Does anyone else do well all week long and the day before you know you are going to get on a scale you become the biggest skeptic? I found myself thinking about how insurmountable 17 lbs seems to be. I really wish that I wasn't so emotional about the whole weight loss thing. I am doing what I can, so why isn't that enough? I have been considering two workouts a day, but honestly, I don't want to spend anymore time in the gym.

I am a work in progress.

I weigh each morning knowing that during the week I am going to fluctuate by 3-4 pounds. Water changes mostly. I do consistent gym workout, 1 hr 30 mins of medium weights, keep within my RDI and keep carbs low but the weight comes off slowly and I have had lots of plateaus. I get allot of reinforcement from the results of exercise even when I dont lose. Feeling fit and strong is a reward in and of itself. I would not necessarily add a second gym session. You need recovery time between sessions to reduce cortisol levels and let your body recover. You will succeed, just stay on track and be patient.

Thanks Athensgym. It is always good to hear what other people are doing in order for me to press on and maintain sanity.

Bizzybee,I have been thinking the same thing! With me it is that I am eating less than 1000 cal. a day even way less most of the time. My carbs are always below 30 grams and I lost 1 pound since I started... I am wandering if the old saying is true ,if you don't eat enough calories your body will not burn the fat off,because your metabolism is not working good. Anyone else have this problem?????

Thinking in terms of short term goals helps me. I never try to lose quickly either because if I do then I know I will gain it back. Don't be a skeptic; You are a divine work in progress and You are beautiful.

I am pretty sure that if you eat too few calories your body will think it is starving and hold onto the weight rather than lose it.

Your words ring so true to me. I want to lose about 15 lbs. or so and it seems like such an impossible task. For me I started off the year strong, then got sick and got off the workouts, and kind of gave up for a minute. I'm remembering my ultimate goals though, and those aren't for just weight loss, but smaller pants sizes, being stronger, and feeling healthier. If I can remember it's not just about the number on the scale, that helps me stay more positive. It might take some time, but if you push yourself so hard that you quit altogether, you aren't doing what's best for yourself. Just keep being healthy and doing what you know is right for you. If you do want to do two workouts a day, then do it, but if you dread it and think you'll give up on everything because of it, then it's not worth it. You've got this!

No I don't have that problem only because I pack on the carbs and excersize and as long as my body knows it's getting a good RDI it will release the fat, but I have to be careful not to lose weight to fast because I know I'm losing lean muscle to and whole reason is to lose that grandfather fat and build muscle.Look don't be afraid to get into a whole new of eating, apparently what you and who ever else is doing the scale isn't moving for you so before you quit and start making up excuses for your pity party remember why you started.I believe in you all of you that you can be the body you want!
