Today I got up early again (9 days straight) to do my cardio and I started to feel a bit discouraged. In the first couple days I lost 6 pounds - I realize this is mostly likely just water weight but its still 2 pounds! In the last 9 days I have made drastic changes to the types ad amount of food I eat. I calculated that I was mindlessly consuming almost 4000 calories some days! So this 6 pounds made me feel good. Made me feel like what I was doing was worth it. But I haven't lost anything since. And as I was on the Treadclimber and I started to feel like maybe 15 minutes isn't doing anything and its a waste of time. Maybe all these headaches and getting up early has been for nothing. Maybe baby steps doesn't work and I'm just fooling myself.
Alas, I finished my workout and took a shower. Suddenly I had so much energy and I was in a great mood. I decided to weigh myself - no change, but not surprising. Then I decided to take measurements and i had lost 2 inches off my waist!!
I have a lot of energy today and the 2 inches is making me feel even better. Hopefully I can keep this in mind next time I feel I'm not making progress. Success is more than just numbers.
