We All Have Been Here πŸ˜‘

Friday, February 16, 2018

I have lost a good amount of weight. I started at 287 and now I'm 216. I have not gone past my lowest in 10 years of 211. I found out recently that I do too much cardio. Secondly, eating enough for as much exercise I was doing was almost impossible. After finding these two things out I became discouraged. So here I was giving my all ( too much actually) and it was doing harm not good. We have all been there in my perspective. We think we are doing the right thing because it felt good at first then we find out we made a mistake. So I cut back on cardio and strength training. I have not been doing enough of the reduced exercise as of yet to see if it made a difference. However, I got over my pity session and went back to working on my goals. I had to change the view of half empty to half full. I'm not at the weight I want to be and I have made some mistakes. Now I know better and I can move on with hope for the future.

    Looking through some of your blogs here and feel a renewed inspiration. My daughter and I have been doing #Keto and getting great results. I know what it’s like being so close. Just keep moving forward no turning back! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

    Yes exactly, I call it the "cardio trap" and there has been some recent medical research on this - that cardio after a certain amount of time has no benefit to weight loss. Do you do any strength training? I'm trying to remind myself that I don't have to do it all this week!
