So here I am, only five-six pounds lighter than when I started the "challenge".  Disgusted and extremely frustrated with myself, I'm feeling a bit stuck and in desperate need of a change.  72 pounds and it seems I can't lose an ounce more. The ball and chain of the scales feels tied to the scales heavy today.

I have added a third day of weight training/circuit class and I'm hoping to up my cardio.  Possibly food intake is the issue this time?  Regardless, I'm quite frustrated.  Yet, another goal passed unmet.  I was "supposed" to be below 200 pounds as of the 20th.  I'm 210.5 on one scale and 214 on another.  Maybe that's an issue in itself that I have two scales?????   

Also I just gotta get it out there.  I'm feeling a bit jealous of people going on vacation.  Don't think the fam and I are going  to have that opportunity this year.  Finances are a bit tight.  The house purchase still hasn't been completed and I'm just plain old grumpy.  Think I'm gonna go for a run and get my sweat on at a 9 o'clock open gym time.  Have a great holiday weekend.


  1. I so get your frustration... Here is a (((hug))). I was stuck for months and doing everything I could think of, then I switch diet plans and it made a difference. Maybe a switch is all you need???

  2. I just do a tiny bit of cardio almost every day, I kill it in the gym 2-3 times a week and every other day (almost) I just do a tiny bit ... 20 minutes on the treadmill while watching a TV show. A trainer once told me a tiny bit of something is better than a whole lot of nothing and it just stuck for me!!!
