Frustration

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I am a little bit frustrated today. I have been working out 5-6 days a week for the past few weeks and making sure that I eat within my calorie range, but nothing has changed. Nada...zilch, cero, zero...I am fighting frustration as hard as I can and trying to use it to motivate me to work out harder. I am beginning to wonder if maybe there is a problem with my thyroid or something. I know.... it's probably desperation, but I can't seem to figure out what the problem is. I seem to lose a couple of pounds, then I hit a 4-6 week wall. I see changes in the way that my clothes fit and the way that I feel, but the scale hasn't budged in about 4 weeks. I'm doing all that I know to do. I'm going to keep on keeping on and hope that one day I reach that tipping point where things shift in my favor.

    You've received great advice so far. One thing I learned when I thought I was eating within my calorie range I really wasn't gauging the food correctly. Are you using accurate measurements and calories counting? Are you drinking enough water, exercising at your heart rate? I agree with the cheat day as well. Not that you're binge eating but give yourself a little more fuel. You maybe working out too much and not getting enough calories. Revamp your program, your body may need a kick start. Don't give up whatever you do, it will move

    Lady K, First of all I wanted to congratulate on your Consistency-that will instill discipline for life- Trait of a highly successful person-!

You may need a cheat meal-your body is fighting you because it knows something is up, cheat meals "trick" the body in thinking all is well, then you rev up again and go

You may be eating too much as well-consider both sides

You need to exercise hard. Hard enough that you cannot carry a conversation with anybody

Are you strength training? that will definitely jump start your metabolism

With whatever you do, please don't lose heart-You are in it to win it!

emoticon That victory is YOURS.

    I know how you feel, I have been working out steadily and eating within my calorie range and I lost.... 0.2 lbs this week. I feel like, "is that it? do I really have to keep trying?" but YES, we have to keep it up, because our bodies are thanking us with each right choice, every workout, and every fruit/veggie, every well-prepared, well-portioned meal. My clothes are looser and my posture is better. My flabby parts are... well, they are spread a little better over my less flabby parts, and therefore less flabby looking.

In a year, you could be where you are now OR you can be stronger and leaner and WAY healthier. Don't give up on your future self, she is clamoring to be seen. Let her out!

    Some of us plateau a lot, and lose slowly. Good part is that we also gain slowly.

I used to take my measurements each month - some months I didn't lose any weight but I'd lose a lot of inches.

So you might want to do that as a measurement of your progress.

And hang in there, you'll pass this plateau and lose again. Really.

    I cannot say this would work for you but for some unforseen reason when I have a cheat day and eat 1 meal in a week that I would not normally eat I tend to start losing weight. Although I did not lose weight originally when I started this I did notice my clothes fitting different and I felt better which was just as rewarding to me. emoticon emoticon
