What the heck am I doing wrong
So this is my second go round with Medi.2 years ago I lost 40 lbs ( the 207 in my profile is where Medi counts me since that was where I was the first time I started)but sadly let most of it come back. I started back on August 22. I was 197 at that point. First week 6.2 second week 3.6 last week .8 , this week based on my scale and what time of day either 1.5 or 2.5 or gained .5 What the heck??
I am following the plan, weighing my food, and this time I am working out 3-4 times a week at a gym. When I am at the gym I do the treadmill for 30 minutes at 3.5 mph, then weights for about another 20 minutes. One day upper body next lower.
I am trying to drink lots of water but as a teacher it is not easy....
The ketostix have gone bad already, this happened all the time last time,never lasted. I was in ketosis, but added fruit last week, so who knows! The fruit BTW was 1/3 of an apple hardly a pint of ice cream!!!
I can see a big difference in my body, my pants are all loose and my arms are getting toned, I just get so discouraged because I read about these HUGE loses and really mine are not what I wanted to see.
I want to see big numbers too! I am turning 55 on the 10th of October :birthday:and would love to see the low 170's by then. Any advice?? Or should I just stop whining????
