I got on the scale this morning to find a weight loss of 2.2 lbs. At first, I was disappointed because I totally kicked butt this week but then I realized it's that time of the month so my numbers could be a little screwy. We'll see next week.
But during that short pessimistic period after getting on the scale, this is what my brain said: "What is the point in going to the gym 5 days a week and eating below 1600 calories most days of the week if I am just going to lose the same amount of weight that I lose when I go to the gym 4 days a week and eat around 1800 calories a day?"
I nipped that in the bud real quick because 2.2 lbs is really good and even if I don't make my shorter term goals like losing 5 lbs by next week (that would also have included the weight loss I showed this morning which now leaves me to lose 2.8 lbs next week) and also to weigh 210 by 07/08/12, I am totally on track to lose 50 lbs by Halloween. So that is a positive. Gotta keep going.
My workout with my new trainer on Thursday was much better then our first workout. No anxiety attacks and a little more like my sessions with my previous trainer, although still very different. But it appears a little more tolerable. I gave him my print outs of my nutrition tracker so I am curious to see what he says about my eating. He is going to be in for a surprise with this weeks because yesterday was not good at all. My lunch had to be guesstimated so it put me well over 2000 calories consumed. Oh well. I am not a machine and not perfect. I was at a birthday party at the lake and really had no choice but to eat whatever they had. I only ate a little bit and didn't go overboard but since I didn't have my food scale with me, I had to guess.
