Hang in there - refuse to get discouraged
Sunday, March 27, 2011
Well, I was hoping for more weight loss in this challenge. I had reconnected on SP a couple of weeks before the challege started, and had lost a few pounds prior to the challenge. Thought since I had just started, i would lose some initial weight faster than I have.
I've tracked food most days and almost always below my calorie limit, and exercised more this week. I showed about 3 pound weight loss on Friday, but then on Saturday was back up 2 pounds. Attended an open house for some friends here in Arizona on Friday afternoon, and did eat too much, but didn't "way over do it".
Also, I've been on vacation and am weighing on a different scale than when we started the challenge.
I refuse to get discouraged and commit to:
Increase the frequency of exercise
Continue to track food
Pay close attention to the carbs - I know I lose very slowly if I don't watch carbs, and keep them around 100-125. I'm Type II diabetic and when first diagnosed the dietician told me to keep them below 135
I feel much better than the weight loss shows and some of my clothes are a little looser. I'm going to focus on the positive changes I see and feel, and keep doing to do hoping the scale will follow me.
