What is wrong with my body?
I weighed myself last Saturday, and I lost... nothing.
I feel like my body is a walking bloated balloon.
In this case... actually a running bloated balloon.

I've been running. A lot.
Is this the case of building more muscle and retaining water in them again?
This happened for two weeks about two months ago.
I hope so.

I have 18 days until my "final" weigh in.
My old friend the scale isn't a good friend lately.

I've decided this week to really monitor what I put in my mouth.
I'm watching my
*salt intake
*water consumption
*cholesterol consumption

I'm running 3.5 miles 5 days a week, and a 7 mile long run on Fridays.
I know I'll lose these last few pounds.
It's just a matter of time.

8 oz. orange juice
1/2 cup Kashi, 1/4 cup fat free milk
1 multigrain muffin, 1 TB reduced fat peanut butter
7 almonds
2 corn tortillas, 2 slices ham, 2 TBS salsa, 1/4 cup fat free cheese
7 almonds
1 orange
1 breaded fish filet, grilled veggies

Have a happy and healthy day!

I'm sure you will get there soon enough with all of that hard work! You're also getting to the point where's you're getting so close to your goal that your body may be holding onto those last few pounds a bit harder.

Also, I can't wait until I'm that avid of a runner.

I feel your frustration with the scale! Hang in there! Maybe try to change something up? All I know is my birthday was last week and I exercised pretty hard 4 days last week and while I ate more calories than usual I am pretty confident it was less calories than most people eat to maintain. That with the exercise combined caused for some anger at the scale on thursday when I saw a gain of 3 lbs. and for what???????? Am I not allowed a tiny piece of cake on my birthday? come on!!!

Hang in there.

I've upped my running and gained a couple of pounds. BUT since I know I'm eating well and running tons then I'm not stressing it. It'll even out. ;)
