Enthusiasm

Friday, May 31, 2013

Since feeling down about hardly losing any weight things have changed.

It's been just over a month since I have been sticking to my new food plan and exercise and I can tell that my body is changing. The actual physical weight loss hasn't seemed to be that much but I realise I've been a bit obsessive about that.

It's just that we want to see results right? Life is tough when you are putting in a lot of effort but not seeing any results. However, that's where faith comes in and I managed not to give up. And just a week later, I can see good changes in my body. I feel lighter and slimmer and definitely more toned.

Also, I feel my body getting used to the new regime. I am less hungry as I am used to smaller portions and my taste is changing because I'm having less sugar. I crave exercise if I don't get it! And i'm nearly addicted to fruit! Ha ha! THat's a good thing....

So, it definitely pays to be persistent and think long term. Thanks to everyone for your encouragement.

    I admire you for sticking with your program even when the scale wasn't giving you positive reinforcement. How wonderful that you are noticing other positive changes in your body and receiving positive reinforcement to continue your good work!

    I really like your blog. Being here in SP, where we try hard to do what's good for our bodies - eat better, exercise, better sleep, etc. - we want to see the scale move. But the changes you are describing are very powerful - craving exercising, little sugar, more fruit (and loving it). Would you have envision that for yourself when you first started? I truly appreciate you sharing since it gives me hope, for myself. Thanks. emoticon
