Four months and only 3 pounds...Grrrrr!
Friday, March 01, 2013
So...I weighed in today after two weeks and I have not lost any weight. I started the shred diet 6 weeks ago to get my portion sizes under control and basically to learn how to eat properly and I have lost only 3 pounds in the 6 weeks. My husband says I look smaller, so I continue to exercise 5 days a week and eating healthy. I have been working out for 5 days/week a total of 4 months now doing cardio workouts for 50-65 minutes (the variation was determined by the number of miles I had scheduled to run). When I first started getting back into exercising, I was desperate as I had picked up 20 pounds over the last 6 months. Now, I have to admit that I feel a bit discouraged getting on the scale today to see that I have only lost 3 pounds in the 4 months that I have made all these changes. I thought by now that I would be back in a size 10 and much slimmer. Well, that does not seem to be in the plans for me. Although I feel discouraged, I don't want to go back to those old eating habits so I keep on keeping on. I don't know what it will take to start these pounds to drop, but I refuse to lower my calorie intake from what it is now, that is for sure. I don't want a quick fix that will mess up my metabolism, so I will continue to eat the well rounded meals and exercising. Well, I have a scheduled 11 miler tomorrow, so I need to touch it down for the night. If you take time to read this, stay on track and don't give up!:)
