I Almost Quit

I almost quit Weight Watchers yesterday morning.  When I say Weight Watchers I mean all diets.  I was completley ready to throw in the towel, embrace my curves,  empty my bank account and head over to Lane Bryant to buy myself a nice Bovine wardrobe and just be done with all of this dieting nonsense.

You see when I got on the scale yesterday a.m., I weighed 217.4.  That is more than I weighed when I started “Getting Serious” about dieting 6 months ago.  Since Friday, I had been focusing on my baby step goals, had walked the dogs, drank all my water and eaten sensibly.  I was so sad…morose even.   How could I possibly have gained that much weight when I was doing everything right?

I didn’t quit yesterday for reasons I myself do not understand.  I drank lots of water and lots of green tea.  I walked the dogs.  I took my vitamin. I paid attention to what I ate, paying special attention to keeping my portions small at dinner. I avoided all salt!

I peed constantly.  I mean constantly, as in every 15 minutes constantly.  When I drove my eldest calf to his LAX practice I had to stop 2X for pit stops.  (the practice was just 20 minutes from the stable).  I thought he was going to die of embarrassment but I figured the constant stopping was better then me peeing on myself.

This morning I got on the scale and guess what?  Back to 212.6 which is where I was at my last weigh-in.  Yahoo!  I must have eaten something really salty that caused me to retain water…..and all that peeing paid off!

I am feeling motivated once again. I made it to the gym this morning and did my weight work-out and then went walking for an hour and a half.  I am a happy, motivated, Bovine and that’s the way, uh huh, uh huh I like it 🙂

M O O,

    I’m so glad you didn’t quit! The scale is a miserable beast, but you knew that you didn’t do anything that was 5 pounds worth of gain, quite the opposite. Good job setting yourself back on the right path, your body will thank you!

  2. Well done for staying so positive.
    Sometimes I wonder why people claim we need to drink so much water in a day when all I do is pee it out

  3. Good job girl, you can do it. I haven’t stepped on the scale yet. I am too afraid it will discourage me. Keep on, I am still going strong in my workouts!

    I know the feeling, I’ve been there alot lately..but we can’t give up! You are doing an awesome job, just keep pushing forward 🙂 (I think I have the same problem of retaing too much salt bc down here in Louisiana, we put seasoning on EVERTHING)

    • Thanks Sharlie – I really need to get my spark back. I have lost my motivation….ahh well….tomorrow is another day. In GA, we like to season too – especially BBQ! and don’t get me started on what you can do with butter.

    You can do it!! Keeping your motivation up is key, otherwise the small cracks start to take hold and before you know it, you’re in the middle of a full blown binge session, followed by horrific guilt that makes you want to binge again just to pick yourself up..
    Nice work! Keep it up!
