I'm feeling somewhat down and frustrated. Two months I've been at this - tracking what I eat, weighing and measuring, staying in a weight loss calorie range every week, and swimming 1.5-2 hours 4 to 7 times a week. I'm working hard at this. And, yes, I'm down two pant sizes - and I know that's not nothing. But the scale has moved only 12 pounds in those two months. And when I see someone else who eats in my calorie range and is losing literally 5 times faster than I am, I feel kind of defeated. I can't do any more exercise than I'm already doing. I'd have to be in the pool seven or eight hours a day to burn off a pound of fat a day! It's such a HUGE accomplishment for me that I've been able to make time in my schedule for 1.5-2 hours at the pool before going to work for a 10-12 hour day.
I don't have much more to say. I just feel sad.
