I haven't been motivated to blog about weight loss after my weigh in a week ago when I actually put on 2 pounds from the last weigh in (2 weeks before then). I knew I wasn't eating the right foods but I had joined the gym and was faithfully going 5 days a week and my portions were still small (or at least I thought they were) thus I definitely wasn't expecting a gain. I know that muscle weighs more than fat but at that point I was only doing cardio and no strength so I wasn't expecting muscle mass. There had been lots of weeks where I felt I could have eaten better but I still dropped a pound or 2 because I was eating less. I wasn't near my cycle and the gain was just too discouraging.
Anyway, I went for my weigh-in today and I felt good about it beforehand but I wasn't expecting to have lost an entire 4.75 pounds in one week, and thanksgiving week too! I have now lost 27 pounds since I started at the clinic.
The reality is this week as full of stress and some heartbreak due to guy drama and thus I lost my appetite; I found myself forcing food down my throat and since it was all tasteless in my mind I ate alot of cucumbers. I also forced myself to work out extra intensely at the gym in an attempt to clear my mind. This loss is actually the perfect morale booster.
