Can someone "splain" this to me?
I have been a little more than frustrated with myself lately because I did not lose a thing during the month of July. I want to lose, I was working as hard as I was able- though I missed a week of my regular walking after my biopsy- but we did walk 1 mile a day a couple of the days instead of the regular 3- it was all I could do. I was back to myself today and we walked FOUR miles- yeah!!-- opps, back to my question.....
Anyhow, so I lost no weight on the scale, but when measuring I have lost an inch off my "muffin" top and 1/2 inch of my hips and 1/4 or 1/2 in a couple other places. Once I got past being depressed about the scale not moving, I realized something is happening or I would not have had the inches lost- right? I mean, did I lose some fat, but it is replaced with smaller muscle- or what- I don't get it? I was beating myself up for not staying on plan, but if I am getting smaller I must be doing something right- huh?
Can someone explain- casue my little brain is way too confused- the scale I understand- simple, strightforward, logical- why does weight loss not follow in a nice logical way- the way I like things??? :-) I'm on the way to onederland, but I feel like my train got de-railed and there is no repair team in sight!
