Well, I have been active in this new lifestyle for just under two weeks and I am already feeling discouraged. The reason why, you ask....Because even though I feel better, have more energy, feel motivated to keep moving forward, continue to go to the rec center even though I am overwhelmed by it all, drink water instead of pop, and make reasonably better food choices, I am not seeing the pay off on the scale.
And I can already here what many of you might say to me...aren't the pros you just listed more than enough? Aren't those all reasons why you started this journey to begin with? And my answer to you would be yes; a RESOUNDING yes. But I set myself up for the expectation that I would see noticeable number differences right away and I guess I just need to hear that my expectation isn't very realistic. I need to hear that I will see it as long as I keep doing what I am doing and improving on my goals day by day. I guess what I am really asking for is some support...and that is hard for me because I don't like asking for help. But here I am! HELP!
I know that this effort is worth it and I will continue to move forward; I just really needed to vent my frustration and talk myself into believing it as much as you all do. I am so grateful for Spark People and I am so grateful for the friends and supporters I have gotten to know so far.
Here's to another day of getting Sparked and living a better life!
