So I just weighed myself for the first time in about two months. In the past two months, I have upped my thyroid medicine and also increased my cardio. I also thought not being chained to the scale would really help in some way as well. I figured my weight would be down like 5 pounds- ish, no such luck :(. It was down about 1 pound. I know, I know one pound is better than nothing, but I still feel like it should be better. I also know my muscle mass has increased, so I probably lost more fat but it is still really disappointing!
Well, I already knew that I have been snacking too much and that I need to control this with a food journal. But I have been adding in a lot more veggies. But I was also trying coconut oil in cooking and making protein chocolate, but maybe that does not agree with my body? I think I also need to chang up my workouts. I need to add more cardio but also some weight training. I am thinking I need to buy The New Rules of Lifting for Women. Any suggestions?
UPDATE: So, this is all I have been thinking about for the last hour because I am really disappointed by this gain. I think I need to phase out nuts and coconut oil, I do not think my body can handle the fat. I also think I need to go back to measuring everything I eat. In the past couple of months I have changed birth control and all of my hormones have been really screwed up, but my doctor says I need to stay on it for 4 months before everything is regular (it has only been 2). I wish I could just get off BC all together, but due to my PCOS I cannot 😦 , I do not get my period if I am not on the pill. When I was losing weight, I was using Splenda instead of Stevia, I wonder if my body could not handle the Splenda and just did not digest it. I just don’t know. Sorry for the negative post, I just do not know where to go from here, I feel like I am doing anything I can.
