This is a kind of strange post to add onto this forum. The past couple of weeks, I've been thrilled with the results... my pants get looser and looser each week and I'm gaining muscle in my legs, and I can definitely see less stomach rolls on my belly as well!
I couldn't weigh myself last week due to TOM, but I did earlier today... only three friggin' pounds in 2 weeks
I guess in most situations, I'd take it with a grain of salt and say "eh, at least you're losing and gaining muscle in the process compared to past weight loss attempts!" (Plus I'm not killing myself exercising as well compared to my first real serious attempt to lose weight over a year and a half ago, but I'm enjoying exercising instead
It's just... the scale read 203 pounds today. And based on how much my pants have gotten baggy in the past 2 weeks-- plus with my walking exercise & increasing my activity level with errands/house cleaning chores, drinking a lotta water/plain herbal tea, and my calorie counting, I was sure I'd be good for 4-5 lbs for 2 weeks.
I know people say enjoy ur look in the mirror/pant size loss and ignore the scale. It's just... 203 lbs! 4 dang pounds before I get to Onderland... which I was hoping I'd reach by New Year's.
Sigh. On one hand, I luv luv luv how I feel in those baggy-ier, and baggy-ier pants!
And I've gotten quite a lotta comments from people asking me in the last 2 weeks if I'd been losing weight since it's becoming obvious.
On the other hand... 4 lbs?! Aughhhh...... *tearing hair out off my head metaphorically*
Anyone else have a slow weight loss that drives them crazy? Solutions?
Me, I first take comfort that at least I am still losing weight... then I go rant on 3fatchicks-- and after that, I read a book or watch a movie rather than overeat on food for consolation.
