Slow but Sure

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

The last couple of weeks I have only lost .25 each week. I'm glad it was a loss (I haven't had a gain yet this year and I aim to keep it that way!), but am disappointed that the weight isn't coming off faster. I am sticking to my program of cardio, strength training and keeping within calorie range (have gone under a few times but not over) and drinking 64oz+ water.

So today, I decided I am going to try to do 2 walking DVD's back to back. I just finished doing the Express Walk DVD (30 min) , the Fat Blasting Walk DVD (40 min), then Oxycise 2 for 20 min. That is 90 minutes of exercise. I did strength exercises (bootcamp + the Quilt&Lose Team Strength Challenge exercises this morning).

Hopefully this will jumpstart the weight loss!

    You are upping the exercise, are you sure you are eating enough calories. Sometimes that will slow a weight loss. Just a thought.

    Perseverance will pay off! It will. If the scale doesn't move soon, tho, you might want to check the type of food you're eating. Some people do better with fewer carbs, others do better with less protein. We're all different and sometimes cal in/cal out needs some tweaking.

    Wow you really did great today. I too haven't been losing much and I agree with Susie about getting enough calories. I know that has been my problem several different days. It seems strange but if you don't get enough your body goes into the starvation mode. Crazy but true.
    Keep up the good work, you are doing really good.

    Hi Carrie! Just a thought -- sometimes increasing your calorie count just a bit (but with healthy foods) can jump start you losing again. If you're staying at the low end of your calorie range, you might try adding 100 calories or so a day for a week, and see what happens. I know, it sounds wacky -- but I've seen it help. God bless and encourage you!!
