Still kickin', Cause I won't Ever Stop Trying!

Saturday, March 30, 2013

I have been with SparkPeople for while now off and on. I am going to try to get back into it now because it is a big help and has many features that can benefit me.
So here I am. It's March 30th 2013. I have been doing Weight Wars with my boyfriend and my sister since January 7th, 2013. Weight wars is where we do a weekly weigh in and who ever loses the least of their body fat percentage for that week has to pay 25 dollars.
Since that began, i'm only down by about 1 pound. But the funny thing is, I know I look better since I started! I've been going to the gym and doing cardio and lifting weights. I can tell that my clothes are much looser and I feel and look better in them. But the strange thing is is that the scale is telling my I only lost a pound.
So i've been dwelling on the scale for awhile and got a bit mad/contrary for the last three weeks however I refuse to give up. I am happier with myself now and I also made a wise health choice on January 7th also where I decided to begin a gluten-free diet. It is going excellent for me.
So, even though I'm in a plateau right now I refuse to give up. I've decided to stop lifting the weights for now and focus fully on cardio. Very soon i'm going to begin sit-ups and backwards sit-ups to help get my core strength up. I have a big desire to get toned and be stronger however I am putting that on the back burner for now until I lose a large chunk of my body fat percentage (I have $25 a week on this!). Eventually though when I get my weight down I really want to get toned and fit. I not only desire to be skinny (Like I use to), I also want to have a fit body with curves, abs, and a nice lady bicep ;).
So i've been going to the gym for awhile now and I'm really excited to get some results and see some progress on the scale. This week sometime I might add some photos of myself as a judgement to see how far i've come. Maybe even to a video blog, hmm?
Over and out Sparkers! Leave comments or questions below! :) Thanks for reading!

  Hey, stop obsessing over the scale. You are doing the right thing. Your clothes fit better because you are building muscle. It weighs the same as fat, but is more compact. The weight will eventually come off, too, but give yourself lots of credit for exercising.
