Stalled out

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Day 22 is frustrating... I have only lost 8.6 pounds but since Thursday of last week, the scale has stalled out. I miss seeing the number going down. I blame myself for not going to the gym Friday, crappy meal on Saturday and not pushing hard enough in the gym Sunday. I have hit the gym for 6 days a week in the last three weeks.

I know all of this is a factor but I am being too hard on myself. I lost two inches in my chest, hips and waist in three weeks but I feel like it should be more. I am not being unhealthy... I am eating enough plus working out but why will the scale not drop!?

I am missing food as my comfort but I know that will make it worse. I have read a lot of motivation quotes today to stay on track and am trying to walk extra today. I just am so close to ten pounds and want to hit that goal. I want to feel that excitement.

My fiancée has lost 11.8 in two weeks and I am jealous of that which I shouldn't be. I love him and I am so happy for him.. It makes me want to work harder because he is doing so well but at what cost? The scale not moving.

I am being unrealistic.

    Keep in mind that you may have been flushing extra water weight in the beginning if you started drinking a lot more water. The healthy weight loss recommendation is 2 pounds/week, so you're ahead of the game at the moment! Also, muscle weighs more than fat, so if you're starting a new exercise plan, you're going to be adding muscle in place of fat, that will balance out the numbers or cause you to gain quite often, but those muscles will also help you increase your metabolism in the long run! Keep an eye on the tape measure more than the scale, that will show you if you're gaining/not losing due to muscle mass. Also, don't compare yourself to your fiance too much, guys tend to lose weight more easily than women, so that's just setting yourself up for frustration! Good luck to you, you can do this!
