Frustration and the scale.
Tuesday, March 18, 2014
I am a Scottish Highland Game athlete. I am working on gaining strength right now. I am also working on losing the gut that I acquired over last season.
It is a difficult task trying to lose weight. It is even a more difficult task trying to balance losing fat while gaining muscle.
I. Am. Frustrated.
I'm doing all the right things. I'm eating better. Lifting more. Challenging myself daily. And the scale doesn't budge. This has been over 3 months, so it's nothing new. I only weigh in once a week if that so I'm not expecting a miracle here! My clothes are getting tighter. So it's not like I'm losing size.
I'm NOT giving up. I'm NOT giving in. I WILL fight through this and I WILL succeed.
Every once in a while, a silly picture pops up that resonates with me. This one hit my facebook feed today.
Stand back. Refocus. CALM DOWN. It's a process, not an event. It will work.
Fighting the fat every day. I will use the anger to lift more and melt the offending fat off my body. I will NOT go back to the old habits of eating my frustration.
