performance: losing 1.1 lb a week

Never really athletic, I had such a high metabolism in my teens and twenties I just partied hard until the weight caught up with me. Now in my thirties, looking to stay active and doing the things I want to do; like ski and hike. Losing weight would be great - I just want to be healthy!

Share Your NSV's (Non Scale Victories)
Great job everyone! Its the way we feel and not just the scale that defines progress Smile

My NSV is that last weekend my mom told me that I must be pretty close to high school weight. That's almost 15 years ago! I wish I still had clothes from then to try on. I would love to see if my prom dress still fit, but I donated it a while ago. The best part is that I feel way more confident and fit than I ever did in HS, and mom is actually wrong - I am about 20lbs from HS weight, but I don't ever need to be and am ok with that!

Lemon Juice in water...is it really making a difference?
Not sure about the body chemistry stuff. I don't quite understand how lemon would make your body more alkaline - its a acid. Baking soda makes sense; its a base and people have been using it as an antacid for decades. Tums taste a lot better though Smile
Regardless, I think anything that gets you drinking water when you don't normally is probably a good thing.

A weird thing that I hear a lot about that might be good indirectly for weight loss is adding a tablespoon of cider vinegar to a glass of water. It supposedly eases pain in your joints (if your joints hurt you're probably less likely to exercise). I don't have joint problems so I haven't tried it, although a long distance hiker I know seems to find it very important in her routine. Certainly won't hurt you, although it probably tastes funky!

That lemon juice vs enamel is no joke though, I have some friends as real world examples (I am NOT a dentist nor hygienist). One guy who ate lemons as a teenager has really sensitive teeth and his dentist said his enamel looked like what a person in their 40s would have. He's 28! I imagine heavy soda drinkers and yes, the vinegar thing above would have similar effects, but lemon juice is much more acidic than soda or vinegar.

Is it possible I started dieting at to low of RDI?
Bump it up to something more sustainable. Starting that low right away may set you up for failure or frustration. Best to start slow.

Or, another method that works for some folks is to vary your RDI every day, like eat 1500 one day, 2400 another, etc. I found I self-regulate, so I eat a little bit more when I'm hungry and less when I'm not. Somedays I barely eat 1200 calories! At the end of the week I usually see a net loss. There are some free calculators for this method, your mileage may vary. You may want to consult a professional familiar with gall bladder issues to get a better idea of where to start.

They have a program in my neighborhood where you can trade food stamps for farmer's market tokens. The markets can be cheaper than the grocery store for fresh food (although not always). Maybe that is an option for you? Good luck!
