You aren’t bothering us! This is what the bee is here for! I’m so sorry you are having a tough time and getting frustrated with your weight loss. Be patient, it takes time! I know how you feel about wanting to just eat when you are upset, I know it’s so hard to say no. I always feel so good about myself when I go work out instead of eating that crap food. Try and stay positive, you will get there! Just don’t give up!

I know it’s frustrating!  I’ve lost a total of 17 lbs now, and he’s lost 30.  Doing the EXACT SAME THING.  I’m lucky to drop a pound a week, his come flying off.  Not only that, but he’s had several days of eating fast food and bad things for lunch.  Stupid men and stupid male metabolisms.  What helps me is to remember that this isn’t a diet.  It’s changing our lifestyles for the better, and it’s a permanent change.  Permanent changes are slower, but they’re the ones that last.  What’s the point of losing weight if you gain it all back?  <.< and don’t judge me TOO much, but every time I see that he’s lost extra weight, I tell myself that I have excellent blood pressure, my fasting BG is excellent and my cholestrol levels are exactly where they should be.  His Bridal Party, BG and cholesterol are all high (which is why we’ve changed our lifestyle).  So I do my silent chant of “neener neener, I’m healthier than you”.

I would suggest not focusing on the numbers, but just eat healthy and do your exercise so you become healthier.  Thats the goal.  To be healthy, not to lose weight.

Plus, you lose alot of fat around your internal organs first, and that isn’t all that visible. But you need to lose that weight first.  Once you do, then the more visible weight lose becomes obvious.

Keep at it! Don’t let yourself get frustrated too early. It’s taken me 2 years to lose 20 pounds. Seriously. It comes off in 2-3 pound spurts every once in a while. Otherwise, I’m just a plateau. I’d like to lose another 15 before our wedding, but I’m not holding my breath. That said, I’m still working out every day and trying to be conscious about what I eat. I have mental tantrums every now and again about how much easier this process seems for other folks, but then I remind myself that I’m not them and try to talk myself into not comparing. Don’t give up!

Also, if you’ve been exercising, you’ve likely been building muscle which is WAY heavier than fat. It’s entirely possible that the fat you’ve lost has been replaced by heavier muscle. Which is a good thing!
