Not seeing the numbers I want

Monday, March 02, 2009

I know when you gets towards your goal you tend to slow down but I am getting so annoyed. I have been losing a pound a week for the most part. Which is fine BUT I am tracking my food(most days) and working out 6-7 days a week. I don't know what else I can change to see the numbers drop quicker. I brought my calories down. SP suggests 1550 calories a day so I am going to try 1400 for a week or two and see if that helps at all. I would love to lose 12 more pounds by Summer and at this rate I feel like it will never happen. My BIG goal is to get to 145 which gives me a whopping 24 more pounds to go which means SIX MORE MONTHS! Urgh! Any suggestions? What am I not doing right? It is so hard to be happy about the 52 pounds I have lost when all I can think about is how much more I have to go and how looong it is going to take me to get there.

    Amanda don't go beating yourself up you have accomplished a lot. Did you ever get your thyroid checked? You also need to break that 24 pounds down so that it doesn't seem so large to you. I'm still rocking around 141-143. I must say a lot has been going on the last 2 weeks and I haven't really been eating right. I think your doing great.... Keep it up.

    First of all CONGRATULATIONS on the 50 pound weight loss! WOW! I so hope to reach that goal myself! I would think that dropping your calories down, like you said, sounds like a good thing to try. They say the less you weigh, the less food your body needs.
    Also remember, just because the scale doesn't show weight loss, does not mean you are not making progress emoticon Don't give up on your goal.
