Lost but not gone?

Monday, March 14, 2011

So, Saturday when I went to the gym I saw a great number when I stepped on the scale. I almost didn't believe it. Actually, I didn't believe it at first and checked again at the end of my workout. It said 210. I haven't been that close to being under 200 pounds in almost a decade. The only problem with seeing this number is that I feel like it's not reflecting the truth. True, my clothes are fitting better and my face is definitely thinner but I thought that if I lost 25 pounds (which I have according to the scale) that I would have dropped a size. I'm close but not there yet. I'm trying not to be disappointed but it's hard. I'm going to keep on working at it, continue training for that 5K and hopefully I'll be in another size soon. And maybe, just maybe, I can reach Onederland before summer hits.

    Weight loss is quite possibly the most emotional roller coaster I've ever ridden. Confusing, frustrating, exhilarating, fulfilling and constantly cycling. This isn't a one day thing, it isn't a one size thing ... it's a lifetime thing. I agree with everyone else ... don't sweat the small stuff cuz in the big picture - what is a size when it comes to women's clothing? Who makes the clothing makes a HUGE difference in the sizing! Again - you feel better when you eat healthy and move your body ... THAT is what is important ... plus the fact that a beautiful you is already there! You can do the rest of this journey ... it's all about just keeping that commitment to yourself! YOU GO, GIRL!

    Funny observation: you and I are worrying about opposite things. I've lost a size, but not much in the way of pounds. How silly we are! Regardless of size or weight, we are better off for moving more and eating better! Good luck with your 5k training. I did my first one last weekend and ended up determined to train harder.

    Do NOT stress that! It took me a little over 30lbs to drop a size! However, after that, it only took me another 12-15lbs to drop another size. As long as you're feeling great, don't sweat it! emoticon

    Relax. Dont stress. Keep at it. It is working. Just because you cant see it does not mean you are not decreasing in size. Slow and steady is good.

    I had to drop almost 10kg to go down a dress size and i am still not getting a comforable fit in the smaller size. Stay strong and focused. emoticon emoticon
