Rebalancing My Calorie Limit

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Sun, 02/25/2007 - 6:37am.

This week I am down to 161.5 lbs. for a total lost of 31.5 lbs since I started.

This week I also exchanged emails with my coach Barry on the idea that I should lower my calorie count to 8X my body weight now to continue losing at 2+ lbs a week. He was very much against the idea and cautioned me not to do it and stick with my original calorie limit.

His rational was that I needed to learn that a diet is not a short term weight loss program, but a life long way of living so I needed to learn to live at a reasonable calorie limit so I don't yo-yo and go back to my heavy weight once I achieve my goal.

I have also been thinking about my goal, why not shoot for 130?
