Finally after several weeks + I have finally lost some significant weight. I am so happy. I was beginning to think I couldn't lose weight at all. It was making me crazy. I have been working out consistently and eating right too. But nothing was moving on the scale. Finally last week I dropped below my old low weight and now I am down more.
Whew. It happened
I posted this on a message board here, I did it to encourage others just starting out. I've been working out eating better since maybe March, but I wasn't consistent. But I was doing something vs the nothing before so that is what was frustrating.
I had already told a couple of people that if things didn't start moving soon I' was going to go back to the dr and see if something else was going on.
But in June, since nothing was changing I got SERIOUS about doing the tracking, and eating right and doing exercising consistently too.
I also think I began to up the protein and eating more in the mid to upper range of the possible amounts and lower on the carbs.
and in doing so I got my fix on my snack crutch which is ice cream. So I made my own ice cream with greek yogurt-no fat, and frozen strawberries. Satisfies my sweet tooth craving and ups my protein count
I happy that even this week, I've dropped a bit more or stayed consistent, rather than yo-yoing back up the scale.
