The Scale is Not My Friend

My scale is going in the WRONG direction! This is not a good thing. Today I am adding 5 marbles to the WRONG marble jar. Ugh.

My fitness ticker doesn’t change because I haven’t lost any weight! You’ll know when I start making progress because my ticker will update automatically as I weigh in each Friday.

Why do I weigh in on Fridays? Because I try to cut myself some slack due to the fact that I don’t always make the best food choices over the weekend.

Don put our treadmill in the play room until our basement repairs are complete; so, I can now add C25K back to my workout routine. I am VERY happy about that because it is too cold to walk/jog outside and going to the community center these days is not an option.

In spite of my scale taking a turn for the worst I am feeling good about myself. I have been lifting weights and have incorporated strength training into my routine. My clothes are starting to feel bigger and I’m beginning to feel stronger.

If all else fails and I’m unable to get the pounds off at least my heart is getting a good workout, right?


  1. I was a mess when I stepped on the scale after vacation. I gained. A lot! But in just a few days it has pealed off. I think I was retaining serious amounts of water! Anyways, I'm back to pre-vacay weight, but I am still not happy. It isn't going down the way I would like. It's very frustrating..

  2. I have had a bit of a setback this week. I’m debating whether or not to write about it. I have determined that from now on when I go on vacation I refuse to step on the scale when I get home. LOL
