After Friday's craptastic scale reading, I've been trying to figure out what the heck happened. Seriously, I didn't do anything differently, except exercise more, and I gained 4 pounds in 10 days.
I knocked off a pound over the weekend but I'm perplexed and annoyed. Why does my body work so hard to stay at a weight it really shouldn't be?
I know I shouldn't focus on the scale, but dang it, I am, and I need it to go down NOW. I'm not getting to a "happy weight," I'm not losing "vanity pounds" -- these are "get me below 200" pounds.
If I were 6-foot-2 it might be a different story but I'm 5-foot-5 so I should not weigh over 200.
Am I discouraged? A little. Defeated? Heck, no. This is going to happen and happen sooner rather than later. I just have to set fire to my set-point weight.
