(Please don’t mind the creepy basement but this was the best place for picture taking right now.) It has now been 2 weeks since my first weight loss post. Well this is going pretty darn slow! I am not a patient person by any means. I have noticed a few things the past few days that I am excited to share with you. I wish I could tell you that I have dropped 15 pounds and 7 inches but that is simply unrealistic and not possible! I actually have lost 0 lbs. I have noticed clothing fits a little differently and my muscles are starting to look like I have them again. I am going in the right direction even if it is at a snail’s pace! Here are some other changes I have noticed.
I am hungry! First thing in the morning, I want to eat. For as long as I can remember, I have avoided breakfast. Two weeks ago, I had to force food in the morning. Nothing usually sounds good until 9 or 10. Now, I want food!! And water!! All the water! I wake up and slam about 25 oz. first thing.
There are still days when I want to curl up on the couch and watch Sesame Street with D and not bother to workout. My legs have been a major motivation lately. They are starting to have definition again! I don’t want to lose that just as quickly as it came so I drag my butt off the couch and either walk to the nearest park and walk the track or throw in one of the many exercise videos that have been collecting dust for years. Also, I have opened my eyes to the world of YouTube!! There are SO many workout videos to choose from!! Anything you need, It is there! There is no excuse to not workout!
My stamina is up! I have been doing a similar workout most days. It is getting easier! That means I have to make it harder, right? Even with my simple walking, I have noticed a difference. I went from walking 20 minutes to 45!! I am totally exhausted when I am finished but I know I am working toward something more! I am also hoping to turn that waking into running.
Thank you to all the people who have shared their weigh loss journeys and goals! It is a hard thing to explain your imperfections and insecurities to someone else. At the same time it holds you accountable. That was a major motivator for writing this blog! My last doctor appointment was canceled, by them, not me! I have to call to reschedule still. Hopefully they will give me some insight into losing weight with PCOS! More to come soon!
