Weight loss has never been easy for me. Not that it is easy for anyone. But as with everything in life, when you put in the work, you expect to see results. And when you don't see results, it's time to reevaluate the plan. I have been diligently tracking every morsel for one month. I have been sticking to my plan and keeping within my range of calories. I have stepped up my workouts. I added weight training, 3 times per week. I have changed the type of food I am eating. I'm avoiding sugar and processed food. I haven't had a can of diet soda in 30 days. I have been drinking 8-10 glasses of water every single day. And this morning when I stepped on the scale I realized that I have only lost 1 measly pound. A month of work and change for one pound. So it's time to reevaluate the plan. Perhaps I need to focus on eating earlier in the day? Or maybe my metabolism just isn't up to par and I need to cut my calories even more? I looked at the Calorie Differential Over Time Report and according to that, I should be losing weight. But I am not. Despite the disappointing number on the scale, I am still motivated to continue this journey. I am not ready to go back to my old ways. I just need to reevaluate and find the change that moves the scale.
