Thank you for your words of encouragement and knowlege! You made my day, it's funny how having other people tell you things you know in the back of your mind makes you feel reassured. Also funny how I have been overweight my entire life, so why I think I can get this weight off in a shorter time is beyond me...lol...I so appreciated all that you said, it really did help. I think you look great! Congrats on your weight loss thus far...and the runs are awesome! Ran my first in April. I would wish you luck, but you got this! You don't need luck, but have a blast! 1709 days ago
Signing up for the Tough Mudder has be the best motivation to get in shape and drop the weight slowly and steadily! I signed up with a group and raised money so my entry fee was dropped to about 100 with my discounts and signing up early. If all goes well, I think I will try a warrior dash for time sometime soon! Best of luck and way to go on your weight loss, I am right were you are, highest around 255 and now about 182. I have lost like 55 pounds just training for the TM!!! And that is with some months not eating the best, LOL! 1736 days ago
I had a 44 day plateau between November and December which was the 'umpteenth' plateau since I started last year. However, when I go back over the numbers, I've lost 72 pounds in about a year which of course comes out to about 1.5 pounds per week average. The hard thing to wrap my head around is that I lose five or so pounds in a week and then plateau for a while. The main thing is not to quit.
The website suggests that a lot of us over-estimate calories burned and under-estimate calories eaten. Please take a look at your numbers and insure they are accurate.
It would help to turn on your tracking so we could guess a little better.
