Its me-I'm a gainer~

Yesterday (Wed) my friend called me after work to ask if I would go to WW with her, instead of normally on Thursday. The weather is supposed to be super bad on Thursday. I said sure.

It wasn't til I got off the phone that I realised that I had already drank about 2 litres of water. I figured what the hell. I was up .4 of a pd. I KNOW that it was totally affected by the water, I KNOW that I usually have a whole extra day. I KNOW that with working out as much as I have this week my body may be in shock.

But honestly I KNOW that I am still frustrated.

It took a lot of energy this week to force myself to eat my baby carrots. It took a lot of energy to force myself to drink all my water-which I did for four days in a row. It took a lot of energy to force myself not go on coffee runs with my friends at work. It took a lot of energy to force myself to research the sodium levels in the food I was eating. It took a lot of energy to force myself to not cry when I gained AGAIN.

I feel like people are going to think I'm lying. Like I'm not doing all I should be, like I'm dropping the ball. I guess the only thing I can do is plug away and hope eventually it catches up, or die trying :()


  1. I am also on WW. The past few weeks I have been on a gaining/losing streak. I gain a pound and then lose 0.4. I can totally relate. It is soo frustrating. I am not eating all my flex/activity points and yet seem to hold on to the weight. The way I look at it is, it will come. You are taking ALL the right steps and even if you don't lose this week, you are doing your body good. If people on The Biggest Loser can gain in a week, regular dieters like us will gain sometimes too. Sorry about the novel, hang in there. It will come with time!!

  2. Jessica said it well Candace. I just posted yesterday that 4 - 16.9 oz. bottles of water weighs 5 lbs. (2 litres)

    Try not to let .4 lbs. get you down. Just keep doing what your doing and it will happen.

  3. I know your frustrated but don't fret!! It works and your doing awesome...keep it up and next week you'll be smiling...besides your insides are smiling no matter what the scale says!
