Face the Scale Friday: Week Six

Daily Points: 38
Weekly Points used this week: 49/49
Activity Points earned this week: 19
Points remaining at end of week: -19

Weight lost this week: +2.2
Total weight lost: –2
Starting weight: 259.8
Current weight: 257.8

I feel as if I’ve lost my mojo lately. I did really well the first three weeks, but then I stayed the same two weeks ago and last week I gained 2.2 and now this. I also yet again went over on my points allowance but at least it wasn’t nearly as bad as it was last week. I also earned a couple more Activity Points this week over last, so there’s that, too. (And, to be fair, some of this week is possibly left over from last week since I fully anticipated gaining more than the 2.2 I did last week.)

Partly it’s weather related — my seasonal affective disorder kicks in when autumn does (which is just horrible timing since this is my favorite season) so lately I’ve felt just…….blah. Like, every morning is a struggle to get myself out of bed. All I want to do is just stay under my cozy covers and sleep the day away. When I get home from work I immediately put my pajamas on and crawl into bed. I don’t even want to wake up for work, let alone exercise.

Which is why I wore my Suck It Up Bondi Band to the YMCA on Saturday. Because sometimes you really do just need to suck it the fuck up.

I’ve also been fighting off a cold which has me home sick today which is not super fabulous seeing as how tomorrow is the Akron Marathon Team Relay but part of my decision to stay home stems from wanting to be well rested for tomorrow’s 5 am wake-up call.

Love from the ashes,
Lady Lazarus

  1. I totally understand! I have been feeling the exact same way. I keep losing and gaining the same 5 pounds for a few months. I need something to kick it back into losing mode. It's sad because we know what we should be doing but we can't make it stick.
