What is the deal?!?!

Thursday, August 04, 2011


So, my last blog is titled, "I think I found my secret."

Well. Now, I'm thinking, "Not so much."

I am SO FRUSTRATED. But, maybe I am being impatient.

I have been working out to Turbofire. On week 3 right now, without missing a workout yet. Although I haven't done today's workout. Instead, I am on here right now typing away about how mad I am.

I have limited my caloric intake to no more than 1500 calories a day. I eat breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner.

I thought my secret was making sure to eat my smallest meal for dinner.

Well, I have done that ALL week. I have worked out, I have stayed 1500 calories or below AND I have eaten small, low cal meals at night.

I am really trying to only weigh myself on the weekend, but i've cracked with that this week.

So, last weekend I weighed in at 138.6 and that was with working out and EATING really whatever I wanted, not counting calories...going out to eat....etc.

I knew if I wanted to see loss, then I'd have to start getting diligent with my eating.

I just got off of work and I was having one of those weak moments where I was thinking, "Maybe I can just have some junk food tonight for dinner and be ok?" But before I made that decision, I decided to weigh myself. Just to see if my efforts so far this week have been working.



Ok, I know that it hasn't even been 7 days yet. BUT SERIOUSLY?!?!

I feel like if I am going to stay at this weight no matter what I do, then why bother with all this work!!!!!

I don't want to go on a no-carb diet, etc. I want to be able to "enjoy in moderation..." bla bla but maybe carbs arent my friend after all? Instead of giving them up all the way, maybe I should stay away from them at night? I thought weight loss was all about calories in - calories out. Ok. I can understand if I am working out and eating like crap that I won't see a loss...but when I workout AND count calories and still get the same results?? WTH?

Maybe I am over-reacting and not giving myself enough time.

ugh....just so mad right now.

Any comments on here would be appreciated!

    Stick with it, you just started. If you had a higher sodium day right before weigh in, that could affect your weight. Give it a good month, then reassess.

    I have definitely found that what I do one week may not show for 2 or 3! I did everything right two weeks ago and gained 5 lbs...don't exactly know why but I think it was because of the sodium I had the day before weigh in...of course I went back and said I could have done this or that but I still might have gained all because I had a ton of sodium the day before, and sodium I have found effects me A LOT!
    Like everyone told me when I wanted to give up...keep it up you will see a change :)

    I'm not giving in. I am going right now to put on my workout clothes and spend time with Chalene. Then eat a light dinner. I know if I do that, it will rest better with me than if I skip the workout tonight and go get a pizza!

    So basically you are telling me, that I'm not doing anything wrong. To stick with it and give it time. I can live with that.

    If it was just last week that you were eating poorly then the unfortunate truth is you're not done seeing the ramifications. You don't gain or not lose or whatever is going to happen from food the minute you eat it, or over night, or usually even within a couple days (with the exception of bloat!). It takes 1-3 weeks for your food to affect your weight... I tried to find the article where I read that to link for you, but I can't remember if it was on SP or elsewhere...

    All good things to those who wait!
