I'm not defeated!
Wednesday, September 02, 2015
I have been trying really hard to lose weight but despite my efforts I've only lost 1 pound since July. I woke up with thoughts of "Why should I even bother working out? Nothing is changing anyway." But when I really thought about it that isn't true. My clothes are fitting better and I have more energy in general. A few people have even complimented me, saying I look thinner. Maybe I am building muscle to replace fat lost or something.
I actually enjoy working out once I am doing it and I try to remind myself of that when I am dreading putting on my sneakers to ride my bike or hit the treadmill. But it's easy to forget when looking at the blasted scale and feeling defeated like I did this morning. After talking myself into getting on the treadmill I felt my mood lift. I decided to take a pic during my cool down walk that I can look back on to see how happy and accomplished I felt. It's a reminder that the only workout I will regret is the one I didn't do!
I need to have faith that if I keep working at it the scale will budge sooner or later.
