Danger, Will Robinson! Apathy is trying to attack!

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

The encouragement from Jarol7 as a comment in my last blog keeps replaying in my mind...

"The scale owes you ... if ... you are sticking to you plan and your plan is reduced calories.

Well...I have been sticking to my plan and the scale is showing no signs of moving. It has to be the fact that I'm on my second round of antibiotics for a UTI and that I haven't had energy to do much of anything but get through my days. I'm starting to feel better...but my whole body is fatigued. I'm looking forward to when I feel "normal" again.

My biggest battle now is apathy... When you don't see movement on the scale or feel good there's no reward for the efforts you're making. I'm even having a hard time tracking my food in a timely manner. Meaning...I used to track the moment I ate something... Now, I'm playing catch up at the end of the day or even into the next day. I know this is a place that's screaming, "Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!"

So...I'm blogging about it...just to remind myself that there are reasons we track...and reasons we blog and reasons we are in a community to encourage one another. That reason is to lose weight and to help you do the same.

Don't let apathy get the best of you... Hang in there. I will too. The scale does owe me and I'm waiting for pay day!

  It is frustrating when the numbers don't budge... but apathy is easy to catch anytime from boredom or being strict. But when one is run down and sick, you have to give yourself some grace. emoticon emoticon
