I am frustrated that I'm not dropping more pounds. It's one thing for someone who only has twenty pounds to lose two pounds a week but for someone who has a great deal more than that it is frustrating when you're doing everything right and still only two or three pounds a week. They say that obese women will drop more weight in the beginning until they level off. Where is my pay off for all the effort I'm putting into this? I know if I were working out it would make a difference but still I cut out all fast food, all processed foods, I'm staying on the low end of my calorie allowance, I'm eating plenty of fiber, drinking lots of water and decaf tea and my ratios are usually right on. I couldn't do any better. Honestly, I haven't even been tempted to veer off the path in more than two weeks. Yet, here I sit only five pounds down in two weeks. Women smaller than me have sluffed off fifteen pounds in the same amount of time just by cutting out soda!
My body is betraying me which scares me because if I don't see the results I need to see I'm afraid I am going to back-pedal. I want to schedule a well visit with the doctor but I want to wait until I've been on this for a little while to see if I can improve my numbers any. I doubled up on the fish oil like my doctor said so I can increase my good cholesterol number and I've been taking vitamin D for the deficiency. I figure if I keep eating properly and taking the supplements I can improve those numbers in a month or so.
Anyway, I'll be fine I'm just having a down(ish) morning.
