Really, really, really frusterated

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

It's been about two weeks since I've gotten completly back on track with my work out routines and food logging. I have not eatten more then 1500 calories forover 15 days and have worked out a TON (over 3000 calories burned last week). I did not lose one single pound. Not one. I actually gained one. WTF. How does that even work?!??! I had a bit of a mental break down when I saw the scale and I just doing understand how this can even happen. I am doing everything right (from what I know), almost exactly how I was doing it all before when I was losing weight. I just don't understand why I'm not losing any weight...

    It could be all kinds of reasons. Remember that the scale can only measure weight, not all the wonderful healthy changes going on in the body that you cannot see just yet. Yada, yada on the muscle building weighing more that fat lost, and the same with fluid retention......there are just too many possibilities.

Keep on keeping on. It will eventually come. Are you using a tape measure? Amazing how many inches can be lost when the scale stays the same!

40 pounds! That's a small child, and it's not longer on my body! I have a goal of 10 more lbs by the wedding, but at this rate, maybe it'll end up being more... Holy crap! It's nothing short of a small miracle because my PCOS has been a nightmare, but I'm doing it! Anyways, I need to celebrate the small things at this point, but this one is huge!

I'm still here

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Just not here... I am still using the skills and tools that SP has taught me, but I am doing them without consistantly logging on and entering in my info. I just don't have the time or consistancy to accomplish that right now.

BUT, I am still losing, just at a little bit of a slower pace. I'm making healthy choices and working out whenever I can, which is MUCH more then what I can say for myself one year ago. I have lost nearly 35 lbs in 5 months, which may not seem like a lot to some people, but for me moving mountians might actually be easier!

Oh, I also have to buy a new wedding dress, mine is too big to alter! How exciting is that?!

    You are doing wonderfully!! I have been at this for 5 months and have managed to lose 22 pounds. The past month has been not so good. But moving away from logging everything is part of the process. As long as you remember that if you get off track you can always go back to stricter adherence.
I am so happy about the wedding dress! All that fabric really does look better in a smaller size. You are going to be so beautiful!!!!

I mentioned that I was going to be changing up my weight loss plans, but I'm a bit afraid that I won't be able to succeed during the February/March months. It seems like there is something new every day that makes it difficult to work out, and bad choices that keep me from losing weight.

In any case, I am hoping that if I change my goals to be 1 lb/week I can maintain some sort of weight loss during this busy camp season. Anything beyond that 1 lb will be excellent! I would really LOVE to be at 180 or less for my wedding, and though that seems like a high number for some people, my smallest adult weight has been 175.

Because I have never been below that weight I don't know if I'm actually able to lose much more then that. My PCOS sort of limits what I can lose and the Dr.s that I work with have all said that 160ish would be healthy for me to be at. (It's not an excuse) but I acutally do have big bones, and quite a bit of muscle under all this fat, so I feel that much under that would just look akward on me. Then again, I don't know because I've never been there! We'll see where this journey takes be, but I'm happy with where I've already come from!


Another weigh in!

So, I was SO nervous going into this weekend but I brought my own food and ate minimal amounts of the naughty stuff. By some miracle I still managed to lose 2 lbs last week! I was hoping to get a little ahead of my weight loss schedule, but I'll be happy with 2 lbs in the mean time. My life is a little turned around right now because I'm on the road quite a bit recruiting for summer camp staff. I'm hoping to make healthy 'on the road' choices and do my best to keep up with my work out routines.

Wish me luck! I'll need it over the next couple of months, last year between February and August I gained 12 lbs. My goal is to lose that and more! emoticon
