Wednesday Pawse - Day 14

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I did it! I did everything I should. Mixed it up - ate plenty of fruit and veggies, lean protein, drank tons of water, logged 587 fitness minutes for the week.

And I lost 1/2 pound.

Something's got to give! I don't want to live the rest of my life at 180 pounds! At 5'8", I think 150 is a doable goal. Why can't I get past this?

What can I tweak? I will just keep on keeping on....One foot in front of the other.

    And............YOU LOST A HALF A POUND!!!! You didn't gain! You didn't stay the same! You lost!!! Celebrate!! emoticon Embrace the losses, no matter how small!! Someone else said it here - look for other things that you can use IN ADDITION to tracking weight. Measurements? Measure the distance you run, and try to go further? Endurance? Increased strength from one week to the next? There are many additional ways to track progress, especially when totally frustrated with the scale! Find what ways will be motivating to you, and try to focus on those, in addition to the scale! It will come!!! Just keep plugging away!!! (((HUGS)))) We're behind you 100%!! :-)

    You did everything you set out to do AND lost 1/2 a pound!!!! That means that you fueled your body well, got up and exercised so your heart and lungs and other body parts are working more efficiently, you had a GREAT week! The weight will come off in its own time; ignore that and look at all the great things you did for yourself and your body this week!!

    You are making progress. A half pound loss is still a loss. You will get there. Keep at it. The work will pay off.

    Me too! Oh you are having the same 'problem' I've had. I have not lost weight since I joined in September but have lost some inches and improved my general health. You have to remember there is no 'one-size-fits-all' diet plan that will make everyone lose weight. My body does NOT respond to calorie restriction but it does respond to strength training. I discovered this after 8 months here at SP. I've blogged about this topic quite a bit actually.

    Don't give up. Your health is improving when you eat better and move more even if you can't see it on the scale. Try everything to find what works for you. Good luck!
