First Week! WooHoo!

Sunday, October 07, 2012

Well, I made it through the first week! And I pretty happy!

My motivation level is very high. I do struggle every night with the "evil munchies" emoticon But I know I will beat them!

I did really well with the exercising the first couple of days, but then it started hurting my old ankle injury, all the resulting tendonitis, and the tumor I have in my calf (same leg), sooo I had to take it easy for a couple of days.

Today my leg was feeling better so I went for another walk. It hurt, but not terrible because I went slower than last time. Even though it's slow exercise, it is something. emoticon

Sooo, this first week I managed to loose 7 pounds! I am sooooo happy with that! emoticon

I tend to get impatient with slow weight loss, but I didn't get to this weight in one day and I'm darn sure not gonna get this weight off in one day. emoticon

I know I wont always be able to get the exercise in that I want to, but I just have to not beat myself up for it. I have to come to terms with the fact that I have a bad leg, and the other one isn't 100% either. So as much as I love going for walks and getting excercise, I am promising myself not to get discouraged. I plan on trying to get some upper body aerobic and strength excercises in. Hopefully, as the weight comes off it will get a little easier to go for walks, but even if it doesn't, I will stay positive. emoticon

Anyway, I really hope to keep up the weight loss for this coming week!

    Wooo how exciting! Lol, being okay with a slow weigh loss was something I had to come to terms with too. I get so impatient and it winds up ruining my diet and my motivation. For some reason, that old saying "Rome wasn't built in a day" comes to mind. Hah, how cheesy am I? xD

    Anyways, great job! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations! You are doing excellent! There is no reason to beat your self up--any move forward is success, and 7 pounds is a huge success :D. So no beating your self up because you have trouble with exercising--you are still exercising. Walking some is better than not walking at all. Besides, a little walking for you may be like a marathon for someone else. Pat yourself on the back--you are doing awesome! Be proud!
