So today was my first week of weighing in again and showing my weight, publicly. I was excited/nervous this morning when I woke up because I have been waiting all week for this. And as I jumped on the scale all I could hope for was 5lbs. I ended up going from 279.2 to 275. So a total of 4.2 lbs lost. Definitely not as good as I expected it to be, but I’m trying to be positive about all this. Most people would think this a decent weight loss amount, but I KILLED it at the gym last week and worked out 6 days altogether! My nutrition was very good and I onlyyy managed to lose 4.2lbs. Now many things have gone through my head, here are some of my thoughts:
-Perhaps I need to seriously cut down on carbs, because I wasn’t too carb-conscious (but when I do, I have very little energy at the gym)
-Am I not eating enough calories? (I think I’m gonna set up an appt with a nutritionist and explain to he/she my workout regimen and caloric intake and see what the verdict is)
-Like Dr. Oz says, you get the best BANG for your buck when you workout in the morning. All my workouts have been in the evening.
-I realllllly need to start my twice-a-day workouts!
-I need to start weight-lifting, more muscle means more calories burned
-Maybe if I just had a good bowel movement before the weigh-in (just being real lol)
-Maybe my body really is changing because I used to lose weight a lot quicker 5 years ago… it’s cuz I’m gonna be the dread 25!
So as you can see, I do need a psychiatrist/shrink/witch doctor because these very thoughts and a few others have crossed my mind today. But, I suppose I’ll take the 4.2lbs and continue to move forward in the right direction.
My next mini-goal: Be in the 260’s by my 25th bday on 12/5. That’s 2 weeks from now. And I don’t care if it’s 269.999… as long as it’s in the 260’s, baby!
Here’s to being good on Thanksgiving weekend, because not even holidays are excuses anymore!
P.S. Any suggestions/input for what I might be doing wrong would be greatly appreciated. Thx!
P.P.S Kate, you’re STILL going downtownnnn! BOOM!shakalaka
