Weight Loss Stalls

They happen... I feel like I've been stuck at 275 for a month now. I started at 296 on January 7th. Today is only February 28. I have lost 21 pounds in two months. That is a success... but it isn't success enough for me. I am working out 2-3 times a week at a minimum, eating no more that 1500 calories a day. I'm suppose to be eating less from what I read on the boards. My doctor never really said a hardcore calorie limit- the nurse discussed the range in class, and it wasn't 600-800 calories. It was 3 meals a day, protein first, veggies second, and as few carbs as possible. I'm doing that. It's not moving.

So, I am trying to be patient. My best friend and I are going to start working out together. She is tiny and in much worse shape than me. There are unhealthy skinny people in this world, Jayne isn't--- okay, she is out of shape. Blaine, her hubby said, "Jayne got winded walking up the stairs at Cabela's." She doesn't deny it. I will run circles around her. I've been working out for 5 years now.

Nick tells me the stall is from age. I told him I feel like it shouldn't be... but 30 is where the body starts to slow down. Still, I feel like I should be able to beat those odds. I've done Jillian Michaels 30 day shred two days in a row now. It kicks my ass. I hope though, by the end of the year, I can do all three workouts without getting out of breath. That's my goal. I guess I better start hanging with Jillian and making it happen.
