how why when woe!!!

Thursday, July 27, 2017

I am officially and legally changing my name to "EVEN STEVEN STUCK"!!
Personal rant ahead, proceed with caution!!!
I am incensed, disappointed and perplexed!!
I worked hard this week, I walked more steps per day each day, I kept track and pushed myself to get in a little more each day.
Counted calories and carbs and stayed at or just under calorie range each day.
And what did it get me.....?
Less than half a pound on the scale!!
Yeah yeah I know, we arent supposed to JUST go by the scale, there are other factors, yada yada.....but I wanted that fricking number!!!
I worked hard for it.
What am I supposed to do????
Work harder? Eat less? Count more?
I dont know what else I can give up at this point.
I am getting my fiber. I am taking my vitamins, going to bed early to get my sleep.
I have even given up my coffee creamer!!
No real change this week. No just hard work that I didnt get paid for.
Dont worry, I am not giving up and I am not going to hit the fridge....or the fast food drivethru.
But its defeating and it takes something out of a persons heart when they cant get beyond this number.
I just dont think this is ever going to happen for me. Without weight loss surgery I dont think I will ever even lose this eight pounds to get back to my low number.
And I really really really DONT want to have to go thru surgery.
I just want to be happy in my body and I want to be healthy, in both my body and my mind.

    I know how you feel - been stuck at my current weight for over a year! I eat well everyday, work out 3-4 times per week ..and ....nothing.
    Hang in there, you are getting healthier and it will pay off - maybe not as soon as we'd like it too!

    Stay off the scale. You'll be a happier woman for it. Anyway, it's more than likely you're dealing with some fluid retention.

    Don't be so hard on yourself. Any amount of weight loss is good. I will be happy with 1/4 of a pound, or just to remain the same as long as I am not gaining. Give yourself a Pat of the Back for doing all the right things. The results will come. emoticon

    Good morning. 😊 You're probably building some nice leg muscles with all of that working out. I'm stuck on a plateau. Stick with it...don't give up...you will be victorious!

    Never give up or quit. I have wanted to quit so many times and I am not doing as well as you. I stumble and fall. I see gains instead of losses. Heck I bought a new scale and got slapped with a 20 lb. Gain. Wow, I had worked hard for that 20 lb. Loss. Months of walking, tracking food and exercise. A 5 lb. Gain would have been bad enough but 20 lbs. I wanted to cry, scream have a real fit but it wouldn't change a thing. So here I am struggling trying to lose the weight I thought I had lost. It hurts. But I won't quit. I will not have a surgery for something I did myself. I will beat this d--m weight.I will not let food or fat control me. I WON'T!!!! Come on we can do this.
