Short post today...

My weight this morning went back down. Although at my official weigh in with the nutritionist, it went up again, ugh. I don't care, know what it was this morning and that is all that counts!

I have a sneaking suspicion that she is trying to kill me. I told her I was running, and she asked what about my other cardio....yes, get ready for this, the crazy lady wants me to do two days of running, three days of zumba, and two days of step....well, she wants me to try at least....

On a side note, with the increase in exercise, I can increase my calories to 1900 soi don't eat my own muscles! You seriously have to love the weirdness that is nutrition.

Anyway, I am off to sort through my clothes. As I have lost a little weight, I no longer mind if my clothes are a little better fitting. I always used to buy xxl when I was on the lower end of xl clothes. So now that I am slightly smaller, all the already too big clothes are more too big. I decided that I am not ready to fully part ways, but I am ready to finally fit the clothes that fit me into the closet...I know I only lost a few pounds, but I feel a lot more comfortable (even with my belly) and actually nice fitting clothes!

Yay for new attitudes!

Have a great night everyone!

    Way to Go! I know doing all of that cardio seems crazy, but it's good to change it up. That's something I need to do. I do way too much running and not enough of other stuff. If you're going to be doing alot more cardio, it is important to up those calories especially to make sure you get your protein in.

    When I was losing I kept the big clothes for a while too. Now I don't want big things. I want fitted things. I have nothing to hide anymore and I'm very proud of where I am now.

    Good Luck!

    I would ask your nutritionist point blank about your calorie intake. I feel like if you are getting proper levels of protein you should not have to worry about muscle loss. I take in 1250 to 1500 hundred calories, and do not feel like I am getting weaker I feel like I am getting stronger. And you have to create calorie deficits to reduce weight. Maybe a doctor or someone else for a second opinion as well I guess. I plan to go to my doctors at either 60 or 90 days and have a full panel done just to see what he says.

    I would be a bit skeptical as each lb of fat cost like 3 to 4K in calories to rid yourself of. 1900 sounds really high to me for someone whose number 1 priority is moving the scale downward. Just my 2 cents, I am no dietician though, so take it for what it's worth. Keep going!!!

    That is funny that you say that. When I am chubby (read fat), I wear really overly large clothes (usually a 2x) and now I am in a medium. Mind you the medium is a big too small but I like showing off my curves now. It totally is a matter of impression.

    Woah, I think I am eating WAY too few calories then. I do 5 days of Zumba, 1 day of aqua aerobics and 1 day of fast walking a week and then 3 days of Body Pump and 2 days of Yoga and I only eat 1200 calories a day. Oops. Oh yea, and sometimes I throw in CXWorks and Nike Training Camp (like tomorrow).

    New attitudes reflect the new you!
    As I get smaller I gravitate towards more fitted clothing, too.
