Do you ever just feel fat?
So I kept telling myself I know I am not fat this is just my mind playing tricks on me and I waited until this morning to get on the scale. It has been a good week and a half to two weeks since I did this and to my surprise I was down two more pounds. I weight 125 now so there is no way I am fat.
I don't look fat in the mirror and I don't weigh too much so what is the deal. I got to thinking that maybe it was more the loose skin I have in my tummy that just feels odd. I did hold a large percentage of my weight in my stomach. So when I am standing or lying flat I look good when I sit or even slouch I can feel the rolls of skin and the fat that is taking longer to leave.
So I decided to use my Itworks wrap if nothing else it leaves my skin silky smooth but who knows maybe it will work a lot better now that I have lost a lot of the fat on my own. I am not going to get my hopes up that it is a miracle cure because they didn't do much good fro me 20 pounds ago other than make my skin feel nice. They softened and tightened my skin but they did not make me loose much in the way of inches like they claim.
I am not going to let myself fall into the trap of always feeling fat so I have to give myself some positive self talk. I work hard each day to make sure that I am not fat I eat healthy most days and I work out enough that one bad day won't kill me. I get an average of 10-14 hours a week of quality exercise in and all of my friends and family are giving me huge compliments and asking me what I am doing. So I am not going to go there I will get that flat tummy in time. As far as I am concerned as long as I stick to this training schedule and eat right it will come I just need to be patient and that is what the professionals are saying as well.
From what I have read people that carry almost all of their excess weight in their midsection are likely to have a hard time loosing it there. I have always struggled with this. I have lost over 40 pounds now and I swear the first 20 all came from my legs and arms...okay maybe the first 15.
I will tell you one thing that I can not stress enough building muscle is the key. Yes you need cardio but I truly believe that a highly toned body burns fat easily. It took me about a year to get the first 20 pounds off and just over 4 months to get the last twenty.I even look better than I did the last time I was thin. My legs and arms are truly strong.
Well enough of my open diary today if you are struggling with your weight I hope I can give you some encouragement. Let me know and I will try to help any way I can.
