The last 25
Tuesday, March 05, 2013
The first 50 came off easily. I dropped 1.9 pounds a week on average. Then I stopped tracking during the holidays and gained 9 back.
So right after the holidays I started tracking again. I'm finding that if I am not diligent with sticking in my ranges, I don't drop it as easily as if I were still dropping it around 200 pounds. I could easily go out of my ranges at that weight and still drop daily. Now if I have even 50 calories over my range I'll go up half a pound.
I'm still dropping the weight, but it seems like more of a fight now. If I can't get out and walk, I gain the quarter of a pound overnight. It seems that I need to be more on top of each thing to be able to keep the loss consistent. I've had to push my end date off a few times now. According to my trend line, I should be 10 pounds lighter already, so it got pushed back again.
My body is fighting me. It doesn't like the weight loss. It is more sketchy each week. One week it'll drop 2 pounds, the next I've gained one back.
I'm still going, but my body is no longer enjoying the process. I think it likes this 170 range, but I want a 150 range! I'll go kicking and screaming, that burns calories, right?
