I'm making a Corporate Decision

So my corporate decision is that I am going down to 26pts. I've been at 28pts for FOREVER ( I looked back 7months i've been at 28pts) and I 'm hovering around these 226-229 range (normaly you go down to 26pts at 225lbs) with dips either way. I will try it for a week and see what gives. I also want to note that I am kicking it up a notch at the gym and will be eating most if not all of my AP's (yesterday I earned 11-12pts) and I tend to eat most of my FP so I don't think I will be lacking points but I feel like there has to be a 'shift' somewhere.

I looked back and I started (again) back on track May 25th weighing in at 232.4 and now, 5 weeks later I am 227.2 so that is about 1 pound a week. Which I guess is respectable, but I would have (hoped) thought that with my exercising it would be more. I would hope for a 1% loss each week, which would be at least 2lbs at my present weight.

So on the exercise note, I am loving running and yesterday I ran 3miles! I did it in around 40min and I also did a 5min warm up and 5min cool down so on the treadmil for 50min. Boy was I sweating! I have a mini schedule I'm going to follow/work up to during the summer and if I do good and feel good about it I might have bigger plans come the fall!!!

Wow! You've made amazing progress. I found your blog after stumbling on to Colette's.

One thing I want to say to this post is I am firm believer in never EVER questioning your rate of loss. As long as you're losing then you're on the right path. A little over a pound a week is what I've averaged.

The name of this game, IMHO, is consistency not speed. Stick to it no matter what and you'll see the payoffs in the end.
