Losing the Weight, Finding Myself: Week 6

Submitted by Bethany on Sun, 03/04/2018 - 16:43

Well after two weeks of the scale going down, this week it didn't budge.  I weighed in the exact same as last week - 258.6.  Whomp, whomp.  On the plus side, it's not a gain, yay!  On the down side, it should be fairly "easy" for me to lose weight right now.  I definitely should not be hitting a plateau after a total of seven pounds lost.  Blergh. 

But really, I know what my problem is.  I'm doing ok with food - I've definitely cut down on my portion sizes and how much I eat in one sitting and over the course of a day.  I get full easier now, which is great.  We are going through so much less food - the fridge stays full with leftovers longer, and we are grocery shopping less.  So on that side of things, I'm doing great!  Also I do feel like my clothes are fitting looser and better, and I'm seeing changes in my body even if they aren't showing up on the scale.  So all of that is fantastic!

My downfall?  EXERCISE.  More specifically, the lack of.  I know I've written about it before and everyone reading is probably like "just get up off your butt, dummy!"  And I mean, you aren't wrong.  I can talk all I want about being busy during the week but the truth of the matter is I don't make exercise a priority because I just don't wanna.  

But I gotta.  So I'm going to commit to exercising at least 3 times this week.  I know that's not much.  I know it's not what I should be doing to lose the weight I need to lose, but it something and for real, I just need to start somewhere.  

Hopefully next week I'll have a brighter report!
