Iím becoming increasingly frustrated and discouraged with my progress, so Iíve decided to see a nutrition councilor.
Iíve been bike commuting for over four years now. For the last 6/7 months Iíve been going to the gym, Iíve been monitoring what I eat, Iíve even taken up running and yet since my initial lose I havenít seen any changes. I measure myself weekly and there just hasnít been a real change in over four months. Iíve even given up soda entirely and not a single inch.
The breaking point was this weekend. I ran a 5k! I ran a 5K in 40 minutes! I was so happy with myself, and so pumped. And then I downloaded the pictures and thought, ďMan Iím still so fat, what gives? I just trained for and ran a 5K and Iím still as fat as ever.Ē
I felt so let down by my body. I started thinking that maybe itís not meant to be. Perhaps Iím just the way I am and nothing Iíll do will change that.
So needless to say, I got pretty down and then I got pretty angry, because Hello, I ran a 5K I should still be happy. I want to be happy. Iím tired of being the Fat Friend. Iím tired of the clothes I HAVE to wear, Iím tired of holding back because Iím fat. So I decided to see what professionals can do to help.
So hopefully, they will be able to give me some ideas on what might be keeping me on this plateau and what I can do to get off it.
