I’ve been working at my exercise routine/healthy eating plan for almost a month now. I’ve seen results, but not where I want them. I lost an inch in my hips, but my stomach hasn’t changed too much. I’m very confused, though. Some days my stomach looks like it’s getting flatter, and other days (such as today) it looks very bulgy at the bottom bit. I’m already very skinny naturally, plus I have a small frame, but I just have this blasted fat. It’s giving me a skewed perception of my body, making me not want to eat when I know I should. I still do eat, but I end up passing by some of my favourite foods.
Today I logged my food into SparkPeople for the first time in forever, and I noticed that protein is only making up 10% of my diet! I’m thinking that this may be my barrier. I think I should keep tracking and try getting all of my nutrients, and see what happens. Wish me luck- I want to have a flat stomach for summer, but sooner if possible!
