weight loss class!

It is my second weigh-in and I was not surprised but still disappointed. I did not lose any this week. I'll focus more this week and expect good results next week.

Some awesome and important tips I learned from the class for week three;
1) Eat breakfast, and eat it within 45minutes of getting up. Your metabolism will not burn calories all day no matter how much exercise you do that day if you do not eat within 45 minutes of waking up.
2)For women you should not consume less than 1200 calories per day or you will go into starvation mode and cling to your fat.
3)Any amount of cardio first thing in the morning will give your metabolism a great boost.
4) Drink lots of green tea. A good quality green tea will burn calories and increase your metabolism.
5)Also know that your body can only absorb 35 grams of protien at a time, so stretch it out throughout your day to get the full benefit.
6)Remember that no matter what you do to burn calories and fat, if don't eat within 45 minutes of waking you will not burn calories all day!!!

Everyone out there trying to lose weight, keep up the hard work and don't lose focus! We can do it!

I think it's easy to get discouraged and give up when you don't see the results you want. (And not just in the physical realm!)
Keep going, Christina. You're doing great!

"... I was not surprised..."
How often have we said that right after a weigh-in? (sigh)
Keep up the great work, and don't look at it as 'not losing', think of it as 'NOT gaining'!!
