What do you do when you are starting to feel like losing weight is hopeless? I'm not at that point yet but I keep asking my husband how come I'm not losing much weight when I'm eating right and exercising. I know its better to lose the weight slower because then you have a better chance of keeping it off but it just feels like the scales not moving. I'm still determined to lose weight so I'm not giving up but I do have that fear that one morning I'm just going to wake up and say screw it I'm tired of working so hard for nothing. I read other peoples blogs and I know I should not compare myself to them but they are losing 2 or 3 lbs a week. My weigh in is tomorrow and right now I don't even think I'm going to have a loss this week. I just don't get what is stalling my weight loss. I know as you get older your metabolism slows down but just a year ago I dropped 40 lbs doing Weight Watchers. I compare how I eat now to how I ate 2 months ago and it is a tremendous difference. Could it be the medicine I'm on, my doctor did do some blood work to make sure everything is working right but I haven't gotten the results yet. I'm going to call her tomorrow and see if I can find out. Its never been this hard for me to lose weight before. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome years ago but once I got down to a certain weight that didn't seem to be an issue anymore but I'm wondering if its not back now. I haven't had my period now in a couple of months but there is pretty much no chance that I'm pregnant because I got my tubes tied over 7 years ago. Maybe my PCOS is back and that can make it harder to lose weight. If I could just figure out what is standing in my way then I can change it but I have no idea at this point. I know that I'm not exercising as much as I should be but I've lost weight before without exercising at all. Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack as to what is going to work for me. I feel like I'm just being such a complainer but never in my life have I put so much into to losing weight only to get so little in return.
