Who Is Walkerlady?

I'm the 'Lazy Quilter' who doesn't always take the time to try to achieve perfection. I prefer to enjoy the process of creating instead of agonizing over being perfect. I am 'Walker Lady' who changed my lifestyle and lost over 70 pounds in the process! I wear the hats of a Quilter, Artist, Crafter, Musician, Life Coach, Wife, and Mom, all rolled up into one unique human bean!

Are we there yet?

I feel like a little kid..."Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

I weighed in today and nothing has changed. I am still at 195, where I have been for months now... give or take a few pounds. It is scary being so close to 200 pounds. For the first time EVER in my life, I lost all this weight the right way and have kept it off for almost two years. According to all the things I've read, I think I need to lose 20-30 more pounds. I am still in the overweight category and also still have 37% body fat.

So what is going on? I don't know for sure. I started tracking my calorie intake again and I am on track for what I should be eating. I tried eating less. I tried eating more. Nothing budged. Maybe it was my exercising? I had sloughed off during the summer a bit. So I instigated the 30/30 challenge and did 30 minutes a day of walking for 30 days. Nothing budged. I am still with the gym, but I know I am under performing there. I talked to a trainer and have a new plan of attack that I will be trying for another month to see if that makes for a change.

As close as I am to what weight I should be, as set by the experts, I know it is harder to lose weight. Perhaps this is the weight I need to be at? I don't know how much more I am willing to do to lose weight. I have never had to live a life in this type of body.

I hope to work on the updates from my annual physical, later this weekend. Most of the numbers were pretty good. Since the weather is super duper right now, I plan to walk this weekend for the fun of it! I hope you all are Walking-On, too.

How frustrating! But from what I understand, not uncommon.

I think the trick is feel great about all the healthy things you are doing for your body, which can be hard when you're not getting the expected results. Because it sounds like you're doing all the right stuff!

Good luck with any tweaks you can discover, but you're right, there's only so much one can do that's sustainable!
