discouraged.

April 2, 2013 in fitness,postpartum,workout

It’s hard not to get into a funk when you find out that you’ve been working out and not actually losing any weight.

Especially when I felt like I had lost weight. I mean, the night before I told Chad that I was starting to feel a teeny bit better about myself.

And even though I’m the queen of believing you should judge your progress based on how you feel and how your clothes feel instead of what the scale says, it’s awful difficult when My Fitness Pal keeps telling me that I should be losing pounds, and I’m not.

I’m not going to stop. I’m going to keep at it. This baby weight will come off — and I’ll finally fit in my pre-baby clothes again.

But it’s going to be a lot more difficult, psychologically, than I ever anticipated.

if anyone feels your discouragement, it’s me! I lost over 100 lbs, and it didn’t fall off, and I hit many plateaus, and I still hit them. All you can do is keep at it, and remember that you are stronger than you think! Challenge yourself, beat your goals, it just takes one small victory to get yourself back up! You can do it!

Hang in there. Remember that it took a while to grow that baby & it’ll take a bit to get rid of the weight. It sounds like you’re determined which is half the battle! It took me a while before I could fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes. Things had shifted & my body wasn’t the same for a while. Maybe a year?? A little more, maybe?
