Frustrated. That's what I am right now.

I weighed 211.8 on January 19, exactly 1 week ago. I recommitted to busting ass and doing EVERYTHING that I need to do to get under 200 by March 1. I have logged every morsel that has passed my lips on Daily Plate and have stayed within my calorie budget EVERY day. I've been working out. I've been drinking water like crazy. I have eaten 75-100 grams of protein every day.

This morning I weighed at 212.2. Are you [bleep]-ing kidding me? That doesn't even make sense.

So, here's what I'm going to do. I'm going away for the weekend with my parents. We're going to Orlando to spend time with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. I won't have access to a scale or my usual foods. I am going to relax a bit, ride a LOT of roller coasters, eat what I want (within reason), and then get right back on plan on Monday morning. Time to shake things up a little.

Also, I have a new blogger alert. Undercover Banded just started following me and I noticed she only had a couple of followers. She's getting banded in 2 weeks - so exciting!

Hang in there...sounds like a plateau to me...or you could be trading out fat for muscle with all that working out. Have fun in O-town!

My bet is that it is a hormonal issue. I typically lose weight three weeks a month and either gain or maintain the fourth. It is frustrating, but you can't let it de-rail you. I think your plan sounds good. Enjoy your weekend!

What is your calorie budget? If it is not too high (above 1,200 calories say) then chances are it is hormonal, water weight or a plateau. Hang in there! Keep doing the right things and things should start moving in the right direction.

OH MY GOSH. It just hit me. You know how in the 70's...or 60's...or something like that, women burnt their bras to free themselves from oppression? WE SHOULD BURN OUR SCALES! Or shoot them!


Who am I kidding.

I would never do that.

But damn...wouldnt that be fun?
