Wish the other August girls would get back in touch. Hope they are all doing ok
I am a bit concerned as I have not lost any weight for three weeks, in total I have loss 63 pounds (4.5 stones) since 1st August. what can I do to get pass this stage.? I can't do much exercise due to severe osteoarthritis in both my knees and lower back, however I have started to go for a walk at lunchtimes to get away from my desk and get some fresh air, although I can't walk very fast. I am eating between 800-900 calories and approx 35-45 grams of protein per day. Any suggestions?
I can do water based exercises but I have not ventured near a pool yet, it's so cold and dark after work that all I want to do is come home and wrap up in front of the TV! I must motivate myself to go although, the thought of getting into a swimming costume feels me with dread.Hi tranquil, it's hard if you are limited with mobility, I am still eating between 600-700 calories a day but we are all different! Hopefully your weight loss will kick start again so.
Can you do any upper body exercise or water based activity?
Thanks Lauren, I am trying to increase my protein intake by drinking two upbeat drinks a day (they are 150 cals each with 20g of protein). Unfortunately since the operation I can't keep down any meats or chicken so I tend to stick to fish, it's interesting to read that most you are able to eat chicken, ham, and sausages yet I cannot keep these down no matter how slow I chew!I also stalled for a number of weeks, my team said its really normal to stall around this time and for a long period of time!
I would suggest upping your protein I aim for 60g per day at no more than 1000 calories but rarely achieve 1000 on average it's 700/800
I find my best way to get my protein in is by using chicken as its low in fat and high in protein.
And for some reason find the ore cooked chicken pieces in the Ham section easier to manage. I just use them in my cooking now and add veggies and a bit of seasoning almost like a fajita chicken!
