Losing Weight, Wk 6 (**STICKIED**)

Hey all, well going into the 7th week of my weight loss program, and I am still extremely frustrated. I still haven't lost a pound, and I don't feel like I've taken any inches or centimeters off of my weist. In fact, yesterday was a particularly bad day. I have these pair of pants that fit me just fine before I started working out, when I was a few pounds heavier. 6 weeks after working out 6 times a week, cutting out all bad food and soft drinks, and what do I get in return? I put on the pants, and I could barely button them!!! It was as if I had gained weight!! I actually ripped the pants off of me and threw them at the wall. I was just so pist that I didn't speak with my husband for hours. I was just so ashamed. I don't know, more so, I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. My husband hasn't really been working out, but ever since we cut all the bad food, he's lost weight. I mean, what the hell?!? Why do I feel like I've put weight on?!? At the very least, even if I was gaining muscle, therby not losing weight, wouldn't I still be losing inches?!? Uch, I don't get it! Sorry I've written in many exclamation points, but that's how I'm feeling right now. Some-body help me. I'm so frustrated!!!

Don't worry. You could be going through all sorts of changes in your body and not be seeing any of it externally. Two years ago I quite smoking, started working out again and lost 40 lbs, but there wasn't much improvement for over a month. These are some tips: You might need to excercise for longer periods of time; you might actually need to eat more- try lots of fruits and veggies, and last but not least, since you are female, women tend to retain water at various time of the month so you might not be seeing the improvement "this very day" but it might show up in a few. Hang in there.

Hang in there! First of all forget about your husband losing more weight then you. He's a guy, our bodies are different. We lose weight alot easier then you do. Secondly, aboout the pants, you probably were just having "one of those days". You know the kind where nothing seems to go the way it should. It might help if you stopped going on the scale for a while. I think you are beating yourself up over the fact that you havent lost weight yet. Just stick to your diet and keep on excersizing. Dont go on the scale or measure yourself for a week or two. Then try again. I am sure you will be very happy with the results!
Gaining muscle does not mean getting thinner necessarily. You can be toning your muscles and that might be why the pants didnt fit.
Either way the main thing is to relax. Take a deep breath. Know in your mind that you can and will lose the weight. Just try to not think about the inches or pounds, try to think about the lifestyle you want to have. You want to be healthy, active, toned etc. If you eat healthy and stick to the diet and excersize it WILL happen. It might take some time, but if you want it bad enough you will see results.
Good luck again!

P.S. I gained back two of the eight pounds I had lost. But I know its because I have been to a lot of weddings - parties recently and gave in to temptation. All I have to do is remember what it is I really want, which is to be healthier. I will lose those two pounds and then some.

Keep your chin up! You can do it!

Thanks for all your support guys. You don't know how much I appreciate it. I'm just trying to keep plugging away. It's just that I've been reading other peoples' success stories and how they started seeing changes in their body after only a few weeks, and I keep thinking to myself, "What am I doing wrong"? I am actually thinking of going for a complete physical to see if my thyroids are acting up, or if there's anything going on in my body that is inhibiting me losing weight. What do you think about that? Should I do that? Thanks so much. You guys are amazing!!

Going for a physical is never a bad thing, so why not go for one. Do you have reason to believe your thyroids are acting up? Whatever the case is, if your physical comes back with no issues, as we hope it does, dont get bummed about it. Everyone reacts differently to weight loss. It might mean that you have to put up with not "seeing" the results right away, but you will definately feel it and eventually you will see it too.
Be strong! You can do it!

Heya Timmy from the French Hill!!

:)

Keep up the good work with the program. 7 weeks is fantastic, after you have managed to stick to a routene for a couple of weeks the rest should be easier. If the results are not coming straight away, give it more time or make minor ajustments and see the effect... simmilar to cooking, experiment a little to find what works best for you and your body.

(I don't really have a clue what I am talking about, I am a underweight skinney boy who is in need of improving his lifestyle... but what does that matter?!!)

Your comments on Saba's blog were excelent. :) And thanks for the comments on that discussion page. That one is going to be HARD work! Did you see what that guy posted?! I am going to avoid it until I have the energy to write him a proper reply.

You asked me what was my connection to Israel:
I am Jewish. I have always considdered myself to be an Athiest Jew, however this concept is being challanged. I have family in Israel, and some family that died in an attempt to get to Israel. These reasons, however, are not why I have such a deep connection though, it is now almost like a physical bond... if that makes sense. I dont think it makes sense, but that is how I feel- just like it is written in the Hatikva.

I am planning to get an Israeli citizenship, but not on moving to Israel. I wish to finish my degree first so that I can be more useful to the people of Israel.

steven, you're referring to my husband's comments. I'm his wife, writing about my weight loss program. I know my husband is very witty, so I'm not surprised at your comments. And, I totally understand what you mean about your connection to Israel. All Jews are supposed to feel that way. You're on the right track.

:) Your husband is doing an excelent job providing counter-points to a politically active ProPalestinian girl in Canada. Keep up the good work on the programme. :)
