The frustrating journey

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

I didn't expect this to be easy. Honestly, I didn't. I knew I would have ups and downs.

I have turned down junk food, cakes, pies, cheesecake.

I have chosen to get up and move when I am tired after a long day and just want to veg out in front of the tv.

I have celebrated my non scale victories: I can breathe better, as my asthma is better controlled, I feel more emotionally well and balanced, my job is very busy, but I am on top of the work asked of me.

I have had 1395 fitness minutes this month. 225 this week alone already.

I am not taking any of that away from my progress.

I am doing all the work.

So.............. I just don't get why I am not seeing progress where I REALLY want to see it. MY CLOTHES. My weight is at 184 for the second week in a row. I have actually gained a pound in the last 3 weeks. I have not lost an inch. Every objective measure of weight loss progress shows I am not doing enough.

It is just so frustrating to eat right, track/log my food, work out and have minimal to no progress. I must be doing something wrong, I just don't know what it is.

I am trying not to be frustrated and sad about this, but today is not a good day for me....

    Here's a thought I sometimes find helps me: so what choices do I have? Do I want to just throw in the towel and revert to my bad-old-ways?

    Of course I don't! So that leaves: staying the course! Tweak as one can and keep at it!

    Do something different. Have one bite of cake or peanut butter or noodles... Don't binge but just switch something up and maybe your body will rev up

    Hang in there...
    Sometimes it seems like nothing is happening, but it is. Like you said the non scale victories.
    It can be frustrating ... but I'm rather be where I am now than where I was. I've been stuck... and am changing up my stuff. perhaps that will help.
