Just saw Karen the nutritionist. I had a pretty good week, both in regards to food and exercise, so I was hoping to be down a couple pounds. After four weeks of staying steady, and not losing anything, I was hoping to see some results. And I did. When she weighed me I was down by 2 pounds. I was so thrilled about that. 2 more pounds to go to be down a stone, that’s 14 pounds in total. Its great to be seeing results again. I think increasing the exercise really helped, as well as eating more fruit and vegetables. I couldn’t believe I’d lost weight, since I had my cousins 18th birthday party last Sunday and I’d eaten a slice of cake with cream and chocolate in it. Other than that though I hadn’t really had anything bad this past week. It feels good to be back on track again.
saw the nutritionist today. She weighed me. i’m stuck at the same weight now for the past 2 weeks. I cant believe it. I’ve been working so very hard. Eating right. Exercising. Doing all the right things. And this week I didnt lose a pound. Its so disheartening. It makes me want to bawl. I’m so very disappointed. It is so very hard to do this weight loss programme. It triggers all sorts of things around food, eating, and it also triggers tons of emotional reactions. The nutritionist said I am doing great. Keep it up and dont lose hope that next week I may see good results, that sometimes it takes a week or two of staying stuck before your metabolism moves again and you start to lose. She was also saying I am building muscle. That doesnt help me. Right now I dont care I just want to see the result on the scales. I feel like crying. I dont know what I need to do because I’ve been good with my food and exercise so what more can I do? Increase my exercise? I’ve been doing 15 to 20 minutes on the treadmill most days. Just feeling irritated and disheartened about it. I kind of feel like quitting but I know thats just my irrational brain talking. It would be terrible if I quit now and undid all my hard work. At least I didnt go up in weight…thats one positive.
