Trying to Stick With It
Wednesday, March 14, 2007
So. I've been working with my personal trainer since Feb. 6. I love working with him - I really, really do. And I get so much more done when I work out with him than when I work out alone! But it's getting frustrating not seeing results for 2 weeks in a row now.
I keep telling myself several things:
1. This doesn't happen overnight. It took months to put the weight on, it's going to take just as long (if not longer) to take it off.
2. Muscle weighs more than fat. Just because I have a week or two of no weight loss doesn't mean I'm not making PROGRESS.
3. I AM getting stronger. He's even said so. He has commented twice now on the fact that he's bumping up my workouts because I'm progressing.
4. What I'm doing is good for me, even if the results aren't immediate. I am doing the right thing.
But I can't help it... some days I just NEED to see that scale have a lower number on it. I NEED to put on a pair of jeans and feel like they are looser. I NEED to look in the mirror and not HATE what I see.
I just need it.
I'm trying. I really am.
