Weight: 169.8lbs

Its true. The scale bolted upwards this week, it didnt even pretend to creep. At last look it was hovering aroun 169 and that freaks me the crap out as I’ve maintained a low 160’s weight for so long now. Nothing has changed, except that Ive been rather stressed lately. I know there’s been some emotional eating going on, but I’ve been really good about going to the gym and doing cardio so that should more than make up for it. I can only hope that this is a side effect of my period (which finally started today). So I’ll weigh myself again on Friday and see if it’s gone down any.

Fuck. Doesnt do a lot for my selfconfidence when I feel fat and the scale says the same thing.

Reality check time

I’ve been saying for about a week now that I don’t feel comfortable in my skin. What I really should have been saying is that I don’t feel comfortable in my jeans. I’ve gained about 5lbs in the last month of so, and given that I’ve been tossing portion control to the wind, it’s unsurprising.

I’d also been avoiding the bathroom scale, thinking I’d be doing myself a favour not to step on top of it. Bad idea as it turns out, as it also allowed me to not be accountable for what I’ve been eating.

So today’s weight: 168.8lbs. I need to get back on track, and back down to 160. Im giving myself three weeks to lose 10lbs, and if I can stay away from the Golden Oreos and bags of Ruffles, and get back to going to the gym on a regular basis I should be able to do this no prob.
