BDW Biggest Loser ~ Season 8

Recommended Posts

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'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?
As crazy as this seems, you may need to check if you're restricting your calories TOO much. If you're hitting the gym really hard and not eating enough to fuel all that exercise, then your body is going to go "WTF? There must be a famine. I need to store these calories instead of burning them."

Try using a tool that will give you a target caloric range based on your weight and exercise schedule. I know Sparkpeople takes those into account, and they give you a range of how much you should be eating.

Alternatively, it could also be just what everyone else is saying --more muscle gained this week.

So one of the managers in my organization is leaving and everyone went out to lunch for her yesterday (I skipped, partly because I had a ton of work to do, partly because I didn't really care for her anyway, and partly because I was pretty sure the pizza and pasta being served at the restaurant would trump my will power). Then, a bunch of people baked yummies. We had brownies, two types of chocolate chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes, peanut brittle, and a few different types of amazing looking cookie bars.

 

The guy who is heading up our weight loss challenge at work hands me a plate. I thought he was just being a gentleman and passing out plates for people. Apparently, he was trying to sabotage and only passed them out to the weight loss challenge participants!!

 

I need to get back on track. I didn't do as well this week as I did last week.
