Dputman2's Journal, 20 February 2013

Today is the start of week 2. I am a tad frustrated though I stayed under 1500 calories last week every day as well as did a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio 5 times last week and I did not see any loss.
It frustrates me because I worked really hard last week and really pushed my self to work out a lot last week. I burned an average of 400 calories every workout last week as well. I know this is a process and will not happen over night but I need something to keep me motivated.and going.
210.0 lb Lost so far: 0 lb.    Still to go: 65.0 lb.    Diet followed N/A.

I can understand your frustrations and I myself has just joined a gym and started to workout regularly myself. I also attempt to stay under 1500 cals but one thing that has helped me so far (it's only been like a week) is that my personal trainer said that I could not step on the scale until our 21st workout. Therefore I spend every monday (my usual weigh in day) wondering how much did I lose. I now try to determine weight loss by putting on tight pants and seeing if they fit any looser. I also look in mirror a lot (which does absolutely noting) but I believe that once I stopped being a slave to the scale I started to eat right and workout just because I want to feel good and it was not about a number. hope this helps

Are you clothes more loose? Are you doing healthy things for your body and life that you didn't before? Are you drinking water? Google "why the scale lies" for insight in to water weight. If you are working your muscles extra hard they can hold on to water to help them heal. It's temporary. We also don't always see the results of this week till next week or later. Consistency is key! Try to think of the big picture (it's hard to not think about the scale all the time) and realize this is for life. You are learning new habits and they take time. Make sure the food you are eating is more whole food oriented and not just processed stuff. Processed foods contains tons of sodium. Focus on lean protein, lean dairy and fruits and veggies. Not all calories are created equal. If you don't notice changes in another week, play around with the calories. Good luck!
