I started a new diet and this is my 3rd week on it. I've been counting calories and fat and being very careful with portion sizes. I've been exercising 6 days a week either on my Gazelle for 45 minutes, or a 2-3 mile brisk walk/hike. I also do crunches and use stretch bands to target other areas of my body. The problem is, I've only lost 3-4 pounds and it seems to be fluctuating. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong! It's discouraging me because I'm not able to eat the things that I used to enjoy, and I'm hungry! I would knock someone over for a cheesesteak or a Big Mac right now. But if I cheat just a little tiny bit and have even half of one of those things, the weight comes right back on the next day and I'm back to where I started. Could this be a medical disorder or something? I feel like I'm losing my mind! The weight is barely coming off when I work really hard at it, and if I indulge myself just a little, I have to start all over again. This is definitely a lose-lose situation and sometimes I'm so ready to give up. I've dieted a million times before and never had this problem. I was never this serious about it either! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please tell me that one of you has been there before!
