HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?
Friday, February 03, 2012
I started exercising 5 x week the second week in January.. I've been walking 5-10 miles a week, llifting some weights 3 x week, and I've been watching my calories, though I always seem to be hungry, and my calorie level is not that low. Still, I'm eating less than I was, so I'm wondering why I've seen absolutely no change on the scale, or, sometimes my weight even seems to go up? Why is it that when I start consistently exercising and lowering my calories, my body ignores my efforts? I know some people can get a virus or the flu or go to the hospital, and they'll lose 5-10 pounds, whereas I usually stay the same or my weight goes up. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? It's very frustrating.
That's why I get so infuriated when people say that it's as simple as calories in, calories spent. If only that were true! Why is it so much easier for some people to lose weight, and so much harder for others? What is with my body? I have a friend who eats constantly, eats stuff I would never dream of eating, never exercises, and she's always thin. HOW IS THAT FAIR? (Okay, I just needed to rant. I'm not giving up. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right?)
