I lost but I am still mad

Friday, March 15, 2013

Okay so I weighted in this morning. It just barely moved this morning but I took it as a one pound loss ecspecially since I have not (excuse me for this) been to the rest room in days. I am so disgusted with the scale right now. I have been working out at least 6 hours a week for a while now and I still have only lost 6 pounds since New Year. I know the whole if you lose it slower it stays off. Well I beg to argue that point because let me have two weeks of not counting everything that goes in my mouth and I will gain all of it back. I know I am being negative this morning so I apologize. Yesterday i did not make the best food choices but I stayed in my calorie range. I went to bed hungry to stay in my calorie range for my weigh in this morning. I actually told my husband last night if the scale did not move this week I was going to eat like crazy today. I am just not seeing much scale progress and it is sad that I have to actually consider a bowel movement as maybe next week I will lose more if I could just go. UGHHH! I count the calories I burn and that alone should be giving me a one and a half pound loss but NO not on my scale.

I took my measurements this morning and I lost another 1/2 inch in the waist which is great if I could lose it anywhere else like my hips and rear so at this rate I have a 10 inch difference in my waist and my hips. Soon I will be disperportionate like a barbie except fat. Call me 40 year old barbie with zero metabolism. :(

It is so hard to stay on track with my eating when I never see progress. My husband said this morning he can tell a difference but I think it was only because he knew I was mad. He sees me get up one hour before everyone else in the house. He actually complains that I spend more time working out than with him. I will continue to trudge along and hope for a 2 pound loss again next week but have come to the point of thinking I will never lose 2 pounds in a week again.

Sorry to be so darn negative when I complained just the other day about negative people. But I guess we all have our days.

I do have to say I love working out and I enjoy how I feel after a good workout. So I will continue to do what I have been doing but I am hoping to see some scale progress soon. I was in a Biggest loser challenge in which I wanted to lose 20 pounds in 14 weeks. I have only lost 4.5 in 6 weeks of this challenge so I am seriously doubting my abilitiy to lost 15.5 pounds in the next 8 weeks. I will keep my fingers crossed for a miracle.

    change your perspective!

    are you healthy? that's worth much more than just being a few pounds overweight. I fluctuate around the bmi 'obese/overweight' border, but I feel a lot healthier than others of my age.

    be happy with your loss rate. it's actually quite good! whatever you do, don't rate yourself compared to the biggest loser! that's not a healthy way of losing weight. too much stress!

    speaking of which... there's an article here on spark about how stress can cause you to gain in the long run, which is why that would happen, just as you said.

    do the math... 2 lbs a month is still 24 pounds a year!

    so smile, keep on plugging, take it easy... but take it.
    you're doing just great.

    I know the nutrition tracker doesn't track dietary fiber but you may want to start tracking it yourself. I've had problems in the restroom area too until I saw that I was eating the wrong kinds of food (crackers, cheese, etc.) and I was way short on fiber. I shifted some things in my diet around and the problems eased up. I still keep fiber capsules in the medicine chest just in case. Fiber helps you feel full longer too.

    I am with COWGRLKT, don't give up because you are doing all the right things. I don't know how long you have been at your present weight, but remember your body has to really adjust to the weight loss process. Sometimes I just tell my jelly roll, "Hey I know you don't like it, but um, I don't like you!" I am a slow loser with spurts of measurable loss too. Hang in there sister!

    Have you thought that you might have gained some muscle?
    Weighs the same as fat but takes up less room.
    Also might be a plateau that you need to break through.
    Check to see if your calorie amt. is right for the amt. of exercise you are doing.
    Sometimes we have to up our calories a little.
    Hang in there you can do it

    Don't give up. You are doing the right things and it will go the right way. I know the slow is frustrating, but you are not gaining, you are losing, just slowly.
