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!
