Eff you, scale

I weighed in this morning. Freaking 1.1 lb up. Not that I'm gaining over all...but it's just a continuation of the whole "up, down, up, down" pattern that is getting me nowhere. It is SO frustrating. I realize I need to concentrate on other things, like the way clothes fit and especially how fit I feel. The most important part of this all is health, and it certainly can't hurt for me to be working on improving my diet and getting way more exercise than I ever have before in my life. I know this, I just can't seem to shake the disappointment when the scale doesn't budge. My husband went for a 4.5 mile run and lost like 4 lbs. I went on a 3.5 mile run and gained a pound.
See how I could get a bit discouraged!?

Regardless, that run the other day felt amazing to accomplish and I am thinking I might go again after work today if it is nice out. Hopefully the good habits will eventually catch up with me both health wise and weight wise.

  1. think about it for a minute; if you gain muscle, you are going to weigh more because muscle weighs more than fat. even if you lose some fat, gaining muscle counteracts that because it plain weighs more.

    i hope that made sense?
    you are fine. dont worry about it.
