Day 3,4,&5 Lipo 6

Saturday, February 18, 2012

I have stuck with one in the morning and one in the evening until Day 4 I tried 2 in the evening and I felt bad. I can't explain the feeling but I didn't feel right at all so I stayed home and chilled out for the evening. Day 5 I went back to 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening and had no problems. I actually have noticed that it really helps curb my appetite. I have not lost any weight though and I am feeling super discouraged. I work out at least once a day taking a break yesterday because of a full day at work and I have been watching my calories. It's only been a week but I expected at least a pound or two loss and there hasn't been anything. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I know this sucks.


Day 2 Lipo 6

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

So I started Lipo 6 yesterday and I only took one capsule in the afternoon and did Zumba in the afternoon. I felt a little weird when if first took effect but nothing bad just different. I went to bed early and slept well.
Day 2
I woke up early took my Lipo 6 right away and 30 minutes later I had half a protein shake and oatmeal. I went to the gym and did 45 minutes on the elliptical then home to shower and get to school. I ate some crackers and lunch meat during class, then after school I took my second pill and after 30 minutes had a grilled chicken breast and a value fry. After work I had some chicken breast and then headed out to Zumba. The teacher was awful so after about 20 minutes we left and headed to the gym. I did 25 minutes on the elliptical. Then home where I finished off my calories for the day with some carefully chosen Taco Bell. While watching the biggest loser I did 15 minutes on the bike.

So far I haven't felt any negative effects other than a mild headache tonight. I have drank a ton of water and eaten within my calorie range. I have felt awake during the day without the bad feeling that caffine gives me usually. I am tired at night and so far have slept well. Now to see if the scale shows what the pill is supposed to do.


Feeling a little out of place...

Saturday, July 11, 2009

I just had baby number 3 in February and the day before he was born weighed in at my biggest ever at 203! By the begining of March I was already down to 183.5 and still losing. I have had blood tests done, seen several doctors, and a nutritionist since. In the last 5 months I have already seen great results but at a pace that concerns me. Nobody really has any answers for me. SP has set my calorie intake at about 1900-2200 and then I am exclusively nursing so I am supposed to add 500 to each end.
Well the nutritionist brought me a diet guide for 1500 and 1800 calories! Then she informed me that I was not to lose more than 8 pounds in the 4 weeks before I saw her next! wth lady! I told her that if I ate only 1500-1800 calories that I wouldn't be able to stay awake all day from the exhaustion. I was trying to explain to her that on top of taking care of a house and 3 kids while my husband is deployed, I have several volunteer positions, I work out 5 days a week for about an hour or so, and I climb the rock wall 2 nights a week. SP totals my calories burnt for a week at around 3000. Then she told me that for my body it was probably more like 400 calories for every 30 minutes of cardio! Which means probably more than that!!! She also told me that sometimes after a pregnancy your metabolism changes and she thinks that is what is going on with me.

I have joined groups on here but I haven't found a place where I really fit. My whole life I have been the chubby girl but now I am losing weight hand over fist and actually having problems eating enough. I have yet to find anyone that is even partially sympathetic to my issue. It always seems like a problem whether you feel like the fat girl that can't lose or you are the skinny girl that can't gain. Only now I'm the inbetween girl that isn't sure whats going on!

    Lacey, I'm so sorry that you feel this way, and I'm sure it doesn't help that your hubby is away too. I agree with LIVINGPRESENT, listen to your body and how you feel and as long as you feel strong and your baby is getting enough nutrition I'm not sure what else you can do. But, in the meantime, if you need support just let me know. That's what this site is all about. I hope you have a fantastic day. I'm here for you!! emoticon

    Ouch! it is so hard when we feel alone with a problem and like no one can relate to it.

So, I am wondering after having read your blog, how you are feeling physically? Are you producing enough milk? Do you have enough energy to enjoy the the physical activities you are doing and your 3 children? Are you feeling strong and healthy? If the answer is yes, then my advice is to continue doing what you are and ignore the rest of the world. Your body knows what it needs if you are listening to it and it is working for you the way you want it to who cares what others think. They are not living in your body.

Met all my daily goals!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, June 12, 2009

For the first time EVER I met all my nutritional goals yesterday!!! I was within calories, protein, fat, and fiber!!!!



Tired of it!

Thursday, June 11, 2009

I keep reading how everyone is having all this trouble losing and how it took us 9 months to gain and it will take 9 months to lose. I am trying to take that to heart but in a different way. I gained 25 pounds with my first pregnancy. I never lost any of it. Then with my second I gained 27 and lost every pound in just a couple months. Now I am 4 months PP from my third and have not only lost all 23 pounds I gained with him but 16 more. Yet I still feel like I haven't done enough and I still see that same woman in the mirror. I should be so ecstatic and grabbing up new clothes or something but I still feel like 180 pounds of me.

Why are we so hard on ourselves? That saying should send me through the roof but I still feel like I need to work out harder and eat way better because I'm not down to 145 pounds (which I haven't seen in over 6 years).

I think that will have to be one of my goals. I will figure out a way to be happy with what I've done and see what a great accomplishment it is.

So whether you have lost a pound or 10 pat yourself on the back for me!
