Getting a Little Discouraged
Sunday, August 30, 2009
Well, this is the 4th week I've been at 220 lbs. Getting a bit discouraged. My grand plan is to lose at least 3 lbs a month until I get to my goal weight. To me 1 lb in a month is not acceptable but I don't quite know what to do about it. This is going to take some thought.
I have been walking around our small MH park - once around is 0.17 mile - at least one lap a day for months. Sometimes, depending on how hot it was out and/or how my ankel felt, I'd do 2 laps around once a day. Recently I've upped it to 3 laps - which equates to 0.5 mile - twice a day and still no weight loss.
I've been basically good with my eating plan. Paying attention to calories etc. . I haven't "cheated". As a matter of fact I've been under my low number a number of times.
Could my body think I am starving it and refuses to lose? That may be it. It also could be that I'm not drinking as much water as I should. I will remedy that.
My goal for August was to lose 3 lbs. I lost 1 lb. Guess it is better than gaining I suppose but that wasn't the goal. I thought 3 lbs a month was doable and I still think so..
I WILL NOT let this get to me.
I AM going to keep trying.
I WILL continue to watch and track what I eat.
I WILL continue to drink as much water as I can every day. I've never gotten to the 8 glasses a day that is recommended but I CAN get 6 into me. The goal is still 8 glasses a day.
I WILL continue to walk 3 laps around the MH park twice a day. Back at it tomorrow. I decided to give myself a day off today after I noticed that, although the humidity is down it was 86 degrees out at 9:00 am today. I may walk tonight after it cools off a bit.
I WILL NOT allow this to defeat all I have done so far.
I WILL NOT give up on myself. I've come a long way in the last 4 months and I owe it to myself to keep on keeping on.
I WISH this site had more fonts to use for expression LOL ... ...
Now that I've gotten it out I feel a bit better about the whole situation.
