I wanted to "defy the experts" by losing weight over the Holidays. Well, I did it, but just barely. I've lost a quarter pound since Thanksgiving. I worked SO HARD for that quarter pound too!!! ;)
Just when I started making progress, a party or my period would hit the reset button. Why is it so EASY to gain fat and so hard to lose it!?! ARGH!
Okay, that wasn't just a whiny rhetorical question, I actually know why! :)
That's just how our bodies are built! Fat is the energy our bodies store in case of famine. Our bodies create fat whenever we have access to an ample amount of calories. All excess calories are then converted to fat for later use.
Thing is.. we don't really encounter famine, and getting our butts to move to burn off the extra "stored energy" is really hard to do! Speaking of which, my butt needs to get on the exercise bike and sweat away another cookie or two! ;)
I better get to it!
