I've been doing so much school work these past three to four days. I'm exhausted. I don't think I've been this stressed out in a long time. I just need to keep at it for another month and a half, and then I'll be free. I cannot give up now.
I went to the gym today, and just couldn't resist weighing myself. I knew it was a bad idea because last week was a complete failure. I ate out almost every single day, and was pretty sure I gained a pound from the amount of food I consumed on Saturday alone. Whatever though...I'm only up a pound, which I don't really consider to be a gain (233).
Given my circumstances, I've been eating pretty healthy this week. It sucks that the scale isn't going anywhere, but again, I'm really trying hard not to use it as anything other than a general tool. There are much better ways to measure progress.
The weight loss blog paper is coming along---I'm about halfway done with it. I'll be sending out interview questions this weekend, so keep a look out for them if you expressed interest in helping out. For those of you who don't have an e-mail address listed on your blog, I hope you don't mind if I make a comment on one of your entries about the paper. I'm trying to think of a way to post some of the stuff pertaining to the project on this blog, but that is still in the works.
Guys, honestly, I'm kind of frustrated. I'm very happy with how far I've come in terms of losing weight, but this plateau is really starting to get on my nerves. I wish I was better at this; I wish I could drop even one pound a week consistently. The progress has slowed down tremendously, and it's much harder to shed the fat off now. I know how to think rationally about losing weight, but sometimes I just feel like blowing up.
I'm going to refrain from being corny here by saying something like "I can do this", but it would be nice to see some hardcore progress within the next few weeks.
