Today was my weekly weigh in and I was REALLY hoping for a 2lb loss to take me to 5st/70lbs, and ever closer to Onederland. Imagine my disbelief, then anger, then held back tears when I realised I've only lost a half pound this week
I was so upset and angry with myself and started having the usual panic that it's all over, I'll never lose anymore weight, and it's all going to start coming back on. I even considered missing my gym workout today and having a major sulk.
But luckily some higher power made me go and I ended up taking my anger out on the treadmill. I'm doing the C25K running program at the moment and yesterday ran 8mins twice which is the longest I've run so far. Today I was angry, super angry, so I started running and just kept going. In the end I did 20mins non-stop
The last 3mins were very hard, but I was determined to finish and just kept saying, "scale/body, you're not going to beat me, I'm stronger and more stubborn than you".
I still feel really upset with the result on the scale, but I'm very proud of what I achieved in my run today and glad that I proved to myself that even if I can't get the scale to co-operate I can make progress on my fitness.
Here's hoping for a better weigh in next week or that poor treadmill is in for a serious pounding.
