Truthful Tuesday

I am feeling discouraged. I know I had a good weight loss last week, but I can't seem to break into the 250s. I weighed in Sunday at 261 as you saw, but then I woke up on Monday at 266 - what the fuck! Every other time I have been this dedicated to a healthy lifestyle, I have lost weight a lot faster. Its so hard to put so much work in and teeter-totter all over the 260s. I know I have destroyed my metabolism since I have been dieting off and on since 7th grade. I am going to try and eat more and jump start my metabolism again.

Here are some tips on jump starting your metabolism that I am going to try:
(according to http://thyroid.about.com/cs/dietweightloss/a/12ways.htm)

  • Eat breakfast
  • Eat the majority of your food earlier in the day
  • Don't starve
  • Eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day
  • Get enough aerobic activity
  • Build muscle with weight training and resistance exercise
  • Water!
  • Vitamin B
  • Supplements for fatigue


  1. You may consider weighing in just once a week, as the numbers will fluctuate from day to day. I try to do that myself, but can't help it. I have to see where I'm at most mornings.

    Regarding a slow metabolism, I saw an interesting article the other day...


  2. I just had to click your name! My site is bye bye bulk! Lol! I also have been having an upset with the scale this week and got discouraged ..but with encouraging words and trying to convince myself not to step on the scale until weigh in day will hopefully help!
    I'm here if you need anything! Best of luck!


  3. Kris - Ive tried cutting down my weigh ins and I just cant....I need to know where I am at all times ... its def an addiction!
