating every day like I day I have to weigh in.
Treat every day as if you are getting on the scale that next morning! No cheat meals, no big portions, no more “it will be OK by Friday.” I realize weight will fluctuate a little every day, but I’m not allowing it to do so more than a pound or two. Cardio every day! I used to take the weekend off of cardio and pack it into the end of the week. Real weight loss doesn’t work like that! Every day! Every day! Every day!
Everything finally came together in week 3 of my diet. I was eating right and exercising. I was looking forward to my Friday weigh-in.
On Friday, I got on the scale…. 208. NO CHANGE!!! How could this be? I had my best week yet perfecting my diet and did the most exercise. Was I eating too many calories? Was I eating too little with the amount of workouts I was doing? Was my last weigh in with very little water in my body and this week with a lot? What’s the deal?
Overall, I am not too frustrated by it… but really hoping for a better weigh-in next week.
No big cheat meals! I was out with some friends on Friday night. I only had one drink- I was being good. Everyone decided to go to my favorite Mexican restaurant. I decided it was OK to have the half order of my usual nachos. So, I ate the whole thing. I felt like absolute crap for the next 3 days. I couldn’t even sleep well that night. It wasn’t because of the guilt of eating something I wasn’t supposed to, but all that unhealthy food, just made me feel like crap. Even Saturday and Sunday, I still felt terrible. So, maybe you can have a cheat ITEM, but not a huge meal.
Start your diet on a Monday- not on a Friday. I started on a Friday, because that was what January 1st fell on- not by choice. I find that if I have a good week and weigh-in on a Friday, then that gives my the mentality that I can cheat over the weekend, since I have many days until I weigh in again. I need to work as if my weigh-in is every day, taking every day as if it was the same. No more cheating on Friday after the weigh-in!!!
