It’s been 3 weeks and I have not lost a pound! One week was vacation, the next a family friend died and a major outing. That is a lot when you are disabled, but not an excuse. I am just so tired physically, spiritually and emotionally-and then I didn’t lose any weight! Argh 😤! Oh well, I still have my God who never leaves me and a husband that loves me. I will keep blogging my meals, trying to incorporate exercise and doing the best I can with God’s help. I was just looking forward for some encouragement at the scale. I know I can improve my food choices and push myself to exercise more. Next week at the scale will hopefully bring some encouragement. PS I know in my heart that I need to give up or greatly limit carbs, but that is what I like-what tastes good to me. Sigh! Is that what is called wanting my cake and eating it too?! OK! no more whining!!

    Sometimes that happens! I hit so many plateaus over the past 9 years! Have you taken your measurements? That would be a good idea, because sometimes you can lose inches and not pounds. That has happened to me. Try some chair exercises, they have a lot of Youtube and here on SP. That was my go to exercise in the beginning and still is. I lost 103 pounds doing them, so they do work. ST is a good thing too, light weights like 2 pounds to start off with and SP has videos for that too. I have a link to Amazon, on my latest blog of a small cycle that you can use on your arms and legs (I got the idea from Indygirl, who used it). I have used it for years and it helped me immensely after my shoulder surgery this past year.
    Every little bit helps get the scale to move. Also, Reduce your calories a few hundred each day....anything you can give up. Get off the condiments if you can- they add SO MUCH to your daily calories.
    Just keep at will happen. emoticon

    You might want to read a book called Food Addiction: The Body Knows by Kay Sheppard
    Hope your energy returns soon. I so understand getting around being hard work and the exhaustion that comes with it.
    Take care.

    The scale can be a stingy companion on this journey. A vacation, the loss of a friend and a major outing could have easily moved the needle higher. You have been dealing with a lot and sometimes that affects the journey. Be proud that you kept on going. Let the fact that you have persistence be this week’s reward. You deserve a reward.

    Personally, exercise helps me maintain flexibility, agility and mobility, but the food is what makes a difference on this journey. Maybe some tweaking can help. YouTube has wonderful documentaries on whole food plant based by doctors John McDougall, Neal Barnard, Caldwell Esselstyn, Michael Greger, T.Colin Campbell and others. Best wishes.
