Discouraged but Not Defeated ..
So while seeing a gain on the scale, especially this early in the game is very discouraging it is not the end. I refuse to give up. I have been running every night since Sunday and I feel great. I am getting better, running longer and burning more calories. I will do this - may take me longer than I want, but I WILL do it =) I hope you stick around to watch me, but I understand if you don't.
I am considering trying to eat 6 small meals a day and see how that goes. Right now I eat mainly 3 meals and possibly a snack or two thrown in depending on how many calories I have left. But I find myself starving and out of control at times when I go too long without eating. I really think spreading out smaller meals will help me. I don't ever want to be at that "out of control" point where I am standing at the fridge shoveling whatever I can find into my mouth and then feeling ill a half an hour later after it has all settled.
I have, however, finally given up soda! I am about 3 weeks now without a soda and I feel great about it. I really don't even want one. I've been drinking a lot of water and unsweetened tea w/sweet n low. It is nice not to have to worry about getting a soda everyday and I don't feel as bloated and blah as I did before. I really think it does make a difference, especially when your drinking 4 - 5 sodas a day.
Hope you are all doing well on your journeys - Have a great week!
