Just wanted to give a shout-out to every 3fatchickie who's discouraged or frustrated or not motivated to keep going on losing some weight!
For instance, I've been a member of a gym only since Mid-March, and I'd been lifting weights several times a week since then trying to help myself burn some more fat and thinking "when the **** am I going to see/feel any muscle in my biceps?"
I finally started seeing some muscle definition all this past week! You have no idea how great it feels!
It's a doggone pain in the @SS to do this week after week and not feel like you're getting anything in return (on or off the scale, as it's been my experience for the last month or so!).
You feel dead tired getting on the Stair Master to sweat for an hour or discouraged while waiting around to use a weight resistance machine or pair of dumbbells that someone else is currently using or feel mopey standing in front of a full-length mirror in the gym's locker room, thinking why am I doing this??? when you see no change in the amount of flab on your belly or saddlebags.
It ... DOES ... PAYOFF!!!
You just got to STICK TO IT... your eating lifestyle & workout routine. You'll see results, maybe not the ones you expect
but you'll see/feel/measure it!
If you don't, you won't see jack (any change) in your body. PERIOD.
Just.. KEEP... GOING!
Have a Great 4th of July weekend everybody!
