After reading a lot of post on this site it seems many people reach a point where their no longer losing weight. I follow the mfp guidelines and have been very successful so far. I have gone from 305 to 278 in 5 weeks. Thats 27 pounds in 5 weeks. I don't exercise very much, golf and walking. But I discovered something a little odd so far in the process. I have been on other diets and have lost 5 to ten pounds in the beginning but seem to slow down after the initial shock to my body. That got me thinking if the shock is the trigger maybe I need to keep pulling it. Over the past 5 weeks their has been days where I'm under my calorie intake. Not trying it just happens. And of coarse at least once a week I've gone 300 to 400 over. Usually this happen on a weekend and of coarse the next day feeling guilty for indulging, I quickly go and weigh myself.
Guess what each time I have lost more weight not gained it. Long ago when I weight trained my trainer said no matter what I have to have one day a week where I pick a meal and let my food regiment go. He said it was to keep me sane. I think it was to tell my body that I'm not trying to starve it. I am keeping it in a constant state of awareness.
Anyway does anyone think that there is something to this? Or am I thinking way to hard?
