Thank you all for your kind words, encouragement, and support....it really means a lot, and helps a lot too!!! I've been pushing through it, even though I feel frustrated and worried I won't see results, i'm on Day 2 of Level 2 (holy planks btw!!!!!).
AMANDAB89: I did take a picture on my first day but have not taken another picture since then. I'm waiting for that outfit to be out of the wash (figure it cant hurt to be consistent in clothes too hehe) and I'll take another picture to see how they compare. I *feel* thinner, but my measurements don't reflect that. My mom says she can see the difference in my body, I really only see it in my face (which is a start atleast!!). So glad to know I'm not alone in feeling this way and others felt this way too and pushed through it for results! Thanks!!
RYDERB: *takes deeeeep breath* You're totally right, i know if weight comes off quickly it'll come back on quickly too...guess this can be a practice in gaining some patience lol. I've always given up on work outs in the past because of how slow the results come, but I need to stick with it this time. I dont want to be over weight anymore! I've been tracking my food and staying within the 1200-1500 cal as sparks recommends. Also uping my protein and water, cutting out junk food and soda. My food habits are part of the reason i'm overweight, I love junk and that is changing! I try to take my weight and measurements first thing in the morning on Saturdays. I weigh myself in my pjs every time, which are light weight cotton pants and a tee, so that it's consistent. When I do my measurements, I actually do them against my bare skin so I don't have to factor in fabric or bra padding etc, into the measurements. I lost the inch from my waist and two inches from my bust....this weeks measurements are the same for the bust, but I've gained back a half an inch in the waist....everywhere else is the same measurements as when i started. The plus, my bras fit better! Thanks for the encouragement, I *am* worth it and I have been reminding myself of that over and over as well as the quote about which choice I want cause they're all hard lol. Thanks!
JASHANTI: I do weigh myself in the same thing every time, Its crazy how clothes can effect the weight so differently, who knew a short sleeve shirt vs a long sleeve shirt in the exact same material could make a difference! thanks!!
SINGER73: I see you commented on both my issues, thats for the double support! Shin splints are getting better! I still have to take it easy on the cardio, but I'm working through it with shoes and better stretches!! The end of May is where my second goal is (March 17th finish 30DS and hopefully fit comfortable in size 12 skinny jeans for a reunion i have that weekend. May 27th marks the start of my beach weekends and I'd like to have made a dent in my long term goal of being 170lbs, but my may goal is to be comfortable and confident in my bikini). I'm so glad to hear you're seeing movement in the scale, great job! I'm gonna keep pushing!
Thank you all again for the support! I'll keep ya posted Together, we can all reach out goals! :)
