Anyone else frustrated?
So for the last month and a half I've been working out hard and watching what I eat. My scale refuses to move. I believe I have lost maybe 3 pounds. I am almost done with the EA Active Wii 30 day challenge and it is VERY intense. I know I'm building muscle but it is SOOOO frustrating to not be losing any weight. Some clothes are fitting better but I just feel like my hard work is going un-rewarded! Anyone else in the same boat?

Re: Anyone else frustrated?
This may sound dumb-

but track everything you eat- start a small journal & write down everything you put in your mouth-

this will do a couple things for you-

1) figures out if you are getting/sneaking in extra calories you dont realize
2) looks to see- maybe you aren't eating enough - which can happen!
3) it will also hold you accountable-

but yes- it is frustrating to do all that work & not see results-
{{ hug }}
If you want we can start a daily- what am I eating- thread - to hold each other accountable-

Oh I like the idea for the thread!!! :)

MEASURE yourself like once a month or every week, whatever will help. Make sure to change up your workout routine and food, your body does get familiar with routines. Maybe throw in a different workout once a week or two.

Thanks ladies!! You are totally right though, I did a calorie counter this week and it did make me realize how many "extra" calories I'm taking in by snacking on things I don't need! A daily thread would be awesome!

Stupid question, are you breastfeeding? That is what trips me up everytime. I am about as low as I will get until I wean CJ. I have just had to except it. But it sucks really bad!

You are so right! I am EBF and now I remember with my daughter that I hung on to about 10 lbs until she was weaned. It's so funny to me though because BF is supposed to burn a bunch of calories a day but it also makes you hang on to a little more weight, for me anyways!
