Down one. 1 little pound. So I've been a little annoyed and frustrated today. I guess I was expecting a bigger loss. Anything two & above and I would've been fine! I've eaten pretty well this week. I've exercised almost every day! Some days more than once!
I've had some negative thoughts today...about quitting...and I KNOW that's stupid. STUPID. Especially when I lost weight! It's not like I stayed the same or gained! Ha! I just want to keep my momentum going. As I've mentioned before, it's NOT easy! I guess I'm to a little point where I'm going to kick this thing into a higher gear.....or get lazy. I DO NOT WANT TO GET LAZY!! I AM in this for the LONG HAUL!
So, with all that out of my system, today I read a little bit about muscle and fat. Sooo many people say that muscle weighs more than fat. NOT TRUE. I love to bust people on that one! Muscle or fat....a pound is a pound! Muscle takes up less space than fat.
Maybe I didn't lose much this week because I've lost weight BUT gained muscle? I mean, I can really see it. I can definitely see it in my legs from the running. I'm wishing I'd paid closer attention to the body fat percentage this morning. I just focused on the weight. I have seen differences just about everywhere.....and THAT'S what I SHOULD be focusing on, right? I've noticed some changes in my clothes this week. That was encouraging... :)
So, this week's goal:
Stay focused on the changes instead of the numbers. I know the numbers are going to change..........I'm NOT giving up! :)
