I'm Stuck in a Rut

Sunday, April 22, 2012

I lost about 65 pounds in just over a year and felt pretty good about myself. I must say it was much easier this time than in times past. I didn't DIET i just started eating more healthy. Then over the holidays I gained about 7 pound. Now I'm stuck. I keep eating the right foods but I guess i'm eating too much because I can't seem to lose that darn 7 pounds. I really would like to lose at least 20 more so that I'm closer to normal weight. I've figured out that because of my body composition I'll probably never be in the normal range but I would like to get out of the obese range. I was there when I was down that darn 7 pounds. That's how darn close I am.

I thought maybe I'd start losing again when the weather got warmer and we were able to start walking in the evenings again but no results yet. I just started Coach Nicole's 28 Day Boot Camp video about 10 days ago and I'm burning a lot of calories and probably toning up but no weight loss. I know a number on the scale isn't as important as feeling good and living a healthy life style but I've been too indoctrinated over the years that the scale number is important.

I hope by putting my thought down in writing it will help me either be more determined to try a little harder to lose the weight or help me not worry so much about what the scales say.

    You're eating right and exercising so that scale is going to have to start going down. Hang in there and don't give up.

    You are very determined, so you will see the scales start to move down!! I often feel that the scale is my worst enemy!! Hang in there. Those 7 will be gone in no time.
