I logged everything yesterday and came in about 30 cals under my daily goal (for which www.myfitnesspal.com told me off), but this morning the scales showed no loss. I find this particularly hard. Yes, I weigh myself everyday, but I always have…and I have always lost after the first day.
I ate my oats and yoghurt and got to the gym. This is not a great experience for me, I go to a gym that is a wonderful mix of gym bunnies, serious athletes and fatties desperately trying to make a difference and no one cares, everyone is welcome. I feel horrible though, my thighs are rubbing together, my shorts are riding up, I only manage 30 minutes on the elliptical and 10 on the stationary bike before I leave. Of course I bump into a friend who is slim and chirpy and together, and that I guess is the crux of the problem. I know she would be surprised to find out that I compare myself to her and obviously come out the loser, because I know she doesn’t do it. I don’t hate myself, but I hate the way I look and even more hate that I am not doing anything effective about it.
