I have been feeling so discouraged lately. The scale aint moving ya’ll! I fluctuate between 179 and 180, and I’m beginning to question my motivation. I feel like it’s way too early in the game to hit a plateau, but I’m no expert. I’ve been busting my ass with working out and trying to eat well. I know I said I was going to take the slow and steady approach, but damn! This is the most active I’ve been in about 6 years. I’ve been taking pictures of myself to try and chart my progress, and I swear my big ass looks the same as when I started this venture in April. I even e-mailed Myia from work yesterday, and asked, WTF? She told me the camera adds 10 pounds. Ten pounds! Shit! So I basically need to lose 20 pounds to look halfway decent in a picture. Where is the ephedra when I need it most? Just kidding! Seriously though, I took epehdra about 8 years ago when it was the latest diet craze, and I won’t lie to ya’ll-I lost an insane amount of weight. I looked great, I felt great, and then BAM! It was banned. It all went down hill from there. My workouts weren’t as fueled. I became listless from the withdrawal, and I gave up. I was an addict and didn’t even know it.
I’m trying to do the right thing-eating right, exercising. But I’m not feeling very inspired right now. I’m still pushing on, but I need some encouragement from my sisters. Can a sista get some love right now?
