No loss...just plain sucks!

Trying to think of a positive blog today---I don't have one.
Weigh in last week 229
Weigh in this week 229

NO LOSS

Nothing positive to say here.  Apparently I need to review my food log and be honest with any undocumented snacking because I should have seen a loss with 6 days of exercise.

Hey lady. Yeah, this sucks. I hate it when we don't see a drop. In all honesty, with my own personal journey [so this is just MY experience] it is all about my nutrition. If I am on point with my nutrition and calorie count, and I miss a bit of exercise, I am usually able to be on track with the losses, but if I am exercising all the time and my calories are on the higher end, I pretty much cannot exercise enough to exercise those excess cals off. I am not saying, by any means, that exercise is not important, because it is, but I have always found for myself, its more about the nutrition. Going over your food log is always a good idea anyway - it's good to check in! Keep your chin up girl, if you keep doing your thing, the scale will move. Hugs!

Yup, checking the food log is good and I love the phrase "undocumented snacking." This SOOOO gets me in trouble. I also like to think that a week with no loss will help me see a big loss the next week. Keep it up!

I'm completely with JRD, it really is about 85-90% about nutrition, sadly. I hope you see a big one next week. <3

Check the food log AND portions. See if you're being honest about HOW MUCH of something you're eating. Exercise makes us hungrier so even if we're eating the right thing, we may be eating too much of it. And sometimes we do everything right and it still doesn't move. Sometimes our bodies just need to catch up with the effort. Just keep on keepin' on. ((HUGS))

If you are eating right, and exercising, it might just be water retention from either time of month, or the increase/change of exercise (http://www.livestrong.com/article/406332-do-muscles-retain-water-after-a-new-exercise-program/). This is why I like to look at my own weight loss over a month, more than week to week, for a gauge of my progress. I always have a stall or gain mid month, then a good drop. Drinking even more water can help. xoxox

ps If you know all this already, and likely you do....sorry if it's annoying! I think everyone relates to the frustration of not losing when you have worked so hard. I feel so sure you are going to be posting a very happy post about your loss next week.....

It does blow. I didn't see the results I was hoping for either. I'd bet that next week, all that hard work will catch up with you and you'll see that loss! Keep it up!!

Totally sucks but I am seeing more and more that scales can't add up right away sometimes you need to give them a bit of time to figure it out.
Check that 'undocumented' snacking, keep at the exercise and you'll see a nice new shiny number next week. xx

The first week I started exercising everyday, I stayed even too. (last weeks weigh-in) But I am seeing movement again... hang in there... you will too!

ack! sorry :( I know that the one thing that does me in is portion size. After I went grocery shopping on Sunday, I opened up the bags of the "not to great" choices and divided them up into portions. Some were 1 portion, some were 1/2. I weighed my cheese, etc. I hate weighing stuff, but if I just do it once a week, I have better success. This week, my breakfast and lunch are portioned out ahead of time and my dinner is not.
