I am VERY frustrated! I have been giving a HUGE effort and have yet to see any great results. I know that I have my weekend of learning which screwed me up a bit and then I had a shake made with almond milk that was NOT unsweetened (once, then I poured it and went to the store, I promise!!) So I dropped 3 pounds in the first 3 days and then bounced up and down (my weight, not my body lol) and today I am only down 1 freaking pound in total!! AAAAAARRRRGGGGGGGGG (sorry just had to yell it out)
Let me tell you a bit about me… I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 18 and this is what I am told… Lose weight and most of your symptoms will go away, sounds great right? WRONG because the other half of that statement is “Oh and the PCOS is caused by a severe insulin intolerance so you will most likely not be able to lose weight?, good luck! :) ” And the smiley face is for real, they actually smile when they tell me this, there are many profanities I would like to use but I will keep them in my head.
I am not a lazy person by any stretch of the imagination, I am training for a ½ marathon and a few mini triathlons, I did the MS Bike tour a couple weeks ago (183 KM in 2 days) and I am a personal trainer. I was very hopeful that this program would be successful for me (I’m not giving up yet!) but it is hard to stay motivated without the results. I am determined to make this week perfect (no “learning days”) and aim for some better results.
Thanks for listening to my rant and I hope you all are having a better go at this right now.
