Still slogging along...

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Man, it's getting depressing. I don't mind 'slow', but this is ridiculous. I'm trying to be good and stay within the dietary guidelines. I'm getting in some exercise (evidently not enough). And I've only lost .4 in two weeks! The same thing happened to me last year. It's like my weight is fighting to stay put, but I'm going to win this time. I just pray that I don't have anymore family crises to distract me.

    Maybe you should start measuring your success in ways other than the number on the scale.
    How are you feeling?
    How's your energy level?
    How are you sleeping?
    How is your stress level?
    How are your clothes fitting?
    The scale may not cooperate but your life should reflect the healthy changes you are making.
    The pounds will go in their own good time.
    Never ever ever give up.

    Sometimes the weight in scale numbers stays the same because the exercise you are doing is building more muscle which actually weights less than the fat you have lost. I found that measurements help when the scale seems stuck. I can see inches coming off when the scale won't move! Hope this helps!! Just keep on trying!!! emoticon

    Oh, yeah, I can see how 0.4 pounds in 2 weeks might get you down....I personally would like to see a 2 pounds loss each and every single week. That would be a good thing. But it's stopped happening.

    Why do you think you've stalled out? Are you exercising more, so you're building muscle as fast as you're losing fat? Are you being honest in your calorie counts (I thought of these because they're 2 things that I screw up on regularly).

    Maybe you need to change your exercise routine.

    Hang in there. One day you'll hop on the scale and find, to your happiness, that you've lost 4 pounds!

    Good luck!
