Can someone explain to me why if I have been exercising consistently for the last 2.5 weeks that I have not lost an ounce (unless you count when I let my heals hang a little off the edge of the scale)? In fact, when I weighed myself this morning, the scale looked like it was mocking me and inching a smidgen higher. Just a smidgen. Just enough to say, “Ha ha, you hate exercise and it’s not even helping you!”.
I wrote this enthusiastic, got get ’em post about 10 months ago. And I promised I’d be back with an update. Oops, sorry. Remember, this lady:

I must have been having a good math day then. What I would say right now, is that I want to lose 15 lbs. I’m going to keep exercising. I know in my intellectual brain that the reason that I’m not losing weight is that my diet is HORRENDOUS right now. But in my brain that likes to buy things from infomercials, I think that there must be some trick to eating just about the worst things you can put into your body and still lose weight. That is simply going to take some time to reconcile.
In the meantime, if anyone out there is like, an exercise physiologist or something, please tell me if this true:
And here’s a pin that fits the mood perfectly:
