I dislike this goal very much….
LOL it’s so hard! I fight so hard for it and I’ve barely budged again, maybe .2 of a pound.
and I KNOW it doesn’t really mean much, as muslce weighs more than fat, and I’m VERY active, and I love working out, and I do weights 3x a week and squash so often, and more cardio and yoga…
but I’m so tired of looking at 196 on the scale. every day. for over 2 months now. what’s wrong?
My biggest challenge with losing weight is that I did not track what I ate. I would eat sensibly, but I fear that part of my problem was overeating, and throughout the day, comsuming too many calories.
I decided after a LONG consideration (months) to purchase the Fitday program. I’ve had it for almost a week and I have noticed significant difference in my eating habits. Now, everything I eat in a day is displayed on the screen and I’m reminded of all the calories I have taken in.
and in this week, I’m already down almost 2 pounds. I’m quite active, so I’m not that surprised, but it’s about being motivated to track things out.
I am currently in at 10.4 pounds over my target goal.
Considering I do a lot of cardio (squash mostly) and yoga, my new objective is to build weight training into my weekly routine. I’ve focused on weights before, but I think the key to this is to build one thing at a time into your schedule. Trying things, seeing what works at what times, etc.
The one thing with weights is that I injured my knee a few months back while doing weight training, so I’m approaching the lower body workouts with much more caution, and I’m scared to push myself too hard, as I still feel something not right with me knee.
Taking it one step at a time…
I have gained 5 pounds from what I was trying to lose, so I’m actually 10 pounds off my goal weight now.
I’m so incredibly frustrated.
... muscle weighs more than fat. I know I built up some wicked muscle in my quads today, which means my weigh-in tomorrow is gonna be heavier than it should be, I assume.
Does this mean discouragement?
Just a tad bit of frustration.
AND! This goal only counts when the 5 pounds comes off and stays off for the duration of at LEAST 10 days.
That is when I will mark this as complete!
I dislike how muscle weighs more than fat
It makes me feel heavy
my scale can’t decide what weght I am at. Strange.
no weigh in though… tomorrow morning I will.
Time to get back into routine!
