Sometimes the moments we feel most lost are the ones in which we find ourselves

Keep on Swimming

I am about 3 weeks into my renewed commitment to getting healthy and losing weight. I am down about 9 pounds, which is about 3 pounds a week. I wanted 4, but I will take 3. I just need to keep it up. I have been working out more often, but no as much as I should. I do a body sculpt class on Mondays and a less formal one with some girls in my building on Fridays and Sundays. I need to up the cardio though....for sure.

In addition, I have only had one melt down. I stayed strong, but I was full of doubt and frustration and anger. Seriously. I hate feeling like I am working hard and not seeing results. But this comes from not looking at the big picture. 9 pounds in 3 weeks is progress. Could it be more? Sure. But it is progress and I need to be proud of myself and know that things are working.

So I just need to keep on swimming. Swim swim swimming.

Yay! Love the new format. And I, too, am having major frustration! I just read this after updating my own blog with a similar post. I'm working out and trying to eat well, but unlike you, I'm actually gaining weight. SO FRUSTRATING. I'm so happy for you being down 9 pounds! "Slow and steady wins the race." You can do it.
