I've been on this journey for 29 months... I thought I 'd be done by now... I've been at the same weight since March...
I started looking back through all the trackers. Food, exercise, weight loss, trying to find SOMETHING to help me progress. I didn't lose an ounce this week. Food was good.. True, I missed 2 workouts, but 5 out of 7 isn't bad. But I would think I'd get some kind of loss out of it.
Of course when you start, you lose TONS of weight right away. It wasn't abnormal for me to lose 3-4 pounds a week. Now, I go an entire month without losing 3-4 pounds. Do I eat more, do I eat less, do I workout more or less... It's all a guessing game. I don't care what the numbers are. According to my numbers this week, I should have lost 1.3 pounds. Last week, I should have lost 2.2... You can't predict anything.
After being crabby about it for about 35 seconds, and looking over everything, I jut know I need to be consistent with food and exercise. That's the only thing that's going to help me continue to lose weight. As much as it sucks for not losing any, I know I have to be consistent.
If you look at the big picture though.. I realized that over the last 29 months, I've lost an average of 1.17 pounds per week. I guess I can't complain... It's enough to keep me going anyhow.
