I think my scale froze!

Thursday, February 13, 2014

So I am beginning to have flash backs of 2013. From January to May of last year I worked out like a demon. I was burning over 3000 calories in fitness and only lost 4 pounds in 4.5 months. I eventually just quit because nothing seemed to be working. I even went to the doctor a few times frustrated with what was happening. He was not helpful and I found out this year I am pre-diabetic which may have been causeing the problem with the scale. I am now on meds but having the same problem for the past couple of weeks. I lost 9 pounds in January and now zero in Februaray. I am working out harder this month, watchig what I eat better this month and the scale has not moved in two weeks. I know if has only been two weeks but it is too early for this. My scale based on the reports (calories in/calories out) I should be at least losing one pound a week. SOO frustrated today!

I will continue to chug along and I know I need to drink more water. I have been mixing up my workouts not to do the same two days in a row. Working out different muscle groups, etc. Wish I had a magic wand that would tell me the problem so I could make the scale move again.

I know I depend on the scale to much and I have taken my measurements but that is the easiest way to see results. I am not seeing it in my clothes so I depend on my scale to show the slightest change. I know I need to throw it away for a while but I want to check my progress to make sure I am on the right track. Evidently I am not on the right track.

Maybe a miracle will happen and I will lose a pound over the next two days for weigh in. I will keep my fingers crossed while working out. ha ha

    ok, I'm going to sound like a hypocrite because I'm exactly in the same position (11pounds in january) and one pound uptick today(think it's water weight) but after my 2nd son was born(2002) my thyroid all but stopped. My doctor told me I was "normal" I was #7 out of 1-40 and low is #6...clearly he and I disagreed. Then I started meds but no one said, don't eat soy EVER and there I was with my trusty South Beach Bar...trial and error, lost the weight, built muscles, and then started feeling bunk. My hair fell out, gained weight, lethargic-lucky me I developed a gluten intolerance.

The following things cause me to hold onto weight/gain:
Most refined sweets
most grain based anything be it pasta, bread etc
too many calories
the first couple of weeks of any hard work out regime...

Calories in has to be less than calories out so track like a fiend for a week, all food, all additives, bites, licks etc...

Try to get as many processed foods out of the diet.

You could easily be holding weight due to an additive?

See if anything "pops" then head back to doctors if still stymied? Don't give up!

    I can totally relate .... exactly what has happened to me. We have to keep going and keep pushing. Remember it is not about the numbers (I have to remember this too ;)) but it is about how we feel on the inside and out, energy levels, healthy living, etc. It is a forever way of living! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
