i just commented on a blog with this topic
I think it's timely....since you are all starting. restarting, recommitting
working your TUSH off and the SCALE is being a !@#@R% as usual!
I want to share my story
If I listened to the SCALE I would have quit at WK 2!!!!!!
I started at 180 in Aug '10 at size busting out of 12...so 12/14....height 5'4
Me bef in july 180 vs present me 170
I started SP........lost 10 lbs in a wk!!!!!!
that is normal for me ;p
when i change my habits
tracking, clean eating, at least 30 mins fitness a day
WOOOHOOO.......170...SP is working..in a wk!!!!
I found running
170......for 1.5 month! WHAT?????????????
thank goodness for SP
you guys tell me to keep at it....
Only thing to keep me going is my progress pic
my first PLATEAU at 170
then by weird miracle the scale moved again
by then I got my first 5k under my belt
Uh....160 for 6 months lol
my second Plateau at 160 (4 months pics)
by this time i ran 2 half marathon!!! 2!!!!!
I was so upset I made these pics
7 month of running .....170 to 160 (last pic is on my HM day)
getting to size 2 at 160 (I can't find the size 2 pic.....)
My 0 to HM pic (170 vs 156)
My IDEAL pic...day 1, my inspirational body, and me then at 160
Ok........que....CRASH and BURN
Duel exercise (run in the am, 90x in the pm)......i wanted the F--ing scale to move!
Depression....i wasn't happy with me.......at goal
So I gained 20lb in my haze and downward spiral of 2 month
a small faint sp-friends voice brought me back in aug'11
And I am back with full force!!!!
today I stand at 173-5!!! a total loss of 5 lbs!!!
but here is what it look like
day 1 tank pic, vs me last month
me at peak 156 vs me last month 173 lol
here is my little black dress...that I had to buy at 156...and it fit yesterday at 173
so I say
SCREW the !#@$#@%#$%% scale
keep keeping at it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
