Welcome to all the newcomers and retreads
It has been awhile since I have been on the site...I have been challenged with back spasms and long days at work. Definiately not a good combination as both lead to stress. The bad news is the pain and time limitation have limited my workouts and the limited workouts, don't support my back recovery...what a vicious circle. On the other hand, my calorie deficiet countinues to be in the 1,000 calorie range, my pie chart is bang on almost every day, and my water intake is doing well. I am amazed at the correlation between my rate of wieght loss with water in take and protien intake, when I let this slip, the weight loss slows down.
What a great motivation when you get results. Today, I weighed in at 253. I screamed for joy realizing that I am close to breaking the 250lb mark. Although my goal is 155, I am amazed and proud at the progress todate. I actually have less than 100lbs to go. I trust, this success (however, small) does not remove one from the 100+ pounds to loose club
Well got to go and try to work out before going back to work..have a great night and keep on the downward trend everyone.
Well, I'm not suprised at your success!
I sound like a broken record when I say BIG deficits, reasonable protein, gobs of water and a healthy dose of sticktooitiveness are the keys to aggressive weight loss and you've done that even with your back problems--well done!
Now, let's see that scale go under 250!
