I just weighed myself. 2 weeks ago, I was finally down 10 lbs. Now I'm back up 6 lbs.

IDK WTF is going on. I drink 8 cups of water per day. I've gotten better with tracking my food (please see my last blog entry about that). I exercise 3-5 times per week (unintended walking included) - yoga, walking, running, strength training, etc. I've gotten better with eating more fruits & vegetables. I rarely eat junk food; I rarely drink soda or any other sugary drinks (juices included).

I was so excited to finally have the chance to keep off the 10 lbs. and continue going down from there. I've been trying to lose weight for 16 f@#$#ing months now. I would've been happy with even 15 lbs. lost, but of course not because that's my luck. This is ridiculous and I'm about fed up. I'm pretty much in tears right now. I'm thinking about either doing Weight Watchers or dropping all of this altogether.

I don't want or need any chastisement or advice. I'm just venting. I'm seriously fed up. I've been understanding and patient for 16 months. WTF gives.

    Over 2 years later and yes - as you all suspected, it was a medical issue. Thanks again.

    I'm due for a full physical very soon and will have the thyroid re-checked. Every time I've had it checked, it comes back normal.

    I'm not as angry as I was yesterday, but I'm extremely annoyed. I'll go back to the gym tomorrow, kicking and f$%^ing screaming. :-/

    I agree with NHES220 that there might be a medical reason—thyroid or hormone-related. My sister in law struggles so much with her weight, despite working out almost every day. She is on thyroid medication, which helps a little.

    Sorry you are struggling. I was doing well losing weight on a low carb diet and was somewhat close to my goal and then gained almost 10 lbs. Yes, maybe I was not super careful about my diet, but I was not eating junk food and I was still working out. Now that I am being super careful and watching my calories and carbs - the weight will just not come off! So, I went and look at my last lab tests and realized my last thyroid level was much lower than my one from over a year previous - I am hypothyroid and on medication. The thyroid affects metabolism. So, what I am getting at - could there be a medical reason that you are struggling?

    I know your struggle. I've been going for a while, too - one year in July - and I've been on a rollercoaster ride of lose/gain/maintain for a couple of months now. It sucks, but I'm hoping with more changes, I'll start losing again. Good luck to you!
