Feeling quite discouraged

Sunday, March 02, 2014

So today has been a rough one for me. I realized, though I pray i'm wrong, that i will probably stay fat forever. I have been working out three months straight, one day off every week. I have been eating way better than I used to, and dropped two pant sizes. I just can't get that scale to budge anymore. I dont know what I'm doing wrong. I feel like a disappointment and spent an hour upset and crying today . Hope tomorrow brings more hope.

    Wow! 2 pant sizes?? That is fantastic!! Well done!!
    Everyone hits a plateau sometimes, maybe the body trying to get used to the new lower weight, but quite often it can be your body has gotten used to what ever exercise you are doing. The sad fact is the fitter you get, the less calories you will burn. So if you are doing nothing but walking every day, you will be doing that efficiently. You need to change things up. Sparks recommends every eight weeks try something different. If you don't have one, try adding a strength training program, building muscle burns more calories and for longer after a workout then cardio. Women don't bulk they just tone taking more inches off. There are lots of things to try out there, see what you can find that interests you!

    Hang in there CDC. You've accomplished much...down 2 pant sizes? emoticon

    It took me 8 months to drop 2 pant sizes and 5 weeks of walking roughly 20 miles per week to lose my first pound.

    I was discouraged too. But, I knew that the changes I had made were contributing to a healthier me even though those changes were not revealing themselves on the scale.

    Hang tough. A good cry can be good.

    May tomorrow bring you hope!
