How losing weight is proving tough

For the last 6-7 weeks I have been going to the gym and taking up new classes like boxing and abs blast. These have been absolutely terrifying but I’m starting to get used to what the classes have to offer. My stamina has increased, I am using my inhaler less during exercise and I’m geared up to go to the gym more.

The only downside to me working out so much is I’m not seeing any physical results. In 6 weeks I have only lost 3lbs despite changing what I eat and how many calories I am consuming. This is getting me down as you can imagine. I have been told to take measurements so I’ve done that and none of those have changed either, very surprised.

I made the decision to book an appointment with my doctor to see what advice they can give me. Around two years ago I was sent for a blood test to rule out an underactive thyroid as I do suffer with many of the symptoms – it came back fine. So I have once again booked to see if they can test me again because it would make a lot of sense as to why I am struggling.

I would love some pointers? I have been using My Fitness Pal as well but I haven’t given it a real chance yet so I’ll go back to that soon.

I’m back

I have been away in Portugal for a week and decided to take some time out from using my Mac unless it was absolutely necessary. The holiday was brilliant, I even tried blue shark for the first time. It was a little odd to eat as I knew what it was but it did taste good! Albuferia is one lively place, we were approached by many people, the music was great, the atmosphere was constant, especially at night.

The only downside to my holiday was it being Half Board which meant I got a little greedy with food. As some of you will know I have been a bit of a health freak as I am desperate to lose 3 stone. I lost 8/9lbs before I went and put on 4lbs after my holiday so this week I’m back on track. I have been using Charlotte Crosby’s 3 Minute Belly Blitz, yes it is a killer but you do get great results. My fitness has improved so much however now I am not so sure as I have had two weeks off but we shall see!

I really need to keep My Fitness Pal up to date as well but today is the beginning and I am excited to see the results. I might post a few bits on here as it is something I really want to do.
