WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO LOSE WEIGHT?

YOU KNOW WHAT IT TAKES, SO KEEP WORKING HARD AND GET IT DONE!!!

I choose my workouts because they are efficient and also work best for my high cortisol issues and they challenge me. I do small class workouts with my trainer and they consist of functional exercises (use several groups of muscles in each exercise) varying from heavy ST (heavy weights with varying levels of cardio) to metabolic days (lighter ST and higher cardio). ...
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO LOSE WEIGHT?

YOU KNOW WHAT IT TAKES, SO KEEP WORKING HARD AND GET IT DONE!!!

I choose my workouts because they are efficient and also work best for my high cortisol issues and they challenge me. I do small class workouts with my trainer and they consist of functional exercises (use several groups of muscles in each exercise) varying from heavy ST (heavy weights with varying levels of cardio) to metabolic days (lighter ST and higher cardio). The workouts include dumbbells, barbells, tires, sledgehammers, kettlebells, medicine balls, sleds, pushups, pullups, and more.

I eat to fuel my workouts and my day while running a calorie deficit. For me protein is most important, for muscle recovery, along with veggies and some low sugar fruit and occasional grains/starchy veggies.

Like everyone else life and life events affects my weight loss and I work to manage these elements in my life. Also, I have high cortisol issues and managing this is critical for me to lose weight. I recently discovered that adding in some testosterone (mine was very low) makes managing my cortisol much easier. Traditionally I have been very slow in losing weight (and quick to gain it when when life happens), but now with things balanced better I am only a little slower in losing weight and don't gain as much when life happens.


I have been with the BLC sparkteam http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/g
roups_individual.asp?gid=50602 since Dec 2011 and this has really helped me to push to stay on track every day.

I joined the 5% Challenge Community starting with the summer 2013 challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/g
roups_individual.asp?gid=60526 as I have heard that is also a good group.

Bottom line, I need to be serious and fight hard to get done Every Day all those 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 (still don't have that one down).

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 on workout days, 1200 on non workout days, with variation as needed for muscle recovery.
Work out 6x a week with trainer.

GOAL - add in second workout.
