What to do with five lbs?

Friday, April 19, 2013

I have been on sparks five years this July. I have lost this five lbs several times but it just wants to hang around... so do i keep it? be a slave to it? any ideas to get rid of it? I have learned to eat better, exercise more, lift weights so i don't lose muscle! I have lost 18 inches and 10 lbs. Not much for some but still a loss! I have weighed this weight 10 yrs ago, so its not like i have dream weight issues going on..
I chose this weight because it is in the middle of my range. I weighed at the lowest of my range until i hit 40 then badabing here it was at the top and over. I found spark and lowered it with exercise and weightlifting and calorie tracking. I still calorie track and exercise. So what gives with five lbs?

    Everyone is different! If you are in your BMI, look, and feel the way you want to then don't feel like you have to be a slave to a number on the scale. You will probably lose it during the spring and summer just by being outside more and eating all the nice fruits and vegetables available this time of year. Let us know what you decide! I'm curious because I just want to get back into my BMI again!!!

on getting back into your BMI and not letting your metabolism slowing down get the best of you!

    If you are still at a healthy BMI with those 5 pounds, you feel good, and you can do everything you like to do, then maybe that is your body's "happy weight." If you are interested, just google "finding your happy weight" and you'll see a bunch of articles that might give you another perspective.

    I would try to change your exercise or food intake. You can do it. It is frustrating when the 5 pounds don't just come off easily. emoticon
