It's getting harder folks.

Monday, January 30, 2012

Over the past 3 weeks I have lost 2lbs per week. Yes, I know a loss is a loss is a loss but after months of 7-8lb a week losses it's a bit hard to swallow. And those 2lb losses have not been easy to come by, they have required my going to the gym (which I have not really done until now), and paying attention to what I eat. So it's Monday, a fresh week, a fresh way, a fresh plan. I had my protein shake this morning (eww, eww..gag, gag) and then went to the gym for my work out before going to work. I knew that eventually my butt would have to get into gear and step up to hit my goals, I guess I just thought I would have more of a "lazy" period. I haven't even hit the under 200 goal yet (ok 8 more lbs, but still)..I wanted to be under 190 before my surgeons appoint at the end of February. I still have these goals and I want to make them work, guess I just have to get my butt in gear and work at them.

    I think you are doing awesome! I know 2 pounds per week doesn't sound like much but it does mean you are losing fat. Not water weight but that stubborn hard to lose fat.

    Have you taken measurements? You very well may see that although you are down 8 pounds, you have lost inches. So many people shrink in size but not on the scale.

    Keep up the FANTASTIC work!! You will DO this!!!
