Level 3, day 5

Weight 143 (a little Phillips goes a long way, I guess)
Waist: 31
Hips: 39

So I'm five days away from the end of the Shred, and for the second time around, still no progress. 19 days until summer break, so maybe I'll make some progress then when I can devote more time to exercise. I haven't seen much in the ways of progress. Maybe my muscles are a bit more developed, but they are tucked away under a layer of pudge that won't budge, so who knows. My clothes fit the same. My measurements are the same. I'm debating between doing the Shred again with heavier weights, or finding a weight-specific workout video that I can try. And I will add a few miles of walking every day when summer arrives.

Until then, I'm just still discouraged. All this effort and I'm barely maintaining my current weight.

    It is discouraging when it seems that we've stalled. But even if you aren't losing weight or you aren't losing sizes, you are still making healthy choices. Are you sure that you haven't just chosen a target weight that is too low for you? I don't know how tall you are but 143 is not a bad weight unless you are quite short. What body type are you? Your measurements could indicate a mesomorph and that will give you a different "normal" shape than for an ecto or endomorph.

    Try not to be too discouraged. You are doing all the right things. It will pay off in better health.
