Confusing and Hard

I am going to rant and vent here for a second!

Weightloss is SO confusing and hard!

They say just burn more calories than you take in - not true - I burned over 3000 calories and stayed under my calorie goal and was between 1600-1800 calories/day!

They say don't eat too many calories.  They say don't eat to little calories.  And yet you see people using programs that take you down to 500-1000 calories with people having AMAZING results. I even personally know some of these people and I am so proud of them, but restricting down that much is not in the cards for me.

There are calorie calculators that say eat this many calories to lose weight.  I do that.  I follow it all. And then I have no loss.  I don't know how to do it!  I don't know how you all do it!

With the calculators they say choose if you are sedentary, active, moderately active, etc.  Who is to say that?  Who says if I am sedentary or active?  How do I choose? Some days I feel like I am so active and other days I sit at the computer all day every day and the only activity I get is my workout for the day!  How do you balance that?

They say you're eating too little, you're eating too much.  They say drink more water, cut out soda, don't eat out.  I tell you what!  I don't drink soda EVER!  I don't eat candy, well, sometimes I do, but not regularly.  We NEVER go out to eat.  I promise you, my family and I eat out about once a month and that is it.  I don't know where else I can change!  I don't know what to do.  There are so many conflicting statements out there and I feel like I have tried it all.

Although I am frustrated I will continue it and work hard because although I had a week of no loss, I am getting stronger.  I am able to do T25 with less modification.  I can feel the strength increasing!  I am loving it, although I am struggling.

Here's to a better, stronger week!  Please, help lift me up too!


  1. Hey Lady, its Lelia! do you know in my past life I was a nutritionist? I'll tell you trying to figure weight loss out is like trying to get a toddler to hold still. Our bodies nutritional needs are shifty and what worked for one person, won't work for one person, likewise what works once, may not work the next. Ugh! So frustrating. You're doing an outstanding job, this is going to take hard work, which you're doing and time and waiting stinks. You've got this lady! Pay attention to all the non-measurable victories you're having (more energy yay!) and give your self credit for all the effort you have put in! Go callie go!

    1. Thanks! You are so awesome! You put some umph back in my step just by commenting!!! :)
