I'm confused.  I'm off work today so instead of going to my regular WW meeting in Vancouver, I went to the meeting here in Abbotsford.  I've had a great week of eating and a tonne of activity.  I earned 15 activity points on my hike alone yesterday, according to the Garmin I burned almost 1600 calories yesterday on our hike.  I was expecting a loss this week, with the amount of activity I put in, I was expecting to lose what I gained last week and maybe a little bit more.

Instead I had to fight back the tears as I read my log book.  I gained!  AGAIN!  Bigger.  I gained 3.2 pounds this week.  I don't know how.  I don't know why.  I'm at a total and complete loss.  I didn't have a single day where I went over my points.   In fact I had a few days where I didn't use all of my points.  But the fact of the matter is, in two weeks I have gained over 5pounds.  That to me is huge!

I'm frustrated and confused and I do wish that I was in town today so I could speak to my usual leader. I know that he would be able to sit down and help me work through where I'm going wrong.  There has to be a reason for it,  I just don't know what it is.

My initial reaction was anger.  Why am I putting so much work into this if I'm not going to see any results.  I've put so much effort into my activity and watching what I'm eating.  I've gone without things because I didn't have the points, only to gain weight anyway. 

I'm terribly frustrated today, but I'm not going to let that ruin the great week I've had.  Although the great week didn't show itself on the scale today, it's showing in the way I feel. 

I will stay on plan, I will stay on track and I will figure this out.
