I've been a bit harsh with myself in recent weeks about "only" losing a pound or two per week.
Someone on SP suggested I look up a photo of
what that really represents so I did.
I've also done some more thinking about it and realized that, while I'm
losing fat, I'm also gaining muscle.
Given that my clothes are fitting differently and it's getting easier to
move, I need to remember that when I "only" lose a pound or two, I've
probably really traded fat for muscle that week.
I also have to remember that I have made AMAZING progress so far! Since
the beginning of the year, I've lost over 82lbs! That's no small feat!
Never giving up. Never going backwards. Always moving forward. That's
Weeks will come and go. The scale will move or it won't, but that
ultimately doesn't determine the outcome.
I have to keep it in perspective and remember that even a pound -- that
"only" pound -- is still progress!
Disclaimer: I know 1-2lbs per week is normal, but I also know that being
over 350lbs, I typically average more like 3-4lbs.
