Kelsa I like to walk my dog too. but when I do I don't see the bigger loss.???? connection maybe/maybe not. I only lost .5 lb today and yesterday, but I have been on many diet plan s and none give me even that result. What you gained is realy down nothing more than some water if you think about it. Don't give up/in. Take it one hour/or day at a time...Remember we are ALL going through emotions of high and low, focus on the high and be dammed the low. I am NOT cheating pay-off down 14.5 lbs in 9 days...1 size jeans. I am only going to walk my dog every other day and a shorter walk. It is hard, but being over weight is harder, harder in gen. and on heart knees etc. I think about what I lost and to pick that up 14.5 lbs and carry in a back pack all day would realy make me tired, just think what 30 would do. Here I am packing 78 lbs more than I should, now that is realy hard, I am looking for easier days, hang in there and be strong.
Have you gone the chat room? You go to top of this page, click on home, then chat....Might help instead of cheating have a chat w/someone who feels the same, and get through the moments togeter.
I like to work out, but after reading my book it says that a long run could do a reverse effect and actually have me "gain" weight, so I really don't know how much is too much, or too little. I would love to wake up tomorrow and loose 2 lbs..but that is all wishful thinking. I had my first spell of almost cheating today, after I saw the scale I was like "what? Well shoot, if I have gained I might as well just eat whatever I want today"...but. I held strong. This is the most strict diet I have ever been on, and be deprived of things is really discouraging, but I need to keep reminding myself to look at the "bigger picture" which is a smaller me. As you can tell, I'm a little down today..so any words of wisdom would be helpful :-)[/QUOTE]
