Disapointing end to week 7

So this was not a great week. I'll admit I was getting a bit cocky. I was feeling good. I was thinking I'm finally starting to look better. I had several people tell me this week that they thought I looked like I had lost weight. That made me feel good. But I think the vanity came back to bite me in the ass.

I got on the scale this morning, and to my shock, I had not lost any weight. I was really looking forward to being in the 2-teens. I had been good about what I was eating, I was swimming at night and all for a big fat zero in weight change. I guess this is about the time when my body will get used to what I have been doing and has found out how to manage with my calorie in take and the amount that I'm burning with my work outs. I guess this is the next hurdle I have to get over. I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but this one hurt.

I guess there's not much else to say but to get back out there, work hard, eat smarter and push through to the 2-teens. I'll let you know how it goes.

  1. Don't forget to take into account muscle weight. Some of the weight gain may be newly developed muscle from your workout. I always need to keep that in mind when I am working out and looking at the scale. If people are commenting that you look like you are losing weight, it's probably a good bet that you are losing fat, but gaining muscle. :)

    Keep up the good work!
