I've been busting my butt since the beginning of the year trying to lose this extra 20 I'm carrying around. I fully understand that muscle weighs more than fat so initially as I'm starting to tone up I may not see the actual weight loss even if I can feel the difference in the way my clothes fee. I get it. But 5 pounds in 6 weeks just doesn't seem worth it.
I'm actually enjoying my workouts on most days. It gives me time to focus on me and that feels good. But some days I would just like to eat whatever I want, skip the work out and know that the scale wasn't going to go up 3 pounds the following day.
I guess if it were baby pounds I was trying to get rid of it may motivate me more. I actually found pregnancy, or rather delivery, to be the easiest quick weight loss plan I've ever achieved. In both my pregnancies I gained little weight (12 and 10 pounds) and found myself 25 pounds lighter just a week after delivery. That means I lost the baby weight and then some. So my question is....
Anyone want a 42 year old to carry a baby for them? I'm sort of kidding.
