I need to lose 2 kilo's in 7 days. Why? Cause my PT is trying to get me back on track
by offering me movie tickets if I lose 2 kilo's this month. It being the end of the month and me not yet having lost anything, I'm freaking out! I'm doing the shakes, I'm cutting down the carbs, I'll be at the gym more (I hope).
Anything else anyone can advise? I'm too old to be happy being hungry.
Getting back on track is the challenge you need to tackle, not winning movie tickets. Telling yourself you need
to lose 2 kilos is not healthy. It is the perfect setup for that all-or-nothing thinking -- it reads "If I don't lose the 2 kilos, I have failed, so I might as well eat xxxxxx or zzzzzzzz, etc"
And "hoping" you'll be at the gym more??? What does that mean? Sorry to be so blunt, but if you only hope, it probably won't happen.
If you've lost no weight in the month under the guidance of a PT, I think you should look at other options. Clearly the "diet" you are on is not working, and the exercise is not compensating for what you are eating (assuming you have no medical issues).
