oh thats what restriction is ...

or is it... I managed 3 spoonfulls of vegtable soup, about 20mls of apple juice and 4sips of hot tea over 2 hours.... hmmm everything went down so slowly with some pbing... is that right?? will it get any better?

Maybe this is what its ment to be like bing banded and what ive had before was not restriction! which leads me to my doctors visit today....

Well I knew I hadnt lost a lot this month but to be exsactly the same on the doctors scales today as I was 4 weeks ago.. was totally disheartening and a little core shaking ... what the hell!!!!

I have started the interval running 4 times a week I am way more active... I dont understand it! Did anyone else gain weight when they commenced exercising??? My doctor said its common for someone my size to gain 2kg in the first month of starting exercise as you have incresed blood volume to fule your muscels and also a little fluid and eventually muscel mass.. he said if I stopped I'd loose 2 kgs within a week! but not to do that!!!!! arhhhh is this true!

He also told me someone my size shouldnt be running as its too heavy a movement on the joints and knees.. hmmm I told him it was interval and he was then slightly convinced that it was ok !!!

It amazing how much all of this affected me tonight when I did my 30 min interval training... I wanted to give up half way... I struggled with the running counted down every second... talked myself into believing what he said I shouldnt be running.. hell I am not loosing weight why bother... wow I got myself in a state... then I got it together and went 5 mins longer then normal! arhhh

so what to make of it all ..... ummm I still have no idea... what to put in my mouth hmm I still have no idea! and on that note I think I'll go to bed !

Wow - that's rough. I'd be tempted to believe him about the gaining weight. I don't weigh myself the day after I go to the gym as I always seem to be 'up'.

I don't think you should be pb'ing on liquids. If it doesn't get better you might need to ring your doctor.

Take care *hugs*

I usually just stay the same or gain a bit. Muscle weighs more than fat. Good time to take measurements as they will really show you the results. Feel you on the plateauing-I've been two months at the same weight and hate it. Fill coming up on Friday.

Take heart and believe him...if you remember when Catherine started bootcamp she didn't lose for 6 weeks but look her now!!! Amy W had something similar...perhaps you are going to go on and have amazing results like them....cheer up!!!

Be very careful with the pbing. If it does not get better go into see your dr. It is not good to be in the red zone. Causes more harm then good.. I too do not weigh in on a day after exercise..

hmmm.... I don't have any answers. I 've been working out 4-5 times a week and I am not losing any weight. Just got a fill so I am hoping that it will help... all I know is that I am in this for the long haul so I better just keep it up! : ) Hang in there!
