So here's the numbers:
January 7: 260.4
March 12: 245.8
So that's 14.6 pounds in a little over two months. That's about 1.6 pounds a week, which is right on track with healthy weight loss of 0.5 to 2 pounds a week.
I want it to be more. I want the weight to fall off as easily as I put it on (lol yeah right), and I want people to notice that I've lost weight and tell me I look good.
But that's not what's happening.
I'm experiencing what is known as "the paper towel effect" when it comes to weight loss.
I'm not going to quit what I'm doing.
I love the exercises I've started doing. Zumba is fun as hell, weight lifting makes me feel like a badass, and bellydancing is a blast. I feel sexy and I figure, hey, I have these hips and boobs, might as well use 'em.
Lastly, I'm going to leave you with this... I saw this the other day and it made me cry. Maybe it will inspire you too. If you have a few minutes and especially if you are feeling discouraged, give it a watch.
