So, my stats are all the same from last week which is BEYOND annoying! Best I can tell, I have reduced my daily caloric intake by 200-400. Additionally, I have added weight lifting and a daily 2 mile jog to my workout routine. Plus, I did a body cleanse...none of which have produced any results!
So, I spoke with my doctor who thinks I may have an under active Thyroid. I'm not surprised really. It runs on both sides of the family...yay genes! I haven't been tested since a few months before I got pregnant with Eli, so we'll have to see how it all pans out with this Friday when I go for blood work.
Otherwise, I have a new theory. We always hear stories of women who try to conceive a baby for years without success. Finally, these women adopt only to get pregnant almost immediately because the stress of baby-making is lifted. I think it's similar with weight loss. The more obsessed I am with it, the less I seem to lose.
I've finally had to accept that I am doing everything within my power to live a healthy lifestyle. I'm eating right, exercising, and drinking plenty of water. Beyond this, all I can do is accept my body and the freedom that comes from knowing I did the best I could possibly do.
I weigh in again tomorrow, so maybe my new attitude will bring success!!
