Princess, you hit a note with me!!!!! Yes, down .4# is down, but it's not down enough is it? Good for you for getting tough.
My dd has set some tough guidelines for herself, but she wants to lose 2# a week and this is what she does:
food at 1100 daily
hard 3X week.
on the other days she makes sure she walks enough to hit 10000 steps. She's at work and walks her work rather than e-mailing it.
Weekends are tough, but she uses extra calories if she has earned the activity points. She also bought the $100 fitbit to give her something "new" to make this more interesting and be a change of pace. It tracks her sleep, her calories, and her exercise.
As far as you, I think I might definitely not use the activity points. Do you lose weight when you use the 49 points plus for the week? If you do, yay!
I might consider cutting those points plus down to 25 for the week and see if that speeds up the weight loss process. Just my ideas. I hear how badly you want to lose weight.
Me too. This week, staying at 1200 calories I have a net loss of 3#. Now my new goal is 2# down this week again and I'll get there. I'll set up a weight tracker for us online here. Do you want to make Saturday the WI day?
Here's my plan:
1. exercise of some type 4Xweekly (when dh is up to it, boardwalk, otherwise
at home or gardening or swimming.....but something)
2. food 1200 calories daily
That's it!!!! That works for me right now. Our WW leader pointed out we have 12 weeks until Labor Day. I'd like to be at 175# by then. I'll need to lose almost 2#/weekly to achieve that, but I know I can do it as long as I don't lose focus. These pre-packaged WW froz. dinners help. With a salad or cooked veggies, they are fine! Good luck to us all.
Love you all. Any other ideas?
