Hello all. So good news is I’ve lost 30lbs since mid June. 😁👍🏽 Very excited about that.
So here’s the so-so part. I have my calorie deficit set at 2lbs per week. I’m not expecting to lose 2lbs every week but I figure between 1-1.5lbs would be good. But I’m noticing my weight loss is slowing down to a trickle.
To answer the questions I know are coming 😉. Yes I weigh about 95% of my food on a scale in oz. I always add an extra 100 calories to account for anything I may have tasted while preparing food. I go over my daily calorie intake maybe 2x per month. I usually drink water but on the occasion I have an iced tea I weigh that out too. I HATE exercise but I do walk approx 3 miles 5x per week and although I work from home I’m up and down stairs 1/2 the day so I usually get my 10k steps in.
Now, although I’m at or under calories each day, I probably can work on the actual macros about carbs/protein/veg. My job can be a bit stressful at times (teacher) and I’m also taking care of a sick parent so that can add onto my stress. Dr checkup went well...nothing alarming.
Sooooo...is it just my body being stubborn for a while & it doesn’t want to let go of the weight? I’m currently 258 (5’9”) and I’ll be happy at 225...I’m not even looking to hit onederland (tried that before and it was a hot mess). I’m not giving up...and if it takes a while so be it but when a bunch of things in your life are all over sometimes something being somewhat on schedule can help keep the calm.
Be gentle 😉
