I've been doing this consistently for 4 weeks. Lost a grand total of 2 whole pounds...a little discouraging. But I've made progress in establishing better habits like working out consistently instead of sporadically, having much more awareness & ownership of the food I pop in my mouth throughout the day.
On the bright side, I do feel more toned, energetic, and I can see that my core area has lost a little excess flab. A few encouraging signs....just need to keep moving and work on getting beyond this point since this is the point at which, on previous diets or plans, I would allow myself to get derailed due to boredom...or whatever myriad of excuses. Well better get off the computer & get at some strength training.

    Thanks for the encouragement & suggestions. I agree I should be staying at the bottom of my calorie range & have been thinking the same thing...I get ssooooo hungry :D! I will try to do a lot better this week. I def. went overboard this weekend & will get back on track today & tomorrow. Thanks again!!

    Again we have so much in common. I just lost 2lbs after four weeks too . As flyfighter stated, that is something worth celebrating. I am going to stick to the same suggestions she gave the both of us. I started meal replacement with a protein shake in the morning and staying below 1550 cals. I have a month to lose 8lbs. Hang with me girl! emoticon

    Looks like you're doing great with the tracking & a 2lb loss is nothing to sniff at! Great job!!! You will see faster progress, however, if you stick closer to the bottom of your calorie range. Also, I personally NEVER adjust my calorie range (1200-1550) up to compensate for calories burned during exercise, even though I am incredibly active--kind of defeats the purpose. If you are exercising regularly, your metabolism won't slow down if you consume fewer calories. You might be a bit hungry tho :) Nice work so far & good luck!

    Sounds like you're doing all the right stuff. Just stick with it and you'll see results! I get bored easily myself and fall off the wagon. It stinks having to get back ON the wagon because you're starting all over!

    Continue to think and do positive'll get there:)
