My Actifit Report Card: March 11 2020

in Actifit8 months ago

Today was a pretty interesting day for me. Because I had a doctor's appointment in the morning I was able to sleep in for three hours.

I got up at seven instead of four and did my two mile walking routine. Then I got cleaned up and headed to the doctor.

I haven't weighed myself since I started working out. I decided I would wait until this appointment to see what my new weight was. Last time I went to the doctor I was around 256 Lbs.

Due to all the hard work I have been putting in, I expected to be down to maybe 245, or 240 of I was lucky. Imagine my shocked when I weighed myself and it read 260.8! All I could do was laugh. I was blown away by that number.

Of course the nurse had to point out that muscle weighs more than fat. I never realized how much that statement makes you want to throat punch the person saying it until I was on the receiving end of it.

It's not okay to say it, as true as it might be, it just doesn't help. If anything it pisses you off more. I know this is a crossroads moment for me. Do I continue working out knowing it is potentially futile? Or do I press on with the sliver of hope that I am building muscle and eventually it will start burning fat?

The good news is the doctor told me I am still in remission from my cancer so I guess that is the silver lining.

I can see how you would be disappointed with the weight gain after all that effort. I would say don't give up. Keeping active has multiple benefits besides weight loss including strengthening the heart and boosting your immune system. Beating cancer shows there is always hope of better times.

Stay strong!

Thanks, I appreciate it. I did read last night that you retain a lot of water after you work out, so my two mile walk before I headed into my appointment might have worked against me.
