Emotions Exercise Goals Gym Healthy Eating Weigh-In

I Just Rode The Bike, But…

I’m a little worried, actually very worried, that I won’t see good results on the scale next week. Admittedly, I’m still freaked out by the fact that I stayed the same weight last week.

I just rode my exercise bike for 42 minutes using higher resistance. I’m going to continue eating well and be sure to eat a little more than I did last week. And I guess all I can do is wait and see the results. I realized, this morning, that there might be another reason I didn’t show a loss. Let’s just say I feel yucky today.

Either way, I won’t give up. But I do hope to retain the intense excitement I’ve had in the last few months. It’s so much fun to see the losses in black and white that I have to remind myself, on days like today, that it’s worth it even on the days that nothing incredible happens.

It’s been almost 30 days since my inches were measured so I’ll be doing that again next week. I’d love to know that I lost a few more inches too.

I just want to feel excited again or even just certain that what I’m doing will eventually yield the results I want to see. Wish me luck hitting the 25 pound mark next week.

    Something else to think about…I noticed this last time I lost weight, and I really think it's true.

    Sometimes you lose and burn body fat when you first start going and the pounds drop…then there will be those weeks that you're still burning body fat, but you have started to build lean muscle as well, which weighs more than fat.

    So sometimes your body is still changing in size and appearance, but you won't notice a change on the scale.

    Maybe you could start tracking measurements, so you can still see your progress when the scale doesn't always reflect how awesome you are truly doing?

    That's great advice, X. I am due to be measured again Wednesday. I lost 10 inches after the first 30 days I was measured so I'm hoping to see positive results again this week. 🙂
