[QUOTE=ThatGurlD] JP, how'd it go with the trainer? I always hear about muscle confusion. You're supposed to switch it up every 6 weeks right[QUOTE]
One measly pound. That's all I lost. Blood, sweat and tears for 2 weeks for 1 measly pound. I am so discouraged I cried yesterday :( Trainer said it's harder for me to lose because of the medications I'm taking and age.
I see her every 2 weeks and she adjusts my workout. Sometimes it's subtle changes, sometimes it's an overhaul. I just paid for 7 meetings with a nutritionist to see if I can get over this (I had been following Weight Watchers to a T). These sessions are costing me a mint too. If I don't see better results soon, I'll be more likely to give up. I worked incredibly hard for such meager results. I'm contemplating a starvation diet. I'm supposed to go to the gym today and I don't know how I'm gonna haul my butt over there. I'm feeling low...
Three questions that pop into my head
1) Have you had your thyroid checked?
2) Are you regular?
3) Can your meds be titrated down? Are you following regularly with a MD so that you can be on the lowest therapeutic doses?
Feel free to PM if you like. Some things are pretty simple fixes if you know what to ask your doc specifically.
Your hard work will pay off! I know I lose in spurts. Tonight I'm eating a bowl full of air popped popcorn but what's the point when I melted half a stick of butter and use 1/4 cup of grated parmesan on it? Oh yeah, and red wine. HORRIBLE day at work complete with being yelled at by a doctor who was hell bent on discharging a patient who was NOT appropriate for discharge only to have my charge nurse agree with my assessment AFTER he was gone. Some nights I don't sleep well because of work stress and I have to find a better coping mechanism than alcohol and junk food!! My gym bag is packed and in the car but I drove right past it. It was all I could do to hold back tears today.
It's a lifestyle not a temporary fix. You win some, you lose some. There are good days and bad days but keep at it.
