10 pounds to goal!

At my heaviest I was 240 pounds. I lost 30 pounds and got stronger in 2008 thru an outdoor fitness bootcamp, then hit a plateau because I didn't change my eating habits.

When I joined SP in Oct. 2012 I was stuck at 210 pounds, and my current goal is 160. I am 3/4 of the way there and the difference in the way I look and feel is huge. I keep being surprised when I see myself in mirrors.

I am grateful to SP and all my wonderful SparkFriends!

Sorry that I got that confused, LOL

MY parents and my 8 year old are in Iceland today, but they leave in the morning from Iceland to go to Germany, then Austria by train. He's having the expirience ofa lifetime, and I am so grateful for that, but I miss him terribly. we certainly didn't have the time or money to take trips like that when I was young before my parents retired, but we did have fun and did go to Disneyworld.

I was just reading againa about calorie cycling. I have always done it, but not in a very structured way. But I plan on trying it again in a more planned out manner when I hit a plateu.

It recommends 3 days at 15-20 % below your estimated daily caloric expenditure rate, then 1 day just slightly below your estimated caloric rate and then 3 days again 15-20% below, and 1 day close to maintenence calories again.

For someone who wants/needs results faster- lets say for a special event, or extra weight is hurting the knee, they recommend 25-30% below, which is what I am doing daily right now.


They also do not recommend during weight loss to eat more due to exercise. Which makes sense. Some people feel if they exercise 30-35 minutes, they go back up to maintenence calories, and the calorie cycling leaders don't recommend that when weight loss is the goal. They want that exercise to enhance the calorie deficit, not match it.

Maybe its something to consider when you want to blast off those past few pounds to your ultimate goal.

Ok, You have to tell me how you enjoyed "Hungry for Change". I really liked it. I thought they could have left out the whole little "side story" of the dark haired woman... but that is just my opinion.

I didn't know your amor was in Brazil! You need to post a picture of you together. Does yur sweetie visit you in the states too?

I am happy to hear about that job prospect, I hope if you like it, that it will become permanent!

Well- Let me know what you think of the documentary.
By the way, I LOVE Amazon Prime, I signed up for the 1 month free trial before Christmas, to get free shipping, and then my hubby and I were hooked.

hey there!


Have you been on any trips this past year? How is that Job prosprect looking for you?

My 8 year old is on a trip with my parents. He is currently in Iceland, then they are going to Germany and then Austrai. i MISS HIM SO MUCH THOUGH.

I do get to talk to him on Facetime, but the connection isn't great.

I have an opportunity to go to Cancun in fall, my mom said she'd watch the baby, but My husband and I just have to find the funds.

Anyways, just wanted to say hi. Great job staying in calorie range over the weekend, that is 80% of the battle!

Alot of people have been talking about "calorie cycyling" when they hit a plateau, I will try it later in the weight loss regimine, when I hit a plateu and get closer to goal.

Take care!
Lisa

Thanks for your support concerning my brother and his boss. I know God is bigger than any problem, and I have turned it over to him, but he is my brother! The news media has him practically tried, convicted and on his way to prison. Whatever happened to being innocent until proven guilty?

Anyway, thanks again. I need all my spark friend's support and prayers now more than any other time I have asked for prayers. emoticon emoticon
