Angry The last 12 lbs...

I'm so frustrated...I exercise, I drink a ton of water, I eat well and in small amounts...and nothing.

Maybe there is a genetic componant. There's the case of my Grandmother...the Doctor told her that she HAD to lose weight...she was lawful about it and went to 900 cals a day..and NOTHING! So she went to 600 cals and still nothing! Then she gave up...thought, I'm 65and I'm done dieting...went up to 1200 a day and lost all the weight!!

But still...I'm not going to use that as an excuse...I'm at the loss!

The glass of water is what it is,
it's only our own perception that tells us
whether or not it's half empty or half full...
it's a Choice!!!

I haven't had weight Loss surgery, but I can certainly relate to the last small amount to lose! I have been struggling with the last 5 pounds but I can honestly say that this week the reason for no loss was purely MY fault. I gained a pound last week for no apparent reason followed by another week of no loss because I was feeling sorry for myself and treated myself one too many times. So far this week I've been kicking butt and hoping to show a loss for Friday. I just can't let it get me down. I know I feel Terrific, and according to several people today at church, I must look pretty darn good...so I will keep on trucking, and I hope you will too. That darn scale sometimes can cause major depression, when our accomplishments have been far from menial. Chin up chickie. We will reach our goals and then some, and we have already won!
Highest weight - 333 pounds. Lost 193 pounds by calorie counting in 2008/09. Regained 73 pounds in the last 7 years and am working on getting back to a normal BMI.

You'll get there hon, I know you can do it. I remember being so close to goal and my body just loving where it was. Give yourself some time, it'll come off.


Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

Default So Sorry!

If I were in your position, which I hope to be someday, I would tell myself it's the extra skin that's the weight that won't budge and consider myself at goal!

I'll need a sugar daddy to pay for plastic surgery.

So, anyway, congratulations to you! You are an awesome loser and an inspiration to us all!
