skinnygirl130's Journal, 18 July 2013

I have been back on a diet/workout for the last two weeks and some days have not been so great and I am having a hard time sticking to the diet plan.
I decided to try low carb and the first week I dropped 3 pounds and since then I am up and down ( mostly up ) in my weight.
The reason why I stopped my diet last time was it was just not getting anywhere and I just said screw it and I will be happy with my weight.
Well if I am not working hard to lose the weight I am gaining. There is no maintaining for me.
Last time I lost weight I was at it for over a year and a half and through blood, sweat, and many tears I lost 15 pounds.
My problem is I KNOW this is how my body runs and I am having a hard time sticking to something because it takes forever to get any kind of results.
Wish I could find a "diet" that would work fast for me. I don't mean lose 15 pounds a week I just want 1 pound a week. What is normal weight loss is all I ask.

One of the most important lessons I have learned on this weight loss journey is that I will forever have to watch what I eat. Think of yourself as a work in progress. You will have to constantly work on your self in order to make progress. Getting in shape takes a lot of hard work. There are no shortcuts. I have been reading reviews for Bob Harper's new book on Amazon. He wrote it for people who want to lose weight quickly for an upcoming event and says people shouldn't stay on it more than 3 weeks. Check it out. It might be the jump start you need and we can do anything for 3 weeks if we put our minds to it. Whatever you do to lose the weight, you need to be willing to keep on doing in order to keep it off. So it's important to find a plan you can live with.

I'm not looking for a shortcut and the last time I did a major diet/fitness plan I stuck to it for over a year and a half for very little results. I think it is hard for me now to stick with one plan for longer than a few weeks now just knowing that it won't get me anywhere for a very long time. I will have to look the book up. I love Bob Harper and so that might help
