Week 4

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I'm trying not to dwell on the results of my weigh/measure in this morning. I'm at the exact same almost everything that I was 2 weeks ago, despite days of working out and eating within my ranges, and I actually gained half a pound this week. I had a few strange inches losses (neck?) but gains in other places that created a wash in loss.

I'm frustrated, I wish that hard work= results. I know that I have a lot of stress to combat and I usually don't get a full 8 hours of sleep, but if this amount of effort is what it takes to maintain, then I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to get back to my goals, and I'm not even sure I'll be able to maintain.

I really thought that 1 pound a week was a reasonable expectation. But now its been four weeks and I'm only down one pound. (down one, down one, up half, up half!)

I'm not giving up. We (my husband and I) are really trying to give this a fair shot this time. Superbowl weekend is coming up, and we have a lot of weddings and events, so I can see places where I'm going to have to stand strong, and that would be a lot easier if I had some successes to motivate me.

But, this is the way its going, so I'm going to keep pushing, keep trying, and give it time. We are doing the Jillian Michaels detox, you'd think we would at least lose some water weight, but I'll wait until next week to determine the results of this experiment. We are doing a Barre class and trying to fit cardio in so hopefully it will begin to really show soon.

    I know it is very frustrating to work so hard and not get the results you were expecting but keep at it and I am sure they will come. I would think that at your weight maybe 1/2 lb a week would be reasonable - you don't have much to loose!

Since loosing weight is 80% diet have you taken a hard look at what you are eating? Are you getting enough real food and nutrients vs. processed junk? Maybe you actually need to eat more - gasp! Play around with your nutrition a little and see what happens. You never know emoticon

I hope you have some good results next week and find that motivation to keep going. emoticon
