Kali, I know how frustrating it can be when you work hard and then the scales refuse to move. I know it is hard not to, but don't let it all be about the weight. Getting healthy by eating right and exercising is a good thing no matter how you look at it. It will keep you around on this earth to see those beautiful children grow up and it will keep you around to spoil the grandchildren that will come one day.
Kali on this journey we hit our highs and lows. Sounds like you hit a plateau. Happens to all of us and it can be quite frustrating. Hang in there and push through it. Your body will love you for it! As I constantly remind myself, I didn't put the weight on overnight.
It will happen do remember that muscle weighs more than fat so you may have been building muscle. One day sooner than you know you will see results .It is frustrating to think you are working hard and the blasted scale refuses to budge but it will . I feel completely sure the breakthrough is just around the corner for you.Never ever give up! 1622 days ago
Honey, hang in there! I can't tell you how many SparkFriends I have who have been so frustrated because they've worked SO HARD, and for MONTHS, the stupid scale is stuck on the same number, or worse! DON'T QUIT! Just around some corner, and you don't know which corner it will be, suddenly you're going to find that the bottom begins to fall out, and you lose weight faster than you can imagine... at least until the next plateau!
You have two choices. It's either give up and hate yourself as you gain weight and feel terrible, or press on. Pressing on is tough, and you may not see results right away, but it sure beats the other scenario!
