One of the biggest frustrations you can encounter during a weight loss journey is stepping onto the scale and seeing it show little to no progress versus the previous week despite you doing everything by the book: eating the appropriate type and quantity of foods, eating no more than 20gr of carbs after 3pm, exercising more than 330min per week and doing the impossible: ignoring all the lollies, cookies and chocolates in the office’s kitchen (which when you work at Cadbury, it’s like a real Mission Impossible).
I understand that the number on the scale is not the complete picture. I understand that progress can be dressed up in different costumes like the definition of your face or seeing your collar bones showing up a little bit more, or your pants feeling looser and not because you haven’t washed them in two weeks, but because your butt is slightly less big than the week before. I do know all that. But, knowing it doesn’t help the feeling that I’m still doing something wrong, and that losing 10kg in 9 wks is not going to happen.
I know my body is adjusting, and if I keep doing what I’ve been doing for the last three weeks, I will see the results (eventually), but I just wish that making the number go down would be as easy as when it goes up.
