Week 4 of cdcc

Well this week has been a real challenge, I went to the doctor on Wednesday and gained 6 lbs. I weighed myself this morning and I weighed 172.4, so I did lose some weight I guess. I'm still upset with myself. My pedal on my stationary bike broke so now I'm out of luck when it comes to cycling. I have been trying to walk more and do yoga longer, I will do my ZUMBA this week to take the place of riding the bike.I have been eating apples as a snack this week, next week it will be bananas.I don't know how to take the fact I almost gained the whole 8 pounds I lost and I have been eating right and working out daily, I guess it doesn't help I could do much on Monday and Tuesday because of migraines. I want to be at least 150 by the 1st week of December.. Do u think it's possible or am I stretching it?


  1. 150 by Dec 3 would mean a loss of 2.8 lbs a week. That's totally doable. It means REALLY tracking those calories and getting that heart rate up every day.

    Are you using a calorie tracker? There are a lot of great ones online. I'd suggest It's helped me immensely.

    Personally, I find that I lose the most when I'm the most active. Exercise! Exercise! Exercise!

  2. It´s a big goal, but if you really want it, you can do it!

  3. 2.8 pounds a week is only doable on a very strict caloric regimen and exercise. Are you willing to invest in that rigidity? If no, then release the number and focus on doing the right things, and you land where you land.

    As much as exercise does a ton of great things for the dieter, the important thing is INTAKE..caloric intake. How are you doing in that dept? To lose 3 lbs a week, you need a caloric deficit of 3 x 3500 cals a week, that is 10,500 calorie deficit, roughly. That's MORE than a 1000 calorie a day deficit. THINK HARD ABOUT THAT.

    First, how much do you need to MAINTAIN the weight you're at, daily. Then you need to reduce your daily intake so the caloric deficit from what it takes to maintain and what you're eating shows a deficit = to about 1500 a day.

    I don't see that as realistic for lighter folks. For heavy folks who are eating and maintaning at 3000 or 2500 calories, that would mean eating 1500 less a day, or 1500 to 100 calories.

    If you maintain at, say 1700, that means you have to eat 200 calories a day or eat 1200 and burn 1000 extra a day.

    See the quandary? See the dilemma?

    I say choose a sound losing caloric level--roughly 1200 to 1300 calories of nutritious, no junk, no sugar, no crap, work out how you like and can regularly, and see how much you can lose a week doing that. THEN figure out what you will weight by December.

    Aiming for 3 lbs a week when you are not that huge is setting yourself up for some major frustration...imo. :-/

  4. Thanks, since you put it in that perspective I want to make it at least 155 by the first week of December

  5. You can do it. Dedication and you can do it. You have the will, the knowledge and more.
    Good luck. Take care and God Bless!!

  6. It's not easy to do but it can be done if you are totally committed and determined to stick to no more than 1,200 calories a day. Princess laid it out well.

    Here's to a good week and a great weigh in next week! :)

  7. Im sorry tay:( you will get it off in no time. Keep your head up! O and I think 155 is reasonable YOU CAN DO IT!!!

  8. "If no, then release the number and focus on doing the right things, and you land where you land." Princess Dieter bringing the wisdom! IMO, it's more than possible for you to feel great, to be super proud of yourself for the progress you made, to be healthier, and to look hot in the dress you picked out! Keep on doing what you're doing, eating healthy snacks and working out, and all that will happen, so who cares what the scale says? :)

  9. Yes, listen to Mir and do the math! Focus on doing the right things, right, and the rest will follow in it's own time.

  10. I don't think it's bad to have 150 be your goal. As long as we aren't too disappointed if we don't get there.. getting to 158 or something is better than not getting anywhere at all.


  11. It's always great to have goals and it is a doable one if you have the ability to stick to healthy eating and exercise. You just have to want it bad enough, you can do it!!
