Weigh in Wednesday #22

Weigh in Wednesday #22... Starting weight 273 today is 192.. I love love love my band. Total loss 81 so far.
Mini Goal  173 ( 100 Lbs Loss) by Nov 24th ( half marathon day).... 19 Lbs to go, with 11 1/2 wks to do it :)

Over the last couple wks Ive looked back at MFP entries for the last several months. In Aug I tried a 1200 cal a day plan. I have discovered this DOES NOT work for me( maybe one day in maintenance but not now). I sit on my tail WAY TO MUCH... really all the time except when I am working out... SO I now aim for 1050 calories a day( still 100 gr protein) and I'm seeing MUCH better results.Sometimes I think its crazy how many some people can eat and how little others need... My hubby can eat WAY more calories than me and never gain, sometimes loose. BUT with that said he is on his feet doing farm chores most of the day moving, walking, bending... NOT ME I sit at my desk 9+ hours a day.

Anyways 1050 is fine with me and I am satisfied so that's all that matters..

On a different note... Does anyone else stay cold now that you are thinner... I freeze all day. Sometimes at work I got outside just to warm up. I keep a heater under my desk and a sweater on all day. Its crazy, I assume its because a lot of  my insulation is gone.

Anyways I hope yall on have a great hump day !

  2. Are we MFP friends? If not, we need to be. I want to know how you are getting in 100 gr protein each day. Awesome job on your loss!

    1. Nope I only got a couple MFP Friends not sure how to "search " for people to see who all uses it.. I am listed as christyflick if you want to pull me up and friend me :) My typical day is Chike Iced coffe shake for bfast I make with 4 oz milk and 6 oz water.. then lunch I do tuna or FF sandwich turkey rolled around a string cheese or ckn salad... sometimes If Im tight i just do another shake but that only happens a day or two a month.. I like to eat my lunch and dinners :)then about 230 or 3 i have a dannon light and fit greek yogart...always key lime pie flavor Im so hooked on those...a lot of times i need another little snack right before I get off work like 430 or 5 so i can make it through my work out( i dont get home till 730 or so from the gym) so cottage cheese 4 oz or string cheese IF i havnt had one or Herbalife protein drink.. not shake, has 15 grams of protein in it. Then for dinner meat and veggies, Chicken is my favorite but hubby has to have red meat once and a while :)
