Being 49 and trying to lose weight just plain sucks.  I have been working really hard every single day.  I have walked my ass off.  I have watched and logged all of my calories.  And still, the scale doesn't budge.  I am frustrated.  Really, right now, what I feel like doing is eating some cookies.

Don't get me wrong.  I am not doing one of those crazy strict diets where I never allow myself anything that isn't "perfect" diet food.  No.  I am simply logging everything that goes into my mouth on My Fitness Pal and then, I am exercising.  Mostly, I walk, although I would prefer to run.  I injured myself over a month ago (while running) and now I just can't seem to shake the calf injury to my left calf.  So I walk.  Really hard.  For miles.  Everyday.

I just feel like I should at least see a pound a week.  I'm not unrealistic.  Nor am I expecting miracles and magic weight loss.  It's supposed to be all in the numbers.  Calories in, calories out.  I just don't understand why I can go for weeks with no changes in the number.

I am frustrated.  But I'm still walking.
