I'm feeling like setting a mini goal for myself and planning a reward to go along with it.
193 (6 pound loss) by September 30th.
For this I will buy myself lessons for an art class. I need a new hobby.
Today was good. I'm still liking the Lose it! App. I coulda/shoulda had about 400 more calories today. I need to plan my dinners so that I know how many calories I can have the rest of the day-- I really don't want to lose too fast and a very good reason was brought to my attention today
The following is hear-say, but it really made me think:
Apparently one of the Biggest Loser contestants is going to be hosting a weeklong weight-loss retreat in my neck of the woods. One of the ladies helping to set up the program was talking to me and telling me how this x-contestant needs to exercise for 2 hours a day to maintain his weight loss. I wondered out load why he couldn't cut his calories, and she said that he was down as low as he could be. I spoke to a trainer friend of mine, and she said that's because he lost his weight so fast and that's what starvation mode will do to you- mess with your metabolism.
Have any of you heard this?
Goal #1: 193 by September 30 (199/193/193) - achieved 9-30-10
