ok ok so I didn't cut off my leg. I was this close [ ] to doing it. But what can I say...I'm kinda attached to it! (bad jokes = the only jokes I can tell) Thanks to every one who gave me so much encouragement to keep going and not chop off my leg. Also hello new followers... 71... nice number!
Yes, the pound gain is discouraging but as everyone keeps saying forget about the number on the scale and I am getting healthier. My belly is shrinking. I can do alot more stuff because I lost that little bit of weight. There are too many benefits to give up now and its about long term health not short term numbers. Saying that I will be mightily pissed off next week if nothing shifts on the damn scale. I think it just sucks that for the first time in ages I am finally working my socks off to get this weight off and it feels like nothing is happening and then doing considerably less one week and losing alot. FRUSTRATING. ok no more whining about it. The gain is in the past. Moving onwards....
Oh my days. I started the couch to 5k programme yesterday. OH MY FRICKIN' GOD. Seriously harder than I anticipated. I have never done anything that made me feel so alive but like I am dying at the same time, ever. It was intense. It really showed how unfit I was. I sweated like there was no tomorrow, almost coughed up a long and fell down a small hole in which the dog is digging trying to escape the garden. Before I began my thighs were still burning from the lunges I did the day before but I wanted to do the c25k thing if it killed me. I am so proud I pushed through the burn. I am doing it with Mary and Fat Lazy Guy and I think there are a few others now too... some people have already started it like fat[free]me. KUDOS.
If doing this programme doesn't make me drop some poundage then I don't know what will.
Over and out.
