Why is weight loss so hard?
Saturday, February 02, 2013
I had a successful February in all ways except one. I measured and logged my food for all 31 days with an average calorie intake of 1382 calories per day. I wore my fitbit all days except one and logged over 135 miles for the month. I did struggle with evening eating but I logged it all and still stayed under my calorie goals all but three days. "Then what are you whining about?" you asked. The scale only recognized a 3 pound weight loss for the entire month. I know I should be happy with a loss but this weight game has been consuming my every thought for a month and I hoped for so much more. It just emphasises how slow my metabolism really is. Math would suggest that I should have lost just over 8 pounds this month instead of 3. Okay, enough of the pity party, I am moving on to a successful February.
