This is probably a rant, so don't read if you don't want to. It probably have some merit and I should probably see a doctor or something. Here goes!

I am not losing weight! I lost a pound and somehow gained 3 back. I have been tracking my eating very diligently. My husband even helps keep me on track. I had one bad eating day in the last 2-3 weeks and i've been working out at least 4 days a week, at least 30 minutes, and i've been doing that for 3 weeks. another pound would be nice... another half pound would be nice! anything... So i've gone from 215.5 to 214.5 to 217.5!

My naturopathic doc had me on thyroid medicine, an herbal blend called Fat Smasher, and female hormones. I am out of my thyroid meds. I am in a new country and place, so i haven't found a new doctor yet. So I can blame that all I want I guess. I know I am eating fairly well, tracking things, working out like I want to be.. I hate being sedentary. Oddly living in the country has kept me a little sedentary. There's woods to explore I guess, but it's full of stinging nettles and horse poo. I have walked around a couple of the towns around here. Had a nice walk and counted for the activity. That was actually quite fun, as I found the library and a few other things my husband didn't even know about.

So I am just frustrated with my lack of weight loss. Especially when I"m working out. I wasn't working out before I moved, except for moving boxes and cleaning. I've been exceeding my weekly minutes on my Spark people goals. So I don't know if there really is something medically wrong with me or my body just refuses to lose weight. I know my hubby thinks i'm sexy as I am, but I would really like to get rid of the extra curves and just flat out feel better... and walk better and stuff...

sorry for the rant... I really am just frustrated with myself. Thanks

    I understand how you feel. I get frustrated with myself too. And, since I am an emotional eater frustration makes me want to eat!

    We CAN do this even if it takes longer than we want it to. emoticon

    I have thyroid problems as well, which makes me a super slow loser. Have you taken your measurements? I'll see my measurements change before I ever see a drop on the scale.

    I COMPLETELY know how you feel. I have been at a plateau for like 2 months. I do the same thing, lose 1, gain 3. It is so frustrating. I, too, have thyroid problems and some other issues with insulin resistance and dysmetabolic syndrome but am seeing a dr for these things. I stick to my diet plan and don't lose. Sometimes I think "If I am not going to lose what is the point of not eating the things I want." I have been trying to put this spin on it...If I weren't sticking to the diet, I would be gaining ! Even on a "normal"diet, maybe 1800-2000 calories and being moderately active I would gain. So, at least I am not going to get to 300 pounds this way. Chin up and eventually we WILL see that scale move in the direction we desire.
