Weighed myself this morning. Still 209. What gives? I was at 221 like forEVER and then whoosh! Twelve pounds come off and now I'm stuck at 209. Ugh.
I know the weight loss is much slower now that the initial huge loss is over, but hey, c'mon now. I want MORE! I have noticed that my body is changing, though. I'm feeling smaller in places like my waist and my hips. I think my face is thinning out a bit more, too. I have to conclude that since the weight is not coming off that the fat from those thinning out places must be going somewhere so I'm guessing it's my ass.
I've been sitting on my ass a lot these days. Sometimes it hurts from sitting so much and I have to get up and move around. It only takes a couple of hours of sitting to get to that point, but still. I've been doing a lot of sitting down activities: watching t.v., knitting, crafting, working. I need to get my butt off the chairs and couches more often. Last night while crafting, I stopped and got on my recumbent bike and rode for 15 minutes. Nothing strenuous. Only rode at 10mph. Again, SITTING, but at least my circulatory system was getting a workout, right?
Speaking of working out, I need to get on that right away. I'm noticing my body is getting squishy. Well, my torso is getting squishy. I now have muffin-tops when I wear my pants. Not a good look at ALL. Oh and let's talk about the girls. They are looking mighty sad these days. Extreme weight loss will do that to them. They are sad sacks pointing south. I know, maybe TMI, but I have to remind myself of these things. It may be helpful someday. Oh, the girls look great in my bras. You gotta have a good bra! But out of the bra, well, let's just say, um, well, let's not just say anything. Poor little flat bags. There, I said it.
So, I'm going to start going to the gym. No sense in having a membership if you don't use it, right? Right. I'll use the bike and trampoline at home for cardio and go to the gym for toning. That will get those muscles built up and start the fat burning again. That's what I'm hoping for anyways.
All in all, my life is good these days. I know I've complained a lot these past few months, but things are turning around. I'm feeling better about myself. Maybe I just go through the winter blues and don't realize it. That being said, I'm headed off to tackle the to-do list on my desk at work. Git 'er done!!
