I am enjoying the changes in my mood and body

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

I have been focusing on weight loss since I joined SP. I do the food tracker and plus write down every bit that goes into my mouth. I have been entering my cardio and strength training. Being a goal and task type of person, I am always looking for perfection, comparing myself to others. I go to the gym 5 days a week, taking a spin class, zumba class, weight training and what ever class for that morning. I also have been doing 45 minutes on the elliptical or treadmill (depending on how sore the legs are)

Today, a friend in the class said she had noticed how much I have lost. I looked at her with a puzzled face and said that I haven't lost much. She said oh, yes you have, you have firmed up. I thanked her with a nice big smile and said she made my day.

Now that I'm home and have logged in, I realized that I feel good and energized. I have more body strength and mobility than only a few months ago. I am also a happier person.

So I might not have lost the weight that I had planned for but I sure have gained something more. I know the weight will come off, but the positive attitude and feeling of self worth is more important to me right now.

    it sounds like your doing a great job! Just remember that muscle weighs more in fat.. Just because the scale is showing no to very little weight loss but yet your looking thinner to others is because you are gain the muscle that you need. Keep up the good work! emoticon
