Today is Monday. The Monday that I got on the scale after trying hard for 2 weeks. The Monday that is technically a month after I’m been trying to lose weight since my rheumatologist told me I am extremely obese. I don’t know where I REALLY started weight-wise a month ago. I wasn’t physically able get on the scale then because it was too close after having my bunion surgery. So I’m going off of my weight after 2 weeks of trying. I really wanted to see 2 lbs down (I don’t think asking for 1 lb a week is much!). I would have been so happy to see more and was kind of even expecting it because I was really pretty good! (no snacks at night, ice cream after dinner once a week instead of every night, no dessert after lunch when it had been a daily thing, adding in arm weights every other day, adding in rowing this past week).
But nope…I was HIGHLY disappointed with the scale. ONE POUND. ONE MEASLY POUND. After busting butt for 2 weeks. SO FRUSTRATING.
But I’m not going to give up. I may be frustrated and mad, but I am determined. I know I looked and felt better when I weighed less and I know I will get there…even if it takes me a LONG time.
I think the other frustration I have is that I don’t feel like I OVEREAT excessively. So that makes it frustrating to not lose the weight. And I HAVE tried the Intuitive Eating and of course that got me back up to this current weight. See the frustration??!!
Okay…enough whining. Now for the determination and ACTION.
What will I do different this week?
…Increase my water consumption to 14 cups/day.
…Follow Dark Horse you tube videos for my rowing to build up time/endurance
But for tonight…pizza 🙂
