The scale finally moved!

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

I set my goals to spend at least 2 hours a day on my exercise. Stretching, dancing and filling out my physical food diary count and for a month I had been doing it. I was at the gym for around an hour 5 days a week during the last month burning 400-700 calories each visit and I was drinking my water and not overeating but the scale did not budge!
How frustrating that despite no increase in my eating and a definate increase in my activity level the scale simply would not move. Occasionally it went up a pound or two and then down but I started at 244 pounds and a month later still 244 pounds! "AGHHHH" I screamed!
Then finally, I boiled some eggs and maticulously started tracking my food and focusing on getting my 60g of protein a day. My carbohydrate intake dropped on its own and finally the scale dropped down to 237.
Next benchmark... 230lbs.

    It is of course impotant to take in tbe full picture of your health including measurements, blood pressure, how your body feels etc... that is why. I consider scale movement a benchmark rather than a goal.

    good, but don't put so much on the scale moving. take body measurements and track those too. you may be surprised.
