Slow but sure wins the race

Saturday, September 05, 2009

So I'm at my lowest weight in at least a year but I'm still 10 lbs above what I weighed 2 years ago. I was hoping to lose much faster than this but I'm hoping that slow but sure wins the race.

I have friends who are pushing me to use the human growth hormone diet which is so big right now. They have all lost much more weight than I have in a shorter amount of time. They also swear that it re=sets your set point in weight. That would be awesome if it were true, but I'm still not sold on the concept yet. I think I'll keep plugging along and hopefully lose weight without gimmicks.

I hope I can lose another 6 lbs in September to go along with the 6 lbs I lost in August. I would like to look good when my family comes to visit at the beginning of October, but we'll see. At least it gives me something to work towards.

Today, I at a little more than usual since I had family here, but I still stayed within my range, just at the high end of the range. Usually, I'm slightly below my suggested calories, but I know that if I do that everyday, my metabolism will slow way down.

Thanks SP for the support

    Hi: I think your instincts are correct to stick with what is working, instead of pursuing a fad. Your friends may have faster results, but will they last? Besides, we can't affect the amount of hgh in our bodies through food choices. And we can only change our metabolism by the type and intensity of physical activity in proportion to the amount of calories consumed. Sorry for the lecture - if this diet has long-term phenomenal results, everyone would be talking about it and physicians & nutritionists would be recommending it - this is the first I've heard of it!

    You're making permanent lifestyle changes while still living your life - keep up the good work & be patient with yourself! emoticon
