I want off this weightloss train...

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I am like soooo discouraged at this point. I realized this morning that the 6 pounds I lost last week, sure did mean a lot to me. When I saw last week that I had lost 6 pounds, I was thinking that it should have been more. Well this morning when I got on the scale I had those 6 back plus 1. That sure put a damper on my morning. So, to see that really hurt my feelings. I have cut my calories, written down everything I ate, increased my intensity and time on the treadmill at the gym, also added incline to the treadmill, plus on Mon, Wed, Fri upper body strength training, and on Tues, Thurs, Sat lower body strength training. And i suppose to start adding core to my workout this week. Not to mention I added two more lower body machines to my workout this week, so that I am doing the same amount of upper and lower body strength training on my body.

I am so pissed and I can see why I have gotten off this weight loss train before. When one gets on the scale and sees movement go to the positive side off things and not the negative, it gets very discouraging. I intended on continueing to go to them gym and workout and keep up on eating properly, but if this doesn't change in at least two weeks, I will have to do something else. Because this isn't working.

I need some help. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. This is very frustrating.

    This is just a small bump in the road... Keep going and do not let those 6lbs get you down. You have been doing such a great job and the workout really seems intense. So keep it up and do not give up.

    Thank you both so much. I will try eating the pineapple, as a matter of fact I will go to the cafeteria shortly and get a cup. I don't want to give up, but it does get hard. I just put in my mind that maybe I'm building some muscle. I'm praying that's what it is. But, thank you both for the encouragement. I really really appreciate it.

    I agree with ladyrh, don't give up. Chances are with the increase in exercise your body is retaining some water in order to repair itself, it will come back off. I understand how you feel, I go months at one weight, I stayed at 195 for 3 months, it would go down to 193 back up to 196 down to 195 back to 193 then finally would start down again, and start that same routine. I am now at 186 and that is since May. But I am now wearing size 14 instead of 16/18's. Keep at it. Don't give up. :)

    Don't give up. I understand how discouraging an upward needle can be on the scale. We have all been there done that. You may be retaining fluid increase your water to flush it out and eat fresh Pineapple as it is a natural diuretic.
