Week 4 coming to a close

Saturday, December 22, 2012

The first two weeks were absolutely amazing and I could tell how much better I was feeling overall. I also lost 5 pounds in the first two weeks. Last week was a bit of a downer since my weight didn't budget and as this week comes to a close I notice I am up a half a pound. Hmm. I've been pretty good with my diet and I've been exercising a lot even adding strength exercises the last two weeks. Today I am taking the day off. I plan to be somewhat active though. So far today I've blown my diet and I don't plan on tracking my calories. I am in protest sticking my tongue out at my diet and my efforts. I realize I am only hurting myself but I can't figure out how I could gain after being so good. Maybe my body is just mad at me from gaining and losing so many times in the past and it's just fed up (pardon the pun) and plans on hanging on to this weight. I am not feeling motivated today at all. I shouldn't have weighed myself. Well, tomorrow is another day and there is the rest of today that I can be careful with. I'm not sure how people with a whole lot of weight to lose can stick so well to their diets and exercise. I don't have a lot to lose but I feel its a losing battle. Maybe PMS has begun because of my negativity or I just got discouraged from a weight gain.

    Maybe with all that exercise, you are building muscle..that weighs more than fat...and muscle burns more calories even at rest..so be patient. Remember, too, your body will fluctuate with hormones, diet, even the weather. Don't expect miracles...just keep taking each day as it comes...and do the best you can. It WILL pay off in the end if you don't quit too soon. Don't Quit....ever.

    Don't give up!! I'm just finished my 4th week too and I've struggled a bit the last few days because of all the parties and dinner invites but even if I'm not staying exactly in my calorie range I'm still WAY better off then what I was 4 weeks ago! I keep telling myself this isn't a diet, it is a new way of life and no matter what I can't go back to eating the way I was BEFORE!


    Good Luck and keep pressing on!!!
