Er, I’m 164.7 this morning.
And that is only because I ate a mother lovin’ brownie last night because I saw an even lower number on my scale yesterday and I still had WAY TOO MANY APs to eat. I just couldn’t eat them all yesterday. I am a failure.
But that’s the number I saw this morning.
Whisky. Tango. Foxtrot.
That’s 9.2lbs lost this month.
That is 2.3lbs per week.
That is too much and too fast.
I know I’m flippity flopping back and forth on this, being happy and sad about what numbers I’m seeing and frankly I blame the Biggest Loser (because I need a scapegoat for something because *I* am fabulous and have done NOTHING wrong here *beams* and linking to them will probably drive traffic to my site – wahooooooooo!). I DO NOT need to see huge losses every week. I DO need to see losses UNDER 2lbs per week. This rate of weight loss is not sustainable and isn’t healthy for me. Period. Full Stop.
I don’t have much to lose at this point. I really need to stop bitching about my weight. I only have 10lbs to lose until I’m in a healthy weight range for my body and 20lbs until my goal weight again. I haven’t set a deadline for it (which is a good thing) but the X-weighted challenge runs until the summer. So that’s like five months to lose 10-20lbs.
So let’s stop to smell the roses, shall we?
*breathe in/breathe out*
But for realsies, let’s pretend that I did DESPERATELY need your help & advice about slowing my weight loss the eff down, because it does need to simmah, what would you tell someone? You’re a tried and true WW’er and you know your stuff, what words of wisdom would you impart on a gal pal? Or maybe you just count your calories or follow a low carb/high protein plan, what would you do to keep your weight loss in check but still maintain a steady loss?
To give you some background, these are the mainstays in my diet for the last month:
- eggs and whole wheat toast
- almond butter and oats
- mexican rice casserole
- shepherd’s pie
- turkey chili
- tuna & whole wheat couscous
- salmon and brown rice
- whole wheat pasta with lean ground beef
- BUTTLOADS of veggies (broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, peas, carrots, mushrooms, etc.)
- Yes, even fruit. An apple every stinkin’ day. Sigh.
- And I’ve gone out for Vietnamese, Korean, Mexican, Italian and brunch a few times :P
PLUS, the past few weeks I’ve earned anywhere between 28 and 38 APs running and weight training.
Now, dispense with the advice!!!
please and thanks :)
