So, the scale says I’m up a pound this week. Good grief. I have to say this whole thing is so frustrating. I’ve been exercising daily and eating well. Basically, I haven’t lost a pound in two months. Well, actually, I’ve fluctuated up and down one pound for the last two months so the net effect is no weight loss.
I love the muscles I’m getting but aren’t they supposed to burn fat and make it easier to lose weight? That’s so not happening. I’m at the point where I think I need to see a doctor for a physical (hypothyroidism runs in the family) or see a nutritionist (maybe I’m not eating enough?). In any case, I’m not ready to give up. I keep picturing myself ballooning up if I quit working out and exercising. Not a pretty picture!
Today’s a running day. I plan to make my second attempt at run 5 min./walk 3 min. I’m going to change my route to a flatter one. I think the big hill at the beginning of my last attempt killed me.
Good luck to all of the HYCers!
