Slow and steady

Friday, September 14, 2012

Lost a pound over the last week, yahoo! I'm surprised it's not more, given how low my calorie intake has been vs. exercise. Must be some truth in eating more when you work out hard in order to lose the weight.

Next week will be another experiment as I eat more calories and continue to work out hard.

    emoticon emoticon Great job on the pound lost!!!!

    Funny how we are so hard on ourselves but when it comes to other's achievements, its easy to be so supportive. ;)

    Any ways, that's 1lb out of 60 lbs or so that you've lost?! That's fantastic and inspirational.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog today. :)

    Don't forget that when you're exercising your actually building muscle which weighs heavier than fat so check your inches too don't always rely on the scales, you may find that the weight comes off a bit more once your muscles have reached their peak so as to speak...continue what you're doing it's obviously working but try mixing up your exercises a little more try not to stick to a routine, this can also help with weight loss as your body becomes used to the sedentary routine.

    Don't lower your calorie intake to much as the body then goes into starvation mode, storing fat just in case it needs it later, your body needs the energy for exercising, just try not to go over your daily requirement of calories.

    Hope this helps a little. Good luck.

    I've found that I lose more when I eat my full range of calories on days I work out harder than normal.
