well.. just a little disapointed because I am still happy I have lost 20 pounds this month so far and I swear I can feel the difference.
I started on Dec 1 and almost as soon as I started limiting what I ate and started exercising the weight started falling off me. I think I lost 6 or 8 pounds the first week, water weight I am sure but weight none the less.
But it was a GREAT motivator and motivate me it did! I haven't missed a day at the YMCA since Dec 1.
For 3 weeks in a row I have lost 5 lbs or more and now....
I just did my weekly weigh in, well Friday is usually the day but I could not wait as I was excited to see how much I lost THIS week.
I stepped on the scale and... nada, nothing, zip according to my scale I didn't lose anything.
I haven't changed anything. I am calorie counting and have stuck close to my target which is 1600 calories a day and 45 minutes of cardio everyday.
The only thing different is that because I was so hyped up this week a few times I did cardio over an hour and a couple times went back to the Y at night and ran on the elliptical twice in one day.
I was SO hoping I would get on there and lose another 5 pounds.
Should I cut my calories a little for a while? Should I increase my cardio? I haven't started weight lifting yet but was going to start in a few weeks when my back feels a little better.
Or should I just keep trudging along like I am now? My gut instinct (pun intended! lol!) tells me to keep trudging along.
I have read a ton of info on this site and from what I read 1 or 2 lbs is the norm for weight lost.
I mean I KNEW I wouldn't keep losing 6-8 pounds a week and it was just because I am starting out but I don't think I am plateauing out yet because I just started.
And I know I just started so I shouldn't get stressed out about anything yet and I'm not... I was just a little disapointed that I hadn't lost any weight this week thats all.
