Week 6 weigh in (Jennifer)

I weighed in this morning at 184.5. I lost 2 lbs this week for a total of 22 lbs in 6 weeks. I am still pretty sore from my last workout with Tony Little. I love that sore feeling because it makes me feel like my hard work is paying off(even if my butt muscles are so sore that it hurts to sit :). This weight is new territory for me since I was able to get as low at 186.5 last year before gaining 20 back. I did realize that although I may be on the slower end of losing (Medifast says 2-5 lbs per week average) that I am nearing the 170's. Now...THAT would be something for me to celebrate. And I do believe that later today I will speak with my husband about throwing a little incentive in there. I will have to think about that one. Maybe every 5 lbs from here on out I can get some kinda little "treat"?

I am not feeling much of a difference this week though as far as feeling thinner. I am excited to come across one of the little things that makes me realize the weight is being Tricia's experience at the restaurant. That is awesome Trish. You are really making progress!!! These seemingly little differences really are huge!

I know that 2 lbs is great but I cant help but wondering if there is SOMETHING I can do to speed up the weight loss. I am exercising 5-6 times a week and staying on plan. I may try to play around with some variables to see if I can find that "sweet spot" they are always talking about on Biggest Loser. I may be exercising too much for the amount of calories I am taking in. Or not enough? Could I add an extra MF meal in for a few days? Or more protein? I think I am going to ask my health coach about it. But really I am happy with 2 lbs. It seems to be the weigh loss area my body likes.

Trish is coming out to my house for a few days and I am excited. I plan for us to exercise together although I have not told her that yet :) Maybe just a walk along the lake or maybe a double date with Tony Little since I know she likes him too.

Today's reason for losing weight:
*to wear skirts above the knee. Not a mini skirt but a regular summer skirt or skort that I dont have to worry about what it looks like when I sit down. I would like my legs to look nice although they would look even nicer had I not gotten a scar for the rest of my life from my cousin at HER LAST VISIT...

Hi Jennifer. Thanks for the comment on my blog. 2 lbs is nothing to sneeze about! It is great and obviously you are headed in the right direction. I find that increasing my calories a little every now and again makes all the difference. I think the body just goes oh no when the calories are so low and we are exercising. Try it for a few days and I bet the body will say ok. We are not starving here! I will keep you posted on the body bugg. So far, I don't find their web site easy to work with. It won't let you set a target of greater than 2.4 lbs a week to lose. I find that a bit constricting.

I am considering MediFast to lose about 150 pounds. I want to start now and not waste time, but we are headed into the holidays and although I don't want to use that as an excuse to overindulge and not "diet", let's be realistic here. My question is: would this plan be good to start right now? I don't know how I could do it during the holidays to be quite honest!! What is your recommendation?
