first month... one pound???
Monday, March 04, 2013
well, i was right, i thought i would feel crummy, and i do...
i have been at this for one month now... i lost ONE pound. yes, it is one pound gone, but gosh, i was so hopeful like it is the "norm" that the first month it is quite common to lose up to 10 pounds. i know, every body is different, i know that i have "yo-yo'd" a lot of my adult life, i know that i am 45 years old.
i have worked out at least 5 times a week, doing cardio, strength and yoga. the only thing i probably could go down on my calorie, fat, protein, carbs. spark says that i could eat between 1,800-2,100. maybe i need to do 1,700-1,800 calories?
on the positive side, i lost some inches.
THREE in my chest (which i really would like to keep!)
TWO in my waist
TWO in my tummy
TWO in my hips
ONE in my thigh
yes, i feel better, have more energy, ect, but i am still a "scale" girl.
i am so scared that i will only lose a pound a month! i want to lose at LEAST 5, or more.
i know my body is fighting me, my body is thinking, "hang on guys, she won't do this for very much longer, then it will be back to bon-bons, and sitting on the couch." i am just frustrated... i so want to lost 30 pounds by this summer. feeling a little down.
