Slimmer this Summer – Week 3 Update
-stayed within my 1400 calorie daily goal
-exercised Monday, Wednesday and Friday (1.3 miles M, 3.1 miles T & 2.2 miles F)
-did strength training on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (used my new exercise ball and LOVED it!)
-water intake was pretty good, but I'm going to try to do better this week
I'm down to 202.8 – I lost another whole pound. So excited!!! 29 pounds gone for good!
I have been struggling with a dilemma.
While I am excited about losing another pound, especially since last week I only dropped 0.2 pound, I think I'm starting to feel GREEDY!
Is this normal?
I don't know. Instead of the 1 pound weight loss, I want to see 2 and 3 pounds gone each week. I don't know why since my goal has always been to lose 1 pound a week. Maybe it's because I'm feeling really great and I want the outer me to feel like the inner me. Maybe it's because I see my friends looking great and I still feel fat. I just want to hurry up and lose the weight, but I know this method of “slower-is-better” is really the best way for me to keep the weight off. After all, I have been re-educating myself on what I can eat and how much. This has been truly rewarding and I cannot thank my new friend Kandace enough for telling me about the sparkpeople site. I have told as many friends and family about it as I could. My next goal is to help someone very dear to me. I cannot talk about it here, but maybe one day. Right now, I need to finish “fixing” me so I can be a better mentor to that someone.
So, for all of you who have lost weight, have you ever struggled with this greedy feeling? Is it a normal feeling? If not, what should I do differently to avoid feeling this way?
I welcome your candid comments.
Have a great week!
