Onward and Hopefully Not Upward
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
I'm still struggling with the whole not losing any weight thing. I wouldn't say i'm concerned, but its definitely weird to me. Before I started being serious about losing weight I would just have a few days where i'd eat better than others and lose a few pounds. Now I've gone almost 3 weeks of measuring, planning and working out and I've been at 279 the entire time.
I asked my trainer today how soon she would be able to measure me or check my body fat or something, she said she does it every 4 weeks. That would be May 27th for me. I told her I feel better overall but i'd like to know if I've lost any inches because if I've stayed exactly the same everywhere then i'm obviously doing something very wrong.
I know everyone has been saying to hang in there (and I am!) and that sometimes its a slow process, etc. I'm not saying that can't be true, but I've been gaining and losing weight for awhile now, and every time I put my mind to it and do the amount of portioning & exercising i'm doing now I lose weight easily and steadily. So this is just weird. I've been using the NuvaRing for about three months now, and I've heard things about weight gain/problems using that, but i'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.
My trainer told me to text her pictures of a few days of my food diary so she could go over it and see if anything needs to be changed. I also conveniently have a gyno appointment tomorrow so I will bring it up to her as well. I am still motivated and looking forward to the blog I write called I LOST FIVE POUNDS!!!!
