Metabolism is dipping, again!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I've stayed at the upper end of my calorie range, but always under 2000 calories. I stepped on the scale this morning and I've gained 3 lbs. (My weigh in is really on Friday, but I was curious.) I have eaten out, but it was salmon with no dressing on the salad. I've also exercised everyday, although not as intense over the weekend.

So, it looks like 1550 will have to remain the top of my calorie range and I'll have to be more dedicated to stay under that! My daughters want to start Insanity tonight, so I'll be trying that out. We'll see if that tones "everything" up! emoticon

I'm still in my weight range and I'll see what the scale says on Friday. Hopefully, I'll like the number then! (Being in my 40's really stinks, at times!)

    I am finding that I need to be under 1500 and exercise to lose. This is not my first go round at losing weight. However, this is my first time I have been successful. Keep up the good work and stay strong. Change what you need to to stay successful.

    As I take an active roll is supporting DSSECRETS, I totally understand the challenges. I wondered what it took to stimulate a woman's metabolism and found several sources on the subject.




Stay strong and be well!

    Hey, it could be could be in your sixties like me! You just wait girlfriend, it gets harder and harder. I would gain weight if I eat more than around 1300 calories per day. Yep things do slow down a bit as one ages. I guess it's just called life!
Have a terrific day.

    Ah, the adjustments we have to make for age! As far as the salmon, it is a healthy fish because it is fatty. On the old WW exchange plan, 2 oz of fish is one protein exchange, except for fatty fish. They are the same 1 oz per exchange as meat.

    Have you checked your nutrition tracker to see if perhaps the cause could be higher carb intake or sodium causing you to retain water? That happens to me.

    You are learning what works for your body. I am working on a few up pounds myself. Good for you staying focused and positive and finding a new calorie program.

    (Being in my 40's really stinks, at times!) LOL and I look back at my 40s so fondly.
Seriously though, I understand what you're saying. We have to make adjustments, don't we.

    I'm the same way... can't go over 1300 or 1400 calories a day or I start gaining :(
