The Most Important Number
I don't care what anyone says.
The number on the scale IS important.
It's what we all go by to measure our weight loss success or failure.
Yeah, you shouldn't let the number on a scale define you, you should want to be lean and muscular, etc...
But honestly I could give two unicorn farts about muscle.
That is unheard of in the weight loss blog community!
But its true.
I just wanna be skinny. I want to weigh 150 lbs and get my new wardrobe hubby promised me.
Is that too much to ask????
It is if you also want to be a fatty who eats animal crackers for deserts and makes casserole's for dinner that are supposed to be "skinny" but they aren't when you eat 2-3 servings of them.
Basically I know weight lifting is good for you, nothing wrong with a little muscle. I know that it burns calories longer than cardio...I have read all about it. But I just like cardio.
Trust me. It was hard for me to "like" any exercise at all.
I was always picked last for teams in gym class, I HATED running the mile and was always last and out of breath and dreaded gym like the PLAGUE!!!!
So the fact that I can put up with cardio in my life, is amazing.
Listen I just want the freaking scale to me...are ya with me?
I don't know what to do. I KNOW I have to count calories but the more cleaner I eat the harder it is, because I don't really know how many calories is in THAT particular apple or banana. I am sorry but I like food with a bar code.
I like healthy food too its just harder to log for certain the calories.
Anyone loose a ton of weight on cardio alone? What do you do in the gym?
