Okay I know this totally seems like a whine, but I am sure someone else out there knows what I am going through and can relate. Hoping for some advice or maybe just positive words today.
I have been at this about 3.5 weeks now. The first two weeks I lost 5 and 6 lbs respectively, and last week things really slowed down. I lost a pound and a half. This week is really dragging also. I really just want to get to the -15 lb mark this week! If you look at my fitness, I'm getting plenty of exercise. Most days I stay within 1200-1500 calorie range. So it's not like I'm starving myself. I don't really want to increase my calories, I am worried I will not lose at all. I have noticed clothes are fitting more loose. Dress pants I wear for now require a belt, otherwise I am constantly pulling them up. A couple shirts that were previously much tighter on me are now a lot roomier. I know I am getting smaller but wish the scale would reflect it. I am not giving up, but I feel like I have a love hate relationship with my scale. I feel like I need to put it away and only use it on weigh in days. I am just worried if I am not monitoring my weight on a regular basis it creep back up. Although that is probably me just being paranoid. With how well I have been eating, and working out regularly I can't see that happening. I just want to be able to tell people I lost 15 lbs!
Thanks for listening, I know it's crazy, and that I'm being impatient, but I can't help it.
