Keep on keeping on

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

It appears that I allowed my body to slip into starvation mode. Loosing weight was very difficult and slow so I kept lowering my calories and now it doesn't want to budge at all. The good news is I have increased calories to the 1500 range. The weight is still not moving but I have not gained either. What this means is I probably will not meet my 5% challenge this time. But I continue on as my exercise miles helps the team. I will give my body a couple of weeks to reset and then I should start loosing again. My body is still toning as I have gone from a size 20 to an 18. Not so bad, but I really want to hit that 100 pounds lost mark! I ten pounds to go on that goal, I will not give up. I can't fail if I don't quit!

    Just because you have stalled for now doesn't mean it wont pick back up once you get your body back to eating enough calories that you don't drop a lot at once. We still have like 4 more weigh-ins you can still meet your 5% or get close! You can do it!! emoticon emoticon

    Don't give up... you can do it!! That's great that you're fitting into a smaller size... sometimes the scale isn't our friend, but a tape measure can me!! GREAT JOB so far!!

    My plateau hit around's frustrating.

    Somehow weight does come off, but not every week like it used to be! Other meassures are very important to focus on! Like you said all we can do is keep on!
    Good Job so far! And we can get there!
