It's Not to Be
Thursday, November 15, 2018
So I plateaued 6 months ago, in May. I have not lost a single pound since then, despite my best efforts. My weight varies between 204 and 206. That would be fine if this is where I want to be, but it isn't! I was hoping to get down to about 150, but I guess it's not to be. I went to the doctor, and he suggested dropping to 1300 calories a day. The problem with this is that I'm eating about 1400 calories a day right now, which according to SP, I should be losing weight on. I honestly don't see how eating 50 or 100 calories less a day is going to do any good. At that rate, I might lose a half a pound or one pound every month on two. So what, three or four per year? I mean, that can happen by accident! I feel that for all the effort I'm putting in, I'm getting nothing out. I mean, I can cut more and more and more, I can exercise some crazy amount, but I am convinced that my body simply doesn't want to lose any more weight, and if this is where it wants to stay, then I am just going to have to live with this. The doctor couldn't seem to explain why my metabolism seems to be so low. We checked my thyroid, but it was fine. A little on the low side, but still within normal range. So I guess I just have to suck it up and stay at this weight. I am so disappointed, but I don't think there's anything I can do about it.
