Welp, let's get this one over with, too.
I stepped on the scale, hopeful and anxious. When the lady at the counter read my results, my heart sank.
+ 0.4 lbs
Change since week one: + 1.8 lbs
Change since 2006: -28.2 lbs
It'd be one thing if I had been expecting it, but I certainly was not.
I worked so hard this week. I earned a minimum of 56 activity points. When I say minimum I mean that when I track my activity points, I skimp. If I did Zumba for an hour I'd key in that I did 45 minutes. I never skimp on my SHREDDING activity points, but those are hard earned so I give myself the credit.
The lady behind the counter saw the 2 ton weight of discouragement break my back and asked me if I did anything different. When I told her how much activity points I earned, she asked if I ate the points I earned. When I told her that I ate all of my extra weekly allowance points, but not my activity points, she said I might not be eating enough.
I've been through this before, but I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that when I stay within my points for the week and exercise, but don't eat the activity points I earn, that I typically fail at the scale.
It just doesn't make sense to me.
How is it that I am quite literally kicking myself in the ass thanks to Jillian, working my butt off, sweating bullets all while tracking that I am GAINING?
I just keep on back tracking and it's driving me insane.
I want to rip my hair out.
