Break time

For the past 3-4 months I have been hovering around 195-196. I changed up my workouts and I was told by a metabolic and body composition coordinator to consume around 2,000 calories a day. For some reason my body, at least on the scale has not shown any degree of change. I am not going to lie to you, seeing other people's accomplishments, when it comes to losing weight is great but it also is rubbing me in the wrong way. How can this person lose weight every damn week and I have trouble losing a pound in 2-3 weeks. I work hard, I eat right, I drink lots of water. I try to make good and healthy decisions everyday. Don't get me wrong-losing almost 40 pounds in 8 months is awesome. I want to lose more though and for some reason my body likes staying right where it is. I feel like my hard work is not paying off. I know that exercising and eating right in itself is great for me but I want to SEE it. So for right now I am taking a break on my blogging. I will still be on twitter tweeting (MollyMFNitka) and my Facebook (FluffyGirl). I think when I hit certain goals I will blog about it, let's say when I hit 190. But right now, I need to figure out why I haven't lost weight. I realize people plateau. But let's get serious, a plateau for 4 months, something needs to change.


It's not good-bye, it's I'll see ya soon.

  1. Hi Molly,

    Sometimes there is more to the weight loss journey than just calories in versus calories out. Sometimes its about what makes up those calories we're putting in our bodies and what our body does with them. You are absolutely right - losing 40lbs in 8 months is AWESOME! You should definitely be proud of your hard work. I can relate to the frustration of slow progress I know it can get frustrating. If blogging pinches a nerve (especially the wrong nerve) than I think you're right to take a break. I hope you find what you're looking for in terms of change. Definitely feel free to chat it up with me anytime! I'd love to help you figure out what your next step is before you come back to blog land and tell us about all of your successes again!

  7. I've been through that lately, too, but every time I'm ready to lie on the floor, kick, scream and bawl like a baby, someone notices how hard I've been working, or a piece of clothing I forgot about finally buttons or zips for the first time in years. You can do this, dearie, and I sure as heck will too. I'm with you all the way, babe!

  8. I felt that way, too...worked my ass off to lose 2 pounds and I could put it back on in a blink of an eye. Then I tried the hcg diet. Amazing! Ha ha sounds like I'm going to sell you something. I was just googling for a picture of a scale and found your blog. Check out my blog.
    http://itzaroos.xanga.com/733081580/10-pounds-in-10-days/ I'm just starting a new round and hope to drop another 15 by Christmas. I just wish I'd known about this diet a long time ago...

    Good luck!
