No Change: The Scale Won't Budge
Thursday, January 16, 2014
199 pounds still and I gotta admit I feel rather crappy about it. Sure I can't expect a weight loss every single week (it's known in my journey that I have plateaus almost ever other week since I started) so it's to be expected that I'm going to start slowing down on the loss I see on the scale. I'm trying to be positive by remembering how many pounds I've lost so far but it doesn't make it feel any better that I feel like I'm failing on the home stretch. I have about 25 more pounds to lose and I've heard the last few are going to be the hardest to lose. So far that sentiment is ringing true to me or at least it feels that way. Instead of worrying or crying about it (I've felt like bursting into tears) I am choosing not to do so and focus on having a great birthday weekend where I will make sure to exercise each day and work on eating healthy while away. I'm bringing my food scale, kettlebell, sports bra, and my work out pants so I have absolutely no reason or excuse to make not to work out. Tomorrow we're driving up to Chico which is a 3 hour long drive and more than likely I'm going to be tired when we arrive so I'm going to do a morning workout before I jump in the shower and get ready to leave. I am determined to lose these last few pounds! I know I can do it but not seeing a change on the scale really truly sucks. Also to make things ever worse is my stomach is hurting and the stool softeners my Dr. gave me are not working. I feel severely constipated and I haven't really eaten anything that should warrant that but I guess I'll try my best to choke down my fiber drink. I have the fiber you mix with water but I was wondering does anyone have any tips on how to not make it taste so horrible?
