following: Athena63's own diet
performance: losing 3.5 lb a week

I have been wanting to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight for 17 years (my older son is 17). I've lost 20 lbs so far with another 25 or so to go.

In 2009, I ran my first 10k, in 2010 my first marathon, and in 2011, I finished a Half Ironman Triathlon.

Losing weight will make the sports I love easier and more fun. While training (or on vacation), I've gone up and down the same 10 lbs. Enough! I am re-training my brain to get to goal and stop the lose-gain-lose cycle.

I am motivated to do what it takes.

My birthday is 1 Decembe:d r. I started (this time) weighing 167. On my birthday, I will weigh 159 or less. Seven weeks, eight pounds. This is within my reach.

One more to go.

I'm almost there.

167: start
Goal 1 162 - kaching!
Goal 2 159 - kaching!
Goal 3 154
Goal 4 148 25% body fat

140 gram prot. Times 4 is 560 kcal
80 grams carbs times 4 is 360 kcal
60 grams fat times 9 kcal is 540 kcal
Total about 1460 kcal a day.

Breakfast about 300, lunch about 400, diner about 400. In between twice about
150 to 200 kcal.

Ho to Cope???
You might consider seeing your doctor and having some blood work done to check all your hormones. Sudden weight gain can be a sign of imbalance and illness.

The next step is to congratulate yourself on taking control and getting started on your journey back to full health. Then start keeping an accurate food log to check out what you're eating, how much, and which foods you're choosing. Reviewing the food log will then give you information about what changes you might make in your food choices to take you towards your goals.

Warm regards.

Weekend Woes. I need help!
one mental trick might be to write a post it note for yourself to keep in your wallet - what is your strongest motivation for weight loss. Read the note before going to the restaurant. Go wash your hands once you're there, and read it again. Once you have your head in the right place, your food selections might be easier. It's just a habit, and you can change it by planning ahead!

Does coconut oil help you stay in ketosis?
I made some energy snacks with coconut oil that were delicious. Unfortunately I found out what happens when you eat too much coconut oil at once. It has other "beneficial" effects on your digestive system.
