I've gone mostly off track ever since memorial day weekend. That was supposed to be my big end goal where I would have lost 35-45 pounds and looked amazing, but instead I lost 10 pounds, and stopped caring.
It's definitely a little frustrating when I watch what I eat, log everything carefully, get in an hour of strenuous cardio exercise a day, I either maintain my weight, or maybe lose a pound a month if I'm lucky. I'm also exhausted all the time, and feel like I want to die after exercising. I don't understand that "exercise high" I hear about, because I'm ready to pass out after 30 minutes of sweating heavily.
I don't get it. It's not like I live an extraordinarily unhealthy lifestyle. I walk my dog regularly, I eat a lot of vegetables and eat mostly balanced meals. I do eat more carbs than I should, and I I'm sporadic about strength training. I eat pizza once a week for dinner, but practice portion control. My thyroid is under control. My endometriosis hasn't bothered me for awhile (though it's starting to hurt again) I have to eat a LOT of salt because of my chronic low blood pressure, but aside from that, I just don't get it. :P
Is there some secret I'm not in on? Why don't I get to be in the "I'm losing weight!" club?
