Exclamation Am I the only one?

I am having a hard day. I just feel like I am working so hard for nothing. I know I have lost 14 pounds but the past 3 weeks have been such small losses. It is frustrating. My whole body hurts. I keep pushing myself and I calculate everything!!!! I forgot my lunch at home yesterday so I just didn't eat lunch. I wasn't going to eat out or eat something that was more calories than I plan for lunch. I am doing things the right way but it's just frustrating. I am sorry to be a whiner. Iam feeling as if it is pointless and I am losing my mind. Please tell me I am not alone. I am not the only one to feel this way. I get so annoyed and emotional when things do not go the way I plan.

Oh, it'll get better!! I promise. I feel the same way.

Like today we went out for dinner and I saw someone who I went to high school with. Needless to say, I feel like BEYOND crap. She looks amazing and she has had 6 kids!!!!

I really want to start going to the Y, but I can't get myself in the zone. I don't want to go by myself and workout with people there.

If you ever need to chat, I'm here

I'm so sorry you're struggling. I don't really have much advice, because it sounds like you're doing everything right. Keep up the good work, that darn scale has to catch up to your hard work eventually! HUGS!

Oh Justbe..... it truly is Not for Nothing that you are trying to lose weight. You are doing it for YOU and I don't know a more important thing to do for oneself.... getting healthier so you can live an easier life (can sit anywhere, buy clothes, not have higher ins premiums etc) but more important it is for your sense of wellbeing internally. I did not know that you had lost 14 lbs in 3 weeks... I mean OMG! that is just wonderful.... It truly is and you can congratulate yourself on that wonderful accomplishment.

Everone stalls or the 4 letter word that Lulu said PLATEAUs... It just happens. It could happen for a bunch of reasons.... but maybe our body is just trying to re=adjust itself to a lower weight and the cells are going "What is going on here??".. and I think our mind is a good controller about what and when we lose too. Love yourself and just tell yourself every day that you are doing the best to become the person you want to be. Just 1 day.... the next day is tomorrow

to you always! Justbe......

Be gentle with yourself. Small losses are losses. Every day that you have a calorie deficit is a day that you lost weight. Hang in there.

You can't give up NOW, JustB! The scale owes you!! The way I had to think during my slowed weightloss (and small gain, gulp!) was that I was earning credits even if they hadn't paid off yet. You have been doing everything right, it's sure to payoff soon!! Hang in there, you got this. And you got us too.

I think we all get that way, it's such a mental journey. Deep down I know what I'm doing is right but when the scale is a jerk face, it really puts a damper in our mind set, all I can say is I bet you have a woosh coming this way

Hang in there. I've been stuck for several months. And it's hard not to get down. I tell myself that maintaining at my current weight is still a victory. I'm not gaining! I keep working out, and can feel myself getting smaller, even if the scale doesn't show it. You are still in control. Just keep on keeping on! The weight will come off when it's good and ready.

Elvis: You are so kind and almost always bring tears to my eyes with your sweet and encouraging posts!!!

I am not counting on a whoosh. I am just hoping to not have a gain. I mean as frustrating as these tiny losses are they are better than a gain. I can say that I would not be able to do this without everyone here. The encouragement, support and even love I feel keeps me going. That is why I always post when I am having a bad day or moment. I know that there are people that care and understand that can help me get through it!

Just B, I am so sorry you're having such a hard time. Whenever I look at your profile picture my immediate thought is that you are such a happy person who would be a joy to be around. Wish I had the answers........but then I wouldn't need to lose weight, would I. Plus it would be real hypocritical for me to offer anyone advice tonight as I went out to dinner and ate too much and followed up with several spoons of peanut butter. It was like my hand was disconnected and did whatever it wanted. And yet in my mind, I know I'm on the right path overall. Just focus on the fact that you have been losing. Yes, we'd all like it to be much faster, but any pound lost (or for that matter, not regained) is a victory. Hang in there and look at that wonderful picture of yourself!

I know where you are coming from and it is super frustrating. But whatever you do, don't give up! Results will start to show, keep working hard and staying OP, keep exercise fun and interesting. Consistency does pay off, I've seen that throughout the entire forum!
