It has been much too long since I had a Mamavation post. A lot has been going - travel, work, camping, canoeing, etc on so yes, I have the "I am so busy" excuse. But it is more than that. I get tired of posting the same stuff every week - I work out, I eat well (about 80% of the time), and I don't lose weight. I try to act like it doesn't bother me, but it does. I do see changes in my body - I definitely am getting stronger (been going to Body Pump classes three times a week. Love them!) and my endurance is getting better and better - I am running 3ish miles at a time now. Though I recognize and love these changes - I still don't think it is "fair" that I don't have changes to the scale - and I am not being impatient, this has been going on for almost a year now.
I mentioned this to my new primary care doctor and I assumed I would get the same answer I have been told in the past - it is my thyroid issues, it makes things harder, I have to work at losing weight harder than the average person. However, instead of that he explored some other possible explanations to my stalled weight (which all indirectly involve my thyroid). So the jury is out on that - I see a specialist tomorrow to see what they have to say.
So I guess this is where I am at - I LOVE working out. I really do, I am seriously addicted and I am not going to stop. I also like eating healthy. It makes me feel good. However, I don't like not seeing the scale go down...ever. And I try to tell myself it doesn't matter (even my doctor told me - you are HEALTHY, that is the number one priority) but it still gets to me. So that is why I haven't been posting too much. I love reading and supporting all of you awesome women with your healthy lifestyles - but I sometimes feel like I am doing something "wrong" or something since I don't have changes in my weight. :(
