I had cut back to 1500-2000 for a couple weeks and didn't see any loss, maybe I just didn't give it enough time.

900? That doesn't sound too healthy to me... how many meals you eat? Do you drink protein shake?

Were you exercising before you started cutting calories?

This is a slow process... even if you don't see any changes there happening! Remember you look at yourself every day so you don't notice the changes right a8, but others do...

Three small meals and I have a whey protein powder I mix with water. I tend to avoid cameras.

Off and on but not consistently. I'm fine in the winter but summer time I'm always on the go and don't exercise and its just to easy to grab crap food. I will be at my lowest weight early may and highest end of Nov. I'm sure its partially not committing to exercise and partly the type of summer foods.

Why? If you have a problem confront it head on and don't be an ostrich.

Well if you weren't exercising consistently, your first couple of weeks you actually gain some water weight. Yeah, I know everyone says you lose it, but that's not really true. When you start exercising consistently, your muscles will start to look bigger, and that's because they are holding more water now that they are being used. In this case, it probably will be 3-4 weeks before you notice any big changes. That's why it's so important to also use a tape measure instead of just a scale. Get that measurement around your waist. There have been 2 or 3 weeks in a row where my scale didn't budge, but my waistline went down 3/4 of an inch.

Give it time. It's painfully slow at first, and it'll pick up as your body gets into a routine.

how are you eating these calories?
I found out when I was with my trainer that it was not WHAT I ate that was keeping the weight... it was HOW I was eating! I swear I eat more now than I did when I was a big girl!

keep in mind you didn't gain it over night and you won't lose it overnight! keep on keppin' on you will see changes





Here is a progression photo (my goal was to lose weight) my goal is to lose a little but trim back up! This was by following a strict meal plan, 1 hour work outs 3 nights a week. (we did arms and upper body Mon, lower body and legs Tues then core and Cardio Thursday) I got obsessive and started running 2 miles a day on lunch here at work, down the street, around the property and cut up through the middle. My trainer ended up upping my protein intake so that I wouldn't do muscle damage, there is a point when you can break down your muscles and start loosing it along with the fat!

My hubby loves his Body Scale! It measures all kinds of stuff, like Body Fat %, Bone Density, Water, and Muscle Mass in pounds, plus of course your weight. The key with a scale is to weigh yourself first thing in the morning. Hubby writes down and averages his numbers monthly, then by six months, and finally yearly averages.

His scale is made by Taylor, but there are a gazillion makers/models out there, Amazon, Walmart etc. You don't need a hi end model, under $40 on sale is plenty good. You have to plu-in a few numbers, age, sex, height, and activity level. Are they dead-on, probably not, but it will be consistent day after day if you're, no good if one morning you write down your numbers before breakfast and the next day wait till before going to bed. Key is like with anything in life, you got to be consistent.

Lastly, it gives you the number of calories it takes to maintain your current weight, and then the number of calories you should consume at your ideal weight, which is based mostly on Body Fat %!

My hubby for example needs to consume approximately 3,300 calories a day for his ideal weight! The more muscle the body has the more calories it needs to consume/maintain. Protein in every meal! Plus all you can eat veggies and fruit! NO PROCESSED FOODS - EVER!!!

I assume you mean what kind of foods do I eat. A lot of chicken, most snacks are fruits I will eat a few carbs but not much. I do have a weekness for peanut putter and have a small spoon full like every other day. I do have one fountain diet pop 3or4 days a week.

You have made some big changes congrats
