I haven't blogged in over 6 months... sorry for ignoring you my spark friends!
Anyway I have a new system where if i dont workout i have to weigh myself which I dread and typically I only end up weighing myself once or twice a week. But the scale isn't moving even though i've kicked up my workouts and i'm eating clean at least 80% of the time.
Basically i'm completely frustrated, i know its not as simple as eat less+ exercise more= lose weight but i've been working at this for what seems like forever and i'm 20 lbs heavier now than I was a year ago today. I'm not going to say that i eat perfectly all of the time but I dont cheat very often and i've changed my "cheat meals" into more healthy foods than I would have previously considered a cheat meal. I drink at least 80 oz of water everyday.
I have set myself some new goals and if the scale doesn't move by the end of them then i'm going to the doctor because I really dont know what else to do.
here are my Goals by September 1st
Exercise minutes: Minimum of 1500
Weight: 195 (12 lbs lost)
Pants size: 10
I'm finding it incredibly difficult to stay positive when i'm working hard and nothing is changing after months of hard work. I set goals back in February to be a size 10 by my graduation and a size 8 by my boyfriend's birthday (which is in 3 days) and i'm still hardly fitting into my size 12's. some days they are baggy and some days they are tight but the scale never moves.
Any advice and words of encouragement are greatly appreciated.
