Stuck in the 170's

Thursday, January 01, 2009

I am having trouble getting out of the 170's. I saw 169 one day before Christmas and the next week I was back up to 172. I play over and over in my mind--- what I am not doing right ---and can't figure it out. The only thing that may be causing the problem is carbohydrates. I always seem to hold it within the daily allowances, but when I look at the numbers, I feel as though I am taking in too many. I have thought about trying one of the low carb diets, but I think that is against the principles I am working to attain. I think that rather than cutting out carbs for periods of time, I need to re-evaluate the types of carbs I am consuming. I have already, for the most part, cut out the white carbs---- white bread, white rice, ---- and replace them with browns. The only white carb vice I am still holding on to is the white sugar I put in my coffee. 2 cups in morning and 2 in the evenings-- 2 tsp for each cup. I don't like the taste of honey in my coffee. Who knows. I know this ---- I am going be 165 by my birthday ---- January 29th.

I did not meet my goal---- but I am not giving up. I will regroup and begin again.

    We'll both get out of our plateaus with the bootcamp. Extra exercise really does help. All of the weight I lost last year came off due to extra exercise -- I was having dance practice 5X/week to prepare for a show. As soon as I stopped the extra practices, I gained back 2 pounds without much change in diet. So, let's get exercising! Have you done today's bootcamp workout yet? You can do this!
