Still trying

Monday, October 14, 2013

My plateau continues. I just keep losing and regaining that same one pound. I've been stuck here over 2 weeks now. I see the despair that makes people quit. Despite consistency sometimes results just don't happen.

I'm tired of being so overweight. I'm tired of the well meaning but frustrating advice. No, reducing my calories has not helped. Increasing my calories has not helped. Exercising more has not helped. Exercising less has not helped. Exercising differently has not helped. My clothes don't fit any differently. I wish they were looser, but they're not.

Yes, my workouts are getting a little easier but I still am not fit enough to run. I can walk a little further and a little faster, but that's it. That's not enough to fuel my encouragement.

I'm still trying, though. I'm stubbornly trying despite evidence that trying isn't working.

    Maybe it's time to see the doctor about potentially hormone-related interference, if you're that down about it? There has to be a reason. If you've tried to adjust your program up and down and still not seen a break-through, your body chemistry might be doing something to sabotage you without you realizing it that is worth looking into. But as difficult as it seems, do try to stay positive, especially about your evidentiated improving fitness!!

    Stay positive! You can do this! Be grateful you are not gaining more and journal about all of the good stuff you are doing so you can stay on track and feel great about you... attitude is a lot of life. Yesterday I thought I was only slightly successful and it was pointed out to me that I had a great weekend. So I have to remember to not be hard on myself otherwise I become negative and the journey becomes tough. If I stay positive it is fun and exciting. I enjoy reading the articles and exercising when life is good. With encouragement we can do anything! emoticon emoticon
