I think this is the last week...?

Fit & Fabulous Fall Challenge

Week 7 Mini Challenge:

Challenge Yourself to try a new activity/push yourself harder in your current activity.

--> I have been challenging myself by going to the gym 5 days a week for the last 2 or 3 weeks. This week, I was there for an hour each day- mostly on the elliptical or the arc trainer. I love those things. I will burn between 500 and 700 calories per workout.
--> Also, I've been trying to stick to around 1500 calories at least 5 out of 7 days. Doing really well with that too. Been working on this for about the last 2 weeks. Also, not eating all the calories I burn.
--> If I do the above, I am working on a 1200-1400 calorie deficit for 5/7 days, An average of 6500 calorie deficit for 5/7 days and a 1400 calorie deficit for the other 2 days... Total of 7900 calories per week or over 2 lbs.

I feel good about the effort I am putting into this It is being reflected in the scale, but not at the rate it should be. Does anyone have any ideas why or some tips for me? Sometimes, I feel like I am working so hard on this plan and that the numbers just don't add up. I know I complain about this a lot, but why is it so easy for some others to drop 3+ lbs per week? Or drop 7 lbs in their first week of diet/exercise? I'm jealous of all of you!

I'm going to keep trying for my 15 lbs by the end of November. I have a little post-it note on my computer monitor that just says 15 on it to remind me. I also painted my thumb nail with a 15 to ALWAYS remind me what my goal is.

What is your plan? How much weight do you lose per week?

  1. Nice blog on weight loss. We can also provide some good information on the same. Skinny cocktails that can help to loss extra weight . Eating a good fit for an entire day can go down in the twirl of thin mixed drink with debilitated determination.
