Ive only lost/kept off 2.4lbs in a month
In December I went to the Dr for a cold and was at 311lbs and my BP was way up so I started making some small changes but nothing dramatic.
On Jan 5 when I started really counting my weight on my scale at home was 301.
I really did the best I could. Cut the pepsi completely out. Started drinking water. Using TDP and was never over 2400 calories and ussually around 1900-2000. It avereaged right about 2200 or a little lower. According to TDP even being completely sedentary 2200 calories should get 2lbs a week off.
Cut out the eating out. After 1 1/2 week cut out the 100 cal packs and low cal treats because I was relying on the sugars and overeating them. Been eating a ton more vegiges and fruit. Eating things I bever ate before like baked fish. I honestly thought I was doing pretty well. I did have one day on week 2 where I ate at Olive Garden with my sister. But since I generally enjoyed those type of meals 2-3 times a week and fast food daily I figured that would be ok.
Then this week we had no electric and I had to go to my moms. I made really bad choices Thursday and Friday but again dont really think 2 days is going to erase an entire month.
Ive also been moving and excercising more. I have a muscle disease so this is a big accomplishment for me.
So in one month Ive had 3 total "off" days and maybe 2 other meals that were a little higher than I would like but still a BIG difference from the calories I had been eating a day.
So week 1 299
week 2 297
week 3 297.6 but it was TOM so ok
today end of week 4 298.6
I started doing a 1500 cal plan yesterday and intend to do that all week. And no processed junk. I had 80 oz water yesterday. Going to see how this goes.
I know my thyroid is messed up b/c my neuro doc told me so but I cant afford to go to the Dr. so I know that is working against me but come on. Ive worked really hard! I want to see some results!
Im just whining! I know! I also know I just need to do better and keep at it.
I guess I just need a
