What the heck is going on??

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

I believe we all have had this issue but really....I've been working out consistently for 6 weeks now. 6 days a week with cardio and lifting routine set up by a trainer. I am going in today to have her change it up since it's been 6 weeks. I wasn't tracking my food for probably the first 3-4 weeks. Thought I could do it in my head but honestly that wasn't quite working. I feel spectacular as far as motivation, energy etc...BUT WHAT THE HECK...I haven't lost a stinkin' pound. I know I can't go by what the scale says, whatever, we all like to see the number drop. But come on day I'm down 1.5 then I'm back up.
I believe things are changing with my body, my husband says I am toner. My pants are fine not really showing too much sign of weight loss. ITS SO FRUSTRATING!!

I will keep at it though because I love the way I'm feeling otherwise. Haven't felt this good in years. Hopefully a smaller pant size is coming.

Have a happy and healthy day!

    Hi Gymgirl, did you happen to read this blog today?

It really made me stop and think that yes, it is worth it to just lose a pound even if it takes 2 weeks! A half a pound is better than no pound right? I hope you stay with it and know that you have others that can't get rid of the fat over night. I guess we didn't gain it over night even if it seems as though we have.

    I know it's a pain in the rear end but you HAVE to keep track of your food and you have to for at least a 'bit' of time say a good month probably several. Yeah it's no fun but it helps you stay accurate and accountable.

    I stay off the scale (I weigh in no more than 1x a month). Just go by your measurments and how you look/feel.

Your muscle will increase as your fat decreases. Be patient, those smaller pants will come. emoticon

    I'm in the same boat as you. It's really frustrating...but it's more exercise that before so something has to be changing. It's impossible that it's not. My bf says I'm looking better...just wish I could see it.
I'm focusing on how tight my calves look lol. GL on your journey!

I have 3 Grad parties this weekend YIKES!! One is tonight at my neighbors and I feel it's also going to end up being a SUMMER IS HERE party. Lots of drinking and eating. I know how many calories I have left for the day and I am determined to stick to it. But...sometimes you get around your friends and have a drink and then it all goes down the tube.

Off I go!!

O.K. so this may be kinda lame but I'm SO HAPPY WITH MYSELF. Everyday I'm figuring out a little more on this darn page of mine and I'm so proud of myself because I am totally computer illiterate. Kudos to Sparkpeople for helping with my weight and helping me learn something. I've been a member for a long time but just started the whole page thing. IT'S FUN!!

Have a great day everyone, and find some little thing in your life that makes you happy! emoticon


HIDING from a friend!!

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Has anyone ever done this?? I had a high school girlfriend come into town LAST YEAR! I told her I would get together with her and when she called I totally didn't answer the phone and blew her off the whole time she was here. All because of my weight.

I was so thin in high school and she was a little bigger than me. But now she is smaller. I knew she would be so shocked to see me that I just didn't want to go through the emotions of feeling like garbage and feeling FAT.

So guess what? She's coming into town at the end of July. I figure by then I will have lost close to 20 lbs. but still want to loose another 20. I'm going to bite the bullet and get together with her. She's bringing her kids and I haven't seen them in years. I'm sure I will be feeling great by the end of July, but am still a little nervous.

I'm healthy and happy and I guess that's what's important. emoticon

    I'm inspired by you!

Your friend will be thrilled to connect with you again. She may have something in her life she would like to be different, too, and will probably be inspired by you hard work, dedication, and commitment to making the changes in your life for the better.

I grew up in another state but haven't seen my childhood best friend in a long time. She sends Christmas cards with a picture of her family, and she's remained thin and gorgeous while I've yo-yod. I visited family last year but didn't let her know, even though I wasn't more than 10 minutes from her house because I was so ashamed of my weight. I'm going back in August and was already making excuses about being too busy with family commitments. Thanks for helping me to banish the inner demon.

    Yep, I've done this too...and then felt really guilty about it later. Old friends should be supportive and understanding, however I think they can't help but compare you now to the you they remember. Keep going strong! You'll feel great about seeing her at the end of July.
