Weight Loss Frustration

Good Morning Lovelies.

Today I'd like talk about an important topic to me: Weight loss.
It's no secret that a huge portion of my blog is about weight loss. You see this started last Feb when I decided that I wanted to go from 150 to 125 pounds. That's when it all went wrong.


This past year was my first attempt at going to a gym, changing my eating habits & really concentrating on dropping some weight. As you can see I've gained instead of losing. A whopping 25 pounds of weight gain! Now I'm not going to sit & lie saying I workout 5 days a week.. truth is I haven't been at all this week. Not once. Why? I'm so deflated by the fact that, I feel, I have worked to gain the weight instead of lose it. 

My sweet husband keeps reminding me that 'fertility treatments pack on the pounds'. yes, that sweet man... but that doesn't mean that my inner fire ignited to keep going. No, not at all. I decided that I needed a week to really get back into gear. I'm frustrated.


I have all but lived by this poster of motivation. I'm not giving up. I just need to know how my body loses. I have wracking my brain for a solid week trying to figure out what I did before that I'm not doing now. I looked so much better a year ago then I do today. It's frustrating. Due to taking meds to get preg I refuse to take a weight loss pill or a supplement. Why? I'm already taking a prenatal vitamin ~ what has more good stuff in in then a prenatal vitamin??

I have, honestly, really considered going vegetarian for a couple of months. Maybe that is the ticket? Maybe kicking this coffee habit is what will help.. I mean I used to drink smoothies every am instead of a pot of coffee. All I do is put creamer in my coffee.. I'm stretching here people.

So I guess I need to start over & try really hard to stay focused & keep going... right? I mean I don't have another fertility round until Jan so I have plenty of time to really really focus to do this. sigh. How do you keep going after you hit the weight loss wall?? How do you get your motivation back?

  2. It is so hard and the older you get the harder it is. Count your calories, see where you are eating you may be surpirsed.
