I am feeling really frustrated because I have been slowly GAINING weight over the last six weeks, when I should have been losing. I looked back through my tracker and came to three conclusions:
1. I went through an extremely strict two weeks where I ate only roughly 1,200 calories per day and was having a protein + fruit or veggie in every meal. But I didn't lose any weight the first week I did that. So then I relaxed, stayed in my ranges but was less strict, and I packed on weight quickly.
2. I am not exercising enough. Maybe three times per week, but only really sweating 2x per week, the other is long walks (3+miles). Perhaps that is the issue?
3. This may be over sharing, but hopefully the ladies will understand. I had to change BC pills. My doctor said I might see a slight weight increase, but that it would be due to eating more... haven't been eating more but I have seen the increase. When I asked her about it she said after a few months it would "even out," no clue if that should make me feel better or worse but it is frustrating.
I am basically completely frustrated and unmotivated and starting to wonder what on earth is the point? My current weight is 150.8, my starting weight on SP was 148.5 Goal: 142 - 145, a weight I maintained over the last decade until I had a really stressful and inactive last year.
Any words of encouragement or ideas would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you for listening.
