14 Day Diet Review

Well as I said before the I have the tendency to swing between 167-170 lbs. and this week was a great example of that. I dipped to as low as 167 lbs and now I am back to 170.

With only 3 MIAs at the gym in the last 14 days with 3 cheat days from diet --- the result is no result.

But that's ok. I don't expect a miracle overnight and I'm going to continue doing what I do and eventually the good ol' body will catch up.

I did got some compliments from fellow classmates when they saw me the first time since December and said that I looked different and appeared to have lost some.

I soaked into that and savor it like chocolate. It felt really good, even though the scale doesn't say I've lost any.

I made a promise to myself that this year will be the year where I'm kinder to myself.. nicer. I'm not going to deny or hide from compliments and finally acknowledge my worth and what I'm damn good at.

For years, I shy'ed from anything that puts me in the spotlight because I never want to appear self-centered or egotistic and attract attention. Frack that.

I need to realize that people are people and I can never please EVERYONE no matter what I do

The important lesson for this week is :

It's not about the scale or what life throws at you that determines your success, it's you.

The continued diligence to move forward is the key whether I lose some or gain some --- it'll all fall into place in the end

I just need to work harder and always remember why the heck I'm doing all of this.

I will get there.

  2. The scale is the last thing you should ever check. Muscle weights more than fat obviously. And although you may have not lost any 'weight,' you may have lost some fat and added some muscle, hence the scale evened out and you are getting compliments.

    If I were you, I would buy a scale that measures fat loss (although this aren't too accurate), or a body fat caliper (which is much better). Or trust your instict and look in the mirror.

    Good luck, & have fun losing weight! Another helpful tip is to put your treats away from view, and trust me, it helps. Or even better, don't even purchase them in the first place.

    Good luck again,
    Meeks!
