A Perfect Version of Myself

Losing Weight is Hard

The Illusion of Progress January 12, 2009

An update on the excercise – I’ve been walking on the treadmill at 1.9 (for what that is worth, I’m sure every treadmill is different) for 10 minutes every morning and it’s actually getting easier.  I know I’ve only been doing it for a week, but I noticed that the first time I did it, I was a bit sweaty….this morning, there was no sweat.  I’m set to add five minutes to this on Wednesday, so this is probably a good sign.  I guess it means that I’m ready to do more?  I know less about fitness than I do about earthworms (translation: not much) so this is just a guess, but one that feels rights.  If it’s too much, I can always pull it back.

Weigh in is tomorrow and I’m nervous.  I followed the eating plan to the letter, but I did last week too and I gained weight.  I’m really hoping I don’t go up two weeks in a row because it will be very hard to stay motivated. 

ALTHOUGH!  I noticed that carrying my laundry up and down the stairs isn’t the horribleness it used to be.  AND!  I went to return some pyjama pants that were give to me at Christmas (they were too big – unlike most women I’m smaller on the bottom then I am on the top) and I went down a size!  I bought the smaller size thinking that there was no sense in buying clothes in my current size since I am committed to having a different life, and then when I got home I tried them on for fun and THEY FIT!!!  They’re a bit tighter than I normally wear pj’s (read: falling off), but they’re plenty comfortable!  That had me dancing around my room like an idiot!

With all these positives lately, I feel like tomorrow is going to be good!  I’ll let you know how it goes.

    The treadmill does get easier. Wish the elliptical did.

    Thanks! WordPress has eaten my comments on my old blog before. Le sigh.
