I am getting frutrated with myself. After Zumba tonight we stood around and talked. They have come to the conclusion that the problem might be that I am not getting enough calories now and that is why no weight lost. I want to be down so bad before the end of March into the 160s. So now I have to learn how to push more protein and veggies I guess. I am going to try to do fruit smoothies and push the protein somehow. Just afraid of over eating but have discovered that I am only getting about 1000 cals a day in. Now to train the mind to do more. I have just gotten to the place of being afraid of foods now. I am staying around 177 all the time. I do the threadmill every morning for at least 15 minutes and then work with my 2 lb weights for awhile plus situps and knee bends. 2 nights a week I go to Zumba and work for an hour. I need to try to calcutate my calories better is my next challenge. Who ever thought that not eating enough would be a problem. Oh how I wish summer was here to get out and walk and do more outside. But then again time goes to fast as it is. i am sure it is the winter blahs and I will get over it. I have the end of March to look forward to and will try to still make my goal. With Gods help all is possible.

Now that i have vented I hope to feel better. Thanks for listening.

    As surprising as it is, eating too little can be just as hard on your weight loss journey as eating too much. Are you using Spark's nutrition tracker? Did they set up a nutritional guideline for you when you first started? A great place to add protein is eggs/egg whites and nut butters, even increase your lean proteins. Up your meal portion an ounce and you'll find that isn't over filling but gets you the extra your body needs.

    You are doing great and this is all part of this journey, look at it this's better than telling you to eat less.

    This is one of those learning experiences. You'll find the right balance for you - it might just take a little trial and error. You've got the hard part (regular exercise) down! Keep it up!
