If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

Huh... Weird

So, I'm in NutriMirror, planning out my food for the day. I plug it all in... this is what I have so far:

Br: 1/3 cup oatmeal, 1/8 cup prunes (shut up, I like em), and a tablespoon of PB2, 1 cup milk with vitamins

Lu: whole flax bagel (I usually eat half), 1/4 cup egg white, with ketchup & a cup of carrots

Dn: chicken breast, a cup of sweet potato, and a cup of mashed turnip

I'm thinking at this point that I better be sure I'm not over my caloric intake before adding a snack in the afternoon, so I click to the food log page... I'm only at 891 calories! What??? I have a TON of food listed here!

Eating the foods to fuel the body really is the way to go! If I were to throw in any processed stuff, it would add up incredibly quickly. As it is, I can have a big heaping bowl of yoghurt with fruit and PB2 for a snack, and still be way under my caloric budget. In fact, that puts me at... 1084.

Sooo, not sure what's going on with the scale. It read 153 this morning, which is WAY up. And TOM isn't due until next week. But I have been weight lifting a little bit, and did Shred twice. Maybe it's muscle gain.

The only reason I'm even stressing about it a little bit is because of the BLBE. I want to show a good loss for the team. But I just need to keep in mind that it will all work out in the end, as the scale reflects my hard work. I forget sometimes that the results don't show right away.

Plus, my body is doing it's best to fight off a cold... ah, you know what? That's it. I always show a gain when my sinus' are clogged. It's amazing to me how much snot weighs. I haven't got a full boar cold, but it's trying! I'm drinking hot water with lemon all day for the vitamin C. Hell, even if I do get the cold, at least I don't have to worry about scurvy!!

Fear not, A-Team! Even if my WI is higher this week, I shall prevail!!

I bet it is the cold

You might need to eat more! Sometimes if you pull back in your cals too much, your body screeches on the brakes. Or who knows, maybe it's just some water gain. Keep doin what you're doin and it will all come together:)
