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
