Well that didn't work - Weigh In
Don't get me wrong I wasn't expecting a 5 lb loss (I wasn't expecting it but I did dream about it last night!) but I thought at least 3. I KNOW I wasn't eating enough to support that kind of calorie burn but I wanted to see what would happen if I didn't change my calories.
In calculating what I'd have to be eating to burn 7500 cals per week I'm finding 2180-2530 which is in the minimal range I ate this past week so I don't quite get that. I think I might continue next week but add a healthy morning snack right after my workout of about 200-300 calories so I'm closer to mid-range and not hitting just below range or the very bottom and see what that does. If it does nothing, then I'm cutting the morning workouts. I just want to be able to say I've tried everything but I have to say I'll be really disappointed if I just lose the same amount I usually do. My body just seriously hates me and wants to hang on to every pound. I still have 150 lbs to go so I don't have time for slow downs or else it'll take me 5 more years of busting my ass and getting minimal results. *GRRR*
It should also be noted I'll be discontinuing the use of the aloe vera pills I was trying last week. After doing a little digging, I didn't like what I was reading on reputable site about taking it orally (you know, dehydration, kidney issues, death...stuff like that) so I figured that's enough for me to stop. That was my first full week taking it and I have no idea if that has anything to do with the lack of loss or not but it won't be an issue from this point on either way. Just thought it was worth noting.
