[Previous entry: "A Dubious Honor..."] [Next entry: "Illustration of the frustration of the design revisions, and why they are bad."] 02/27/2006: "Off the wagon and Frustrated..." listening to: An endless string of ads...AKA: The Pugs & Kelly Show.
feeling: A little tired, a little frustrated, but mostly good.

Okay. So, you all know how I have been struggling with my weight for my entire life. Well, since the third grade anyway. Lately I had started to make progress by eating well and hitting the gym 6 times a week. That's right. 6 Times A Week.

Well, lately I have fallen off the wagon, and it's the result of my frustration over the weight loss thing. You see, I am under 300lbs for the first time in a long time, but I hit that mark before christmas. I've been losing and gaining the same 8 pounds since christmas. Even when I was hitting the gym a lot, I still wasn't losing any more. So I haven't been going so much, and I am still popping up and down. It's nuts. I need to get under 285 so that I can get over this hump and be done with the 290s. It's really frustrating, and unlike some people who would say "Oh yeah? Well, I'll just work out harder, you stupid belly." I say something more like "Well shit. If it's not going to do any good, then…where the hell did I leave that meatball sub?"

I know it's a bad attitude to have, but that's how it is. I need to start hitting the gym again hard. Like, hard hard. Hard.

its cause you are building muscle. as long as you burn more calories in a week than you eat in a week, your body will burn its own stored fuel. instead of the weight, think about doing a caliper test every say, two weeks or so.....and do light to moderate cardio to get that slow burn.....
