Weight Loss

I don't want to turn my blog into a weight loss blog, but me trying to get healthy and into shape is a big part of my life right now. So I will be bringing this up from time to time.

I've been watching my eating and working out consistently for about a month now. There were 10 days when I didn't work out after I had my little foot surgery. Still I kept track of my eating.

I've lost 7 pounds. Which I know is great, but why haven't I lost more???

There has to be something I'm doing wrong, but I just can't figure it out. I've maintained my weight which is good, but I was expecting a little more weight to come off.

I lost those 7 pounds in just one week, and I was over the moon. I thought that set the pace really well and I was going to be continuing losing from here on out. Ever since that weigh in, I haven't lost any more. And I'm frustrated.

I know it's going to take me a long long long time to lose the weight, but me not losing any is making me feel like a failure and I should just quit. I get discouraged quickly, and it's taking a lot of me to keep this up.

I understand that losing weight has a lot to do with your mentality. Maybe I'm not there yet in my head. Maybe that figurative light bulb hasn't quite clicked on with me yet. Either way I'm getting annoyed and upset. I can't let this deter me! I will keep moving forward.

Any tips on how to kick start weight loss? Or how to get your head in line with your body?

If you get the answers, let me know. I do great for a week or two, and then I just go crazy. It gets boring.

losing weight also takes a lot of courage to pursue and great discipline to follow and long patience to wait to reach ones goal.

I have learned from weight loss shows that it is not uncommon to have a valley in weight loss. It is common to have a big drop and then nothing. The advice I always heard was push harder and stick with it.
