HYC Weekly round up

So here I am again - and I'm not sure what's going on. I'm sticking to my plan fine, but for some reason I'm just not feeling it this week. I've been losing weight, but it doesn't totally feel like it yet. Sure, my jeans, which I could barely slide on when I started this, let alone button, are actually starting to look baggy on me, but something in my mind just isn't working as far as this goes.

Does anyone else have this feeling sometimes? I feel like I'm just going through the motions - like I'm some kind of diet fraud or something. The scale continues to move in a vaguely downward motion, but part of me thinks that it's just that the scale is broken, and that my jeans have somehow stretched - that I'm just not really achieving what it seems like I'm achieving.

Maybe I'm just in an off mood these last few days - this weekend I was so thrilled with myself for reaching the 20 lbs lost mark, and the last few days I've been in denial that it's actually happening. That and I'm feeling a ton of stress from other areas of my life right now.

On a plus note, my parents arrive Thursday. It's going to create some diet issues for a month or so, but I'm also going to be able to get a ton of good dinner ideas from my mum, who is an awesome cook and who knows nutrition inside out. Plus, you know, my parents will be here - that makes everything a little better.

So if I can just hold out the next few days, maybe my mood will improve after that.

So there's my big HYC goal for this week - stick to it and hang in there!

I know how you feel and know itcan be really frustrating. For me I don't even feel like the pants are getting looser yet (I'm 9 pounds down). Anyway, just keep it up and I'm sure you will get over this little hump! You are doing awesome!
