I know, I know... no one ever said life was gonna be fair.
I might have said it myself a time or twenty (thousand).
But I am still inclined to pout.
I am doing really well at sticking to my < 1000 calorie/day diet, and in the last week alone have done two 18.6 km walks, four 4km walks, and a 6 km long hike. PLUS gardening, helping with the dock, and assorted other physical activity the like of which I have not done for YEARS.
And did I mention that I'm sticking to the <1000 calorie/day diet?
So how is it possible that I have not only not lost any more weight, I have, according to the traitor scale in my washroom, GAINED weight? Not a lot - but it is not going in the right direction and I am IRKED. Also PEEVED. And more than a little inclined to POUT.
IT IS NOT FAIR!
On the plus side, I haven't done the FDGB thing since April 9 - haven't had angina in about 2 weeks, I am rarely short of breath, and my house is cleaner and my garden growing better than usual, because I feel SO much better and ABLE to get off my arse and DO stuff.
But still - I have such a long way to go to get to the goal weight the doctor set for me... it is really, REALLY frustrating to have that blasted scale go in the wrong direction.
