I’m not sure why, but the past 2 days i have been really bumming about this whole leaning out, losing weight stuff. I lied, I do know why. It’s because I stepped on the scale yesterday….and I haven’t lost a pound. I understand that I am eating close to maintenance calories so that I can still build some good muscle, but my workouts have been so heavy and hard that I thought I should still lose some weight on the scale if I am losing fat. The thing is before I got on the scale i was on a high horse..really excited about how my stomach was looking and stuff…even my legs a little bit…then I got on that scale and i just got really upset. I just can’t or don’t want to believe that I am building enough muscle and losing fat to even out the scale. I am starting to worry that I won’t be able to lean out enough for the competition and I’m just really bummed about right now.

Anyone ever feel like this or experience something like this? Where in reality you think that even though they are small changes, you are changing for the better, but then something like the scale tells you your not.

Stupid scale i hate you!!! LOL.

Anyways I could really use some motivators right now if you have any 🙂 I’m going to the gym now…it can’t hurt right 😉

    I remember when I first began losing weight I got really discouraged because the scale was not telling me what I wanted to hear. I was kind of depressed really and my fitness instructore pulled me aside and asked me what was wrong. I told her, she then said…the scale means nothing. You need to concentrate more on inches. As we fat we are also putting on muscle, so the scale may not show that we lost weight, but we still in fact could have lost fat and gained muscle. From then on, I realized that the scale no longer had the power it once had. So, you may not have lost a lb according to the scale…do you feel better? Do you feel healthier, more energized, clothes fitting a bit better? Don’t stress, just know that your on the right path and you will soon see the results your looking for:) Just keep up the good work!

    Hey there, you probably don’t remember me but I left you a comment a few weeks ago and then my pc crapped out on me. I have since replaced it and the link to your blog was on the old PC so I *finally* found you by googling different words LOL Happy to be catching up on your world 🙂

    Look to your clothes when the scale lets you down. Sometimes just trying on a pair of jeans that used to be tight can be an eye opener and get you passed that whole pissed at the scale feeling (boy, do I know that one!!!). The way you’ve been eating and working out, you’ve got to be putting on muscle and I definitely know I don’t have to tell you which is heavier! Keep up the great work!!!

    Remember those days you were sick? Your body could just be holding onto some water, through your muscles if it was even close to thinking it was going to dehydrate. The scale is a tool ~ to keep you on track, it doesn’t have to be a mood buster!
