I'm Not Crazy After All

Well, yesterday was a very stressful day, as is pretty much the case many days with a mother and brother both going through cancer treatment and other daily life stressors - like scales that jump up 4 pounds on weigh-in day.

Which brings me to my reason for this quick Saturday post.

I was 201.5 this morning. See? I'm not crazy. I know you didn't think so, but I felt the need to show everyone that it really was a fluke of the scale.

I'll leave my weigh-in the same, but it makes me feel better to let everyone know that the gain I had to post wasn't really as bad as it looked yesterday.

Thank you for all your kind comments and words of support and direction. I do think the stress is having an effect on my body, so this is going to be an interesting couple of months. If I can lose weight with everything going on in my family then I will be doing wonderful.

And that's my goal - to lose weight even in times of stress. We'll see how I do.

Have a nice weekend everyone!


  1. No, you aren't crazy and neither was I. I was back down 2 1/2 pounds this morning. Not quite to the 159.5, but very close. Think I'll go out and howl at the moon tonight, maybe that'll work. LOL!

  2. Girl! I never thought you were crazy! I knew it was a flawed scale. It was the scale!!!! Always!

    Well, I'm glad you got that settled and are feeling better! I knew you had been good! Keep up the good work. Talk to you in a week!

  3. That's why the scale shouldn't make the final judgment for success. It's only whatever you weighed at that specific moment in time.

  4. When my mom was sick for six months in 2004 it was all I could do just to keep up with some type of exercise when I could. I was working full-time and helping my dad take care of her. All that to say do what you can when you can and don't beat up on yourself your going through a lot right now:)
    Be kind to yourself! Hugs

  5. Scale fluctuations are enough to drive a person crazy and should always be taken with a grain of salt. You're doing great Leah - keep it up!

  6. I just caught up on you for the last couple of days...I am glad things are back to normal on the scale. You are obiviously handling this stress well, Congratulations!

  7. You will do great! And the scale definitely isn't always right. Hope your hubby had a great day.
