A friend in need… is a pain in the a@%… that is a quote from a friend of mine, not my opinion, LOL… but I am a friend in need today.
I haven’t bothered posting here announcing that I am ‘on the wagon again’ but at this point, I am hovering at 12 lbs. lost since January 1st. I am beginning to lose heart a little and know that I shouldn’t. I am making a LIFE CHANGE for my own good… but God, would it KILL YOU to give me an incentive of losing at least a pound a week?
True I’ve lost the 12 lbs. in 11 weeks, but seeing results literally every few days was SO inspiring!!! I’ve gotten addicted to positive feedback from the damn scale that now I want to throw it at the wall!
I’m at the gym every day… I do a total body workout that my trainer put together, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. And I try and walk/jog 3 miles every day in between. I usually take Tuesdays and Saturdays off but with the slowdown of weight loss, I’m going every day (dammit).
I’m not on a diet per se… I’m using MyFitnessPal to track my caloric intake and stay between 1200-1400 calories a day… and of course the more I exercise, the more calories it gives me (that’s an added bonus of doing the 3 miles every other day). Plus I log my strength training and it doesn’t calculate calories, so I don’t get credit which is probably why I’m losing so fast… or it could be that I was so darned overweight that the first 12 were icing on the proverbial cake (that I’m not allowed to eat!).
Oh well, I will persevere. I have big goals. I put it all on in the the last 10 years and I guess it won’t fall off overnight.
Don’t quit, can’t quit.
