At some point, we feel our problems aren't as bad as everyone elses. However, as KIWI noted, that doesn't make it any less a problem.
Why are you tired ? Have you been under any unusual stress lately ? I'm a big believer that stress is a neglected aspect of weight gain. If a person could reduce their stress, they'd automatically reduce their waistline.
There is a lot we don't know what's going on with your life. We don't know if you're under stress. We don't know if you have any medical issues. We don't know if you might suffer from depression. We don't know what you're eating.
Have you been eating enough ? Food = energy. and no food no energy. If you've recently decreased how much you eat and increased the amount of exercise you do, that would cause serious fatigue. Maybe you have been doing too much exercise for your body to handle. The right amount of exercise will keep our bodies fit. Too much exercise CAN cause fatigue, injury and burn out. You may be experiencing some burn out. Not unusual. What to do when you have burn out ? Time to rethink your exercise routine. time for a change.
When is the last time you had a physical ? If you've been feeling out of sorts these last few days or weeks, maybe it's time to talk to your doctor. Have a physical done to see if maybe there is a physical reason for your funk. Maybe you are experiencing some depression. Worse case scenario ? Fatigue in women has been linked to heart disease. So, if you haven't been to the doctor in a while, it may be time to go.
To me, it doesn't matter how bad someone else's problem is, a problem is a problem, is a problem.
What is happening that you are stuck, tired etc.? Are you eating properly? As in good balance of fruit/veges, healthy lean protein and getting some good carbs and healthy fats into the mix?
I see that you appear to be quite keen on various exercises - are you doing too much?
Are you getting enough sleep? (not burning the candle at both ends?)
Have you had a medical to see if there is something going on which can cause tiredness? Making an appointment with your Dr might be a good idea. Bloods are a good place to start to see where your iron level is and how your thyroid is functioning, etc., because sometimes a medical issue can leave a person feeling like you describe! How are your emotions? Sometimes when a person is emotionally drained, they also become physically drained.
I hope that gives you something to go on!

I'm looking over topics here, and see some folks have problems much worse than mine.
