No phone call from my doctor

Sunday, February 22, 2015

It's been a while since my thyroid test, and I haven't gotten a call from the doctor's office. That means my thyroid is okay. This is good, but it doesn't help me figure out why I can't seem to lose any weight. 33 days now, I've been logging my food and my exercise, keeping within my calorie limits, drinking my water.
The scale and my waistline have not budged. I'm tired, and I'm losing what little hope I had left. It's not that I want to eat junk food, or stuff myself or anything, I just want to see even one pound disappear, or drop back down into my size 22W's. At this point I'd settle for that.

    In my own experience, my calorie needs are far below the "norm". I had 3 different dietitians including 2 certified in sports nutrition. My thyroid is normal. My metabolism is not. It is highly efficient, which is horrible news for weight loss. The standard calorie recommendations to lose 1# per week results in me maintaining weight with my consistent high daily exercise level. What I'm saying is that the numbers you are using may not be correct. You may be a statistical outlier. The formula is always the same. When caloric intake is less than caloric need then weight loss occurs. The frustrating part is in finding what your true calorie need is as well as what you actually burn in an activity. I've decided my body doesn't burn calories when I exercise, LOL. Apparently my engine runs on air. Keep testing the bottom of your calorie needs.

    i was like you a few months back. Eliminating sugar except for maybe 1 piece if fruit a day did the trick. Also, cut all processed food, which usually contains a lot of sugar. Keep persevering!
