Grrrr!! Please help, I am so frustrated >:(
One month ago I started a regimen to include eating a healthy breakfast of either cooked oatmeal and a fruit or yogurt and a fruit. I rarely eat junk food, maybe once a week. I rarely eat fast food, also maybe once a week. I do aerobics or run 4-5 times a week. Lunch is usually a big salad and a lean protein. Meats aren't a problem, I eat chicken breast or fish. I stopped drinking coffee in the morning because it led me to overeat during the day. And I have gained 5 pounds!! What am I doing wrong??
I'm not overweight, per se, 145 and 5' 5". I'm trying to lose my spare tire which is the only place I have a "problem." My legs and arms are trim, my thighs and butt are jiggly but that doesn't bother me....that will tone up with exercise. Has anyone else run into this? It is incredibly frustrating, I thought I would have lost at least ONE pound in a month but that is not the case!!
Any suggestions, ideas as to what I am doing wrong?? Or do I need to give it more time?
