Weight Loss Goal Update

So I am reaching a road block in my ambition to lose weight.  Not that I don't want to lose weight but it is so discouraging when the weight loss does not seem to be happening at ALL!!!  It is so frustrating to be doing all the right things, not eating junk food, not drinking pop, exercising, eating balanced meals and still the results do not come forth.  

I understand that I am not a 400 lbs person (friends if I ever get there please do me a favour and lock me in a room with only a mail slot to pass me carrots and water).  I don't want to die but I will obviously have a problem with food if I get to 400 lbs.  I understand that I may not see the results that the contestants on the Biggest Loser see in the first week, but I should be seeing some kind of results.  I just don't feel like I am seeing any.

Now with getting that out of the way, I am here to say that I am not giving up.  I am just going to up my conviction to this goal.  I am going to really start watching what I eat, and I am going to be exercising more consistently.  Harder work outs for longer periods of time with little workouts in between.  I have to lose this weight.  I want to feel great about myself again.  I did it before and I will do it again.  

If anyone has any suggestions or tips please let me know I will take them and adapt them for myself and my family.  Not only will I get healthy but my family will be healthy as well.  It will become a snow ball effect!!


  1. Sometimes the results aren't always in the numbers. Do you feel better, different? You have come so far and I know it will all workout in the end. Also, sometimes fat turns to muscle which causes the scale to stay the same or increase. Stay positive Jen - you can do it.

  2. I've hit that same road block after dropping about 100lbs. I have now started playing tennis hoping that a new activity will help kick start things.

    I have also got a referral from my doctor for an 8 week weight loss program through DTHR. So I'm hoping that will also help me along. Cause unlike you I look forward to the day of being a 400lb person although my ultimate goal is 300.
