Suggestions Needed

Friday, July 01, 2011

I am down to needing to lose 18 more pounds to get to my target weight. I weigh 133 and want to get down to 115. My question is: is it realistic to try to lose 2 pounds a week or is 1 pound about all that is possible? I am only eating 1300 to 1400 calories a day and working out every day but the scale doesn't move more than 1 pound a week.

    They say the slower the better...and your close to your goal your body will start to fight you in weird ways at certain plateaus. I am trying to lose 15 and I just lost 3..I go up and down 5 and my body hits its comfort zone in -2 more lbs so I will have to be vigilant and will be happy for the 1 a week til I get past this plateau. I was there at one point and will want to get there again.
    Make sure your having lots of water and eating lots of fruits and veggies for the fiber too.

    Good Luck. One day at a time. Really emoticon so far
