Low in motivation these days

Monday, May 13, 2013

So I have been back on spark since New Year. I have watched calories, worked out more, worked out less, cut carbs, do more strength training, do less strength training, etc. only to be withing the same 3 pounds I started at at New Year. Last week I just stopped. I only worked out twice and I really did not log in much at all. At one point I was working out an hour and a half a day 7 days a week. I have come to the conclusion that my body wants me in the 190s. I hate feeling this down about it. I have been a member for over 7 years now so I had heard it all from watch your sodium to stop working out so much. UGH. I guess today I am feeling a little hopeless in my weight loss journey. I stared back today with watching my calories. So far I have had one 100 calorie yogurt and a snack size clif builder bar. Hopefully I will see a loss this week but I am really not counting on it. Sorry for being Debbie Downer today. I am actually considering taking some sore of diet pill to help because I can't seem to find the equation that equals weight loss for me.

    forget the pills! won't work.

    this is the story of my life.
    but sometimes I do manage to get some pounds rolling. after two years of bopping up and down in the same 20 lb. range, I've decided to do 'atkins at night' and it's working. just reduce or ban carbs for dinner.

    chin up, we cats are the meowest!

    Oh my! Debbie Downer... you've been a member for 7 years. Does the number on the scale really mean anything? How do you feel? Energized, healthier, stronger than when you started. I'd rather be illness free than care about a number on the scale.
