Biting my nose to spite my face

My mom likes to say this phrase, "You're biting your nose to spite your face." Meaning you are pouting or acting in some way that is only hurting yourself more than what was originally the problem.

And after today's look at the scale (174... up 2 lbs from yesterday, which was 2 lbs up from the day before... WTF have I been eating to do this to myself??! I don't get it), I realize maybe that's what I am doing a little bit.

I didn't eat THAT bad yesterday, but I did have ice cream, and 2 glasses of wine... And maybe that was because I was already mad about yesterday's gain and I acted all "I don't even care" and look what it got me. Maybe?

Soooo before I sink myself too low into the self-pity, self-sabotage hole, I need to just be ultra strict and get that number back down.

Sometimes I just wish we could throw our scales away. I had the 2 lb. gain yesterday and now today it's down a little bit but still showing a 1 lb. gain. Grr!!! It is so frustrating and maybe that knowlege does get us down and we don't fight as hard.

You probalby know perfectly well that alcohol leads to water retention, so I won't even bother telling you that. ^^

Plus, what time of your hormonal cycle is it? No need to tell us, but some women gain up to 8lbs prior top their period, all due to water retention.

(I gain everytime I am sore. I know that the morning after a good strength workout, the scale will show at least one pound more. And I still weigh in. Welcome to madness.)

Oh gawd! Tell me about it. I sabotaged myself so bad I'm back at square one.

Why do we do this to ourselves?

You can do this! You have proved it before!

I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for me. About a year ago I my partner split up, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I found your email on a site about what you have done. I requested 1 to 2 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within 3days mark company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived. We immediately reconnected and move in with each other. Our wedding date is set for Summer 2012. Expect to see your invite in the mail!.thanks to
