My story: an ex-Weight Watcher with Hashimoto's disease

I would really try to stick closer to a 15% cut rather than that 20%. Drop it too low and you will have less "wiggle room" in the future...

RE: My story: an ex-Weight Watcher with Hashimoto's disease
Ahh I think I may be going to low. Time to eat more! I'm finding this really hard lately. I just don't sit down and take the time to EAT! My toddler is starting that fun phase of throwing food, spitting or flipping out if I don't give her mine. Then the 5yo is very demanding in how she likes her food. It's pretty damn stressful. I'm going to do better!

Yeah it's a toddler marathon. I'm sweating and huffing and puffing-- she's a runner! Whew. I figure 3-5hrs is accurate considering I only got to the gym 2 days and it's usually not any cardio. I think my body is getting enough of that lol...

RE: My story: an ex-Weight Watcher with Hashimoto's disease
Remember, our formal workouts actually account for a very small percentage of our daily calorie burns. The bulk of it is made up simply by our normal body functions (BMR) and then the rest is by our daily activities (NEAT). I think a lot of people underestimate how active they are just in their normal lives (NEAT). Chasing after toddlers, laundry, shopping, cleaning... All of these things add up! Don't account for them, and you will be under-eating...

RE: My story: an ex-Weight Watcher with Hashimoto's disease
Oh they so add up! That's why when I was trying to lose weight the hard way (reducing calories or carbs drastically) I wondered why I wasn't stick skinny chasing down kids from morning till night. I get it now. laughing

Lost 3lbs total this month. I'm slowing heading back down to the weight I was when I started the reset. Now that I'm paying attention I can see it's working. Awesome progress for me as I wasn't *sure* a few weeks ago...

RE: My story: an ex-Weight Watcher with Hashimoto's disease
Well it went from an awesome feeling with the 3lb loss to the absolute horror of finding my *new size* while trying on clothing. UGH I am a size larger then I've ever been in dress pants. I'm also a size up on top and have always been just shy of an XL. Now I'm 1X. It was a sad, sad experience. I really thought I could wear a certain style then came to find in the dressing room how ridiculously bad some styles looked-- no matter how well plus size clothing is made, it just doesn't always looks flattering like you expect it to. It was business wear so that means FRUMPY for my size and there's no way around it.

Taking a break and eating at TDEE this week based on my new weight. I am finding that really hard! My body got used to what I was doing... hoping to kick up the workouts (I'm lifting heavy) now that the toddler is sleeping better!

I can totally sense your frustration and I hope that over time things get easier.

RE: My story: an ex-Weight Watcher with Hashimoto's disease
I've been doing MUCH better with tracking food and am still feeling smaller lately though not seeing huge results. But these new pics I put side by side are showing more progress and I'm excited about that. Just spent the last 5 weeks lifting heavy on the machines and am also seeing some gains there. I can do much more weight then I'd thought and that felt so damn good!

RE: My story: an ex-Weight Watcher with Hashimoto's disease
Good work! Remember, changes aren't going to be huge very quickly. But if you keep taking pictures, it will show. It took me months and months to see some big changes. But it's worth it!

I can see some serious changes in your face - that's where I noticed my changes first. Your jawline is more pronounced!
