Beyond Dissappointed

Monday, April 11, 2016

I stopped by my doctors office today on an errand. I hopped the scales. I weighed what I weight at home - no big deal. When I got a minute i logged into my online patient profile. I was crushed. Between Last June and now the numbers say I have only lost 12 lbs. I was weighed at the Hospital in March of 15. which is my starting weight. I thought i was down 38ish lbs! June of 15 was an office visit. and then this morning. Is all this really worth it. I have been since the first of August of 15 taking 500 - 700 calories less than my maintenance - my differential daily averages a minus 900 - MINUS 900 . Even Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter were still right at my "maintenance" calories. In December I added going to the community center walking... my hip hurts.. so i ponied up for the gym and for 3 months i have been there at least 3 if not 5 hours a week. TWELVE POUNDS. WHAT THE H E DOUBLE TOOTH PICKS I have been weeks trying to shake this last plateau that I THOUGHT would get me beyond the 40 mark and on my way to 20 more down... TWELVE. I am beyond disappointed. So much effort, so much hope and dedication ... and T W E L V E. And it is a rainy day where it will be a struggle to keep a good attitude and want to push at the gym. It may take more than my dream of a new life, It may take more than a village, I dont know what it will take. I am wearing clothes 2 sizes smaller almost 3.. I know all of this is about living a better healthier life, but i was really feeling it for the new/old me... Stomping off, mad... TWELVE.... aruuughhghh.

    12 lost is better than none, but if you were expecting more it can be disappointing all right! Are you sure you're logging calories and not missing any? Did you talk to your doctor while you were there are about that expectation? Good luck. . ☺

    It is extremely important to take many measurements. Too much faith in only one spells disaster. Get a measuring tape or start keeping track of resting heart rate. Weight is a very unreliable measure, it's good to have a few things to monitor change.

    You have been working out. You are building muscles and muscles weigh more. If you are down 2 to 3 pant sizes then you are doing awesome. Try to not go by weight but get a tape measure instead.
