I've finally done it -- After almost a year I've lost 122 pounds. I still have some to go but I have hit the Big Slow Down.
I'm doing all the same things but my body has adjusted and isn't impressed. Not like she used to!
So -- I have cut the calories a little tighter.
Kept the carbs to no carb, lo carb.
And finally I am ABLE to exercise so I got a membership at the Y and I exercise 3-4x a week (treadmill, simple weights, a cross trainer) and am building that activity. This summer I will start swimming.
I walk at the park at least 1 a week.
I change it up -- vary my workouts, vary my calorie counts.
So how else can I fool my body? I'm 'starving' it but I don't want it to figure it out -- lol -- and shut down.
Any great suggestions? I don't believe in miracle foods. I'm pretty straight forward. If I have fats its MUFA time (olive oil, avocados, smart butter) But if there is a trick to this, I'd sure like to know.
Happily, I am still losing. Just slowly! Its not as encouraging as before.
And, I'm not going to give up!
