Default The last 10 pounds...or so

Hi
I am looking for some other phase 1 ers who are trying to lose the last 10 pounds!
I find it somewhat discouraging to read the daily thread and see all those big losses. I am very happy for the "losers", but the scale is moving very slowly for me now!

I did ip last year and got down to within 5 pounds of my goal. I maintained there until Christmas, and in jan was up about 5.

So I started phase 1 again january 2 looking to lose 13 pound. It is slow going!

I am trying more of the recipes to keep myself interested!

Is anyone else in the same boat?

You might try the "Experienced" thread. Lots of the people in there are nearing the end of their journey and quite a few are getting back on P1 after the holidays to take off the weight gained during that time. I would venture to say that most of the people in there are relatively close to goal.

I have a little more than 50 to go. And I am feeling like I've lost some steam as well... I was having so really good losses. But now nothing much in 3 weeks.

Your last 3 weeks have been out of your control, once things get back to "normal" things will happen again!

I have 20 lbs to go and yes, I feel like it is a struggle. I have lost 80 lbs now (28 lbs on IP) the rest by calorie counting and it has been a long road.

I am in that same boat. I need to loose 13lbs and it has been very slow for me. A pound or half a pound a week. Its not only hard but expensive as well. I am trying to speed things up by trying to incorporate some excersise

I exercise 6 days a week. It is not helping. In fact, my coach insists she thinks I will lose faster if I stop, but I don't want to!

Instead I have added a restricted packet instead of a pudding.

I guess it's all trial and error...

Jelly - you are doing amazing... you know I am a slow loser, but believe me the end results are worth it. Not that I am at the end yet, but getting there!

I have 15 -20 lbs to go and yes it is harder to stay focused, but a trip to Ireland the end of march/first week of april is my motivation

I've been trying to lose the last 20 lbs for the past 10 years

what I have found though is that the less I exercise (when I did WW) the more I would lose.

so you might want to cut back to 3 days a week instead of your usual 6

sometimes we're not feeding our bodies enough and to exercise on top of it causes it to hold on to the fat

good luck

I think you're coach and Trinique are on to something and I'm not convinced it's all trial and error. It's a plan.

It just seems wrong somehow that exercising would hinder weight loss so much! What I am burning if I am only eating 900 calories a day and I work out for a hard 60 minutes?

It shows why "exercise and a sensible diet" will never work for most people!

To prove them even more right I skipped yesterday's workout and am suddenly down 2 pounds...

On the body analysis scale my hydration numbers are always very high. Maybe it is water retention form working out...

I want to see a loss this Friday. Maybe I will stay out of the gym until Saturday!

Do it!! I am really curious to see if it affects it. Personally I haven't started working out yet (I'm on the fence), but if it hinders weight loss early on I can imagine the last few lbs are almost impossible to get off. Please keep us posted!

I work out often as well (5-6 days a week) and have cut it back dramatically since it was hindering my losses too much.
