Day 28 - Feeling Defeated!

Friday, April 20, 2012

Well, I had a feeling that I wouldn't like the weigh in here today at work. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I walk every day and it's not a sissy stroll either. I am walking fast and doing it with meaning. Then sometimes when I get at home I'll do something additional like leg lifts and push-ups.

I don't want to throw the towel in but so many other people are able to do this and lose weight - why am I not one of those people??

I am wondering if I should take a week off of walking every day and just focus on the food intake. And I have been tracking everything and staying within my ranges for what SP provided.

Just not sure what I am doing wrong. I feel good overall but still feel defeated. I know that I can make this happen but I am not sure what my next step should be at this point.

I did go out yesterday and bought a few yogurts to try since I don't typically like them but wanted to give it another shot as a way to have something sweet and still have it be good for me.

    Just remember that when you are making right choices the desired results will follow. It may take some time but consistency always wins. Don't give up, just keep going forward and you'll make it!

    I hadn't thought about the fact that I was walking too fast and that might make a difference! Wow! Thanks for that input.

    At the gym, they told our weight loss group that this can happen if you are walking too fast. If your heart is racing, even just 10 beats above your fat-burning zone, it will slow down your weight loss. I use a Polar sports watch that has Own Zone on it that measures my goal heart rate for each workout.

    Maybe you are building muscle! I know that when you exercise you build muscle and muscle weighs more than fat.
Don't get discouraged keep up the good work and before you know it you will get to where you want to be.
