Emerald17's Journal, 16 April 2018

Day 8....skipped a few days due to kids having the stomach bug and and then having to go to the doctor again the following day because another child injured himself during practice. I walked as much as I could on Saturday, but was exhausted. 2 football games friday night, and 5 soccer games in a row on Saturday. Today was a confusing day. Doctor says I have something called "Adrenal Fatigue"....and that working out too much is actually hindering my weight loss. I'm supposed to get my adrenals functioning properly again before I see any weight loss. This is absolutely frustrating. She told me to just stick to walking and slowly move up into light weights...but to not over-do it. I don't see how I'm going to lose weight by just walking! I'm already not losing weight running and lifting 12-15lb. weights! I feel like I'm never going to get back down to the size I want to be. :( I also feel like being "diagnosed" with this is just another excuse, and that this isn't even a "real thing". Yes, I've been researching it....but no one I have spoken to (friends and family) even know what adrenal fatigue is! Of course, that just made me push myself harder, but the doctor says I'm not helping myself by doing that. She says I will have a very hard time losing weight if I don't get my adrenals back in shape first. Is anyone familiar with this?

I'm in the same boat. I weighed less a month ago but I do know that I have extreme adrenal fatigue. The power workouts are not your friend because they inflict too much stress. My steessful job is my issue for me at the moment. I saw a very good video on YouTube by Dr. Berg titled Get Healthy to Lose Weight. You might enjoy watching it.
