Good and Bad

Thursday, September 06, 2007

Well this blog is being written because is my daily challenge. I would like to do this more, but I don’t really have much time. I am really happy because my bf is now helping me lose weight. He is encouraging me and being very supportive. It has only been for a few days now and I already feel better knowing that there is someone who is keeping tabs in me.

I have also been discouraged. I know I have been try to lose weight too long (3 weeks) but I haven’t lost a single pound. In the past when I have dieted I always lost about 5lbs the first week and 1 to 2 pounds after. It’s now 3 weeks and I haven’t lost one. I am working out everyday and watching what I eat. I don’t do 30 minutes everyday but I never do less than 15 minutes (sometimes it’s 60 minutes) and isn’t something better than nothing? If the scale could just go down 1 little pound that would make this feel worth it. That all the food I could’ve eaten and all the days I could’ve slept in longer and the times I worked out instead of spending time with the bf would be worth the effort.

    Have you noticed any other differences in your body or how you feel. For me it is worth it just to feel like I am not weighted down by foods that are bad for me or to feel energized from working out. I know these aren't the tangible results you are looking for, but if you stick with it a little longer you WILL see results. It is much harder to be at a weight that is borderline healthy and lose weight than to be extremely obese. Your body just seems to want to hang on to that extra weight because of some stupid deep-seeded primal fear that you never know when your next meal may be. It will take time for your body to realize that it doesn't need that weight to survive and then the pound loss will kick in. If anything else recognize that your lifestyle is much healthier now and that you are at much less risk of getting sick or having health problems down the road.
