What the heck is going on??

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

I believe we all have had this issue but really....I've been working out consistently for 6 weeks now. 6 days a week with cardio and lifting routine set up by a trainer. I am going in today to have her change it up since it's been 6 weeks. I wasn't tracking my food for probably the first 3-4 weeks. Thought I could do it in my head but honestly that wasn't quite working. I feel spectacular as far as motivation, energy etc...BUT WHAT THE HECK...I haven't lost a stinkin' pound. I know I can't go by what the scale says, whatever, we all like to see the number drop. But come on day I'm down 1.5 then I'm back up.
I believe things are changing with my body, my husband says I am toner. My pants are fine not really showing too much sign of weight loss. ITS SO FRUSTRATING!!

I will keep at it though because I love the way I'm feeling otherwise. Haven't felt this good in years. Hopefully a smaller pant size is coming.

Have a happy and healthy day!

    Hi Gymgirl, did you happen to read this blog today?

It really made me stop and think that yes, it is worth it to just lose a pound even if it takes 2 weeks! A half a pound is better than no pound right? I hope you stay with it and know that you have others that can't get rid of the fat over night. I guess we didn't gain it over night even if it seems as though we have.

    I know it's a pain in the rear end but you HAVE to keep track of your food and you have to for at least a 'bit' of time say a good month probably several. Yeah it's no fun but it helps you stay accurate and accountable.

    I stay off the scale (I weigh in no more than 1x a month). Just go by your measurments and how you look/feel.

Your muscle will increase as your fat decreases. Be patient, those smaller pants will come. emoticon

    I'm in the same boat as you. It's really frustrating...but it's more exercise that before so something has to be changing. It's impossible that it's not. My bf says I'm looking better...just wish I could see it.
I'm focusing on how tight my calves look lol. GL on your journey!
