I have been doing everything right and the weight just is not coming off. Seriously, for the past three weeks, I’ve been working out A LOT and trying to keep my calories around 1500 a day. I’ll admit that in the first two weeks, they were probably around 1800 instead of 1500 but I would still think that would produce some sort of weight loss. I guess not. It’s like I have been losing and gaining the same three pounds for a year.
I just haven’t been able to hit the hammer on the head (nail on the head? Some sort of carpenterish saying) of what exactly I need to change. Whenever I read articles on weight loss, it’s like do A instead of B and you’ll lose weight. Well, what if you already do A? The only thing that I can think of that might be holding me back is portion control. I try to measure things but sometimes, like at work or when Jason is cooking, I don’t.
I’ll keep on it. There is no reason not to. I mean, if I’m not getting the results that I want from doing what I’m doing, I’m definitely not going to get them if I give up. I realize that but I just want to see a little result. Just one little itsy bitsy one.
Yesterday I did lower body strength training and ran 3.5 miles. Today I did the elliptical to sort of work out the tightness in my legs. It worked a little bit. This weekend is going to be difficult diet-wise. I’m supposed to do my long run on Saturday with my friend Joan who is running the half with me. But, afterwards there is this huge surprise 30th birthday party for one of my friends and I know that will mean trouble. I need advice for handling party situations.
