WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO LOSE WEIGHT? ARE YOU DOING IT?

I am RESOLUTE to do DAILY what helps me lose weight.
I am a RENEGADE against not making weight loss a top priority.

I know what it takes for me to lose weight, it is the rest of life pulling me away that I struggle to resist.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO LOSE WEIGHT? ARE YOU DOING IT?

I am RESOLUTE to do DAILY what helps me lose weight.
I am a RENEGADE against not making weight loss a top priority.

I know what it takes for me to lose weight, it is the rest of life pulling me away that I struggle to resist.

For me to lose weight I need to be resolute in doing the things I know help me lose weight. Doing them every hour of every day of every week of every month, no matter what else is happening in my life. I need to fight against the things in life that pull on me to ignore my plans for the day (or longer).

I choose my workouts because they are efficient, they work best for my high cortisol issues and they challenge me. I love kettlebells and these days that is my workout, using them for both my ST and my Cardio workouts.

I eat to fuel my workouts and my day while running a calorie deficit. I call it Fuel and Fill food plan - fuel my body first, so I can do my workouts and get me thru my day feeling good. Then also fill me up so I am not too hungry. For me protein is most important, for muscle recovery. I have to be conscious about eating some healthy fats as I don't naturally eat fats and can be very hungry in the evenings if haven't eaten some healthy fats by then. I love veggies and eat those whenever I can, along with some low sugar fruits and occasional grains/starchy veggies.

I tend to under-eat, not eating often enough or enough when I do eat. So I need to be aware of that and work to eat regularly. Doing a morning workout helps a lot as body is often screaming for fuel afterwards and this helps me get the food in I need to fuel my body.

Like everyone else life and life events affects my weight loss and I have learned more over time how to manage these. I have high cortisol issues and managing this is critical for me to lose weight. I do this with supplements, getting enough deep sleep, and working to not have push hard crazy work days. Cortisol issues means I lose slower and gain quicker, so I need to be resolute every day to do what works for me so that the scale keeps going down.

Bottom line, I need to be serious and fight hard to get done Every Day all the things that I know helps me lose weight. And put my weight loss high on my priority list.

My Goals:
Get back to ideal adult weight, somewhere around 140-160 with healthy fat %

Learn how to do vacations without gaining even a lb (getting close but not quite there yet).

Learn how to NEVER get sucked into long work days where weight loss drops in priority.

My Program:
Eat fuel and fill food, with 95% of all bites being food that is fuel my body needs while filling me up. This comes out naturally to about 1500 calories, give or take some depending how much recovery my body is doing from workouts.

Work out 6x a week, lifting 10000 lbs a day on a good day (easier than it sounds, that is only 400 reps of 25 lbs, and if doing 3 sets of 10 reps, only 13 different exercises, or lift 100 lbs deadlifts for 10 sets of 10).

Personal Information:
I am in in my mid 50s and live in sunny Phoenix, AZ

emoticon for adding me as your friend! emoticon

I am just finishing "spring break" which was exhausting. Dentist, spaying the dog, grooming the cat, inspecting the truck, 3 yr check up at doctor, not eating ice cream at Dairy Queen and today trying to clean everything I never have time for. I have tons of work next week at work too...but it is all good. A productive week.

How is your husband feeling?

Excellent find!

Oh...you did not add me as a friend yet. emoticon I was checking my list...and just thought I would tell you. Things moved pretty quickly at the end of last round. emoticon

Ok..I admit it...I can't figure out how to do a CICO for our webpage. emoticon

So, the fitness minute is simply that...how long I exercised for that day?

I found out my BMR is 1240...those are the calories I should eat each day?

Cal deficit? Am I subtracting something? Fitness minutes to emoticon

How do I determine a weekly cal deficit or is this something I figure out once I start doing the rest?

I really want to do this right...good thing I started with the Renegades (a Renegade in training) early!

Thanks!

I logged my food today...looking for the best place to do it...as I have three choices...here, fitbit and loseit. com

emoticon for the advice!Sometimes the high step count with my fitbit cause trouble...I count IFM and not my fitbit steps. I get those high steps just running around the house but it does not seem to help me lose weight (as of yet).

I will work on getting the right formula for me. So glad that I have the rest of this round to figure all of this out.

Do you work from home? Do you have a desk job? I do sit at work but pace while I teach.. emoticon
