I know that the weight will come off if I persist...but I'm discouraged.

O.K. I'm trying not to get depressed about only losing 4 pounds in a week. I mean, 4 pounds is something. It's better than mothing or even just a couple pounds. I really want to lose at least 20 pounds this month. I'm starting to wonder if it's going to be possible.
I still want to exercise too, because I want to exercise after the fast. I wanted to get started on the habit of exercise, as it will be an important part of maintaining ANY weight loss. If I just fast for a month or so and then I start exercising, it's going to be hard to stay motivated, for me anyway.
I really think that it's got something to do with water retention and my menstrual cycle. I seem to remember my weight loss stalling every month and then I would loss a good amount of weight. I finally connected it to my cycle, well I guessed that's what it was. I'm no scientist, so I don't know for sure.
Anyway, I'm just writing to "talk out" my feelings. I feel a little better. I'm just feeling so blah and yucky, part of it is the weather (cold and rainy, with some sleet!) and part of it is situational. Oh well.
