I try to keep the Dr's blog for moments of support and positive comments, however, I'm really not feeling positive and supportive so I hope you all don't mind me sharing my thoughts with you this way. I guess what I'm trying to say in a nut shell is I'm getting really discouraged ( trying really hard not to be ) I don't want to share this with my husband cause he is doing so good however, he is starting to see me struggle and is a little perplexed as well with my results (or lack of ) Last night we were discussing the 17 DD and he charts his weight loss daily on a spread sheet which looks fantastic for him !!! Me not so much, I started the diet Jan 25 and by Feb 16 I hit my 10 lb goal then proceeded to lose another 2.5 the following week, 13 days after reaching my 10 lb goal I have actually gained a 1.5 lbs back so really in 13 days my loss is only 1lb ??? I still have no intentions of deviating or giving up and that this point I have not cheated or even thought of doing so. My exercise is still on track and my over all well being is fantastic but what the hell ??? my cloths really don't fit any differently nor should they with a 10 lb loss well not enough to really get excited about. I take all the advice that is given and I keep saying to myself well its still a loss, and it is !!! but I need to also feel like something is happening thats why we are all on this. I asked my husband would you be just as motivated as you are today if you had lost 10 lbs in 36 days and his reply was probably not as much. It is so easy to stay motivated when the weight is coming off and to be able to share with others the success you are feeling, but what happens when that stops ? or you only get to experience that every couple of weeks ? Do we stop talking about it or blogging about it. We all purchased the book with the intent of losing weight, didn't we ?? I really don't believe that Dr. Moreno would of sold what he has sold if his book was strictly based on over all well being. For me losing the weight is most important, the well being will come from the weight loss.
