View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
Drumroll.....wait for it.....a whopping 1.6lbs lost in 16 days.
Still, I'll take it. And its interesting to me that I have actually been averaging closer to 1300 cals/day than 1200 which is so much less painful for me than 1200. So, I have to accept that this likely translates to slower loss. Fine. Whatever. If I could just remember this hard work when I'm in maintenance - I HAVE to change how I try to maintain because what I've tried so far hasn't worked. I HAVE TO. Granted, I'm talking about 5-9 lbs, and not 50, that I keep having to re-lose, but if it makes me unhappy enough to want to lose it once regained, then I need to be able to maintain in order to break this cycle. HARUMPH. So...what's the secret, friends??
I am also doing much better on weekends so far - I've decided to focus more on 'net' on the weekends, and just doing that has probably decreased my weekend day intake by at least 500 calories. I actually don't think the net concept works for me overall, but I'll use if it gets me closer to where I need to be on the weekends.
