Once again time flew by and I haven’t written in here for a while. Apologies again to my maybe two readers (ha ha).
For the past month+ I’ve been trying very hard to improve my health and lose weight. I began an aquatic whole-body conditioning class that meets twice a week (I wrote about this once before but deleted my post in embarrassment because my instructor found this blog and told me about it at class one week. I’ll probably repost it sometime soon once I stop acting like a baby). I also started this “Colorful Choices” program through work that helps a person eat more fruits and vegetables, as well as giving up all soda and drinking a lot of water. I’ve been doing pretty well with these things, yet I’m growing more and more frustrated because I’m not seeing ANY results – not pounds-wise or in clothing fit. What is the DEAL? Do I have to run miles each day and starve myself to lose even a tiny bit of weight? I’m so unbelievably sick of this weird weight gain (from the last 5 years) that never goes away despite my efforts. I just want to be my “normal” self, 25-30 lbs lighter, which isn’t even “skinny.” I’m working hard yet the flab is hanging around (literally).
