i worked out so hard for such a long period of time and got minimal results, that to be honest i was sorta hoping something would be wrong with me. that for some medical reason i wasn't able to lose the weight. because surely i can't be eating that much crap to result in a 10 pound weight loss over a 6 month period. well truth be told, i was eating that much crap. but that crap is goooood! it is something i will always have to manage.
the weekends are the hardest. my weekends are spent alone, my weekends are the times i allowed myself to go out to eat. i'm trying to find a good combination of moderation so that i don't go crazy. i'll find out on monday if it worked. i truly believe that it is my workouts that help to balance everything when i do find myself cheating.
it feels so good to see the number on the scale reflect my work. in addition to getting some recognition for my work. i've had someone different everyday this week tell me i look great. i have to say that it means a lot, especially from people at the gym. because they are the ones who see me there, all the time. they may not know me, but to have them tell me i look good and that they see a difference is such a great feeling. granted this isn't the first time that something like this has happened, but for me it feels like the first time because i can see the difference too. i can see the difference physically and on the scale!
let the journey continue!
