7-25-12 WHAT I'M I DOING WRONG?

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

I've been tracking my food and walking every day. The darn scale just will not move.

WHAT I'M I DOING WRONG?

I'm eating within my calories, healthy good food, no junk. Lots of veggies very little bread, no pasta.

I walk every morning at least 30 min every day. The temperatures have been in the high 80 and 90's for months so walking is a sweat-fest.

  You may need to extend your walking, perhaps another walk, do other exercise later in the day for 15-20 minutes. It may break your plateau. I have gone through this. Your dedication seems excellent.

    Sometimes that scale gets stuck!! I would try bumping up your exercise a little bit. They say that a change in your routine will sometimes kick start things again. Good luck, and I am sure that pesky scale will move again soon!!! And remember, taking measurements is helpful too, you could be losing inches, and firming up more. emoticon emoticonThe scale is not always the only way to measure success!!

    Your welcome. I highly agree that without us you would not have been able to achieve all that you have. You should send us all really nice sparkgoodies for all the support we have given you. It has been very draining , but we know that you appreciate it. That is about all I can say right now coz I'm getting so emotional and starting to choke up . I just never realized how great i am. emoticon emoticon

Research Reveals the Best Abs Exercises


Essential body fat - women need at least 12%-15% to be considered healthy

Lean muscle mass - can be calculated by subtracting your total fat (as a percentage or in actual pounds) from your total weight.
This number will probably be relatively stable, or increase over time, as long as you are exercising.

Gains in muscle mass will increase your metabolism, thus enabling you to burn more calories during every activity—even sitting! So, while you do want to lose fat, setting a goal of increasing your muscle mass will help you get there.

    I'm totally motivated by numbers. I am more challenged by competing with myself than with others. Do you know how to use excel? I love to make graphs of my progress. Keep learning and shrinking.
