Okay. So I have been WORKING MY BEHIND OFF!! I have been sticking to my guidelines and eating well (with the odd meal out here and there) for the past 2 MONTHS, and my weight just fluxuates 1-2 pounds up and down. I am trying to keep in mind that this is a life change and to keep me healthy and all of that - but it is extremely hard to not see any results with the ferocity I have been keeping at this. It's hard to see people that joined after me just zip on past me. I know that everyone is different, but it's not like I am just sitting around WAITING for the weight to come off! Truthfully, I cried this morning after I weighed myself. I trained for a my upcoming 5K with the ferocity of a marine in boot camp all weekend and NOTHING! I have been good with my meals all week and NOTHING! Getting in my strength training until my thighs feel as if they are on fire and NOTHING!!! Since many feel that there is a technical aspect of this that cannot be denied - I have listed my "stats' below. Can someone please help me figure out what I could be doing differently?
