Lost 2.4 lbs eating 1900 cals
So I'll admit, I used to think as a morbidly obese woman, the Eat More 2 Weigh Less was not for me!!! I figured, these ladies already had a small body fat and I had a pretty large percentage of body fat, so I figured let me "cut" my calories and eat at 1400-1500 calories a day in hopes of losing weight and then I would jump on board and get ripped laughing. Well after 2 weeks of nothing I decided what the heck... And I recalculated my TDEE cut 15% with 1-3 days light exercise and I took the plunge at 1898 calories a day. I enjoyed eating fat, protein and carbs. For the month of March I decided I would drink 99 oz of water and for my first week of eating 400 calories more, I lost 2 lbs. I don't know if it was the water flush or what... But who would have thought... I'm now reading Strong Women Stay Young and it supports the eating and strength training. It has some awesome studies on women who just did calorie deficit versus women who ate regular and strength trained. The women with calorie deficit diets, lost muscle, but the women who did strength training and ate regular, lost inches, became slender and gained muscle... WIN WIN!!!

So now I'm at 194.2... I haven't even been able to get to this number on a fastlaughing Woo Hoo

RE: Lost 2.4 lbs eating 1900 cals
Yay!!!! I love this! So many people convince themselves that they shouldn't start this process if they're heavier. Couldn't be farther from the truth. The longer the journey, the higher we should try to start our cals at.

The calorie intake required will naturally drop on its own as we lose weight, so no need to drop them too early! That's a fast track to plateau territory. wink

So happy for you, girl!!

ETA: even if it were *only* water weight, you still increased your cals by 400, and didn't GAIN! That says it all right there!

RE: Lost 2.4 lbs eating 1900 cals
So true Raynn! I've often thought of the fact that at some point I will be eating less due to less body weight (even thought it will still be eating more compared to what many who are trying to look good eat) and how that's going to be hard. It's funny that once upon a time I at 1400 calories a day in order to lose weight and now I know when I get down in the 1800-1900 range (I'm expecting that's where I'll end up once all the extra weight is gone) how I'm scared I'll feel deprived!
