Forgot how hard this is....


Monday, September 17, 2012

I have been tracking consistently for a week now. Trying to be much more controlled in my eating, making good choices, emoticon ing when I am OUT OF CALORIES. This stuff isn't easy. And after a week of struggling, I get on the scale to find I am down -0.6 lbs. Really? emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I've found that I lose really really slowly. It's so frustrating. Sometimes I can be patient and sometimes I get soooooooooooooooooooooooooo mad about it. I think maybe I messed up my metabolism pretty bad as a teenager and I'm paying for it now. Who knows. But I just know that the only way I can live with myself is to keep fighting and keep pushing. I have lost 40lbs -- over a very long time -- but still, thats an accomplishment and no matter how slowly it comes off, at least its coming off. If I give up, I'll hate myself. So there's only one choice. Anyway, that's how I get through it. And I just focus on making healthy choices and how that makes me feel as opposed to the weight itself.

    Yeah, it's frustrating when you try so hard and don't progress as much as you'd like. Still, though, like EMMANYC wrote, a loss is a loss and it all adds up so good for you!
