Making Progress

So I've been trying a couple of things differently for the past week and I feel like I need to share these. The first thing is that I haven't weighed myself in two weeks. My intake has been good - around 1000 - 1200 and not having the pressure of stepping on the scale every morning makes it a little bit easier to accept that kind of intake. I don't feel like I am being fat, because I don't feel full. But I'm also not beating myself up. ALSO, I don't feel the need to binge at the moment. I mean, I don't really know what has changed for me, but I think I might keep going with not weighing for a little while. Maybe I'll weigh once a week... dunno. Maybe. 

The other thing that I've been doing is kettlebell workouts. Okay, not workouts. I bought one last week online, because carrying a huge thing home was gonna be too much for me, but then it hasn't arrived, because the courier is useless. So I cancelled that order and went to buy one from the store. I did my first workout an hour ago and my muscles are useless and shaky. Because, I've never been a workout person. I mean - I have no muscles. I'm determined to look good though. I want to have some muscles and feel strong. 

I don't know what's going on with me right now, but there it is. 

... I have something else that I need advice on, but don't have time to write about it right now, so I'll post again a bit later. It's a bit of a boy drama... which confuses me... and DON'T WORRY - it isn't about Roy. :)

i'd die if i haven't weighed myself for 2 weeks (nearly made it). apparently staying off the scales just makes me gain a whole load of weight. sad fat Sam.
1,000-1,200 calories. man, i'm jealous. for me, this is very little. i'm just getting a cap on my eating. it's been 2 days (today's the third) but it's so far the farthest i've gone without wanting to eat my hand so that's good progress. in fact, i am a bit full right now (i had a pizza yum).
kettlebells. omg. i've never worked with those. there are tonnes of ones at the gym.
i've not gone to the gym for 3 weeks but i went yesterday and i went on the elliptical the day before. the spin class that i used to find so easy was suddenly unbearable! i'm going today hopefully :') i'm getting a step workout!
i am still SO SO jealous of your BMI. i want to cry. FP, why are you so thin?

I have negative muscle and the first time a did a 30 min kettle workout (5 pounds) I about died. I tried doing yoga after and could barely do the moves my legs were so shaky. Anyway, took two classes but I got a hang of it. Keep it up and you'll go far.

Congrats on the weigh/scale accomplishment. Stepping away from the scale is so difficult to do and yet one of the best things we can do for ourselves.
