Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Im on track to loose 1.4lbs this week; I got to hit my target 1400-1500 for the rest of the week though. I want to be under 280 by Friday.

I know everyone is saying not to watch the lbs, but I cant help it.....I need something to visualize. Maybe ill focus less on the scale when I do measurements at the end of the month, then I can focus on inches lost.

Today was a very lazy day. I was in bed for half the day and on the couch the other half. I only walked for about 5mins total all day.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Just go with what works for you. When I'm cutting weight, I weigh myself daily. I'm sure that's probably not recommended by anyone, but it works really well for me.

If you find that you start getting discouraged, then maybe focus less on the scale and just hitting your calorie targets.

IMO, if you want to tally up an exact number of pounds you should be losing, you should use a conservative estimate of your TDEE and keep a running sum of your calorie deficit divided by 3500. This can be your scoreboard, and if you constantly eat a 1000 calorie deficit it will go up by exactly two pounds per week.

Your body, on the other hand, is going to have weeks where you lose 4 pounds, one pound, or no pounds. You might even gain on some weeks despite what the math says. Especially in your case considering you're a woman with a menstrual cycle that is going to dramatically affect the water balance of your body depending what part of the cycle you're on. I'm a dude and my weight is remarkably stable give or take one pound, so I pretty damn well know if I'm losing weight or I'm not. For women it is different.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I don't think I've ever seen a recipe for stuffed peppers where the meat isn't cooked prior to stuffing? We brown the meat, add cooked brown rice, some black beans, maybe some rotel tomatoes and peppers for flavor, and boil the peppers. Stuff, bake for 30 to 45 minutes, top with cheese and bake until melted.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

That's looks good w/o the rice.
I don't really follow recipes when I cook; I just make it up as I go.
The ones I made turned out to be amazing! I think some diced tomatoes and onions would make em even better.

ymmv but I like to boil the peppers briefly (there's a term for this) prior to stuffing & baking to get them a little softer.

I still can't shake off doing this like all the time.

For a while I tried to utilize the strategy of measuring not by set time intervals but instead reducing variance in the perceived physical state each time I stepped on a scale. This was even worse because so often every morning you sort of are in an indistinguishable state.

It is sort of counter-intuitive though as to what demotivates and deflects one from their goals more - seeing the scale go up even though you've worked your ass off or seeing it be lower than you expected.

I found it was when I saw it move down too quickly is what made me have more cheat days or loosen up the restrictions.

I guess everyone has different reactions but I would also go with whatever works or feels best.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Had a blast playing volleyball. I'm going to start going once a week.

I'm definitely feeling old and all the bones in my feet feel like they are broken. I got some good hits in, but I cannot jump anymore.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Weighed in at 282.4 this week; the same as last week.

I was calorie deficient everyday and exercised all week. Maybe next week will be better.

My wife is the same way; she gets anxiety even looking at one while she cooks.

I'm a chemist, so following a recipe is kind of my thing.

Great progress in this log; keep it up!

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I haven't tracked my calories in a few days, but there were my dinners for the past two days. I've started cooking a lot more and cooking healthy. I made a turkey meatloaf and grilled mozzarella stuff chicken.

Are you planning to start tracking calories again, or do you think it's no longer necessary?

I'm going to track starting again today. It has really helped with my eating habits. I'm also full on a lot less food now.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Good luck with your goals and don't get frustrated if you either stay flat or even gain a little weight at first. Your trend will be downward in the long run if you keep a calorie deficit and you're able to exercise a couple times per week.

The above sounds like something out of a music video from the 80s.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

El d,

Would be great if you can tell me where i was wrong in what i said , especially about the walking rather then exercising for maximum weight loss for MLYLT at this stage, if this is where you are saying my reasoning is very wrong.

Cheers


MLYLT, sorry for derail, but probably useful for you to know also
