No weight change.

Friday, July 12, 2013

Tomorrow is the official weigh in day but I had a peek today to see if I had any change and no!

I will be doing my measurements tomorrow and hope for lots of inches lost. This is very frustrating. I have never experience a stall this early in my weight loss journey before. This is a test of patience which I have little of. So the changes I tried to make last week: eat more, add 4 tbsp of heavy whipping cream to my two shakes and to eat veggies as my snacks. I will make more of an effort to implement these changes this week. I increased and changes my workout routine, I now use the row machine and elliptical at the gym. I will add weights 2 times a week starting next week. I really dont have any other ideas as to how to get out of the 200's I start my new job on the 22 and I dont have alot of clothes in this size. I need to be in a size 12 but I do have great work clothes in 14. So getting from 16 to 14 would be great. I really think its my calorie intake I am a lil over 1000 cals a day and I need to be close to 1500 a day. I am just not that hungry and its hurting my progress. I will have to find other healthy ways to sneak in fats, I also stopped eating pork rinds and I have started to make some dips with sour cream to eat cucumbers and celery with. I just added more carbs yesterday to allow more veggies from 25to30.( my tolerance is 45 for owl) I am trying to take this as a time to learn what works for my body. If I have not lost inches or lbs by next week I am starting over in induction. This is very frustrating. I feel like I have become obsessed with everything low carb. I am constantly goggling and buying or borrowing all the books I can find on the subject. I have so much information to decipher its crazy. I love the low carb group I get a lot of info there and things I can try and implement. I guess its all about trial and error to discover what I need to do. But I didnt start this stall till I increased my cardio! I really dont want to try not exercising a week to discover that now I should just stop. I need the stress release. I have blab long enough time to start my day! Gotta go grocery shopping and the dog just drank my morning shake! Just great!

Hope your day is bright!

    Watch those dairy products close and for hidden sugars in stuff like drink mixes. Drink mixes for water often read 0 carbs but they have hidden sugars that can stall you. Many people cant eat dairy or very much of it at all if they want to lose. Make SURE you are getting in enough water. For most 64oz a day is just not enough I have to get in at least 120oz my hubby drink more like 180oz I know it maybe hard for you but water can be all you need to do different to lose. I don't really understand why it takes so much water to lose but it does. You cant just sip water all day you have to drink it and know how much you drink. Sipping you may not be getting in the amount you think you are. We use a water bottle and refill it to keep up with ours.

    Doing all that exercise you may want to put your caloires at 1800 if 1500 dont wotk. Cooking your food in/with some good oils will bump you calories up there if your not hungry.
