I've been holding steady on the scale for almost 12 weeks!
Dropping and gaining the same 2 pounds without fail!
I'm also on Red, I also work out an hour a day most days.
In the first 3 weeks on program I dropped 12 pounds!
I went to the COD with a smile on my face and left with a smile on my face today.
Why? Inches! Inches! Inches!
Working out means putting on muscle, muscle weighs double what fat weighs. According to the scale I've lost 14.5 pounds, but I look like I've lost 30 something.
I'm lucky in the sense that I have supportive COD managers who both lost massive weight on program so they understand what I'm going through. Instead of telling me to redo my whole diet (believe me I've tried to convince them I need to go down to gold, they refuse to budge
) they reworked with me to set goal for when I get my waist to the size I want. Which as of today is less than an inch away. Have your trainer measure your body fat, I'm sure it's a lot lower than what you started at.
As for the eating, I do 6 mini meals a day with only the last one of the night not containing any protein. On a typical day my meal breakdown is something like this:
- 1/2 P, F, S
- Lite, D or F
- P, 2 Vs
- Lite, F or D
- P, 2Vs, S
I add the fat in where it seems to fit best, some days it's with lunch, some dyas it's shredded coconut worked in with the Dairy. If you notice I break my exchanges up so I never eat anything on it's own. I leave for work at 5 am, so you can just imagine how tough it is to eat breakfast most mornings.
Hang in there, keep your head up, and just remember how much healthier and smaller you are!
