The frustrating journey
Tuesday, July 26, 2011
I didn't expect this to be easy. Honestly, I didn't. I knew I would have ups and downs.
I have turned down junk food, cakes, pies, cheesecake.
I have chosen to get up and move when I am tired after a long day and just want to veg out in front of the tv.
I have celebrated my non scale victories: I can breathe better, as my asthma is better controlled, I feel more emotionally well and balanced, my job is very busy, but I am on top of the work asked of me.
I have had 1395 fitness minutes this month. 225 this week alone already.
I am not taking any of that away from my progress.
I am doing all the work.
So.............. I just don't get why I am not seeing progress where I REALLY want to see it. MY CLOTHES. My weight is at 184 for the second week in a row. I have actually gained a pound in the last 3 weeks. I have not lost an inch. Every objective measure of weight loss progress shows I am not doing enough.
It is just so frustrating to eat right, track/log my food, work out and have minimal to no progress. I must be doing something wrong, I just don't know what it is.
I am trying not to be frustrated and sad about this, but today is not a good day for me....
