I want some of that instant gratification
yeah..... gimme some of that..... It's been 3 and a half weeks since the big lifestyle change. I lost 7 pounds the first 10 days, and now the scales are frozen.... I haven't lost an ounce since. I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW: your body kinda goes into shock....you're building muscles....those muscles are retaining fluid....muscle weighs more than fat. My head knows all these things, but I don't like it! I'm walking about 4 miles in an hour at least 5 times a week.... I'm watching what I eat and counting calories. I'm really doing well with that. I do splurge here and there, but I have to be realistic if this is going to last. I know that you can tell that I've lost weight... I can tell in the mirror, but I am obsessed with that large number on my scales. I can't help it. I KNOW it's just a number, but sometimes a number says a lot....The big test is next week. We're leaving Sunday to go to Orlando for 5 days. 5 days of being tempted by eating out and all kinds of goodies. I don't want to sabotage myself... I want my new habits to carry over. I WILL NOT go to Orlando and gain those 7 pounds back!!!! I have made a deal with myself. I'm not getting back on that scale until 1 month from today. I'm going to keep up with my exercise and new eating habits. I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO THIS!!! I can. I know I can. I HAVE to..... Why does it just have to be so stinkin' hard?? I guess if I knew that answer I'd be a kazillionaire, and none of us would be fat.......
