When life gives you lemons, it had better realize that I don't drink lemonade anymore!!!!

I would love to report that today is a fabulous and happy day, but it's not. Not yet anyway.

Today, I stepped on the Wii Fit for my usual Tuesday morning weigh in. And much to my surprise I was the SAME! No joke. So, is that three weeks now that the scale hasn't moved AT ALL? Not even the .2 lbs that I didn't count last week. Yes, it's true, I'm getting frustrated. I will say that I was offered some great suggestions last week (thanks She & Kim H.) and I have already started them. I am drinking WATER. That's right! Not my "weakened" tea that I typically sip on all day, I've already downed a whole bottle of water this morning. Yeah me! I am also going to be getting real close with some protein supplements and really watching my intake. I just want the scale to move a little. Is that too much to ask? I think not.

Yesterday, I went and signed up for the gym. Again, Yeah me! In fact, in the process, I was offered 3 months free if I paid for personal training sessions (basically worked out to be the same price but I get training out of it). Who doesn't need personal training sessions with a fitness professional? Well, I am not one of those people. I'm actually really excited about it. My personal training starts TONIGHT!!!! So, I'm on my way to getting that scale moving - or at least firming up what I already have in hopes of burning off the jiggle. I'll report back tomorrow and let you know how it went.

My job has become really stressful in the last two months and I fear that this may be contributing to eating issues and the results on the scale. I'm not eating a LOT, but I have reverted to snacking because that's what I've done to alleviate stress in the past. I'm trying to make a conscious effort to NOT eat my emotions and it's starting to be a little bit easier. Let's hope sweating out the aggression at the gym really helps in this area also. I don't want to lose/give up my job, but I can't be unhappy and miserable with my work atmosphere either. Things will have to change.

There's my morning in a nutshell. Let's hope and pray that wonderful things happen today to make this day a success.

I hope you don't find me to be a pain in the butt. I just know exactly how you're feeling - only mine lasted for FOUR MONTHS! Of course I had a lot going on in that time, but it's only started moving again in the last week.

The workouts will for sure get the scale moving - AND it has made me feel so much better - I can't even tell you.

Hang in there - it'll get better!

Don't be silly! I don't find you to be a pain the butt AT ALL! I love to hear from others that are having the same struggles. It helps me to feel like I'm not alone. I'm so sorry yours had lasted 4 months! I feel for you. But how great that your scale is moving again!

I think that as long as I feel better and feel like things are getting better - the number doesn't matter. But right now, I'm not having much of either.

I'll just try to be patient! And get my butt in the gym!!!

Thank you Kim! I appreciate your support!

Thanks Jil! The day has gotten slightly better. Unfortunately, that's only because I'm closer to getting out of here - And I get to look forward to working my butt off.

I will say, the encouragement and the well wishes do make things better!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
