I weighed myself today and was disappointed cause I lost not even a pound. You see on the first week i lost 6 pounds. And the next two weeks I lost absolutely nothing.im working hard and eating as clean as possible so I have a reason to be disappointed, no eh? I'm on the verge of giving up ,eew right? luckily I stumbled upon sparkpeople and read several blogs. HeRe are several things that I've learned :
1. The scale is not the only determinant of success. This is so true, I may not have lost a single pound today but hey I am definitely stronger now. I can do 10 pushups now, I can't even do one when I started 3 weeks ago. I have better posture too, credits to Pilates. So you see success does not always come in numbers.
2. determination is not..... It's not when you do 10 pushups fast and easy, it's when you keep pushing when you can't even do one with proper form, it's not when you enjoy walking/running outside while people are watching, it's when it seems you'll die of shame when people sees your fatness but you keep running/walking anyway. It's not when you naturally hate fatty foods, it's when you try hard to avoid it. You see determination is not when you do things easily, its when things are hard but you keep doing them anyway.
3. Keep doing it. This is a reminder to myself that I have to keep exercising though I may not be seeing scale results. It is better than just sitting in the couch the whole day and eating junks. I have to keep pushing and I know in the end I will reap the harvest If I do not lose heart.
Let's do this!
