I will readily admit that I blew off the first two weeks of the month. However, I actually got up 9 days the last two weeks at 4:45 and went to the gym. It has actually gotten relatively easy to make myself get up. Now, if I could just get everything else in line....
It is frustrating to do a lot of work (or what feels like a lot of work) and see no result. This is why people quit. Why should I keep depriving myself of an extra hour and a half of sleep when nothing is even happening? These are the thoughts that cycled through my head this morning when I got on the scale.
I know people will talk about inches and the way clothes fit, but that hasn't changed either. I also know people will say you can't expect to see changes overnight. But, when you are in a low place already, not seeing any change is the reason you fail. (I speak for myself only, obviously.) If I don't see a change, I make a bad choice. One bad choice leads to another, which leads to another, which leads to no weight loss or even weight gain.
I am jealous of those people who can work out 3 times a week, cut out one coke a day and then Poof, 10 pounds melt away. I think I am one of those unfortunate people that will have to work out 5-7 times a week, cut out all soda, and count calories just to see any results at all. I hate that.
I am not asking for the easy way out. I will go to the gym. I will give up cokes (tomorrow I promise!). I will use a child's plate to help with portion size. All I am asking for in return is that by the end of November to see some change on the scale!
