Default Weight loss in ONEderland- what's different??

It's a whole new game, that's for sure. I've had plenty of time to get used to howto lose weight above 200lbs, but now, it seems so much harder.

So, my question is, for those of you who have successfully lost weight while in ONEderland, what do you do, what do you eat, and how much does it cause you to lose per week?

Thanks!

Default Woot Woo!

Frist off- congratulations! You've done so well, I hope you are as proud of yourself as you deserve to be.

Secondly, I'll be looking for the answers to that question too as I've sort of slowed down lately. Then again, I know the answer. I simply need to do more than I'm doing now.

If you haven't all ready, you could join the Summer Biggest Loser Challenge. That might provide some kick-it-in-the-butt motivation.

1st goal- ONEDERLAND! Check!
2nd goal- Less than 194 (a number I've been stuck at before) CHECK!
3rd goal- Reach the 180's- haven't been there since 1999. CHECK!
4th goal- 180 which means hitting the 50 lbs. lost mark! Check!
5th goal- Switching to size goals now more than pounds goals. Goal is to make it to size 12, at whatever weight that happens. CHECK!
6th goal- Size 10! (can't even believe this is possible!)
7th goal- Size 8 and MAINTAIN!

I've only slightly slowed down: the first 25lbs at 2.65lbs a week, the next 14 at 2.04lbs a week.

I've found it easier though, somehow getting through the 200 barrier gave me such a mental boost. I'm not at the stage where I've been doing it right for so long that I can't imagine doing it wrong .

wow, good for you Ailidh! What are you doing that you've been losing so quickly? How many calories do you eat and how much do you exercise?

Well I've always had a really hard time losing weight, mostly because of my carb sensitivity, but it is getting harder as I get smaller, of course. Currently I've cut out all sugar and I don't eat carbs (except for vegetables) after lunch. Right now my calories are 1200-1400, though I generally land right in the middle of that range. I know I'm going to have to work harder to go lower as I lose more weight, and I'm not really looking forward to it, but it'll be worth it when I FINALLY reach goal.

My workouts are pretty much the same as they've ever been, but the intensity keeps going up. I spin 3x a week, run on the treadmill once a week, upper body weights twice a week, plus lower body weights and some hill climbing in the Tennessee hills on Sundays. On Mondays I do an hour of yoga, and a couple times a week I try to get up really early to fit in a 20-minute 30 day shred session or a half hour walk/run outside before work.

That's a lot of working out! Building muscle really helps my lazy metabolism keep going, though, and the smaller the number on the scale gets, the easier it is for me to stick to my routine.
