So, I'm a bit confused although I probably shouldn't be. I've been around this eating healthier, exercising more sort of bullshit for a long time so I really shouldn't be surprised that after a little over a week of tracking and really kicking ass on my workouts, I've basically lost zero weight. In fact, I actually gained. After the first few days, I dropped a pound. Then just as quickly that pound was back. I logged and was within my calorie range on 5/7 days (and I think I was still in an ok zone calorie-wise on the 2 days I didn't completely track because on those days I burned a shit-ton of calories.)
Anyhoo. There's that whole "it's a marathon, not a sprint" philosophy but honestly, I'd just like the scale to stop showing a number that makes me want to puke and for my jeans to not be so tight. I'd like to catch a side-glimpse of myself in the mirror and not want to scream. Is that really too much to ask?
Saw this on Sarah's blog yesterday and had to steal it because that's really how I feel. It seems no matter what I put in my mouth (or don't put in my mouth) and whether I work out for 1 hour or 2 hours the result is basically the same. The scale just keeps going up and my clothes just keep getting tighter.
