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.
