No results!! Please Comment!

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Its been ONE week today emoticon and I have seen NO results! Its kind-of upsetting! I'm going to clean up my room, then go to work out.....And weigh myself while I'm there. The doctors scale says 154, and the scale where I workout keeps telling me 168. Hopefully it has gone down. I seriously doubt it has though.

I just don't understand! I went from eating whatever, to calorie counting and working out 5 days a week. Maybe I'm looking for results too soon... How long did you take to see results on the scale and mirror? I want to know. I am being a little over the top thinking I will see results in a week but when??? 2 WEEKS, A MONTH, A MONTH 1/2? I just need something to look forward to... emoticon

    Soror, don't give up on yourself. I have decided not to weigh myself for the remainder of the year because I need to learn to measure my success by other things.

    Those other things come in a myriad of packages. Can I run longer, yes, I ran over a mile today and then did wind sprints. Do I have more energy, yes because I am eating better and fresher food that help to make my body run more efficiently. Do my clothes fit differently, for the most part yes. I have even gotten compliments from people at church.

    The bottom line is that this is about more than the weight loss. This is about your health and your well being. Those are more precious than any weight that will be lost on the scale.

    KEEP IT MOVING Soror emoticon

    Hang in there, you can do this. Yes that crazy scale can be VERY discouraging, there are articles here about measuring your weight loss in other ways. You are not as big as some of the others (like me) so it will probably take a little longer for the scale to change but YOU should see it in your measurments and feel it in the way you feel. Do you have More Energy? Are you finding yourself accomplishing more than what you did before? My sister is alot smaller than I am and she has been here since March and she hasn't lost that much on the scale but she is doing things she NEVER could have before. Yes it can be discouraging but Look at the positive as well. YOU can totally do this! You are doing an awesome job! Just asking for Help and advice shows how much YOU really want this. KEEP it UP!

    Keep doing what you are doing!! Definitely try to find other ways to measure your progress other than on the scale and just trust that "doing the right thing, it actually works"

    give it a few months, and remember losing weight doesen't happen overnight. Continue to stick with your plan and look at how you feel on the inside with the new habits. When i started i didn't notice until people started asking which was around 2 months. By november girl you will see a differet. You got this!

    I think that everyone sees results at different times. I lost 6 pounds my first week, however, I have no doubt that this was water weight (b/c I drank a ton of water and peed like crazy!). I didn't see results in the mirror for a least a month. It's been three months now and 31 pounds...sometimes I feel like I look exactly the same. You may have other people notice the differences before you do. Keep your chin up! If you keep doing the right things, positive results are coming your way! emoticon

    Everybody is different, and how much (and what type) you work out/eat will vary your results. I didn't see results on the scale for a month but my measurements we're shrinking ebcause I was gaining muscle. Just be strong and patient, these results will last you a life time so if they take a little while to come, it's alright!
