BDW Biggest Loser ~ Season 8

Recommended Posts

Ok girls... I'm starting to feel like my efforts are wasted. I've been working out 5-7 days a week for 4 weeks (an hour each day)... I've only lost 3-4 pounds. From last week I am the same! UGH! I've been restricting my calories to under 1500. It seems like a huge change compared to my lifestyle before... I would think I should be dropping weight a little faster. I'm not giving up by any means but it's just getting frustrating. What is working for people?

Ok trying again for a 3rd time. Dang computer.

 

I've been working out for 4 weeks - usually 6 days a week (1 day of strength training and the rest cardio). i'm only down 4 pounds... while I AM happy to be down... I just feel like I should be down more... the weight is just barely coming off and in fact this week i'm the same weight as last. I've been eating about 1500 calories or less... which is a big change from where I was before I started this plan. Any ideas what my problem is? What is working for everyone else?

Swankster - don't get discouraged! It's probably a smaller loss because you are gaining muscle in the process, which is a GOOD thing! :) The more muscle you have, the more calories your body is going to burn at rest.

I agree with Kathy - if you are going to the gym for an hour 6 days a week then you are def building muscle! If you want, you could keep track of inches too - it may be a better way for you to look at it? Keep up the amazing job!

That is what it came down to for me too! I would rather have that cookie and I can if I drink a Diet Coke instead. And once you get used to it it doesn't taste so strange lol!!

Well I was down just a few ounces this week. But I guess considering I cheated a bit when FI's parents stayed with us last weekend that isn't too bad, could have been worse.

queendiva, i absolutely feel your pain. my FI came home with a huge bag of mcdonald's at MIDNIGHT over the weekend, asking if i wanted any. well of course i *want* mcdonald's! should i? hell no! (i didn't ... yay me)

i almost kicked his ass tho when he plopped the bag right in front of me and then proceeded to NOT EAT IT until about 20 minutes later. i had to sit there and smell it and salivate until i finally screamed at him "are you eating it or not?! wtf?!?!"
Oh wow! I'm so glad you understand my pain. I know what they say about not depriving yourself, and eating in moderation, but I have to do what works for me. I have absolutely NO self control what so ever!! If I have a little of something, you better believe it's gonna end up being a LOT! What works for me is not even going there... glad you didn't eat the McDonalds wink.gif

Down a pound :)

 

I can say I am loving the way Im feeling with each workout. I forgot how great it feels to get stronger!

 

Coke....soda is my BIGGEST weakness. Ive tried to do those 100 calorie cans, and sometimes it works. I just get so sick of drinking water all the time. Ive tried a few ways, but anyway suggestions on how to kick this habit. I shouldnt be drinking my calories!

good job so far this week everyone! I'm down a pound from last week, so that's amazing for me since I don't usually lose that much per week! :)

 

Mel - I only drink pop once per week....I actually find that I am so used to drinking water all the time that pop and stuff usually tastes too sweet now and it turns me off lol. I am strange! :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
