Well I went to Aquafit this morning, and it was fun. Full of old ladies, of course, but I did it in the deep water and it definitely felt like a solid workout. It was a little painful to get up for it this morning, so I'm hoping the friend I have plans with tomorrow night is ok to hang a bit later, so I can do the beginner Hip Hop class instead of waking up early for the Aquafit.
Amy's entry about how we are now working so hard - making these super solid changes and choices in our lives, and it just feels like we should be skinny already- really really resonated with me. It sucks... What still gets to me, although I'm feeling much better than I did on Saturday is... I feel like I've been at this a few months now, I eat healthy, now I'm working out almost every day - but to a stranger, I'm still a fat girl. That sucks, and there's nothing I can do about it but keep going.
So I know I shouldn't weigh myself a million times a week like I do, but I've started only recording my weight Tuesday mornings... But when I was on the scale today, it was at 236.6... .4lbs ahead of my 3 a week goal. But then I checked after lunch and it was back up. Whatever it's at tomorrow when I get up is the weight I'll be working from, but I don't get how come it changes so much so quickly!! Regardless, I feel like I'm finally getting away from the 240 plateau that I held on to for so long. Amy was also so right that we get so happy to reach a certain goal - getting to 240 for me was so huge, and the moment I met it, I was on to the next step. So for now, I'm gonna think of how well I am doing, being oh so comfortably back on track.
