Every day I weigh myself and every day I expect to weigh less... like a significant amount less. The last 3-4 days I've been hovering around the same number and it's been making me feel discouraged. I've been logging everything I eat into MyFitnessPal and I've been staying under my goal (minus 1 day- oops!) I've been making sure I have at least a 1600 cal deficit ... so why is it not working?! I think it's this type of impatience that has caused me to fail in the past. I'd see the work I was putting in but not see the movement on the scale fast enough and just quit. What I need to do is take a step back and understand that I'm making good choices and everything will fall into place... seriously, do I really expect the scale to drop a pound or two every day in the second week? ..especially after losing over 8 pounds last week... lets get real, probably not going to happen.
Along with my changes in how I eat, I need to start working out. I really haven't done much in that area, yet. Yesterday, I went for a walk with my friend Kylee and it was very nice. As much as I'd hate to admit this... I haven't been on a walk in a long time. I haven't done anything active in a long time! Not to make excuses... but man, I have been BUSY!! I just text Kylee to see if she wants to walk again today and since I have the PiYo DVD's... I really want to start those! I can think of 100 things I should be doing... *like the dishes and laundry*! ...but I guess those things aren't going anywhere- HA!
Yesterday, I took pics of myself in the scrub top that is the next size smaller... it's actually two sizes smaller but they don't have the size in between. The scrub tops I wear now were bought just for me when I was pregnant with the twins... and yep, I still wear them! I wear scrubs laundered by the facility because I go to surgery. These are the little things that I can't wait to change. I want to be able to fit into smaller scrubs at work. I should have taken pics of my pants too because I have to wear elastic waist pants that taper at the ankle... oh yeah, sexy. All the drawstring or half drawstring/half elastic pants that kinda flare at the ankle are all smaller sizes and don't fit me. So, instead I'm stuck in a huge top (that basically fits- ugh) with a weird v neckline that shows my boobs off half the time and elastic taper crazy pants.
