A bit disappointed

A week of watching what I am eating and the scale hardly budged.  That is odd for me.  Having been a yoyo dieter for so long, I expected the dramatic drop in calories to produce a pretty hefty weight loss the first week.  I am not sure what happened that it didnt.  I havent been exercising much because my knee is sore.  But I am going to have to find something that does irritate my knee.  And actually, when I ran last week that didnt seem to bother it.  So I may do one of the preset workouts on the treadmill until it gets warmer out.  Those preset workouts always seem to make me sweat!  I am not going to give up.  I dont like how my body feels or how it looks right now.  And its amazing how much it affects my self esteem.  Even though I may not have lost much last week I felt better about myself for trying.

The warmer weather will be getting here soon.  I dont want to feel as self conscious as I do now.  I want to fit in my size 12's that are in the tote under the bed waiting for me.  So I better get to it!!!  I guess its time to listen to the hubs who is forever telling me that exercise is the key.

Ok so I absolutely love this. Not because you had a hard time or that you didn't lose for a week but you kept going. That is one of the hardest things to keep doing!! Congrats to you. A couple of years ago I went on my weight loss journey lost 65 lbs. I have gained like 10 lbs back but the key is knowing it is a lifestyle and continuing to strive to do better each day, but also enjoying life while you are at it!! Kudos to you!!

I know it's frustrating, but the weight will come off. And you said yourself that you already felt better.

Dieting and weight loss can be so random...but you know that if you just keep up with it, you'll lose. Hang in there!
