Feeling a little disappointed…

So, I’ve been at this for a few weeks now, 2 months from when I came back from Disney, strict fitness and weight loss for about 3-4 weeks of that… And I feel like I’m stuck. My starting weight was 157 lbs, and my starting body fat was 35%. In 2 months I’ve lost 7 lbs and 4.5% body fat. Which is awesome, however in the last week and a half or 2 weeks I haven’t lost a pound! And I’ve only lost .5% body fat in that time! I feel like I’m busing my ass with little result. Its really disappointing.

Food wise I’ve been eating pretty healthy, I mean my calorie counts over the last 3 weeks (thanks to livestrongs – the daily plate for making it an easy comparison) has only ranged from 900-1500 calories, with only 2 days being above 1350! And those 2 days happened to be a family bbq and a special night out with the family to Outback steakhouse… And most of the days my net calories are anywhere from 700-900 calories after working out, minus my days off which are still in the 1000-1200 calorie range… I feel that with keeping track like this and being sure to put every little thing I put in my mouth on here, keeping track like no tomorrow, I should be dropping weight super quickly, and unfortunately I’m not.

I’ve noticed that I like working out 2 day on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 1 day off, and I’m trying to get passed that to doing 6 days a week. Its been hard to but today is day 5 for this week! Although yesterday I only did a 20 minute work out, i figure 20 minutes is better than nothing. I’ve maintained doing my fitness DVDs, which kick my ass every time I do them. “Burn It Up” by Slim in 6 is a staple and so are The Biggest Loser “Cardio Max” and “Boot Camp”. Every day I do them I’m sweating within 10-15 minutes, and I keep that up for 50minutes to an hour!

I’m just really disappointed that I’m not losing weight as quickly as I feel I should. I’m still not down the 10 lbs I bet my boyfriend I could be before him. Granted he isn’t either, but I really want to be the one to pick where we go on out “first date” back together after being apart for 8 months. And after 8 weeks of working at it, and 4 weeks of that, kicking my ass, I feel I should be there already. I’m not going to stop at it, I just need to re-evaluate the way I’m eating and the times I’m working out and adjust to make this a more successful fitness plan. Today so far has been an excellent day with an 80 minute cardio kick, doing both burn it up and level 3 cardio max! I’ve also eaten very healthy today with protein powder oatmeal for breakfast and lunch being turkey lunchmeat and a slice of cheese. Dinner I’m unsure about but I’m determined to make it a healthy option!

Wish me luck.
