Cat's Fat Farm Update

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

So I've been at Cat's Pretend Fat Farm for three days now. I'm eating on plan, walking in the morning, knee-habbing, doing a fitness video in the afternoon, and then walking again in the evening before easing my muscles in the hot tub and heading for the showers. emoticon I had envisioned creating 3500-calorie deficits Biggest Lower style, but that (I realise now) is insane!

Ok, so maybe I'd get voted off if we were competing, but I'm still pleased with my efforts.

Saturday: I created a 2782 calorie deficit.
Sunday: 3107 deficit emoticon
Monday: 2259 calorie deficit

That should be good for 2+ pounds so far, although the scale isn't showing it ...yet. I'm will dial back the intensity a little for the rest of the week, because the bum knee was starting to really feel the impact, but I'm still shooting for 2000 -calorie defiicts daily.

I'm feeling really positive and planning to finish the final four days strong. The 40-lb mark is still 8.6 pounds away, and my goal is to get there by the end of the month. emoticon

Thanks vey much for your support. It is such a blessing to have sparkpeople all over the world cheering each other's successes and helping each other through life's difficulties.

On my way to emoticon one pound at a time!

    I actually get US Weekly. I know, it's stupid. I know who's with who and I really suck at Who wore it best. But, I look at some of the pictures, and I am guilty of thinking that the celebs can get or stay fit with their personal trainers and chefs and cleanses and having tremendous amounts of disposable cash to afford to be able to "eat clean." I don't think I have seen you in the pages of US Weekly. But, you are doing it with your imaginary fat farm, proving that my whiny-ness about not having the celebs tools is just that - whiny-ness (spellcheck doesn't like that).

Now, if only I could afford a stay at the imaginary fat farm.

Nice job!

    Well done!! Fantastic! I read recently its better if you do moderate exercise throughout the day, that being active is more important then doing one session of heavy, sweaty exercise. Having knee issues maybe this is something you consider. I was shocked to read 60 minutes of exercise daily may do you no good if you spend the rest of the time sitting on your butt, unfortunately, both my job and liesure activity are both sedentary :(
Keep up the great work Cat! You are doing awesome!!

    YEAH! It sounds like you are making great progress. Don't worry to much about the scale now - the anti-inflammatory meds for your knee will be causing water weight & bloating. But as soon as you taper off them I'm sure you will see big numbers!

    It's good that you're listening to your body and planning to dial it down. 3500-a day deficits do sound insane!

All the best with your continued, albeit less insane, efforts!
