I've always been very strong with chubbiness, but I'm not a couch potato. I am finally committing to a healthy lifestyle, and believe me, I'm not going to stop until I get what I want--determination isn't the problem. My starting goal was to lose 25 pounds, and I'm currently at 29 days out of 84 (Cardio Sculpt) completing consecutive daily workouts. At this point, I've only lost 2.3 lbs (and I know how to properly weigh myself) and I've been eating anywhere from 1100-1500 calories a day... I don't really count, because I don't eat junk food, except for the occasional treat. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, drink TONS of water... water, water, water, never anything else...
I'm a patient person, and I'll keep working... But is there something I should change to start seeing results on the scale? I see the change in my measurements and on my body, but not on the scale. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Just give it time? What's going on?
On an every day basis--
I have a printout of my workout calendar with the video titles on it. It kills me to not put a star over a day, so I end up doing it.
When I just don't feel it--
I make myself put on workout clothes and shoes, play the video and stand there. I don't allow myself to sit, giving me two options-- stand there pointlessly for the duration, or do the work... even if I just follow the modifier.
Nike for strength/cardio, barefoot on yoga mat for yoga/stretch.
Of course, different videos make you move different ways, so always do what's comfortable and safe.
Thank you, I think I'll start doing that. I was reading about "creeping calories" and it makes sense.
