Re: Josie 2.0

I'm sure you can see I carry most of my weight in my lower half; hips, ass and thighs. I feel like even if I weighed 110 lbs I'd still have a big ass and thighs. it is what it is.

Yes, that's boneless/skinless chicken thighs cooked in the slow cooker. It was okay but not as good as baked.

Re: Josie 2.0

So we're early 40's, 5'1.5", 148 pounds. Looking to drop to 130 and add definition/tone.

Your "normal" calorie usage makes losing weight from strictly caloric reduction pretty challenging. IANAE, but if it were me, I'd try to eat 1300 calories (maint) on a regular basis, and train 3x weights/core/yoga. I know everyone is saying SS, which is great because it gives you a schedule, but I'm not sure the big 3 lifts are how I'd tackle this. Personally, body weight training and yoga with some barbell work. The other 3x a week I'd do cardio. Pick something you enjoy that gets your heart rate up. Just realize that the longer you do it, the more efficient your body becomes at it.

This might not be a quick drop. Be aware that it may take a while.

FYP

Really sound advice that will not go to waste. Ty.

I know it's not going to be fast but I'm hoping things will start moving in the right direction again. At the gym now!

Re: Josie 2.0

Tues 4/25/17 I was too under in calories and protein.
70g protein
57g fat
79g carbs

Disregard those goals shown in mfp. Not my goals. Quite frankly my goal for now is to hit 120 G protein every day.

Re: Josie 2.0

I usually bring my lunch but I took out the admin girl for professional admin day. I chose wisely. Grilled shrimp, salad and steamed veggies I'm going to have chicken at 4pm today (second lunch) to up my protein. Meeting w personal trainer tonight.

Re: Josie 2.0

Made an effort to get more protein in and I'm pretty stoked I broke 100 grams. Gonna try like hell to hit 125g tomorrow. I'm about to make some turkey burgers and roasted veggies for tomorrow's lunch & dinner. Now that I think of it I could add a small turkey burger to tomorrow's breakfast. That might get me to 125g protein.

Protein 107g
Fat 55g
Carbs 69g
Calories 1099

I'll post mfp screen shots separately via Tapatalk but again disregard the goals mfp gave me.

Re: Josie 2.0

Met with personal trainer last night and told him I want to lift heavy.

He suggested I work on all the weight machines for a couple of weeks, then he'll so me how to use the barbell and weights. Fair enough! As it is the machines pretty much kicked my ass. Did upper and lower body and then....I took a zumba class.

Zumba pros: I sweated my ass off. When I was done I'd sweated through my sports bra and the tshirt on top. Also enjoyed the music.

Zumba cons: Teacher sucked IMO. She wasn't consistent with her steps and so many arm and hand variations. For most of the hour she had us bend at the knees stick out our asses and pretty much, twerk! WTF I guess I know how to twerk now. Weirdest part is she jumped right in front of me and started wiggling her ass in my crotch as I was twerking on demand. Seriously. Also - I found it odd that zumba teacher was heavier than me. Not that it mattered, she was able to wiggle her ass for an hour, but still. I found myself thinking "If Zumba is good for weight loss why is she heavy?"

Got home and prepped/cooked food for today. I made a few lean ground turkey burgers, using Trader Joe's "Everything But The Bagel" seasoning and turmeric. I also sliced some sweet potatoes and roasted the half rounds in the oven with just pam spray, salt and cinnamon. Sooo good. I also sauteed broccoli, green peppers and onions in olive oil. I took some pics during the cooking which I'll post in a few.

Having a honey crisp apple and 1 turkey burger for breakfast. Prolly won't do that again - not enjoying it. I thought it would be a good way to get extra protein but Imma stick with eggs and ham for breakfast....along with my honey crisp apple.

BTW totally addicted to honey crisp apples now...soooooo good, sweet and crisp. I highly recommend except for their expense. OMG pricey. Usually runs me $2 each. I'm worth it.

Hey Josie,

1. I think you look great already!
2. I was curious about metabolism shift over time. Were you always a small eater? Could you paint a progression over time to 1300/day?

(I'm mid 30's and recently had to accept that I can now only choose 2/3 from: not exercise, drink, eat like an angry man. :/)

Good luck reaching your goals!

Thanks Kristy!

It's been a long haul. I was at my absolute heaviest when I started. I started with just removing items from my diet but not calorie counting. No diet soda, ever again. Moved on to, no bread or pasta at all. Moderation just never worked for me and once I start, it's hard to stop. So I kept removing all bad carbs from my diet and moving more. Easy stuff and lost some weight pretty fast.

It was tough for the first month or 2. I would eat cashews, almonds, peanuts and cheese instead of bad carbs. Yes, they are high in fat and calories but it helped me break the addiction. I also would drink protein shakes in the early days, which I dislike, but they'd keep me full.

After a while in order to keep losing weight, I'd have to keep on reducing my calories, which I track on mfp. And as I lost weight, I started moving more and more.

I still have a ****ty metabolism, most women in their late 40's do, but mine is below avg imo. Plus being short doesn't help - shorties get less calories.

For the last few months I just couldn't lose weight - but things like crackers and potato chips were finding their way back into my diet. (never banished them lol)

For the moment I'm doing 1,200 to get weight loss moving again, and trying to keep it to real food (not crackers from a box which I love).

Anyway, GL! My best advice would be to replace bad carby things with high fat yummy things until your body no longer craves the shiat. That worked for me to get me started.

Re: Josie 2.0

To answer your question,

I was always a small eater as far as meals go - but would binge on big amounts of food. I'd eat a normal dinner and not want more, but a couple hours later would down a chocolate bar, a bag of chips, a couple slices of pizza, maybe a muffin or cookies too.

I never want to overeat reg food - its the bad food that I couldnt control myself with.

Re: Josie 2.0

The huge majority of people who think they have bad metabolism are really just overeating / not moving around enough, plain and simple. As a short female >40yo, your total daily energy expenditure will be on the low side, but statistically, you aren't that likely to have a substantially slower metabolism than other women your age and height.

As a 5'5" male at 160lb, I had great results cutting at between 1300-1400 calories, with virtually no cardio and 3 days (eventually 4) of lifting. As I increased my lifting frequency and volume, I was able to maintain a 1-1.5lb / week rate of loss with somewhat higher calories (1500-1600). At 5'2" and 148lb, being somewhat older than me and a female, you'll probably want to go with around 80-90% of my cutting calories, so 1150-1250 sounds about right.

Another thing is that you should probably get used to the concept of slow weight loss. Think of it more as % of body weight per week rather than pounds per week. Early on, 1% should be doable and after 10-15lb of loss that will probably slow to 0.75%, or just under a pound per week. Your menstrual cycle will probably cause water weight fluctuations, so just weigh every morning and keep a moving average spreadsheet. Expect that average to go down by 0.5% to 1% per week, and as long as that's happening you shouldn't have to change anything at all.

Thanks Rav!

Ive been reading here and thinking why not use this great resource to finish what I started.

Diet Soda, imo is full of addictive chemicals and I loooooooooved it soooo much. I could knock back about 4 a day. The problem with me is, I always ATE something with it. Mind you, healthy foods never went well with my Diet coke, but candy, cookies, chips, pizza, sandwiches, they all went great with it.

I couldn't eat without Diet Coke and I couldn't drink Diet Coke without eating and I always wanted it. Prolly my strongest addiction (save weed).

I switched to diet ginger ale, first, which i liked but didn't lurve like DC. Finally after a month of diet ginger ale, I told myself soda is no longer in your life. I haven't had a sip of it in 18 months.

What I'm saying is Diet Coke made me crave food. Plus God knows what else it's doing to one's body.

I may have pizza again, but I will NEVER open the diet coke door again.

Now I drink iced coffee - yes too much.
