I was stuck at 223 all through February. I've gone til now without really weighing myself. I got on... saw the number... got off... looked under the scale to see if the kids had left a toy under it... put the scale back down, got on again... and saw the same number!
219!!!! I'm losing again!
So it turns out I wasn't eating enough. I was eating in my minimum range to lose "2 pounds per week" but it turns out I need to eat at the "1 pound per week" range to lose 2 pounds per week (and all my info is correct on here including how much I work out... so it's just how my body is I guess)
Also my last four workouts (3 zumba and a run) I exerted myself to the point where I wasn't just sweating... I was like a sweat fountain... and I didn't feel bad afterwards! I LOVE progress!
___to answer some commonly asked questions on here___
___How I figured out I needed to eat more___
I was stuck, I wasn't eating a lot to begin with so I took the suggestion from people here on Spark to eat more. I changed my goal on my goals page to a goal that would require me to lose 1 pound per week to reach it rather than 2 pounds. I gave it two weeks and then stepped on the scale again. When I did that, I did honestly expect it to have gone up, in which case I would have known that was the wrong choice and done something else to try losing again. Luckily, it was the RIGHT choice!
___Did it continue working?___
Yes, a couple weeks later and I'm down to 216! One more pound and I will be officially 25% of the way to my ultimate goal and 50% of the way to my homecoming goal!
___where do I do Zumba? how do I have the time with 3 kids?____
my livingroom, while they are at school and the baby is sleeping or after they have all gone to bed. I have Zumba on Xbox Kinect. It may not be like taking a class but if you really want the results its not hard to push yourself to the point that you are getting a really good workout all by yourself!
__are you in the army?___
I was in the army however that was almost a decade ago. My husband is currently serving in the Marine Corps and is on a deployment, which is part of my motivation to reach my halfway goal while he is gone.
