Ok - so it has been 2.5 months now and I'm still at 184. That is what I weighed in at this morning - last night - last weekend...
I will admit - I AM ecstatic that i'm DOWN those 12 pounds - but at the same time, I'm very frustrated...The first week of March I was in the gym 5 days. Last week (second week) I had that "tom" and granted, didn't go - but this week, the third week - i've been back at the gym full force 3 times and i plan on making tonight my 4th time this week.
I'm honestly beginning to reallllly think about cutting out splenda / sweetness all together - which also includes my hot tea in the morning as well as my iced tea with lemon when I go out.
This will be hard - but I have to do SOMETHING. I'm SO close to being back in the 170's I can taste it - but at the same time it feels SOOO far away. :(
Now, one AWESOME thing is that I AM fitting into my two pair of size 13 juniors jeans again - which is AWESOME - but that scale won't budge.
I truly am beginning to think - for me - i'm so incredibly "insulin resistant" / have metobolic syndrome so bad that even the taste of sweet (whether it's got sugar or not) raises my insulin and becase of that I'm having a hard time actually LOSING the weight.
And that sucks because I LIKE all my splenda/liquid syrups but those might be making me stall.
Same with the almonds. I've moved up to the nuts ring - but I think I need to move back down to induction. At least for a week and see how that pans out. I want to try and go as "sweet free" as possible ofr Monday March 22 - Saturday march 28 and see if that helps - also with working out 5 times/week, obviously.
Now, they say that 3500 calories = 1 pound. I average only 500 calories burned per workout...and 5 days is ONLY 2500 calories, not 3500...so I'm going to have to up that by 200 calories a day - meaning I will have to do BOTH cardio AND resistance next week 5 x week.
I'm also going to go back to journaling religiously everything that goes in my mouth next week and figure out the protein/carbs/fat percentages.
well that is all as I need to get back to work.
I also plan on posting new pics soon.
