Seeing and feeling results

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

The last few weeks I have seen little to no change on the scale. I know I was working hard and getting results because I could see it on my body and in my clothes. But for some reason I still need that darn number to move down. Two weeks ago when I gained a half pound I chalked it up to working out more. Last week when I saw the same results I figured again it was due to my increased work out sessions. I have been hitting the gym every other day for over two weeks and walking on the opposite days. I have also picked up a weekly Zumba class and been more active at home. I know I have done work towards improving my body. So tonight when I stepped on the scale and found that I Had lost 4.5 lbs why was I so surprised? I am, however, thrilled with this progress. I am officially over 20 lbs lost. I look forward to this trend continuing and I hope to see at least 2 more lbs gone next week.

    emoticon - I had a standstill in June-July with less scale movement than my previous months. Thankfully things the scale started moving again and today I was also pleasantly surprised by over 4 pound loss.
