ONLY 1 POUND?!?
Saturday, November 12, 2011
Even though it has only been a few days since I started to eat better and exercise, I couldn't resist the urge to see if I have lost any weight at all, so I snuck a little peak at the scale. UGH! Only down 1 pound. I couldn't believe it. I felt so upset that I started questioning myself. Why am I going through this? It hurts. My fiance is supportive but he still eats terrible. It's hard to watch him drink a big glass of soda and eat that delicious fried chicken and cheesy rice. It makes me feel angry inside. I went to bed last night feeling mad and pathetic, which of course led to crazy dreams.
When I woke up this morning, I decided I'm not going to let that 1 pound weight loss bother me. After all, I haven't gained any weight. A pound is better than nothing at all. Then, I got the idea to see what a pound of fat even looks like. It seems like such a small number, but I wondered what it looks like inside of my body. So, I looked it up. WOW, a pound is a lot larger than I thought. Now, I don't feel so bad.
If you are interested in seeing what a pound of fat looks like, check out this video. I'm going to put the link in my Sig for those weeks when I only lose 1 pound, so I have a reminder what I've actually accomplished.
