I Need Another Degree

Seriously, I need another degree to understand weight loss and gain.  I read a lot about good food choices, working out, and all those "secret" weight loss advantages.  However, I can't seem to figure out my own "system."

Last weekend I was crying the blues.  I had been super strict with my workouts and calorie counting but went up two pounds!  This weekend I was expecting more bad news because it had been such a hectic week, and I didn't workout as much.  Well, I was down a pound.  Ok, I guess I just have to keep working hard to get these last 15 or so pounds off my body.  I just can't seem to predict what the scale will read now.  When I was heavier, I was right on the money with a loss or gain. 

I'm still using myfitnesspal.com to journal my food.  A warning about the site: some calorie counts are incorrect.  If you use it, be sure to double check the calories.  I have found several errors - especially in restaurant calorie counts. 

Here's hoping for a week full of workouts and good food choices.


  1. Those last pounds are really hard to lose. Believe me I know. Have you changed up your workouts lately? That helped me when I was trying to lose the last few.

    My best advice is to keep tweaking what you are doing both in terms of exercise and food choices. You will find the right balance!

  2. Diane, I have been running more during my walks. I really, really want my gym to be the outdoors; however, I may have to break down and join a real gym. Thanks for the support.

  3. Liz, good luck with your weight loss. I have found that the paleo diet is the only diet that works for weight loss and keeping it off afterwards. The reason it works so well is because it lowers your insulin which makes your hunger level go down. In the past when I dieted on other diets I was always hungry, but on the paleo diet I didn't have the cravings for food all the time. Give the paleo diet a try and I am sure it will help you Liz.
