The next stepPosted: December 5, 2012
I didn’t lose any weight this week. This was my “every other week” that my body has been kicking off at least 2 pounds on. This has been going on pretty much from the time I started this thing.
I am torn.
On one hand I am grateful for the change. I love change. It means I get to re-evaluate what I am doing. I have the opportunity to make adjustments and learn more about my body. it is like a little nudge letting me know that I have to change something in order to continue in the right direction. Or my body is just re-adjusting and I should embrace this.
On the other hand. FUCKING DAMN IT. I want to see that scale move! DOWN! FASTER!
What makes it easier to stick with felling #1 is that I think the reason I haven’t lost is most likely because I have significantly stepped up my weight training. (holy pain, by the way…) I have measured myself just to check and I have already lost an inch in my waist in about a week. So, even though no weight has come off, I am smaller. And that means I am building muscle and that means it is going to cancel out any fat loss that shows up on the scale.
This is what I am telling myself.
Over and over and over and over….
Also, to help myself feel better, I tried on those “next size down” jeans that have been waiting in my closet. I had tried them on a few weeks ago and they were too tight.
Now they TOTALLY FIT! BITCHES! 😉
So, I am encouraged and excited to see what happens when my body re-regulates and uses this new muscle to help burn even more fat!
Look the hell out.
Shit is getting serious.
