Biggest loser update

Oh, I'm craving cheesy, salty junk like CRAZY right now. Ugh.

In good news, I've lost about 9 pounds in my 4 weeks of TBL. I finally measured myself last night and even though I weigh less than I did at this time last summer, I'm WIDER and THICKER through various abendages and my torso. Which means I had some good muscle last summer. I'm working up to that a little more slowly and concentrating on cardio instead, just because I can drop the weight a bit faster. I'm still doing some resistance to keep it up, but that's not my focus. I think that'll work well.

The weight started coming off when I started eating more calories in the form of dairy and protein. Funky! I even added some more whole grain carbs and it seemed to help. That was a relief. I think I'm having a low calorie day today which is why I'm craving crap. I need to find a way to get the fat and protein in without ruining my day with 1000 extra calories. (But mozzarella cheese sticks, oh how I LOVE you!!) I'll figure it out, I'm sure.

This last week has had me thinking...I never ever keep at this effort long enough to see REAL results. I've lost 30 pounds in a summer, but compared to the over all gazillion I have to lose, that's really not much. And honestly, 2 months isn't long enough to get my body used to metabolizing and being more efficient and conditioned. It's just not. So...I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to push this crazy 8 weeks out into the fall and through winter until I see MAJOR results. Like, 50 pounds of results. At least. I really think I could lose that much by Christmas (including the almost 10 I've lost already) but I won't put a goal on it. I just need to find a way to keep going, even if it's not as intense as it is right now. My life gets really busy in the fall....so this will take some creativity and deep thought.

However, I feel like I do better at things when I have time to get used to them...to ramp up to them. So, I will start thinking while I have 4 weeks left of this program. :) I've considered rejoining weight watchers just so I still have that weekly weigh in, too. That might be good. We'll see.

Anyway, success is consistent, but tiny. :) That's good.

Yay for you! You're inspiring - I have gained and lost the same five pounds I think six times this summer. But I should add more protein and dairy.
