Struggling but not giving up...

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

So I was on this determined road in January to lose weight, get fit and had this glorious notion that if I walked three times a week and stopped ordering hoagies and large unhealthy breakfasts that I would see changes. I did for about two months and lost 7 pounds and then, wham! I gained it all back and had no idea why. I would read all kinds of articles, try different strategies and nothing seemed to work. I felt like the more I read, the more that my health, eating, excersising seemed like a science I couldn't figure out. My doctor suggested seeing a nutrionist. I had my first meeting with her over a week ago and as much as I hated the idea of keeping a food diary (again, counting calories was a science I kept getting frustrated with) I have been doing so since my appointment. It truely is an eye opener and I have found myself trying to pick the better options that are best for me. I am down 2 pounds since my first meeting and I see her again next month. It is not easy and nothing is easy if you are looking for positive results. I struggle every day but I don't give up.

    Good for you! I hope this works out well for you. It is a struggle, especially when you aren't seeing the results you would like.

Look for other positive changes as well, other than just the scale. I began this journey only wanting to lose weight, but once I started excercising regularly, I began noticing my clothes getting looser, and later on my belly was shrinking, and my waistline was returning. I never expected that, because I wasn't really working out real hard or anything. And I began noticing toning in my arms, butt, etc, and I feel great. It didn't happen quickly, but it has been more important to me than just lbs.

Never give up! There's so much to look forward too!
