Problem to figure out.....

This weight loss process has been quite a journey for me.  I can honestly look back and feel proud of all of the changes that I have made.  I can honestly say that I have given up sugar, chocolate, junk food, and over eating.  And, this week I confirmed this by tracking my food in terms of weight watchers (WW) points.  My daily WW point allowance is 47 points.  I tracked my points daily and the range I am eating in is between 40-45.  So, I should be losing weight.  Sadly, I am not. 

So, what is the issue?  I am frustrated and upset but it goes beyond my emotions. Part of me would love to have a big emotional tantrum, throw my hands up, and pig out.  But, where would that get me?  I still have a problem that is keeping me from what I want.  I am following the Zonya Foco "Diet Free" program and doing everything that she suggests.  This program 100% fits into WW and this was proven by my tracking my points this week.  So, I just don't understand what is going on.

As I said I am so frustrated.  Every time I weigh myself and the scale doesn't go down I feel that is another day away from Karate.  But, with a 100% clear conscious I can tell you I am doing everything right.  I am eating lean protein, healthy fats, tons of vegetables, tons of water, a piece of fruit and that is it!  No sugar, almost no dairy, no junk, and what I believe to be appropriate portion sizes (I used WW points to prove if I was eating too much or enough).  The only thing that I can come up with is that I am allowing myself to have more carbs.  I've been having some carbs at lunch and dinner.  Maybe that is the problem?

So, if anyone has any ideas I would LOVE to hear them!

  1. I like to google "Daily Caloric Requirement for Women" and click on one of those calculators, then see where I'm falling according to my daily caloric range. They aren't perfect (believe me), and sometimes I'll be eating where it says I should be losing and I'm maintaining, but over time it tends to work out.

    That's all I can think of. I know it can be so frustrating!
