I hadn't been counting calories because Ignite said I didn't need to. Just been using the Ignite app.
I'm eating within the first hour of waking up (8ish) then for lunch (12ish), snack (3.30ish) and dinner (7.30ish). Sometimes if I'm hungry I'll fit another snack into the day.
Thanks guys, yeah I'm feeling stronger and a bit firmer so I'm going to ignore the scales for the moment.
Thanks Maryjane828. I'm still going with Ignite- I'm determined to finish the challenge whatever the results so I can say I've done it. I am feeling better so it's not a waste of time. I'm also continuing to push myself with exercise- in fact I'm really starting to enjoy myself. Hopefully, eventually, I'll see the results I deserve.
I'm on Day 13. I'm pretty proud of myself to have not slipped once, exercising every day (very stiff!) and although I felt better (less bloating, sleeping better, more energised, less stressed), which is enough motivation to help me get through the last week, I didn't see any change in the mirror. I gave in and jumped on the scales today and I haven't lost any weight. My muscle and fat percentage haven't even changed.
I've always had problems losing weight, so as you can imagine this has gotten me a bit down. Going to keep trying as it feels like I'm doing everything right.
Only thing I can think of:
- Maybe I'm using too much good oils? Too much of a good thing?
