Completing 2 weeks of consistent workouts feels AMAZING. I really am seeing a difference in my arms and legs. I have yet to see anything in my tummy but I'm guessing that's where the fat is going to go last. =/

I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and got a bit discouraged. I have such a long way to go. It's frustrating. I think I am working hard and it's just depressing to think that I may not see results for a long time.

Woe is me.

I just have to take it one day at a time. This is going to be a true test of my patience. I hope this weight doesn't defeat me once again. I'm way too old and I've been like this for way too long now.

Something's gotta give.


  1. Urgh! I feel you, girl. I also have quite the odyssey ahead of me. lol When I start to think about how far I have to go I try to remember to distract myself and not focus on that. I try to focus on how well I am doing, how I ate right that day, what I accomplished. It helps.

    Most of the time. ;)

    Sometimes it gets to me and I (if you will forgive me for using an Oprahism) awfulize. And I either spiral a bit or pull up and move forward.

    Hang in there. Patience is rewarded. Not right away. But when it comes... Boy will it ever be worth it! :D

  2. Hang in there! Unfortunately, dieting is a marathon, not a sprint. And it isn't easy. But you CAN do it!

  3. OMG patience is my biggest downfall! ): I had lost about 15 pounds but didn't see ANY DIFFERENCE in my body AT ALL! and now.. i've gained 12 of it back.. soooo of course now I have to wait EVEN longer to see result.. & it's KILLIN' me!
    But TWO WEEKS straight of working out! THATS KILLER GIRL! keep it up!
