Sometimes medical conditions (such as PCOS) make it difficult to lose weight even when we're obese. It sucks!
Other things could be going on. Is it near TOM? Drinking enough water?
I am going to get mad at you for a moment here. Since when does losing any amount of weight make you a failure? You came out at the end of this month 3.8 pounds less than what you were in the beginning. That sounds like a success to me.
If you'd like to compare yourself to other people, then let's: All those people who can lose faster than you? How many of them have gained it back and then some
. Where are you? Down 3.8 lbs. PERMANENTLY. Right? A year from now where are they? Perhaps they're thinking of starting over... again. Where will you be? If you "only" lose 3.8 lbs a month, you'll be 45.6 closer to your goal.
It's not about losing fast! That's the media talking! This is about taking it off and keeping it off.
You can do this
You're already 3.8 lbs closer.
And lastly, the pounds aren't the only thing that changes about us. I know that simply eating better & exercising more has me feeling like a million bucks! A year ago I felt lazy...sluggish... within days of changing my diet I could tell there were differences. Small, but positive. Take a look at what you've done. Are you feeling healthier? It all matters!
