FINALLY!!! Sheesh....

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I guess this Weight Watchers thing is working. Seems my metabolism is broken, though, and that's what the problem has been. When I was doing appetite-lead Primal eating, or going by what my Fitbit said I was burning....I wasn't gaining but I sure wasn't losing.

So here's what's working: I have 38 points daily, plus 49 to use throughout the week. Plus I earn 6-8 points a day with exercise. I have to pretty much stick to the 38 points a day and forget the extra....and there's certainly no eating all those extra activity points! I have to eat protein, fruit and veggies and no more than 1 piece of bread a day. No sodas or other sweet stuff or the weight just sticks on me.

And the really odd thing is....when I cut down on my activity, I lose more. I can't figure it out. I'm just grateful it's coming off in dribs and drabs.

    That is great Shelli! I am finding the same thing going on with me-wehn I eat sweets the pounds don't come off or slow way down! Eating healthier has really helped to keep off what I lost. Those magic formula's for our individual bodies takes time to figure out and lots of adjustments off and on. Keep going! But, don't give up on the exercise! Your body needs that too. Maybe try something different, like I just did with riding a bike again for the first time in 15 years. The pounds started coming off again! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    So you can only eat 1 piece of bread?
So very low carb for you?
So how long do you exercise 30 or what?

    Glad you are making progress. At least you know ways to tweak what you are doing to get the desired result.

    Yea, that's the kind of sense that's not - but it's working so it's WONDERFUL!
I'm glad you've found the right combination of what you're doing to see results. What a relief to feel like you're accomplishing something! Proud of you for sticking to it and not giving up!
