Stopping All Weight Loss IMMEDIATELY!!!

Monday, June 09, 2008

Well, not actually stopping. I'm just not going to burn 4200+ calories per week anymore. I'll be trying to not even burn 200 a week. Let's see how well I can do know its going to be hard for me.

I am going to focus on strength training & toning my body as it is. I realize I've lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time (lost 55lbs since Feb 08) and am now taking time out to concentrate on toning everything before I start losing weight again. I do not want to be able to tuck my skin. Right now, I couldn't tuck it if I tried (which is a good thing). There is another reason why I am stopping all weight loss, but its not something I just really want to put out there for the world to read. However, if you send me a message, I'll tell you without a problem. Some people think I'm being sensitive, but whatever! :-)

While my fitness minutes are barely going to increase, my food intake will increase considerably. I now have to eat 2230 calories per day to maintain my current weight (doing 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week). I will continue my current eating habits though, as I was never on a diet, but a mission to change my lifestyle. Btw, I was successful in changing my lifestyle. :-)

Suggestions anyone? I plan on doing pilates & yoga while focusing on exercises that will strengthen my upper body and core.

    wow, I am impressed with what you have done!
    I have only lost 20 pounds since Jan, and the damn scales got stuck. I am losing inches though..
    I also am afraid of the loose hanging skin on my body, I already sag. I would love to keep up with your progress!
    thanks for sharing

    Strength training and Toning is a good way to get those muscles in the right places that they should be in and to sculpt them the way they should be looking without any surgery or extreme measures.

    You have came a long way to loose the weight that you did and you should be proud of yourself no matter what others may say or think it was a positive thing that you have done for yourself. Keep up the good work and never loose sight of your end results.
    Please keep in touch if there is any thing I can do for you or just to chat to I am a mail away.

    It sounds like (or "as if"-for your mom) you have really thought this through. I agree that toning is probably a good choice now, especially since you lost weight so rapidly! Let me know if I can lend support in any way.
