I'm doing bootcamps 4 days a week and consistently staying within my calorie limits and the scale has NOT MOVED! 😠😠

Keep doing what you're doing, the scale will catch up!! Always a challenge to be more stubborn than the scale but you'll get there!

Are you taking measurements or doing progress photos? If you're not losing weight OR inches, you probably need to reduce your calories. But you could be losing inches without losing pounds and the scale won't show that progress!

  • It’s Labor Day up here in Canada, so I decided to spend my morning on another long run. I’m excited to see that my average pace is down from 13’56” to 13’09”, I’ve shaved off almost a minute and at one point during the run I got up to about 9 minutes/ mile! Not quite as fast as my cross country days, but I’m working on it.

Six months post partum and started this transformer when I realized I had been gaining weight instead of losing it...
Finally back at the weight I came home from the hospital at! Ultimate goal is pre-pregnancy weight 😁

I’m nearly 12 months post partum. After my second baby I lost over 60 pounds. But after I got pregnant with my third I lost my job and became very depressed. I gained 75 pounds after the dust settled with baby #3 :sob:

I’m down 30 pounds from that though!! :muscle:

Avery

Congrats Machaela! I feel like this transformer is going to be great to keep us going :)

  • I’ve had a smoothie for breakfast every day since June 1st with raw baby spinach. Yesterday I was on the phone with my mom while I was making my smoothie and she told me I shouldn’t have raw spinach every day because the acid in the spinach can cause kidney stones! Googling says this is true...spinach has a lot of oxalate in it, which can form stones. Coincidentally, one of my friends just had surgery (two days ago) to remove a huge stone that she couldn’t pass after days of trying! I’ll be stepping away from the spinach for a while

I won’t be cutting it, I just won’t be eating it raw every single day.

Try kale in your shake instead, it has much less oxalate.

Like I said, this is years of research. I've been studying nutrition for 20 years and pharmacy for 12 years. I left the information here for people who don't have a plan and don't know anything about food tracking. It's a take it or leave it thing. Just trying to help.

No cognitive effects between groups limited to <40g carbs/day and high carb group after one year.

It's the RDA for carbs. The only organ in the body that is fueled solely by carbs is the brain and that's the minimum brain fuel required. Also, new studies show low carb diets are more prone to causing dementia. So like I said for weight loss and for temporary use there are acceptable reason for a low carb diet but it's not optimal for health and the long term.

  • January 1st until today. I’m so stoked! It’s really crazy- so many days feel like no progress, but I kind of forgot where I started this year... I did a diet bet for the first six months of the year, and am so looking forward to being part of this one for the next six. We’ve so got this, you guys!!! 💛💛

Can anyone recommend anything to lessen the appearance of stretch marks that are popping up as I lose weight?

I've used Bio-Oil for scars and it helps.

Avery

They will fade with time. Lots of different strategies to keep the skin healthy like moisturizers and things marketed to stretch marks but none in particular have any evidence behind them. There's some evidence for vitamin e for surgical scars. Make sure you use sunscreen and sun protection!! Sun damage will only make them worse and less likely to fade.
