i hate my scale!!!!!

i've been working my ass off for 4 months since i gave birth 5 months ago doing 2-3 hours of very aggressive workouts every day and haven't lost one damn pound. every day i look at that scale and it says 124 lbs. i hate it. i want that number to be 20 lbs less. i don't get it. i eat right, i don't starve myself, i don't eat crap, i drink up to 10 cups of water a day, and i work out like crazy and i'm still fat, i've never been this fat before...ahhhhhh. what do i do to get that number back to where it should be??? i'm 5'3"

  • Not what you want to hear but, 5'3" and 124 is a healthy weight. Not sure what else you can do. Sometimes when you stop worrying about it the weight starts to come off.

  • 124 pounds is far from being fat, but you do realise muscle weighs more than fat.. So if you are working out like you say you are then you are losing fat and gaining muscle...

  • I will switch with you. You probably can't lose because you don't have much to spare.

  • My goal weight is 125 or 120.I am 5'2 and my dr said THAT i do not need to loose more then that.I have already lost 30 pounds in 3 months though.JUST because you work out doesn't mean you will loose weight...Sometimes it does the opposite and you gain muscle weight not ALL bad lol.

  • If you are working out 2-3 hours a day, the odds are you are not eating enough calories to offset that. You have to know your BMR to find out how many calories you are supposed to eat everyday. If you are at a healthy weight, it will very difficult to lose any more weight.
