I have a worse problem. I am really restricting my diet. I work out fanatically and am still gaining 1.5 pounds each month. Waaaaaahhhhhh!  I originally gained 40 lbs on prednisone but have been off it two months now. I try and try but I still am gaining. I feel so defeated. I would give anything at this point to lose 30 lbs.   My goal is 64 lbs. total weight loss. EEK!

@Lady Baker: First off, congrats on what you’ve lost so far!!! Trust me, that’s a lot of weight to lose, so don’t give up or feel defeated. Everyone is made different – different builds, heights, and weights. Obviously if you are shorter and more petite, gaining 10 pounds may look like a lot more than someone who’s taller and carries their weight different. Similarly, even though you’ve lost a lot of weight, you may have to lose more for you to see a ton of difference.

Don’t give up, and maybe try setting some small milestones so you can feel accomplished between the big goals. Do something fun for yourself every 10 you lose. Buy a fun new outfit when you go down a size, or go on a shopping spree once you get close to your goal weight.

Last, remember we’re our own harshest critics. I still feel like I need to lose more weight, while others tell me I shouldn’t lose any more. Even if you can’t see much of a difference, it doesn’t diminish what you’ve done. Keep going – think of every pound as getting the life you want to live and regaining the self-confidence you deserve to have.

P.S. When I lost weight my boobs got smaller. ICK! Whyyyyy. I have hardly no boobs as it is. I would much rather have lost that weight, say, around my middle. So annoying.

At 30 lbs of weight loss, you must have some clothes that are looser or more comfortable. Focus on how you feel when you can slide that zipper up with ease.

You know there’s a difference and soon others will too!

Congratulations on your weight loss!

I suggest taking a picture once a week to track your progress. I went to a personal trainer this summer and she had me take a picture once a week in shorts and a sports bra.. I was a little uncomfortable at first but at the end of 6 weeks when she showed me my progress I was amazed! You can take your own picture with a timer or have your SO take them. Stay motivated!

I take photos for every 10 pounds lost. It keeps me sane. I’ve lost 30 and some days I don’t even feel different, but I look at the photos and see the difference.

I have 100 pounds to lose, so 30 pounds seems like a drop in the bucket, but think about all of the health benefits that you are giving yourself. I bet your blood pressure has gone down if it was high. You probably feel like you have more energy. You are also reducing your risk for heart disease! So congrats!

Sorry you are not satisfied! 30lbs is a great achievement and you will get to your goal weight. Your doctor is totally right, slow and steady wins the race! Good for you on your weightless thus far. Just know, as long as you are exercising, and eating properly, you will lose weight.

Keep your head up 🙂
