Look at my right leg LOL it looks so small!
I am up 3 on the dot 3 FULL POUNDS. How the hell did that happen? I was almost in tears at the meeting but held them back. My leader came over and asked what was wrong? I said look I have been great all week food wise, I joined a real gym not the Rec Center and got a trainer. I have been with her and working out on my own daily and I am up 3 lbs. She said my muscles are tearing they are retaining the fluids and it is a good thing. I need to work my way through it and I will see the results I want. I went and talked to my trainer at our 2nd session and she said put the scale away for 6 weeks. I told her I have to weigh in weekly with WW and she said ok don't pay attention to the number and I thought yea like that is going to happen. I am still in shock about it and honestly if we are being 100% honest with each other here last night I went to a pizza place with my husband and I ate 2 large slices of pizza, and I have a calzone all to myself. Yep ate it and it felt good I wasn't even upset. I am in so much pain still 2 days later from my trainers 2nd workout (I will give you the exercises she had me do down below you can do them at home) and wondering if it is really worth it. I mean I am losing weight on my own with the bike, elliptical, and treadmill. Why do I need to have a trainer beating me up even if she is really nice LOL. I can barely walk seriously I need help getting up walking I have to walk with my legs straight no knees bending and OMG the pain is just awful.
I went out and got a scale on top of things and I am obsessive about weighing myself. I also purchased the WW food scale and LOVE THAT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT and if you don't have one get one!
I was discouraged when I started writing this about a hour ago and got interrupted with a phone call but ya know what....I can be upset about these 3 lbs or I can let it go and move on. I have done so good these past few months and this monor setback is not going to take away from my joy. I have to say I am not sure when I will get back in the gym but I will go back. I am going to eat right starting this moment again and get back into the saddle.
Hugs from Michelle up 3 more pounds but they will be gone right away!
