Thanks Michelle. Yes, I'm totalling about 700 calories most days. With 400 gone on the treadmill, I should be getting quite large deficits going. I'm actually a little surprised I'm not still losing faster than I am. I know. Patience is a virtue.

Uncomfortable flirting with a stall....

Sea - OH my, I didn't do the math! Only 700 cals a day PLUS working out? I'd be in the grip of a massive headache all the time, I'd feel just terrible! Amazing that you can maintain that, you must have incredible will power! Do you feel good most of the time?

So long as I stay away from the caffeine and take my CoQ10 I seem to do okay re: the headaches. My dr. has already given me the okay to be hungry (because I am so overweight that I qualified for wls and have other problems as a result). So my head is okay, but my stomach complains. The hardest part is pushing through to an hour on the treadmill on stored fat calories.

It's slowing !

Sea-Thanks for the Congrats on goal. I usually don't count it until after I am below the desired weight for a few days in a row. Usually I bounce around for awhile before I actually go down in weight. Nowadays the bouncing is lasting more like a couple weeks than a couple of days. That's cool with me as long as I am heading in the right direction.

Sea-I am a little confused about your disappointment with your loss. If your deficit is 1100 a day, shouldn't that be about 2 pounds a week? (7 x 1100 =7700. It takes 3500 calorie deficit to lose 1 pound.) You do not have to go hungry to lose weight. I find the key is to eat nutritionally rich but relatively low calorie food (fruits and vegetables) including protein at every meal. Two pounds a week is great. It really adds up. Plus hopefully we develop habits to maintain a healthy weight the rest of our lives

I'm just impatient. I know. I've been down this road before. Still, I admit, I'd like to keep it moving at the rate it starts out at.

I can figure deficit numbers all I want; for some reason, this is the only level at which I lose. As low as 1050 calories, I start gaining again. But I'm grateful to have figured out a plan that works for me, and that the plan is something I can live with. I'm not experiencing hunger at the degree I was at the first of the month. The body is adjusting.

My food choices are pretty sound choices - whole grains, fresh fruit, steamed veggies, protein (low fat, of course). My favorite condiment is mustard. The only junky thing I've eaten was a little Batch 83 bbq sauce at Quiznos. As it turns cooler, I'll switch my Special K for oatmeal. At this level, it would be crazy to waste calories on junk.

Staying on plan all month is correcting my relationship with food. I was going to stray yesterday but couldn't bring myself to do it.

I eat about 1500 to 1700 cals a day, mostly veggies and lean proteins and fruit, no processed foods, no snacky type foods (no pretzels, pita chips, etc), very few high glycemic carbs (no white breads or pastas or that sort of stuff). No junk food and no food "treats".

And I exercise almost every day, but mostly walking and various aerobic DVDs. Pretty moderate exercise really, nothing over the top.

You are so close to your goal, weight loss always slow then, I'll be happy if I lose 5 pounds next month also, this month is exceptional for me.

Sea-I understand. You are just adjusting to your new food. Good, I just did not want to see you go hungry unnecessarily. Congrats on your many pounds lost.

MyMichelle-I pretty much eat and exercise in the same way as you except I do have treats. Most of my meals are very simple. Thanks for the congratulations and way to go on your awesome weight loss this month.

My Michelle: No fair, 1500 - 1700 calories a day! I'm sooo jealous, I have to cut mine down to at least 1,100 a day to lose a pound a week, with exercise. But to be honest you probably eat much more healthy food, while I'm really focused on portion control, because I am a HUGE bored/binge eater. Congrats on the no junk food though, I have to plan at least one unhealthy treat every two days, it's what keeps me on track.
Congrats on your weight-loss this month, that's a great achievement!
