Update: After some fluctuation, this morning my weight hit a 2 year low of 127.5

Dropping my calories to 1200-1300/day and dropping NROWLFW to twice/week, upping my cardio seems to be working.

Also, an AW: my arms look fabulous when skipping rope!

thanks Brown_Organics, good info. I have that issue. I can't imagine backing off exercise right now....I know they say that's kind of a problem sometimes, getting it through women's heads that we need to back off. Right now I'm doing the Best Body work out that started in January. I'm in wk 8 this week. No change on the scale, but I've lost 1.5" from my waist and 2" from my bust :(, and .5 from my thighs. My jeans are looser than ever. Great post, Thanks for sharing it! Good info and something to remember. I have really noticed a dramatic change in my hunger on my rest days vs my heavy work out days. All because of SP and tracking my food! LOVE SP!

Oxygen has a 21 day fat blaster program. --- most folks have had success :)
Okay ladies. this was posted in an issue at the beginning of the year. It is the same meals all week for 3 weeks and is supposed to make you lose 10 lbs in 3 weeks.

They recommend backing off exercise quite significantly while on this program. here are the three weeks:

Week 1:

Meal 1: 3/4 c oatmeal, not instant, 1 orange or bananna
Meal 2: 1 apple
Meal 3: 1/2 c rice, 4oz skinless chicken breast or fish, grilled, 1 c summer squash, chopped
Meal 4: 2 c celery, 1 tbsp natural almond butter
Meal 5: 6oz fish, grilled, 1 c zucchini, 1 c asparagus, 3 c salad
Meal 6: 1 c mixed berries

**plus one snack option (12 raw almonds, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce with 1/2 c shredded wheat biscuit)
**drink one oz of water for every pound of your body weight

Week 2
Meal 1 : 3/4 c oatmeal, not instant
1 orange or banana
Meal 2 : 2 cups raw celery or 8-10 cherry tomatoes
Meal 3 : 1/2 baked potato
4 oz skinless chicken breast or fish,
grilled
Meal 4 : 2 cups celery or 1 bell pepper
1 tbsp natural almond butter
Meal 5 : 6 oz fish, grilled
1 cup zucchini
1 cup asparagus
3 cups mixed salad greens
PLUS two snacks as necessary during the day


Week 3
Meal 1: 1 egg, 3 egg whites, 2 cups mixed bell peppers
Meal 2: 2 cups raw celery, 1 tbsp natural almond butter
Meal 3: 4 oz skinless chicken breast or fish,
grilled, 1 cup summer squash, 1 cup asparagus, 3 cups salad, 1 tbsp low-calorie salad dressing
Meal 4: 2 cups raw celery
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
Meal 5: 2 oz tuna, 1 cup mixed bell peppers
Meal 6: 6 oz chicken breast or fish, grilled
1 cup zucchini
1 cup steamed tomatoes
3 cups mixed salad

Use one snack option only if absolutely necessary

well I know how frustrating that can be, especially when we see shows about people losing so much in six weeks, like biggest loser, and we're doing everything we can to do it "right" yet nothing happens. Believe me, I completely understand your frustration. I hope you let us know how your switch up goes.

I measured myself last night. Nothing.

I'm going to scale back on NROL sessions to twice a week and up my cardio and drop my calories. I have a vacation scheduled in 4 weeks and want to get some fat off of me. I'll worry about gaining muscle later.

do your measurements. The number on the scale is just that a number w/ no actual meaning for an active female. You know that muscle weighs more, yet takes up less space than fat, therefore your measurements are the way to guage your fitness success. I read about a lady who weighed 170, yet was in size 6's and 8's, her body fat was super low, she was all muscle. Please don't give the scale that much power over your life. It just an inanimate object that weighs things. That's the only info it gives you, not your BF composition, not your energy levels etc. Also for your calories it may be that you need to adjust what kind of calories you are fueling with. Go by the number on the back of your jeans.....you'll be happier

Have you compared your measurements?

I can't say much right now, have been injured and sick, so slowly getting back into exercising.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

I know, I know. That's not the point. However, I'm working my tail off lifting 3 days a week and doing cardio twice and the scale is. not. budging.

At my most muscular/fittest i was a lean 120 lbs. I am STUCK at 130 and the scale hasn't budged in months. I am very, very frustrated and losing motivation quickly.

I'm averaging 1600 calories per day, any less and I get hungry and cranky.
