Sister’s B-Day

Today is my sister’s birthday.
Let’s hear it for the girl!!!

It’s also Tuesday, diet update day. I hit a plateau. I had been weighing 130lbs for the past four days, until today that I weigh 129lbs. Nothing much was happening. I have been keeping track of my calorie intake and weight oscillation on Spark People (love this site, highly recommend it) and even have the graph to prove. Nothing much was happening. I think it could be a combination of things, but not sure actually why this happened, since I’ve been eating less than 1200 calories per day. Maybe it’s the mid day naps I take when I work from home. Maybe it’s the lack of exercising (besides yoga I’m doing nothing in that department). Or maybe it’s that I’m menstruating and bloated and feel like eating ice cream (Ah ice cream, remember that?) and probably retaining every single drop of water I drink. Don’t know for sure, but anyhow the update so far is that I’ve lost 7.5lbs in these two first weeks of dieting, and still have 7.5 lbs to go for the goal.

  4. joe – thanks (in her name) and yes, I figured after writing it it just might have been too much information. mond – gracias Ing, le dire.nunu – Thank you! Yes, it does take tons of discipline, determination and will-power, but once I decide something there’s no going back, so weight, be warned! ; ) The site is great isn’t it?not so little woman – thanks : )

  5. Happy B-day to your sis!I have just said goodbye to a plateau myself. They are so frustrating… but, in my case, I was not eating enough. Once I bumped up the intake just a little (with the right foods, of course) then things picked up again. This freaks me out because in my head, less food = better, not more. Need to get the eff over that and just do what my body needs. (Duh.)But, if it’s Aunt Flo time, all bets are off. That is just plain unpredictable.(Okay, end babble.)

  6. Happy Birthday sister…..and congrats on the weight loss.

  8. Happy Bday to sis! Alot of times lowering caloric intake for weight loss results in your body thinking it’s starving, and metabolism slows down. Activity levels are the key…
