Sunday, March 10, 2013

Had my Sunday weigh-in. I was 158. I didn't lose a pound. I've been eating 1,225 to 1,275 for the last week. I'm very disappointed. Before I started working the night shift in July 2012, I was losing weight pretty steady. Once the night shift started I slowly started gaining. In fact, I've gained back 15 pounds since July. I've been incredibly frustrated with the gain. I had a lot of trouble with the loss from December 2011 to March 2012, but then from March to June 2012 my loss was pretty steady and I was getting near my goal. Since July, I've been stuck. I'm discouraged. I'm confused. I feel pretty miserable right now.

    I'm so incredibly frustrated that I've been hovering around the same number (give or take a few) for 8 months now. Every month, once I see that I haven't lost anything, I switch up the diet and workouts. I can only assume this insane plateau is because of the night job, nothing else has change drastically in my life. The only good news I have to look forward to is that my last day on the night shift is May 27. I'll be very happy to leave this job and get my body back into a normal rhythm. I keep at it everyday, eating in my calorie rage, but sometimes... it just doesn't seem worth it. I put in all the effort and see NOTHING in return. It gets so hard.

    I am LITERALLY in the exact same position. I went from 175 to 147 last summer/fall, then my medical school clerkships started to have a lot of late night shifts and I gained back 12 pounds. This past week I have also ate well within my calorie range (minus last night's dinner haha), and I only lost 1 pound. I was very disappointed too. I think we just have to keep at it! emoticon
