Post from 280’s Ladies Thread:
So my weight loss buddy and I have been discussing changing up our routine as we just aren’t losing the weight in the strategy I came up with (calorie deficits) and it is very frustrating. She loses weight easier than I do and I hate to say this but I am SO green with jealousy! Reallllly green! I desperately want to be in the 260’s by next weighin..which is Tuesday. Below is our new strategy:
Calorie Zigzagging and more set weigh ins:
Tuesday: 1800 — Weigh in
Thursday: 1800 –Weigh in
Saturday: 1800–Weigh In
I know I have critized in the past about weighing daily. I was really stuck on it for the longest time. It’s less stressful to weigh once a week but I have to face the facts. Weighing in more often made me take responsbility and I was more successful at losing weight. SO instead of becoming obsessed with daily, we compromised on 3days a week and those days will be our higher calorie days.
I am also looking into the book- Belly Fat Cure. I don’t know if you ladies have looked into it or not but I have been hearing good things as well as that it is very similar to South Beach. Anyone know? Anyway, this is one of the few book diets that my WLP (weighloss partner) and I have actually come to an agreement on. Surprisingly. We might give it a try and incorporate into our zigzagging.
So as you can see from my post I have made some slightly altered decisions on continuing weight loss. I really need to get on track here. I have 25 more lbs to lose in 2 1/2 months. UGHHH! thats 10 lbs a month still. Good Lord! Need to get my ass up off the couch!!!!!
I am happy to say however that I did get to 272 after my emotions calmed down from gaining 2 lbs from my period. I should know that its water weight, but it is still shocking none the less. Woowoo, so that was 1 lbs last week…considering the crazy mood swings and minor binges on carbs and sweets! Haha, woes of being a woman. Well I really am hoping to be down to 269/270 by Tuesday. This morning I was back up a pound but I deserved that. I went out with a girlfriend of mine and had a drink and quite a bit of bread..and pasta….and butter…!! AHH I know but I ‘m not going to stress about it. It was my guilty pleasure this week and I am right back on track today!!
