Day 38: Little Improvement

Monday, August 05, 2013

So I weighed in yesterday and I lost .04 of a pound... that was really discouraging to me since I worked out every day last week aside from last Monday (the day I re-started really focusing on what I was eating). I know that I didn't make the best decisions this weekend because there were barbeques and parties, so I guess it's my own fault, but I just expected more than I saw on the scale.

I know that I cannot allow myself to give up again. The only way to change my life is to dive in head first and take the plunge. I've been inspired by so many of your stories and I want to be able to say I'm one of those people who could change my life, too. It's just starting out slower than I anticipated...

Today I'll pick up Jillian Michaels again. I went for runs this weekend using my C25K app and I loved it! Running is so freeing for me. The app I'm using gives me intervals and prompts me when to run and walk, which is easier than when I was just running and running until I couldn't anymore. It's kind of gloomy out today but maybe I'll want to give another run a go after Jillian. I may as well take advantage of the free time I have today because the rest of the week doesn't look quite so promising. 2 weeks of summer left.

Hope everyone else is doing well and staying on track! Thanks for reading!

    I know how you are feeling all too well. I had busted my butt, watched what I was eating, etc everything but didn't have a big loss at all. I was so discouraged and wanted to give up b/c I felt as if it was all in vain. But when I took my measurements I had lost several inches compared to the weight lost. So it brought it all into perspective for me. I also think that our bodies are a week behind...I think that if you keep with you plan for this week, then you'll see the loss you are looking for by the end of the week. :) Maybe try taking your measurements this week and then in 4 weeks, take them again. I think you'll be surprised. :) Keep it up and don't let the number on the scale discourage you. You CAN reach your goals and you WILL reach your goals! emoticon

    1.) You lost.

    2.) What's done is done.

    3.) Sounds like you have a good plan in place! You know what to do. emoticon

    Sorry to hear the scale isn't cooperating! Gr... Just keep it up, you can do it! Its already been said, but even little losses are losses. And if you aren't measuring- do it! It may give you a more accurate measurement of your change, especially if you are building muscle.

    I have never heard of that app... I think I'll check it out! Thanks for sharing emoticon

    Also, try not to be discouraged by the small weight loss. I go through the exact same thing and it is awfully hard to stay positive. But SP helps, and together we are all doing it!!
