I could have written this post myself! It has taken me 8 days to lose 2kgs, and the scales go up and down every single day. I had someone recently tell me, that if I wanted to weigh in every day, that I had to except rises and falls which are completely normal for the human body.
I am trying to avoid processed food. I eat no bread AT ALL, not even wholegrain, but then again, I am not a massive bread eater at the best of times. I do eat chocolate once a week, but no more than that.
I have often cried about the very thing you are going through. Like, how is it, that when I eat what I want (including hot chips on town day, cake and bikkies) I happily maintain my weight at 84kgs. I mean, I dont' lose any, dont' gain any. I realize that the food I serve is good. I dont' have lots of crap in my house, I eat mainly good food, but I really overeat most nights, having seconds of the meal I have cooked, or having huge portions. Now, even when I excercise like a trojan (weights and cardio), cut my calories in half, take my protein powder, and drink my water, it still takes 8 days to lose 2 freakin kilos
. It's enough to drive you balmy! I also think often, that my body just LOVES being 84 kilos!!
I think what I have realized is this. I only ever stick to anything for a short time. The key I think is CONSISTENCY and PERSISTANCE. Don't give up. That's the bottom line. JUST DON'T GIVE UP!
Look at the biggest loser, some of them are working out 4 hours a day and still only losing a couple of kgs a week!
Be patient. It will happen.
Also, it can take your body sometime to kick into 'fatburn' mode. I think it tries to really hold onto those fat stores, and you have to convince the bugger to let them go!
Hang in there buddy, you'll get there.
