Its frustrating to do all of what I believe are the right things and not see that scale move. I did look back over my weight loss tracker and I weighed 206 exactly 7 days prior to this past Sat/Sun. So, I could say that I lost 2 lbs in one week. I had set the goal at 203.5 b/c I'd also weighed 205.5 that same week I'd recorded 206. I guess I'm trying to encourage myself to replace the disappointment. I ate fine yesterday, I also got my butt on the treadmill and walked on an incline for 45mins. I really didn't want to do it, it was 7pm and I made my kids wait 45 mins to color easter eggs so I could get it done. I didn't feel like pushing myself b/c I'm disappointed, but I know I can't give up on the exercise. So I gave myself permission to walk instead as long as I did something. Today, I'll go to the gym at lunch and work on the elliptical instead of running also.
Last night, I ate a cup of ice cream. I didn't eat much for dinner and I was frustrated with myself and recognized that I was breaking down and allowing myself to eat what I shouldn't. Its the disappointment that I'm feeling that led me to that. It was after that, that I decided to get on the treadmill. I don't want to give in and give up.
I'll eat right today, I'm drinking much more water than I was, and do this for another week. Easter will be hard with all the chocolate around but I will be accountable. I plan to work out 5x this week again and we'll see what happens. Just to get to 203 would be wonderful. Why does my body want to hang on to this weight? What is wrong with me?? If I was reading this on someone else's blog I might think - that person isn't reallly eating 1000-1200 calories or not exercising perhaps at the right intensity. I AM and that's the frustrating part b/c I know I am. I also know I've lost weight this way before just a couple of months ago so why isn't it working now?
Ok, rant over. Moving on. Pissed off, but moving on.....
