I should be happy, but I'm not!

Wednesday, April 02, 2008

I'm glad I don't have to weigh in on Mon. & Wed. anymore. It was hard to lose weight from W - M and not M - W. I keep thinking that I'm doing well nutritionally and with my fitness, but the weight is coming off so slowly! I know people will say that at least it is coming off. I thought stopping my medicine (which made me gain a lot of it) would make it come off quicker! I wish I knew what I could do better! I'm not sure I can exercise anymore than I am. What can I take out of my diet that's not working for me? If anyone reads this and would like to check out my nutrition and fitness, feel free. Tell me what I should change! I'll be brave and promise not to cry when you tell me how I'm screwing up : ) I do get sensitive lately and take things personally that I shouldn't! How the heck to the people on "The Biggest Loser" lose so much weight each week? I'm already in seclusion from the world. Now I guess I just need a trainer with me most of my day : )

    First off I want to say that you are doing AWESOME!!!! You have lost 20 pounds since Feb 10th!!! That's not even 2 months. If you want to bump up your exercise then add in some strength training. Light weights, up to 30 reps, 3 sets per exercise. If you can do more then 30 reps then bump up your weight. You will be creating small lean muscles, and those muscles will help burn more calories even when your not doing anything.
    Sweetie you are doing great. Just because you don't see HIGH numbers each week doesn't mean that nothing's happening. To answer your question about the Biggest Loser people, they lose so much weight so fast because they work out 6 HOURS a day and have a nutritionest on hand 24/7. If we could have all that then yes we would drop the weight like carzy.
    I am so proud of how you are doing. Please keep your chin up and keep doing what you have been doing. If you need to talk, or vent, or anything please give me a buz.
    HUGS,
    Nina

    awww, I'm so sorry, I never knew you were going through this! I'm always here for you, buddy! I know last week when I lost 5.5 lbs, I did one day on low end of cal's an next high end, then next low again ... I had read that this helps with shaking up your metabolism, and it must have worked!

    I'm still learning, but I will always talk when you want or need it, and we'll find the answer!

    Well, I can't say what you may or may not be doing right or wrong, but I think you should be a bit easier on yourself. You just have to continually, day to day, make good choices. That is the hard part I think. Making it a way of life instead of a race to the finish.
    By the way, I'm a johnny depp fan too!
