Wanting to see results
Thursday, May 31, 2012
I've been taking this whole lifestyle change more seriously for 9 weeks today, and stepping it up even further for the past 2 weeks (doing the 30 Day shred 6 days a week--it's a killer!). I'm seeing some results, but to be completely honest, I don't feel like it's enough to merit all this hard work!
I lose about 1 lb/week, but not every week. Some clothes are getting loose, but the next size down doesn't fit yet. I have more energy in the mornings, but I'm exhausted at bedtime and my muscles are sore most of the time. I'm making healthy food choices and drinking loads of water, but I still feel like I'm denying myself (I've been craving fish & chips...but I don't want to derail the limited progress that I've worked so hard for). I'm moody--my fiance and I have been having more arguments lately and it's mostly down to my crankiness. I'm stressing out about the wedding (3 months to go), and depressed about the fact the dress doesn't fit and won't fit in time now. Getting it altered is admitting that I failed at weight loss. It's so hard to admit that, when I'm working so hard and I've lost some weight--just not enough.
Realistically, I know that 9 weeks isn't that long. I just really want to see some results that will make me feel like all of this stress and pain is worth it!
