Weight not budging but still trying

Friday, January 18, 2013

I don't seem to have the body I used to when I was younger. I used to be able to eat what I wanted and then run for 1 half an hour and loose a couple of lbs. Now that I'm 43 everything seems to have slowed down. I'm feeling a little frustrated today. For 2 or 3 weeks now I've been exercising 5 to 6 days a week (yoga, walking & occasionally a run) and I've been eating better for the most part too but my weight doesn't seem to want to come off. I do look more toned now but perhaps I'm a part of this instant gratification society because I want those lbs gone and NOW! Lol. I'll stick to it though. Maybe I'll be healthier on the inside even if I still can't fit into those clothes that used to fit me loosely. I've given up coffee and switched to tea so maybe that will help too. In the past as strange as it sounds, when I've switched to tea instead of coffee I've lost weight. It may have something to do with how the coffee affects my hormones and causes me to retain fluid. I go back and forth with the spark calorie counter. I've been able to loose weight by using it but it is pretty time consuming and It's hard to sleep at night when you go to bed hungry so I always end up straying away from that plan. My new plan is to eat more whole foods and foods that I've prepared rather than prepackaged foods. Maybe over time this will pay off and the pounds will come off and I just need to be patient.

    I was having the same problem. I knew I was doing the right things, and I went weeks without losing. I made a few minor tweaks and lost 3 pounds last week. When I look back, the tweaks were so obvious, but since I was in the right calorie range I thought I was okay. Minor changes can make a big difference. Good luck finding what works for you. That's really what this is all about.
