So it has been about a month since joining SP, but I haven't lost any weight! Which sucks because in order to increase my fitness points I have been working out almost every day. I have not, however, stayed within my allotted calorie range as I figure that I am workout out so I should see some results, right? WRONG! Not only have I not lost any weight but I have gained painful feet, sore knees, and back pain!! Anyhow, I hoping that my lack of weight loss is attributed to time of month water weight gain and/or muscle increase as I have only weighed myself in the beginning and last Sunday. I know its not recommended to weigh oneself daily but for me its a constant motivator and keeps me accountable so I will go back to that practice. Also I will adhere as closely as I can to the recommended calorie range and not workout so much and see what happens. I am also pondering if I really want to lose weight, as I already know "how" to lose weight but my lack of results and my near constant snacking cause me to look deep within myself and ask what is the real reason I am "doing this but not really doing it". Maybe because many of my coworkers are having weight-loss surgery or are on some type of weight-loss program (you know, the expensive kind) so I don't want to be the only fat nurse in our department. Also of note is that I will be turning forty this year so I aim to be "fit and 40" not fat and 40.
