Well we have another loss. A small one at that. And I have to admit that I'm frustrated and discouraged. I know all the facts, I could plateau, altho from what I know about that, I don't' see how that could happen, I add to my cardio, I've added weights to my regimen and I don't do the same thing every day. But I've had at least 100 people tell me that since April, so I know it could, (said dripping w/ sarcasm).

I also know that since I've added weights, muscle weighs more than lbs. what I don't' get is that I'm still doing like 25-30 minutes of cardio a day, how am I not still loosing?? I guess I'm just impatient. I only started the weights about a week ago. Which doesn't make me feel any better b/c that still says to me that I only lost 1 lb in 2 weeks. 2 lbs in one month. I'm ticked. I worked really hard the last 2 weeks. I guess there are a few possibilities, that I have gained muscle, that b/c I am working o/ more, I need more calories, which is scary, that I just need to be patient and let my body catch up w/ me. I feel like that girl on biggest looser last night who said she was the last one in the gym at night and the 1st one in the morning and she only lost 4 lbs.

So be patient w/ me please and let me vent. And don't worry, I have come too far and have too far to go to give up.


  1. That's what happened when I went to the gym. I religiously worked out 4 days a week for 40 minutes and went UP a size.

  2. I've had several plateaux, and I'm in one at the moment. But I did stay stable over Christmas, which was quite an achievement, I think, so I've just got to get things moving downwarda again now.

    It will come, Kris, don't worry.

  3. Thanx val!! I'm pretty much confused at this point as to what to do. I've added some calories and am adding 1 different workout day to what I do. we'll see. well done staying stable over christmas, that is an achievement!!-kris
