I have been putting a heap of effort into my exercise regime, combined with strictly tracking my eating. And I am going nowhere fast!
These stalls drive me bonkers. How can I be burning 400 calories at the gym each morning, walking a few km a day, eating 1200 calories a day, and have the scale just laugh at me?! BLARG!
It is especially frustrating since I really want to be around 180lbs before my skin removal surgery and I am sitting at 192 and holding. My surgery is exactly two months from today!
While the scale frustrates the shit out of me, my progress at the gym is making me mighty happy! Today in my ab challenge workout I was able to do 60 situps with a 4lb medicine ball, 75 crunches, 30 leg lifts, and a 50 sec plank. I never thought I could even do 10 situps in a row and now I am working my way up to 120. Using the rowing machine I can now cover 2km in nearly 10 minutes. Each time I use the rower I am determined to get my 2km in in under 10 minutes. Almost there! I sweat buckets using a couple of the torture devices for 30 minutes there every morning. The bow flex step climber and I are best buddies now.
So I know I am getting healthier, but the results just aren't on the scale.
They aren't in the measurements much either. My entire body seems to just be holding steady! But going back to when I was 320lbs, there is a lot of change!
My hips used to measure 64". And now they are 47"! I wonder what that measurement will look like after surgery?
So I will just keep on plodding along and hope to see some results soon!
