No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
For the most part, I try to keep upbeat and positive on this weight loss journey. There really are a lot of positive changes that I have made that have me feeling great. But let's be honest--part of this "weight loss journey" is the actual losing weight part. There is nothing more frustrating than feeling like you are doing everything right, and the scale not budging. Since January I have been tracking every bite, getting in all my good health guidelines, and working out 5 times a week. I honestly can't think of anything that I can do "better" and yet the weight is just not coming off. I only lost 3 pounds in January (which happens to be the same 3 pounds I put on during the holidays). It is starting to wear on me. I am working so hard and not seeing the results I would expect to see. I know the scale doesn't tell the whole story, but my clothes really aren't fitting different either. Nicole posted about the same problem not long ago and committed to eating more this week. Did you see that she dropped 6 pounds by eating MORE? This has me thinking that I need to do the same. This weight loss thing is so complicated. Just when I get the hang of eating less, I am wondering if I need to eat more. I figure at this point, it is the only thing I can try since nothing else seems to be working. So this week I will consciously eat more--in a healthy way. I suppose this is a good week to try it out since we will be celebrating my husband, mom, and my birthday!
