I have to consider if my November 15 weight loss "goal" of 140 lb is realistic. Maybe I best push it to the new year.<br><br>
What say you, mighty forum minds?

QN--<br><br>
As hard as it is to believe (because it is for me as well), your calories in and your calories out are most likely significantly off. I know that is tough to hear because it is hard for me to. But, the number game is just another way to beat yourself up. Foods are not properly labeled and you would have to physically weigh every single thing that goes into your mouth. Also, wherever your calories burned estimate is coming from, they are generally way off as well. The body is extremely adaptive and the more fit you become, the less calories you actually burn. So it is literally impossible for the average person to measure that. Finally, when you do think of the calories burned you have to subtract from that what you would normally have burned in that same time period. For example, if you ride your bike for an hour and estimate you burned 350 calories then you need to think about what you would have normally burned during that hour doing just normal stuff (housework, breathing, etc). Say that was 100 calories. Well, then you really only burned an extra 250 calories. Do you see what I'm saying?<br>
Having been through the eating disorder, as you have, I strongly suggest that you take it a bit easier on your self. Concentrate on eating a healthy balance and simply cutting out the easy stuff (i.e- liquid calories, candies, condiments, etc.). In my experience, the more i fixate on the numbers, the harder it becomes to lose. Try to focus on how much it takes to feel full and stopping when you get there. Feel what it feels like to be truly hungry and appreciate what your body can do. When you stop overevaluating, I think you will be pleased. Best of luck!

Oops I didn't update here.<br><br>
My weight isn't going anywhere, but my most recent measurements indicate a loss almost exactly in tune with the numbers.
