I started training for my 5K using the cto5k program a week and a half ago. I am starting week three tomorrow so I am ahead of pace and feeling great about it (my race is may 12th). My problem is I haven't actually been able to lose any weight....ok I have lost one pound. One pound??? I have been eating 5 small meals and staying around 1600 calories. I wanted to do a 1200 calorie diet, however I am still nursing and would like to for a year. So am I stuck not losing weight or losing weight at a tremendously slow rate until I stop nursing? I is pretty frustrating to be working so hard and not seeing any results on the scale. It doesn't feel very rewarding when I have been getting up every morning and going to the gym with the crew, eating healthy and seeing zero results, other than I am able to complete my workout without feeling like I might die. I have been tracking every calorie on my iphone using Calorie Counter and the only thing that is happening is that my milk supply has gone down. I am going to continue with gazelle intent and I know I will see results soon, but I am wondering if anyone nursing has gone through the same thing???
In other news my oldest is out of school for four days and then we leave for Oklahoma for four days. I will be super busy trying to keep him busy and out of mischief....wish me luck!
